Sony has announced that the unlocked XZ Premium smartphone will be available for pre-order on Amazon and Best Buy beginning June 12, with an on-sale date of June 22, with a cost of $800, and the company's futuristic Xperia Touch projector will cost $1,700.
The XZ Premium isbased on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip - the same chip also found in the Samsung Galaxy S8, the HTC U, and the upcoming Essential Phone. But the most notable feature of Sony's new flagship is the 19MP camera that utilizes Sony's Exmor RS imaging sensor for super-fast shitter speeds. Additionally the XZ Premium brings a feature called Motion Eye that captures video at a mind-boggling 960 frames per second for super slo-mo playback.
The 5.5-inch phone also features a 4K HDR display, 3,230mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.
The Xperia Touch is a special projector, which turns any flat surface into a touch screen. It 5-inch box runs on the Android Nougat-based OS and includes an array of sensors - GPS, ambient light, barometer, temperature, humidity, and human detection - as well as a 13MP camera and two-way stereo speaker. All these components work together to transform any flat surface into a fully interactive touch projection. If you're sitting at a table, the viewing area will be 23 inches, but when projecting onto a wall it can expand the image up to 80 inches.
The Xperia Touch will go on sale June 16 for $1,700.
