While the 960fps videos are recorded at 720p, the camera is also capable of recording 4K video with SteadyShot 5-axis digital stabilization.
In addition, the front-facing camera on the Xperia XZs and XZ Ultra have also been upgraded to a 13-megapixel sensor with a 22mm wide-angle lens.
We've already covered the specs on the Xperia XZ Premium, so we'll skip straight to the Xperia XZs which is the updated version of last year's Xperia XZ which came out in late 2016.
