Camera of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium
Like every year, Sony in their devices uses a new sensor manufactured by them. This time will have a sensor capable of recording to super slow motion, which is at 960fps. We have a new camera interface including this button to record in slow motion.
Sony has a strange obsession with the high resolutions in its cameras, and is that year after year we see how they oscillate by the line of the 20 megapixels. In this case, as it could not be otherwise, they mount a 19-megapixel sensor.
They have named this sensor as Motion Eye. This includes an integrated memory that allows you to make a very precise prediction of how the photograph will be shot before being shot, so the results should improve a lot. It is capable of recording at 4K, and is the first sensor in a smartphone capable of recording video at 960 FPS.
To give you an idea, the slow motion you are accustomed to is usually 240 FPS, only some professional cameras used in television are able to approach the 1000FPS. We are happy to have this technology included in this device, but we will have to test it thoroughly to know if it really us 960 real FPS and if the results are in line with what Sony tells us.
As it could not be otherwise, stabilization is also a key point of this Xperia XZ Premium. The terminal has a SteadyShot with 5 axes to improve this aspect, as well as an anti-distortion shooting mode so your pictures do not move.
For the front camera they have included a 13 megapixel sensor with wide angle and aperture f/2.0, which has an excellent pint. Overall, we were amazed by the photographic section of this Sony Xperia XZ Premium, waiting to be able to thoroughly test it.
We still do not have an exact date for this device, but Sony confirms that it will be released in the spring of this year. If we take a look at the features of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, we think it will not be a device anything cheap, as we still do not have any official confirmation on this terminal.
