The Xperia XZ Premium is the world's first smartphone that has a 4K HDR display. It also features 960fps slow motion video, something that the company pointed out as one of their biggest accomplishments, and anti-distortion shutter.

 

As noted before, the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 835 and comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, expandable with a microSD card.

The Xperia XZ Premium comes with a 5.5-inch display, and the Gorilla Glass 5 wraps around the entire phone giving it a fancy look.

 

The device rocks a 19MP main camera and 13MP selfie cam. It is also worth noting that the Xperia XZ Premium is waterproof (IP68), and comes with a 3,230 mAh battery.

 

The phone will be available in two colors - Luminous Chrome and Deepsea Black, but the company has yet to reveal the price. It is also unknown when the phone will be available; the company mentioned "late spring," meaning that the Xperia XZ Premium might not be the first Snapdragon 835 powered phone in the market.
