Sony’s flagship Xperia XZ Premium makes its way to India

Sony XZ Premium

Sony’s brought along the Xperia XZ Premium to India, with the brand effectively becoming the first to launch a Snapdragon 835-running device in the country. Other than its SoC chops, the flagship handset is packed to the gills with top-of-the-line features.

Top among them is a 19MP Motion Eye rear camera that specializes in super slow motion thanks to having a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS memory stacked sensor which can record 960 frames per second. The resulting video is supposed to be 4 times slower than other phones.

A Predictive Capture feature buffers images before the shutter button has even been tapped, keeping an eye out for fast motions so that users don’t miss out on capturing rapidly moving subjects. Sony claims the smartphone can shoot superior images even in low-light courtesy bigger pixels and a 25mm wide G Lens.
