The first handset with 4K display resolution - the Xperia Z5 Premium, is now getting a successor, the XZ Premium. It comes not only with 4K resolution for the 5.5" LCD panel, but is also stuffed to the gills with other niceties like a top-shelf Snapdragon 835 chipset, HDR certification for the screen, and 64 GB of storage, as well as a new 19 MP sensor that can do amazing slow-motion tricks.
The phone sounds awesome on paper, and will probably have the price to match, as the next best thing this Sony season - the XZs - will start at $699, so expect the XZ Premium to cost you even more. The only ho-hum aspect of the premium phone is the tried and true Sony design. It not only isn't a radical departure from we've seen in the Z-series for years now, but also has borrowed the huge top and bottom bezels from them, in a year where the fight will seemingly be all about the screen-to-body ratio. Oh, well, having the best phone for VR adventures should mitigate the unsightly bezels to a great extent. Check out all the official images of the XZ Premium below, and judge for yourself.
