While the flagship segment is already dominated by the Galaxies, Apples, and Pixels, Sony is making another attempt to impress the potential buyers. The Xperia XZs is on the mission.
The Xperia XZs succeeds the Xperia XZ from last year. It builds on what its predecessor had on offer like five-axis image stabilization and triple imaging sensor tech. Sony has added Motion Eye camera to the mix. It carries forward the same, familiar design. It is also IP68 dust resistant and waterproof.
The hardware on Xperia XZs is dated especially given its price. That is not to say it is not powerful enough, though. The Sony Xperia XZs gets Snapdragon 820 processor mated to 4GB RAM. Its 5.2-inch display has FullHD resolution and it has a 2,900 mAh battery. The Indian variant features dual SIM slot with 4G VoLTE.
Its camera is probably the only interesting part of Xperia XZs. The 19MP camera has 1/2.3 inch sensor, which translates to bigger individual pixel size. The camera is accompanied by IR sensor and RGB sensor, which should result in better photos as per Sony. The camera on Sony Xperia XZs can shoot super slow motion movies at freaking 960 frames per second. It also features predictive capture feature which basically captures the image even before you have clicked the shutter button.
The Sony Xperia XZs is up for pre-order in India and if you book one till 10th April, you will also get Sony’s Bluetooth speakers worth Rs.4,990. It will be sold for Rs.49,990 in India.
