Xperia XZ Premium takes Sony's flagship device to a new level with the integration of the brand new Motion Eye™ camera. Sony imaging know-how from both ‘α’ and Cyber-shot™ cameras means you get 960fps Super slow motion video, Predictive Capture and all the added quality benefits of the redesigned G lens and new Bionz™ for mobile image processing engine.  Image and video playback look incredible on the 5.2” Full HD display which is integrated into the loop surface design with the ALKALEIDO™ metal back creating a premium shine and feel. With its high end processor it’s quick off the mark for downloads and streaming as well as seamlessly running the intelligent user interface. A host of intelligent features such as Smart Stamina run on the Xperia learning engine which together with Battery care and Qnovo Adaptive Charging brings you reliable all day battery throughout the product lifespan. Whilst Xperia Actions can make your life easier by suggesting location based map downloads or usage based automatic setting changes.
