Sony’s smartphone division has brought the best smartphone they could with the Xperia XZ Premium. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a flagship smartphone that comes with many an industry first. It is the only smartphone available in the market with a 4K display that is complemented by HDR (High Dynamic Range). You get not only the highest resolution display found on a smartphone but also vivid colours. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is also the first smartphone with super slow motion video recording.

This one runs with the help of Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4GB of RAM. The Sony Xperia XZs is available in either 32GB or 64GB memory variants.
