Sony Mobile has given some more detail on the camera technology behind the Xperia XZ Premium. We all know by now that Sony has included a new 19MP image sensor capable of 960 frames per second slow motion video. This has been covered widely by the tech media, including the fact that the sensor has 19% bigger pixels compared to the sensor found on the Xperia XZ.
However, this isn’t the only camera change found in the Xperia XZ Premium’s camera. Sony has also re-designed the G Lens (25mm wide angle, F2.0) to improve the resolution in the corner of images. Sony says that the resigned lens has 25% better resolution compared to the Xperia XZ.
Sony has also enhanced the laser autofocus so that it works not only in low light conditions, but also in bright light conditions. Sony has confirmed that the autofocus speed is up to 50% faster in the Xperia XZ Premium versus the Xperia XZ. It seems that Sony has tweaked its algorithms to ensure images have less ‘white out’ when taking images at night. Overall, it’s great to see how Sony is trying to improve the camera outside of just slapping a new sensor into the phone.
