Sony Put that Insane 960fps Sensor In Their New Xperia XZ Smartphones

Xperia Agent is also being used for a new cloud AI platform built in cooperation with messaging company Line, which Sony said will offer "a new communication experience". The Xperia XZ Premium will also have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the XZ Premium will fare in our Smartphone Camera Showdown.

With a staggering 800ppi resolution, the Xperia XZ Premium's 5.5in display is double the pixel count of the iPhone 7, which is not hard to believe when you see it in the flesh.

The Xperia XZ Premium is the top product that was announced by Sony, and it became one of the first phones to be announced with newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC (albeit availability is a different issue). It also boasts of a 1Gbps LTE modem inside. Sony claims that the ' World's fastest image capture technology in a smartphone' allows the camera to capture instances that occur in the blink of an eye and reveal things beyond what the human vision is capable of seeing.

Unlike the LG G6, which has eschewed Qualcomm's latest processor - the Snapdragon 835 in favour of the older Snapdragon 821 in order to gain the first mover advantage over the Galaxy S8, Sony has chose to stick with the 835 for the XZ Premium. Although Sony has yet to share battery expectations for the XZ Premium's 3240 mAh battery, the company did divulge that the phone would include Smart Stamina battery management, which uses machine learning to determine phone usage and give more exact estimates of remaining battery life. The front camera also bears the same specifications. Pricing info will follow soon. As with the Xperia Ear, the new device is powered by the Sony Agent personal assistant, which uses voice interaction and head gestures like nodding and tilting to interact hands-free. The highlight of this device is the borderless (side) edge-to-edge display, though you do get bezels on the top and bottom. Inside, the phone has a MediaTek Helio P20 SoC, with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and microSD expansion. It will ship with Android Nougat and features a 19-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2,900mAh battery. Video recording is limited to 1080p with no support for 4K.

The newest model of wireless earphones from Sony is a departure from the version introduced by the Japanese company previous year.

The mid-tier Xperia XA1 Ultra and X1 smartphones (available Spring 2017 and May 1, respectively) both offer 23 megapixel cameras. The front camera is where the upgrade comes in, with the front selfie camera now being a 16MP shooter with OIS, dedicated flash and f/2.0 aperture. The XA1 and XA1 Ultra will be released starting this spring in white, black, pink, and gold.

Along with its new name, the 5-inch device sports a new look as well.
