The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the world’s first smartphone to feature a high-resolution 4K HDR display and 960fps super slow-mo. When it was launched in Malaysia, it had a hefty price tag of RM3,399. If you’re still interested in this device, Sony Mobile Malaysia has just announced a price cut of RM700.

Sony Mobile has finally launched the Xperia XZ Premium in Malaysia. This shiny looking flagship is the world’s first smartphone with a 4K HDR display and it’s also the world’s first to feature a 960fps slow-mo camera using a memory stacked camera sensor.
In conjunction with the on-going Rio 2016 Olympic Games, TM is having a HyppTV 4K Experience zone at Sunway Pyramid. As Malaysia’s official IPTV broadcaster of the games, TM wants to offer a unique viewing experience where the general public can watch the games in 4K quality between 9 to 23 August.
Anticipation is running high for the latest iteration of the Xperia line-up; mainly due to the 4K screen on the Xperia Z5 Premium Dual, and the same 23-megapixel sensor found on all three that gave the number 1 smartphone camera spot to Sony (judged by DxOMark). But will this trio be enough to revitalise the ailing Japanese mobile division of this multinational conglomerate?

UPDATE: Sony Malaysia will be launching the Xperia Z5 Compact Dual, Xperia Z5 Dual and Xperia Z5 Premium Dual.
Given their recent troubles, this will be a make or break device(s) for Japanese company; with the Z5 line has the potential of being their saving grace. The three devices are slated to make an official appearance in Malaysia on the 29th October during this special invite-only event (you can sign up here). If you’re lucky enough to score yourself these exclusive invites, you’ll be in store for some lucky draws, giveaways and door gifts.

In our most recent camera shootout, we tested the best Sony had to offer, which at the time was the Xperia M5, that placed 7th out of 10, overall. Worrying for Sony, who had relative success in supplying cameras to other flagships (iPhones, Samsungs and etc); success that has not streamed down to their own phone cameras, at least when field tested. A new change comes in the form of the latest Sony Xperia Z5 line, that’s been tested by the guys at DxOMark, showing a vast improvement.
IFA brought some great devices, but at the same time Sony was busy as well releasing their latest smart phones and the Xperia Z5 Premium was one of them. What blew most people away was the fact that Sony decided to pack a 4K display on the 5.5-inch device – a first in the smartphone industry. But it certainly isn’t cheap because native 4K content isn’t easy to find. Sony’s latest statement answers some questions but we’ll have to see how well it attempts to levitate this problem.
The display is the most looked at component on a smart phone, and Sony’s latest and greatest has broken all conventions with the new Xperia Z5 Premium. It packs a 4K display at the front which is basically 3840×2160 pixels crammed into a 5.5″ screen, giving an insane pixel density of 806 pixels per inch. If you can’t imagine how big a deal this is, it is like squeezing 4x Full HD displays into a single smart phone.
This a huge leap not only for Sony but also for the smart phone industry where most players are still reluctant to jump onto the Quad HD bandwagon due to power and cost practicality.
The new models will be going by X8300C, X8500C, X9300C and X9000C being the ultra thin model and the X9400 being the huge 75 inch premium model. All of the above will be run by the same 4K Processor X1 chip that allows the TV to scale up 1080p content to 4K quality without sacrificing any clarity or detail. The screens will feature a 3840 x 2160 4K resolution as well as the TRILUMINOUS tech to accurately reproduce brilliant colours as well as the X-tended Dynamic Range contrast enhancement to provide deeper blacks.
Got a Quad HD smart phone but want to get higher quality content? Not to worry as YouTube has upped its maximum supported video quality to 1440p resolution allowing you to watch sharper videos on your mobile device provided you have the screen resolution to support it. We’ve updated our YouTube app and tried it with the Oppo Find 7 as you can see in the picture above, and it works great. If you have mobile device with a Full HD 1080p display, the highest resolution videos you can watch on YouTube will be 1080p.
Other Quad HD devices include the LG G3, Samsung Galaxy Tab S and the Galaxy NotePro 12.2. At 1440p resolution, beautifully produced videos are wonderful to look at but also note that 1440p videos will use up more data as well, which is something you have to be mindful of when watching high-res videos using mobile data quota. We strongly advise using WiFi for this visual indulgence.
At time of writing, the latest YouTube app (18.104.22.168) isn’t available for mobile users in Malaysia just yet but it is likely to be rolled out in stages so you’ll have it in your device soon. If you can’t wait, you can try downloading the latest YouTube APK file manually which is what we did on the Oppo Find 7.
