XZ-Premium

New Delhi, 1st June, 2017: Sony India today announced its most ground-breaking smartphone to date, Xperia XZ Premium, powered by an amazing 4K HDR display, super-fast download speeds, a stunning loop design and a camera so advanced that it captures motion that the human eye can’t see, and also powered by many more intelligent features.

World’s First Smartphone with a 4K HDR Display
For the first time ever in a smartphone, Xperia XZ Premium features a 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range, 2160 x 3840) 13.97 cm display. A truly unique Sony experience, it uses Sony’s BRAVIA TV technology to give you an immersive 4K HDR viewing experience in the palm of your hand, removing the constraints of your sofa. Astonishing brightness, colour, clarity and contrast are realised to create levels of realism you almost feel part of the scene. The sharp, vivid quality of the display is enriched by Sony’s native technologies TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile, X-Reality for mobile and Dynamic Contrast Enhancer.

XZ-Premium

Timeless design with reflective surface
With so many advanced technologies working in harmony, it is only fitting that the Xperia XZ Premium has a harmonious design to match, making it beautiful on the inside and out. The exterior has an exquisite glass loop surface which when turned over reveals a reflective surface on the back. Every aspect of the XZ Premium is unified, from its seamless flowing lines and intuitive fingerprint sensor power button to the Diamond cut finish on top and bottom of the phone.

XZ-Premium

Rain is one less thing to think about when you’re out and about with the Xperia XZ Premium. It’s water resistant3, dust-proof and reinforced with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 on the front and back of the handset, taking beauty and durability to new heights.

XZ-Premium

Powerful performance with Gigabit-class LTE connectivity
Xperia XZ Premium is powered by the cutting edge Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile Platform, making it one of the very first smartphones capable of Gigabit Class LTE (up to 1Gbps4). This is possible because of the integrated Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, which has the potential to transform how customers use their mobile devices by delivering fibre optic speeds on the go. The Snapdragon 835 platform also supports stunning graphics, superior performance and enhanced battery efficiency. File transfers are also supercharged thanks to the USB 3.1 connection which is 10 times quicker than USB 2.0 with a transfer speed of up to 5Gbps. And with the USB Type-C™ socket, plugging in is easy because the connector is always the right way up.

XZ-Premium

Ground-breaking Motion Eye™ camera with Super Slow Motion and Predictive capture
Encapsulating decades of Sony innovation, Xperia XZ Premium incorporates imaging know-how embedded on Sony ‘α’ and Cyber-shot™ cameras to create the new Motion Eye™ camera system, for capturing life in ways no other smartphone can. Featuring a memory stacked Exmor™ RS sensor with technologies usually only found on premium cameras, it provides 5x faster image scanning and data transfer. This enables you to create sensational videos from your everyday moments by recording in 960 frames per second, providing Super slow motion video playback that is four times slower than other smartphones5 giving you more detail than has ever been possible in the palm of your hand.

XZ-Premium

Predictive Capture stays one step ahead and automatically starts buffering images when it detects motion even before you press the button, so you can find a moment your eye may just have missed from a selection of up to four shots taken a second before you clicked. On top of this, the new 19MP high resolution sensor has 19% larger pixels to capture more light and provides exceptional detail and sharp images even in low-light and backlit conditions. Additional improvements have been made inside Motion Eye™ to the Bionz™ for mobile processing engine meaning it detects moving objects more precisely to enable Predictive Capture. Clarity, detail and texture are also improved to give exceptional image quality thanks to the redesigned G lens with high optical clarity.

XZ-Premium

Studio-like sound experience with High Resolution Audio
The Sony experience is continued through to the audio and gaming capabilities. High Resolution Audio playback allows you to hear every nuance and detail in a track as if you’re right there with the artist. Sony’s native DSEE HX™ technology even up-scales streamed tracks or MP3s to near High-res quality and if you connect with wireless speakers or headphones, LDAC ensures you don’t lose a drop of sound quality by transferring three times more audio data than normal Bluetooth.

XZ-Premium

Working with your PlayStation®4 console, you can play the latest cutting-edge games on your Xperia XZ Premium. Its advanced processing and fast memory access means gameplay is always smooth and responsive, plus the 4K screen and powerful stereo speakers make it feel like you’re actually in the game.

XZ-Premium

Smart Actions
Taking intelligence to the next level Xperia XZ Premium learns how you use your phone and adapts and makes recommendations to give you our most smartest and personal experience yet. The battery is maximised with Smart Stamina which uses the Xperia learning engine to accurately estimate how long your current battery will last based on your normal usage. It even warns you if it detects you’re going to run out of power later that day and prompts you to activate Stamina mode. Battery Care6 and Qnovo Adaptive Charging are also included to protect your battery and keep it healthy up to twice as long.

Xperia Tips and new Xperia Actions offer you handy advice about the features you’re using and even suggests map downloads based on your location, all aimed at making life that little bit easier.

Battery Care
The phone is mostly charged overnight, but if left plugged-in after it’s fully charged, battery life degrades. Battery Care solves this by learning the user wake up time. It charges to 90%, pauses and then tops up to 100% to just before the user usual.

Quick Charge
Xperia XZ Premium comes with quick charger, UCH-12, bundled with the phones as supplied accessory. With QC-3.0 charging the phone can be charged 60% in 45 minutes.

USB Type C connecter
Xperia XZ Premium comes equipped with latest Type C USB connector for faster data transfer and charging speeds.

Android N out of the box
The latest and most updated version of Android OS is available out of the box in Xperia XZ Premium.
