Sony Xperia XZs: New edition of the Xperia XZ with 960-FPS camera

Sony restores the Xperia XZ to the MWC 2017. In the version Xperia XZs, it receives the camera of the new flagship Xperia XZ Premium, but with the exception of the Xperia XZ components. The price is 649 euros.

960-FPS-time loupe a price class lower

If you want to buy the 960-FPS camera of the new Xperia XZ Premium in a smaller device for less money, this option has the new Xperia XZs. Here again, Sony is installing the new three-layer CMOS sensor with its proprietary DRAM cache, which was introduced only three weeks ago. The Xperia XZs can capture slow motion images at up to 960 frames per second in full-HD resolution. The sensor operates at 19.3 pixels and has a shutter speed of 1/120 second. This should prevent the rolling shutter effect when moving.

Equipment taken over from the Xperia XZ

The Xperia XZ’s other features are similar to the Xperia XZ introduced in the IFA half a year ago. The display is again 5.2 inches large and resolves with 1,920 × 1,080 pixels. New is the protection by Gorilla Glass 5. The 4K-HDR display of the premium version, there is a price class lower thus not.

As a system-on-a-chip, the Snapdragon 820 is still in use, even the upgrade to the slightly faster Snapdragon 821 saves itself Sony. In terms of memory, Sony is the smartphone but: now 4 Gigabyte LPDDR4 instead of 3 gigabytes are available. The internal flash memory is 32 gigabytes in size and can be expanded with a microSD card. The wired connection to the outside is via USB 3.1 Type C instead of Protocol 2.0.

The other specifications of the smartphone agree one with one of those of the Xperia XZ. Even the case is equal to the decimal place and weighs the same amount. The IP68 certification, which protects against dust and water, has been maintained.

Market launch in April for 649 euros

Sony wants to bring the Xperia XZs from the beginning of April in the colors black, white and ice blue to the non-committal price of 649 euros to the German market. The price recommendation thus falls 50 euros lower than the market launch of the Xperia XZ from. As an operating system, Android 7.1 nougat is preinstalled with slight Sony adjustments.
