  • 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 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jay1985 from First Sony phone.... I'm sold on it!!! I've had the Sony experia xz premium just over 2 month now and it's the first Sony fone I've had. To say in pleased would be an understatement, every feature on the fone is easy to use its stylish modern different look to the likes of Samsung or Apple to me is more appealing. The screen is plenty big enough for watching movies or playing games. The battery is good too, I use my fone alot and at the start of my day at 5.20am to late at nite I still have 40% battery. I wanted the last experia z5premium 2 year ago but had the S5 galaxy instead though I'm very happy I stood to a change. Forget samsung and apple sony have created a all round brilliant fabulous every day easy to use fone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shakz 786 from Great Phone Sony !! I brought this at launch and was surprised its actually better specification then the S8 4k and slow motion recordings are amazing along with the specification its a bit bigger then the S8 but the specification is much better a very snappy finger print scanner, 19 mp back, 13mp front, 4k, usb - c, a decent battery, snapdragon 835, 64gb & water proof IP 65/68. my friend has the S8 I think Sony have surprised everyone with this one. They finally got it right! A great phone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by I like cows from Sony got it right A great phone. Super fast and glitch free. Strong wifi and 4G connection. I've been disappointed with Sony since the Z5 but they've got this one spot on. Sound quality is perfect as are screen colours. Prefer this to the S8 and IPhone 7. On par with a Google Pixel I'd say. It's huge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Calamitus from Fantastic screen, lightning fast, stunning looks Amazingly sharp, vivid screen. Super fast responses. Not too much bloatware. Great detailed camera. Big phone, but well balanced, so easy to use one-handed for average male hands. Stunning looks, both in terms of the chrome finish, and the sharper corners.
