A fresh image of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium handset with Chrome mirror-finish carrying back has surfaced online.

The word on the web is that Sony will house the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset inside it. That’s why it will get to see the daylight only on May 7 as shown in the leaked image.

Rumours hint that the Xperia XZ Premium will arrive with a 4K HDR display, possibly the first phone to feature it. Last year, the same handset was in rumours with Xperia X Premium name. The Xperia XZ Premium’s 20-megapixel camera with 1.22-micron pixels at the back can shoot slow-motion video at 960fps. That is made possible with the new image sensors that come with embedded memory.

Sony also integrates the Motion Eye predictive focus which automatically detects human eyes and focuses on them. It is quite similar to the Eye Autofocus feature used in Sony digital cameras. The new anti-distortion feature will let you capture and withhold as more details for a crisper image. Finally, the super low-light mode ensures better quality images even under challenging situations.
