Sony Xperia XZ Premium Concept Brings a Dual Camera in the Mix, 4K Display Again

Sony is still in the pole position of the 4K display smartphone battle, but the Xperia Z5 Premium felt more like an experiment, than a real product. Now we may never be seeing an Xperia XZ Premium, but that doesn’t stop designer Babak Soren from envisioning one. And it’s a doozy!

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has a dual back camera, a front curved screen and apparently a 4K resolution again. The pattern below and above the screen is really interesting, sort of like denim meets pixelart, but I’m not sure you can pull that off in real life. A 5.5 inch 4K display is in the mix, while the specs should be on par with the Xperia XZ, plus a little bit of extra.

Maybe go from 3 GB of RAM to 4 GB, or even 6 GB, upgrade from Snapdragon 820 to S821, give this model the same 13 MP camera, since it’s pretty solid and include a crazy partnership. Since Huawei paired up with Leica and Motorola with Hasselbland, why not see a Sony-Nikon or Canon partnership? Imagine the quality of the resulting dual camera…

A 3500 mAh battery and metal body (Alkaleido again probably) are mentioned by the designer.

    Nice but sony should mind also aesthetics of their phones by reducing the bezels up and down the phone. Its too huge and odd actually.

    Awesome design with slimmed down bezels. Will be nice to see this in real life.. Go Sony!

  • Beautiful. However no chance for 4K (which is good, as it’s not needed on less than 6″ devices – FullHD is enough for Z Ultra). Possible is 4K scaled to FullHD like on Z5 Premium.
    And Sony has it’s own camera modules (one of the best, if not the best used in smartphones), which are sometimes used by Nikon, so why if they cannot give them anything?

    Well, I do agree with the minimized top and bottom bezel but I supposed its only for concept purpose. Sony does not have the enthusiasm of considering blogs, recommendations and comments. They ignore it actually, while all other manufacturers except Apple, worked hard for phone bezel and size minimization. What Sony did not know was that they failed in the market just because of these issues. You can put or Institute all the latest technology, but if the phone looks so bulky, I am sure it will be ignored. See how Samsung or even the amareur Huawei success in the market? Its mainly due to the look and form factor as they consider blogs, recommendations and comments by others.

    Eu adoraria se a SONY fizesse um Smartphone assim, is ser um tapa na cara das concorrentes….
