Sony Xperia XZs and Xperia XZ Premium with "Motion Eye" camera feature may be released this year

Apparently, Motion Eye will let your Xperia phone snap 4 photos in the second before you hit the shutter button, once it automatically detects movement. While this may be new for Sony handsets, it doesn't seem to be something that hasn't been done yet. The feature appears to resemble Apple's Live Photos, which captures motion both before, and after you're snapping a picture, thus creating moving images. As you may know, Live Photos debuted on the iPhone 6s series back in 2015. Another relatively similar feature is Samsung's Motion Photo that's available on the Galaxy S7 family.
Sony's Motion Eye may be included on two upcoming high-end phones allegedly called Xperia XZs and Xperia XZ Premium. The XZ Premium could pack a 4K display and a Snapdragon 835 processor, succeeding the Xperia Z5 Premium from late 2015 (pictured above).
Sony will host a media event at MWC 2017 next week, on February 27. The company should announce multiple new smartphones then, though the Xperia XZs and XZ Premium might be unveiled at a later date, as they're not expected to hit shelves before June. It remains to be seen if Sony will mention the Motion Eye feature at MWC.

Will this be Sony's year to release a phone that is actually worth the price?

Nothing is worth from this dying company. Remember when it announced the so-called Z5 with 4k display? Because it has never achieved anything good, that time it tried to be first to release a 4k phone hoping people to honor its movement. The funniest thing it turned out to be a huge and embarrassing failure because people aren't fool enough to believe whatever that lying company said. That's the opposite of being the real innovative company like Samsung or LG stands for. Like I said before and maybe I'll have to repeat it a couple of time more in the future that the failing Sony is on its way to be another Sharp. Their die-hard fanboys all saw this coming but refused to speak out.

He's one of those members who hates everything Japanese because of political/racial reasons. I've seen him post here for years and despite having his posts repeatedly deleted, he never changes. Better just avoid such posts and don't address the hate. Kinda hypocritical on my part but you guys get what I mean.

Right, I get it. Sony fanboys can only accept positive comments about their brand. Yet get frustrated on someone who dare to speak the truth. Pointing out which part of my statement above is unacceptable or wrong or else you're just in denial.

Well is that how you see it? Hmmm.. According to my knowledge, Z5p was not a flop and some people actually loved that phone, especially the reflecting surface.. The 4k display was and will always be the first in smartphone and people will forever love Sony.. I know Sony does price their products very high, but that doesn't give you the write to post political comments and bash a company..

I'm using now Sony Xperia XZ, best smartphone I have ever used, the problem of Sony is that people always looking for stupid aspects. like 6 GB RAM, SD 835 while something like SD 820 is more than enough, 256 GB storage while most of us managing with 32 GB. I like Sony, and Xperia smartphones are the best in the market, but Sony should do more marketing to get people attention, like 4K screen and other stuff that we would not be using more than one or two times. usually smartphone come's with more than 100 option but in the end they say if you want to save battery turn off them. be cool man, LG & Samsung is NOT better than Sony

Please respect Sharp. Sharp has failed because of their stupid point of view, not because they had terrible products, and anway Sharp was not totally sold off! Actually Sharp phones where really great, everybody who has used one praised it to be a very good, device. About Sony, they are on the road of change I think. I use a Z5, and for example the battery life is really good, so does the video recording quality, or the music.

Innovative. Like the Samsung gaming console they have thats so cool? Oh wait, that was the LG gaming console thats in millions of homes around the country. Sony couldn't make an innovative piece such as a gaming console. You are so smart hallyu! So much hate for a little person. Learn to love a little. Someone really abused you as a kid. sorry. I hope you can move on and leave in peace. If not, go die in a car crash.

AFAIK, utilizing DRAM will allow for 960fps slow-motion in 1080p, which is a game changer. It's good to see that Sony is using the latest technology in their own smartphones, as opposed to favoring the likes of others for profit.

Yes, exactly what I've been hoping for. Instead of selling their best tech to others, differentiate their own smartphones more so that they can overall profit from both the sensors and the other components in their phones too.

Didn't HTC come up with that first? Why is there no mention of it?

What about the lytro cameras? Or they don't count since you'd click on a specific place to bring it to focus in the photo & the other areas would appear to blur
