At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Sony unveiled its flagship Xperia, the XZ Premium. The design is boxy and boring, but the specs are to die for: 5-second videos at 960 frames per second, a 5.5-inch, 4K (801 ppi) screen, nothing less… And the rest is nothing to sneeze at: Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, IP68 water resistance, 19-megapixel main camera and 13-megapixel secondary camera. No info on price or availability has yet been released.

Ars Technica, “Xperia XZ Premium hands-on: Sony powerhouse has a Snapdragon 835, 4K LCD.”

Newsshooter, “Sony’s new Xperia XZ and XZ Premium smartphones can shoot video at 960fps.”
