  • 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 4.5 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Done Sonu I have been using the Premium since launch and I am super impressed with it. it's fast, slick to use and the fingerprint scanner on the side is so handy! The camera has a few cool tricks too like the super slow mo! Although it takes a few attempts to get used to how to use the slow mo it honestly it honestly makes everything wow! My favourite feature however has to be Predictive Capture- kind like live photo on iPhone but better. I have been able to capture amazing moments with this and even male some of them into cool gifs :) The screen is crazy good, they have majorly improved the speakers from the XZ/Z5 and just looks awesome. I for one dont care about the bezels especially when it means the phone isnt as fragile and has things like stereo front speakers and 4 antennas build in for the fastest download speed in a phone. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for an outstanding camera, great battery life and durability.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good flagship Not sure where to start. The volume is too quiet - via the speakers, Bluetooth and headphones, it's about 33% of the volume my HTC M9 gave me. Secondly, the camera isn't great. It's good...but not great. The slomo is only two seconds and in low light it is just awful. The messaging app is poor too - sending messages to groups is not an option and sending a message to several recipients just sends it into meltdown. Compared to my M9, it's a downright disappointment. Plus points? It charges quickly...but then it also loses charge can use it as a mirror if you have the chrome version. The biggest plus is that they've kept the 3.5mm audio jack. It's just a shame the volume is terrible. That's about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow mobile phone Everything becomes Wow with the Xperia Xz premium. This innovative flagship device features the world's first memory-embedded camera with motion eye and super slow motion for capturing life's hidden magic better than the human eye. It's also the world's first smartphone with 4k her display, using Sony bravia TV technology for content so clear and lifelike, it takes your breath away. The cutting edge Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor delivers stunning graphics, industry leading performance and enhanced battery efficiency, while Xperia actions and smart stamina means the more you use it, the smarter it gets.
