Exmor RS™ for mobile – stunning shots in any light
The camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and colour noise reduction, we’ve created a camera that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise – even in challenging lighting conditions. You’re now also able to reproduce objects in more vivid colours and capture night images and faces in stunning clarity.
HDR for photos and video – natural colours in any light
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology that gives you clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, your Android™ smartphone captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. And thanks to HDR for video, you can film in high contrast situations. You get great footage, even if your subject stands in front of a window or the setting sun.
Vivid colours and stunning clarity – watch the 8 MP camera in action.
Always snap ready
From sleep to snap in under a second – never miss a moment thanks to the fast-capture camera and the dedicated camera key that’s always ready to shoot, even from a locked screen.

Significantly improve the battery life of your camera phone with Battery STAMINA mode
Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you’re not actively using them. All those apps that you have on your phone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA mode saves you wasted battery drain by recognising when your display is off and turning off functions you don’t need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you wake up your camera phone everything is up and running again.
Get only the important notices
With Battery STAMINA mode, Wi-Fi and data traffic are disabled during standby, but you still receive incoming calls, texts, and alarms. And since everyone has different needs, you can easily customise which apps you want to receive push notifications from even in standby mode. Facebook notifications on or off? It’s up to you.
