Sony Returns to the Flagship Arena with Xperia XZ Premium

Reymart Sarigumba

After Sony launched their new flagship smartphone, the Xperia XZ Premium, at the Mobile World Congress, consumers, as well as rivals, are eyeing the release of the device. This is because it sports new features and improvements over its previous version, the Xperia XZ.

Sony follows the “bezel-less” trend as the Xperia XZ Premium comes with a display whose glass surface goes all the way around the handset. Sony called this design a “glass loop” surface, which comes with metal finishing at the top and bottom of the device. What’s more, the glass surface is Corning Gorilla Glass 5, one of the latest in glass solutions, that can withstand 1.6-meter drops onto hard surfaces. Also, Sony has made the flagship thinner than its predecessor, the Xperia XZ, which launched in 2016.  It also houses a fingerprint sensor which is an easy and secure way to lock your device.

As for the camera, Sony adapted the photographic technology they used in their high-end cameras to come up with a Motion Eye system integrated on the Xperia XZ Premium. Together with 19 MP sensor on the back, users will be able to shoot clear, detailed images in low or bright lighting conditions.

In the specs departments, the Xperia ZZ premium runs on a Snapdragon 835 chipset, one of Qualcomm’s newly launched processors. With that advanced chipset comes a “Gigabit-Class LTE” capability which allows the device to have a download speed of up to 1 Gbps. The processor also enables users to play games from their PlayStation 4 consoles on their smartphones, something mobile gamers will surely adore.

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium will soon be available in shops sometime in June. Its estimated price should be around 3000 RM in Malaysia, 5000 HKD in Hong Kong, 32,000 PHP in the Philippines, and 900 SGD in Singapore.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium is one of the hottest flagships to arrive this year. All of the rumors surrounding its features faded into oblivion when Sony attended the Mobile World Congress this year. Sony revealed that the Xperia XZ Premium delivers videos in slow motion, capable of shooting 960 frames per second. It also hosts an impressive 4k HDR display. Aside from these, the flagship comes with a decent IP68 rating for water and dust resistance. Sony is following the footsteps of its rivals like Apple and Samsung that host this kind of protective feature. The XZ Premium is also equipped with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that covers its 5.5-inch IPS LCD HDR display. Beneath its stunning display lies a powerful Snapdragon 835 chipset as well as eight cores clocked at 2.45 GHz and 1.9 GHz with Adreno 540 GPU.

Sony’s premium flagship also never falls behind when it comes to its storage capacities. The XZ Premium can hold up to 64 GB of internal storage and can be expanded up to 256 GB through a micro SD card. It is also loaded with the latest Android version which is the Nougat. In terms of the battery, the flagship is packed with a 3200 mAh battery.

There weren’t many mentions about Sony’s flagships in terms of their camera but this time they probably will with the XZ Premium’s powerful 19 MP back camera and a 13 MP decent front snapper. After its big reveal, there have been only a few reports about its official release date. It was announced that the flagship will be shipped to users starting June 1st. The same date is listed for the XZ Premium’s listing on Amazon UK. For South East Asian markets, there’s no official date as of yet. In terms of price, the flagship is believed to be at least 2820 RM in Malaysia, 5,050 HKD in Hong Kong, 32,375 PHP in the Philippines, and 915 SGD in Singapore.
