Sony XZ Premium: 960fps + 4K HDR Display!
What's up everybody this is Danny I got to look at a ton of cool phones at MWC but there was one in particular that really drew my attention and this is the Sony XV premium Sony actually released a bunch of phones including the XA 1 XA one ultra which is their mid-range and then their other flagship the XC is but I got my hands-on time with those two so I'll make a separate video notes but for today let's focus on the xB premium there were a couple reasons why I was so drawn to this phone and the first reason is that this is the world's first 5.5 inch 4k HDR display this thing has a crazy 807 pixels per inch if you
Remember the z5 premium actually had a 4k display but if you look at them both side-by-side you can see that the HDR makes for better colors on the panel and the XC premium is much brighter I'm pretty sure it's going to be the same setup as the z5 premium where the UI is probably in 1080p and then 4k content gets supported in Sony's own apps but this hasn't been confirmed yet the other feature that really drew me in is that this camera can shoot video verse up to a crazy 960 frames per second this phone is still in pre-production when I checked it out so I couldn't get them to
Show me on the actual premium itself but they demoed this feature on the XDS and I got to play around with it and it was nothing short of amazing if you look you can actually see the individual blades on the propeller even though this is recorded in 720p it was just incredible to see a mobile phone do this so how this works is that this is a brand-new Exmor RS sensor it's 19 megapixels f 2.0 and this is a stack sensor so the stack actually has memory built into it so that's how these 960 frames per second bursts happen you just hit it on the UI you'll see it only takes about a point
Two second stint of what's happening right there and then it translates it to the super-slow-mo I believe this is an industry-first the camera is also loaded with laser and face detection autofocus an infrared sensor that allows the sensor to adjust white balance on the fly some really cool stuff I personally am super excited to try out this new Exmor RS sensor of course I can shoot 4k up to 30 frames per second and the front-facing camera is not too shabby either it's a 13-megapixel f 2.0 22 millimeter wide angle lens it doesn't look like
This phone will be out until the summer but there's plenty to be excited about the design looks incredible to me in a stunning chrome color it's all covered in Gorilla Glass 5 of course it'll be a fingerprint magnet so I'm sure the brand is doing this right now but there's also a black color if you want to be a little more low-key both of them could be used as a mirror though so ladies no need to carry one if you buy this phone when it comes to specs this phone is loaded it has the newest octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4 gigabytes of RAM it's IP 68
Water-resistant has a micro SD card slot for easy expansion beyond the 64 gigs of internal storage it runs Android 7.1 nougat has a 3030 milliamp hour battery front-facing stereo speakers which is awesome and a USB type-c port with quick charge 3.0 and besides it being a little bit bulky in the design being a little bit last gen I think this phone could be the one to beat in 2017 so what do you guys think of the XD premium I think it's really going to be a toss-up here either going to love the design you're going to hate it I think that it's not the most futuristic design it definitely
Has huge forhead and a huge chin my hands-on time with this elf it felt super solid really well-constructed so I can't wait to get this one in for review make sure you smack that like button if you enjoyed this and check out my other coverage from MWC and also a lot more smartphone coverage it's just that time of year make sure you subscribe for more and I will see you guys in the next one
