    World’s first smartphones with Super slow motion video1

    • World’s first memory-stacked image sensor in a smartphone
    • World’s fastest image capture technology in a smartphone
    • World’s first smartphone with 960fps video capture

    The camera module of the Xperia XZs includes a 19MP (1.22um pixel) 1/2.3” sensor stacked with a DRAM chip. Inclusion of DRAM within the camera module increases image capture speed by 5 times and facilitates the slow motion video capture of 960 frames per second. The Xperia XZs, XZ Premium, XZ1 and XZ 1 Compact are the world’s first smartphones to feature a memory-stacked image sensor. Fast frame rate video capture for slow motion video capture at 960fps is not available from other smartphones and instead uses software interpolation.
