Sony bets big on the smartphone’s optics which includes a 19-megapixel camera on the back and a 13-megapixel camera on the front. Other features of the cameras include video recording in 960 frames per second, providing Super slow motion video, Plus Predictive Capture, Steadyshot and more.
The exterior has a glass loop surface and a mirrored effect on the back with a fingerprint sensor power button. Xperia XZ Premium is water resistant, dust-proof and is reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back of the handset.
