  • Game-changing display

    Sony has introduced the same technology used on its BRAVIA TVs to a smartphone screen. Introducing the first mobile 4K HDR display, measuring 5.5-inches.

  • Motion Eye™ camera

    With the 19MP camera, you can shoot super-slow motion video at an incredible 960fps. And Sony’s predictive capture means you can experience more on screen than the human eye can see, promising top-drawer image quality every time.

  • Life-protected

    Certified as IP68, the Xperia XZ Premium is fully water and dust-resistant.

  • High quality performance

    The XZ Premium’s speed and power is down to the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 processor. There’s even a secondary processor specifically for the camera, making the super-slow motion capture possible.

Design and display

A world-first

The 4K HDR screen on the Xperia XZ Premium is a massive jump for mobile. Using the same technology that’s in Sony’s BRAVIA TVs, the picture quality is incredible. And, through a partnership with Amazon Prime Video, you’re able to stream 4K content straight to the mobile. 

Build quality

Available in two colours, the XZ Premium looks stunning – featuring rounded edges, diamond-cut corners, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection all-round. If that’s not enough, it’s also safe in 1.5m of fresh water, with IP68 certification – the highest protection available to mobile. 


Time to slow down

The 19MP sensor has a lot going on. Not only does Sony’s predictive capture technology let you focus on things before you even press the shutter button, but you can also shoot video at 960 frames per second. This is super slow-mo, letting you see things even the human eye can’t. 

Brighter photos

With larger pixels, you’ll see bolder and brighter colours in all your photos. The big pixels let more light into the lens, and with Sony’s smart exposure control, light levels are automatically adjusted to make sure evening shots look great too. 

Under the hood

More power

On the inside of the XZ Premium, there’s the new Snapdragon 835 processor, alongside 4GB RAM. This combo will make sure the 4K HDR display, and all your favourite apps, run smoothly. And the camera has its own processor too, to make the impressively quick frame rate possible. 

Battery to last all day long

With a 3,230mAh cell capacity, the Xperia XZ Premium guarantees battery durability. But if you do find yourself in a tough spot, smart STAMINA mode will kick in. It’s able to predict how long your battery will last - based on average usage - warn you early if you’re using excess charge, and limit power-hungry apps to keep you going until you can plug in.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 205.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7 months on Bought this phone June last year and thought it would be useful to some to review it after living with it for a while. It is still performing brilliantly although I think the speakers might not be as loud as they once were, still good though. Happened on my z3 too. Doesn't Glitch at all and has always worked faultlessly. Camers is brilliant but needs a little time to set it up. I'm a carpenter so it's taken ample abuse. The dark chrome on the sides is beginning to flake slightly on the edges and dust in between the case and the phone scratches the edges quite easily. However, the screen and back remain totally unmarked. Some of the features, the slow mo and the 3d thing are astonishing and leave many people speechless. OK, it's big but I don't have babies hands so it's really not a problem. It's a brilliant phone/computer and like many other android devices is totally customisable. Hope this helps. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great all round premium smart phone I've had mine for over 6 months now with no issues what so ever. Easily the best photo I've owned. My previous z3plus was junk so I was sceptical going for another sony. But I'm glad I took a gamble and got the xz premium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Technology at its best What can i say the xperia premium is by far the best phone out to date it tramples over its predecessors the 4k hdr screen is as good as my 65inch sony bravia 4k hdr tv mind blowing colours sharp clear smooth picture breathtaking detail the processor in this badboy makes everything run rapidly and so so so smooooth! Working with Android 8.0 makes the interface very user friendly navigation is simplified and straightforward. (set colour settings to super vivid gamut to get the most out of the HDR feature) Running games and the Ps4 remote play is also super smooth on this phone. The camera is nothing short of outstanding it captures such fine detail even in low lighting. Headphones could be better a bit cheap looking for a phone as quality as the premium version. Last thing is how amazed i am at how apps seamlessly work with this phone never had a problem with app compatibility no crashing or suddenly stop working everything just seems to work perfectly! i cant express how much this phone is at the top of its game 10/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near perfect Superb quality and well supported by Sony. Low light video capture could be improved and super slow motion only works in well lit environments.
