Sony Xperia XZ Premium might not have a name easy to remember, but there is one feature that sets it apart from all the other Xperia handsets recently unveiled by the Japanese company. According to the official press release, this new handset offers "the world’s first super slow motion video in a smartphone," but is also the first one to feature a 4K HDR display.

These are the highlights of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 64 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 256 GB
  • Display: 5.5-inch Triluminous 4K HDR with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, X-Reality engine

  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB Type-C, fingerprint reader
  • Operating system: Android 7.1 Nougat
  • Battery: 3,230 mAh with Quick Charge 3.0 and Smart STAMINA mode

Sadly, the Xperia XZ Premium is not going on sale right away. This handset is expected to hit the US market this spring for a price that should be disclosed then, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
