Sony shows off its stunning 960fps slow-mo camera in the Xperia XZ Premium

With the Xperia XZ Premium's release date approaching, Sony took to YouTube to release a video highlighting the amazing power of its so-called Motion Eye camera.

The video was shot entirely using the Xperia XZ Premium by journalists at Sony's press event in Lisbon. Directed by film-maker Chris Cairns, 120 smartphones captured the stunning scenes using Sony's new Motion Eye camera system. This camera carries with it astounding specs, including the ability to shoot slow motion video at 960fps. To put that in perspective, Samsung's flagship boasts support for only 240fps. I can't believe I can use the word only in that sentence.

[Deal Alert] Unlocked Sony Xperia XZs down to $620 at Amazon ($64 off)

It seems to be the night of back-to-back Sony phone deals. Just a few weeks ago we posted that the Xperia XZs (I will never understand Sony's naming scheme) was down to $658 over on Amazon. Now it's gotten down to $619.99, but just for the black model. The XZs is a mid-season refresh of last year's XZ, featuring an updated camera and a bit of extra RAM. Although the 1.22µm pixels in the new camera aren't the largest, it does have a high 19MP resolution and can shoot in 4K, as well as 960fps slow motion video.

[Update: Link to Sony's message] It looks like Sony might be prepping to push Nougat to their Android TVs soon

[Deal Alert] Xperia X 32GB (F5121) $250 at Amazon and B&H

I've seen that there are two general camps when it comes to phones these days: those who want something big, and those who don't. For the latter, Sony has become a bit of a savior by continuing to make decent phones in a small form-factor. If you're part of that camp and you've been waiting for a deal on a recent Sony phone, that time has arrived. B&H and Amazon have the Xperia X for $250. That'll get you a nice 5" display and decent specs for a reasonable price.

Sony's support for the open source community is commendable, and this is more great news for developers hoping to play with custom builds of Nougat on their Xperia devices.
