Sony Xperia XZ (with 5 axis image stabilization!)

Sony has unveiled its flagship grade X series crusader, the Xperia XZ. This phone packs a whole lot of power under the hood but what's unique is that the rear camera supports a new technology. It's sensor is capable of 5-axis optical image stabilization.

Resolution wise, it's the same 23 mp sensor, but with a newer image processing algorithm and hybrid AF , says Sony. 

Other noteworthy specs include:
  • A Snapdragon 820 processor ( possibly Kyro)
  • 3 GB of DDR4 RAM
  • 32 GB of on-board storage. Not sure if it's expandable.

The front camera is an awesome new 13 mp wide angled shooter. It can crank it's ISO range all the way up to 6400. This should make for some bright and beautiful low light shots. We're yet to witness it hands on. Though the specs may not be the bleeding edge of flagship standards of 2016, they're still seemingly powerful and should make for a smooth and comfortable experience. I will comment more on it in my review, so stay tuned to my site.

To me, the 5 axis stabilization seems to be exactly what Xiaomi did with the mi 5 (4 axis stabilization), a gimmick! Though the 4 axis stabilization on the Xiaomi flagship was indeed very good, it wasn't extraordinarily better than 3 or 2 axis ones. But maybe Sony is onto something here, let's find out more on the coming days.
