Dubai, 11th April 2017: Sony Mobile Communications MEA showcased its latest award-winning smartphone, Xperia XZ Premium, for more than 180 select media and influencers from the Middle East and Africa region at its exclusive #Xperia960 event in Dubai. The largest event of its kind, #Xperia960 brought to life the world’s 1st Super slow motion video capture via a smartphone at 960 fps (frames per second). This is four times slower than can be shot on any other smartphone. Super slow motion captures details that the human eye can’t see.
#Xperia960 event and its activities were streamed live from The Annex, Burj Khalifa Dubai to viewers across MEA. Sony Mobile set up four Super slow motion activity sets at the event including ‘The Fall of Faith’, ‘The Confetti Wind Tunnel’, ‘The Colour Bounce Station’ and ‘The Great Balloon Drop’. Guests entered these activity sets to immerse themselves in the action, and videos were shot with Xperia XZ Premium in Super slow motion and broadcast live.
In his opening remarks at #Xperia960, Hideyuki Furumi, Executive Vice President, Global Sales & Marketing, Sony Mobile Communications said: “At Sony Mobile, we are committed to create increasingly personalized and intelligent products and services that connect you to each other and become essential and beloved parts of your lives. We are committed to this vision, and continue to push the boundaries of communication through cutting-edge technologies. Our new smartphone is a truly high-spec, high-tech device that empowers consumers to live an inspired mobile life. I'm happy to announce that Xperia XZ Premium will be available in the Middle East at the end of May.”
Xperia XZ Premium features Sony’s new Motion Eye™ camera system that offers the world’s first 960 fps super slow motion video capture and playback, four times slower than any other smartphone. Its camera is so advanced that it captures motion that the human eye can’t see, a beautiful 4K HDR display, super-fast download speeds, a stunning loop design and even more intelligent features.
The Xperia XZ Premium has won over 30 accolades and awards including “Best New Smartphone or Connected Mobile Device at MWC 2017” at the annual Global Mobile Awards (Glomo Awards) from GSMA.
