The latest Sony Xperia XZ Premium flagship has officially gone on sale today and will be available from Carphone Warehouse and EE.
The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the latest flagship handset from the Japanese electronics manufacturer, bringing forth plenty of hardware which no other handset currently has. It features the first 5.5-inch 4K HDR smartphone screen, which has a mind boggling pixel density of over 800 PPI. HDR allows the handset to display more than 1 billion colours, increasing the dynamic range of multimedia significantly. It also includes the latest Qualcomm 835 processor and 4GB RAM, plus a 3,230mAh battery.
The rear camera is 19 megapixels and uses Sony’s Motion Eye technology for super slow motion video. There’s also Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and an LED flash, the former of which is a first for the flagship. The lack of OIS has always been a complaint of the Xperia flagships, so this is a welcome addition which should really help. Accompanying this is a much higher resolution 13 megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture.
EE is on offer for £52.99 per month with 25GB of data, unlimited calls and text, with £9.99 upfront.
