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.
