Sony’s Xperia XZ certainly caught everyone’s attention when it was announced at Mobile World Congress 2017. Not only is it a looker, it’s also one of the few phones that can capture super slow motion video in 960fps. As such, it was given the Best New Smartphone award at the Glomo Awards.
Sony Mobile’s innovation flagship, Xperia XZ Premium, was awarded the “Best New Smartphone or Connected Mobile Device at MWC” during the annual Global Mobile Awards (Glomo Awards).
Garnering over 30 accolades during the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain, this flagship device also received media recognition such as “Best Innovation” from the UK Blog Awards, “Reader’s Choice” and “Best Smartphone” from Radar, and “Coolest of MWC” from Wired.
Sony has dedicated extensive consumer research to present their flagship phone that has advancements in display, camera and design.

Stunning selfies can be taken with Xperia XZ Premium’s 13 mega-pixel front camera. The rear camera at 19 mega-pixels has marked improvements to allow users to take better low-light photography.
The XZ Premium also features Sony’s new Motion Eye™ camera system that has advanced features and excellence in picture quality.
