According to Sony, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the first smartphone ever to shoot in Super slow motion. Shooting at a rate of 960 frames per second, the result is a dramatic look at items in motion played back at a speed that is four times slower than other smartphones. To put things in perspective, the iPhone shoots slow motion in 240 fps. Sony recorded some examples of Super slow motion that you can view by clicking on the video at the top of the story.
Speaking about the camera, the rear-facing snapper weighs in at 19MP while the front-facing snapper is 13MP. Both carry an f/2.0 aperture, and the latter includes a wide angle 22mm lens. SteadyShot offers a 5-axis stabilization system to counter unsteady hands, and the phone’s 5.5-inch display features a 4K (2160 x 3840) resolution protected by Gorilla Glass 5. Samsung or no Samsung, Sony is the first to announce a device powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset.
While the phone does have a fingerprint scanner, the feature is not enabled on U.S. models. If it proves anything, it means that Sony wanted to continue offering handsets in the U.S. so badly, that it was willing to abide by whatever deal it made even if it prevents the scanner from being used in the states.
