It is interesting that the development of the phone tried to address what consumers deemed most important in a smartphone camera, from a survey that Sony conducted earlier in the year. The results appeared to show that consumers mostly cared about being able to take pictures in low-light conditions, the camera lens quality and the image processor.
The Xperia XZ rear camera utilises a six-component G Lens configuration, a F2.0 aperture and the 1/2.3-inch 23MP IMX300 Exmor RS sensor. The front camera includes a 13MP 1/3-inch sensor, which is 2.6x larger than the sensor used in the Xperia Z5. The slides give further details on the triple-image sensing technology including how the laser autofocus and RGBC-IR (RGB colour ─ infrared) sensors work. It also shows details on the 5-axis electronic steadyshot, where it has added X/Y displacement through an additional processor.
Sony has also included some slides on the display, showing that the 2016 models have a sRBG ratio of 1.4, versus 1.3x in the 2015 Xperia models. It says that the displays used hold few disadvantages when compared to OLED displays. Lastly, a slide on audio shows how the audio feature-set has increased from the Xperia Z1 to the Xperia XZ.
