New Delhi: In a bid to outshine other premium smartphones, Sony India on Thursday launched Xperia XZ Premium -- the world`s first smartphone with 4K HDR display and super-fast download speeds with Gigabit-class LTE connectivity at Rs 59,990 in the country.

The 5.5-inch display uses Sony`s `BRAVIA TV` technology to give an immersive viewing experience and the display quality is enriched by Sony`s native technologies `TRILUMINOS Display` for mobile, X-Reality for mobile and Dynamic Contrast Enhancer.

The exterior of the device has a glass loop surface which when turned over reveals a reflective surface on the back. 

The device is water resistant, dust-proof and reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and the back.

Xperia XZ Premium is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC which supports high graphics and performance with enhanced battery efficiency. 

The device has a `Motion Eye` camera with Super Slow Motion and Predictive capture. Featuring a memory stacked Exmor RS sensor, it provides five times faster image scanning and data transfer.

This also enables a user record 960 frames per second, providing super-slow motion video playback that is four times slower than other smartphones.

The `Predictive Capture` automatically starts buffering images when it detects motion even before pressing the button. 

The new 19MP high-resolution sensor has 19 per cent larger pixels to capture more light and deliver sharp images in low-light and backlit conditions. 

The embedded High Resolution Audio playback allows a user to hear every nuance and detail. Sony`s native DSEE HX technology even up-scales streamed tracks or MP3s to near High-res quality.

Xperia XZ Premium`s battery is maximised with `Smart Stamina` which uses the Xperia learning engine to accurately estimate how long the current battery will last. It comes with a quick charger that charges phone to 60 per cent in 45 minutes.

It runs on Android Nougat out of the box. 

The device can be pre-booked at all Sony Centres and Amazon during a limited period offer from June 2-June 11. As part of this offer, customers will get SRS-XB20 bluetooth speaker worth Rs 8,990.
