Xperia XZ Premium is Sony Mobile’s most groundbreaking smartphone to date with new Motion Eye™ camera system, the world’s first 4K HDR display[2] and Qualcomm®’s latest Snapdragon® 835 processor.  

Sony Mobile Communications (“Sony Mobile”) today announced that Xperia XZ Premium will be coming to Canada and available for purchase unlocked on beginning in early September 2017 with suggested retail pricing available at the time of retail launch. Something important to note *Carrier partners* not currently announced.

Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium is a new innovative flagship smartphone that combines the world’s first super slow motion camera system in a smartphone with Sony’s triple image sensing (predictive hybrid autofocus, laser autofocus, RGB-IR) technology to capture amazing details beyond the human eye and enables advanced features and excellence in picture quality. Also for the first time in a smartphone, Xperia XZ Premium features a 4K HDR display for astonishing brightness, colour, clarity and contrast of users’ images, videos, games and other entertainment. 

Encapsulating decades of Sony innovation, Xperia XZ Premium incorporates imaging know-how embedded in Sony ‘α’ and Cyber-shot™ cameras to create the new Motion Eye™ camera system, for capturing life in ways no other smartphone can. 

With Motion Eye, Xperia XZ Premium provides 5X faster image processing and data transfer. This means users can create sensational videos from everyday moments by recording at 960 frames per second, which provides super slow motion video playback that is 4X slower than other smartphones. 

Xperia XZ Premium also features Predictive Capture that allows users to stay one step ahead and automatically starts buffering images when it detects motion even before the camera button is pushed. As a result, users can find that moment they may have missed from a selection of four photos taken two seconds before even taking a shot. 

And, with its 4K HDR 5.5-inch display, Xperia XZ Premium delivers a truly unique Sony experience, using Sony’s BRAVIA® TV technology to give users an immersive viewing experience on their smartphones. The latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset provides increased processing power and graphics performance to this incredible device. Xperia XZ Premium is also loaded with Smart STAMINA battery management, a machine learning system which accurately estimates how much battery usage is left based on improved analysis on users’ behaviours and patterns. The feature avoids excess charging to support the lifestyle of the user and the lifecycle of the device.

The chrome details pair with the sturdy Gorilla® Glass 5 finishes along the front and back to emphasize the smartphone’s seamless loop design form. The top and bottom are encased in aluminium and use a double-anodizing process to emphasize the metallic expression.

The Xperia XZ Premium will be available in two colours: Luminous Chrome and Deepsea Black at launch in Canada.
