Finally, the curtains has been pulled off from the first ever Snapdragon 835 Smartphone and the one who made it possible is not Samsung or LG it is the Sony who has Successfully acquired this deal to be the first one to present the Snapdragon 835 processor Smartphone dubbed as a “Xperia XZ Premium”
As per the specs, it comes with 5.5 inches 4K Display with support of HDR imagery and protected by “Glass Loop Surface” (Gorilla Glass 5, specifically) that wraps around the whole phone and as we already told you that Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 takes all the control with Adreno 540 along with 4GB RAM and 64GB Internal Storage & up to 256 GB MicroSD support.
In the camera department, we tend to see some changes from Sony, as a new 19MP camera introduced with 960fps slow motion video – that allows to slow down time 4x slower than current cameraphones. It also features an “anti-distortion shutter” which minimizes rolling shutter. The bad part about it is the slow-mo video is captured at 720p, not 1080p. It’s backed by Predictive and Laser autofocus, plus an RGBC-IR sensor for natural color rendering. The front camera comes with 13MP (1/3.06”) sensor with a 22mm wide-angle lens.
As per the design, Sony called it as the masterpiece basically “Luminous Chrome.” – It is polished to as such sheen that it is nearly a perfect mirror in short. The top of the band is metal while the sides are plastic. It’s a shame Sony didn’t opt for a metal back—more glass means a more fragile phone. On the plus side, Sony has given the device an IP68 ingress protection rating.
Other features include a 3,230mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 to fill it up and Qnovo tech to prolong it’s life along with a USB-C port. The Power button will double as a fingerprint reader… though it will be disabled in some regions like in U.S (as per the reports) Its runs on Android 7.0
The Sony Xperia XZ Premium flagship is set to launch at some point in “late spring”, price is still unknown
