The Xperia XZ Premium retains the premium and simplistic design approach that the Japanese tech giant is known for. Being only one of the few smartphones which sport a whopping 4K display, the XZ Premium once again raises the bar in visual prowess.

The 5.5-inch display in the XZ Premium is backed by HDR, with a 40% increase in brightness over the Xperia Z5. Sony didn’t hold back on internals too, as this powerhouse sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.

One unique thing about the XZ Premium is its Motion Eye Camera, which the company claims can capture 960fps videos in slow motion. That is 4 times more than what current phones can churn out.

The Sony Xperia XZs on the other hand, is basically an Xperia XZ with a Motion Eye Camera. It’s sports a 5.2-inch Full HD display, retains water proofing, and is still powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.

The Xperia XZ Premium is scheduled to be available sometime in late spring, while the XZs will be making its way to stores in April.
