Awarded as the Best New Smartphone or Connected Device during the Mobile World Congress 2017, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium highlights its main selling points on its cameras. Its 19-megapixel Motion Eye camera has advanced shooting features including Super Slow Mo which captures videos at 960 frames per second, giving it a more dramatic effect and emphasis on details. Another one is Predictive Capture, a feature which allows the Xperia XZ Premium to automatically start buffering images up to four shots when motion is detected, even before the user taps the camera button. Sony has also equipped the Xperia XZ with 19% larger pixels to capture clear photos even in low-lit areas.

In terms of its front shooters, the Xperia XZ has a 13-megapixel secondary snapper with 1/3.06-inch Exmor RS.
