Lat­est mod­els in X se­ries

The Sun (Malaysia) - - LIFESTYLE -

SONY Mo­bile Com­mu­ni­ca­tions re­cently an­nounced two ad­di­tions to its new X se­ries smart­phones – the flag­ship Xpe­ria XZ and pre­mium Xpe­ria X Com­pact – that fea­ture new and im­proved cam­era tech­nol­ogy.

Sony Mo­bile coun­try di­rec­tor for Malaysia An­drew Cheong said: “The Xpe­ria XZ and Xpe­ria X Com­pact al­low you to cap­ture ev­ery mo­ment as you see it – with blur-free im­ages day or night, and with true-to-life colours – thanks to the new tripleim­age-sens­ing tech­nol­ogy.”

This tech­nol­ogy max­imises on Sony’s ac­claimed Ex­mor RS im­age sen­sor by adding two as­sist­ing sen­sors to this mo­bile im­age sen­sor that al­ready of­fers a blend of high qual­ity im­age and aut­o­fo­cus (AF) speed com­bined with Pre­dic­tive Hy­brid AF to in­tel­li­gently pre­dict and also track sub­jects in mo­tion for blur-free im­ages.

The new sen­sors are the Laser AF sen­sor that pro­vides the dis­tance-sens­ing tech­nol­ogy which cap­tures per­fect pho­tos in chal­leng­ing low-light con­di­tions, and the RGBC-IR sen­sor with coloursens­ing tech­nol­ogy that ac­cu­rately ad­justs the white bal­ance based on the light source in the en­vi­ron­ment to give su­perb true-to-life colours.

The 23MP main cam­era is su­per­fast in startup to give clear shots in 0.6 sec­onds, with also ad­vanced fea­tures for those who want to en­hance their shoot­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Both the Xpe­ria mod­els bring sig­nif­i­cant ad­vance­ments in im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion, with In­tel­li­gent Ac­tive Mode to en­able su­perb video record­ing. The five-axis sta­bil­i­sa­tion al­lows for cap­tur­ing smoother videos even when walk­ing or run­ning. The XZ comes with a 13MP front cam­era for selfie and welfie as well as high qual­ity record­ing in 4K. It is also wa­ter- and dust-re­sis­tant. The XZ’s stun­ning 5.2in glass dis­play and metal back give it a pre­mium feel while the Xpe­ria X Com­pact’s 4.6in screen and loop sur­face de­sign make it ideal to op­er­ate with just one hand. The fin­ger­print sen­sor power but­ton on both devices is in­tu­itively lo­cated on the side for ease of use to un­lock in a sin­gle move­ment. They also fea­ture new Bat­tery Care, com­ple­mented by Qnovo adap­tive charg­ing, and USB Type C charger for fast charg­ing. The Xpe­ria XZ comes in with a dual SIM vari­ant (hy­brid SIM slot) while the X Com­pact is avail­able in sin­gle SIM vari­ant. The Xpe­ria XZ re­tails at RM2,699 and is avail­able in for­est blue, min­eral black and plat­inum colours; while the Xpe­ria X Com­pact re­tails at RM1,999 and comes in a high-gloss fin­ish in mist blue to­gether with uni­verse black and stylish white colours. Both devices are now on sale at all Sony Mo­bile Stores, Sony Cen­tres and autho­rised deal­ers na­tion­wide.
