Back in February, Sony somewhat reluctantly unveiled its upcoming flagship phone, the Xperia XZ Premium. At the time, the phone is still very much under development, especially on the software side of things. Now, it seems like the company is finally ready to set the Xperia XZ Premium in to the wild.
Sony confirmed yesterday, as reported by Android Central, that its newest flagship phone will go on pre-order as early as June 12. The phone will be released a week after the pre-order period.
For anyone thinking of getting the Xperia XZ premium can do so from third-party resellers such as Amazon and Best Buy. Off-contract price for the Sony flagship is $800.
The selling point for the Xperia XZ Premium if its impressive 5.5-unch 4K display. The display is made with the same technology used on Sony Bravia televisions so users can expect nothing less from it.
Apart from this, the 19-megapixel rear camera sensor is also a thing of wonder. The sensor was setup in such a way that it can take 960 frames-per-second. This makes it best suited for ultra-slow-motion video capture.
These specs are complemented by the latest Snapdragon 835 SoC from Qualcomm. This is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash storage. Furthermore, users can expect at least a full day of use on the Xperia XZ Premium with its 3,230mAh lithium-ion battery.
The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the third in the long line of Snapdragon 835-powered smartphones to be released this year. There have been numerous leaks about its supposed performance over the Internet. So far, most of them bid good tidings as they show how good the phone performs in synthetic tests. Nevertheless, these results are still different from real world applications. The good thing is, the phone will get its much awaited released before the end of June.
