It is definitely a heavyweight at 195g.

Still feel that Sony can be more generous with the battery size, if redmi 3s can offer 4100mah I don't see why they can't do it with XZ Premium. This phone will be perfect with that battery capacity.

The Xperia XA1 has 3GB of RAM, others has 4GB including the XA1 Ultra, XZs and XZ Premium

That may be true. We can wait for a teardown of the phone to see how they utilise the internal space to see if there is still room for larger battery.

But almost at 200g, any bigger battery will make it heavier.

The Xperia XZ Premium is the world's first smartphone to feature a 4K HDR display, that's used to only to be found on 4K Television.


Is it a full 4k display, or like z5p only 4k when displaying 4k videos/pics

LTE Cat16 1Gbps modem
UFS storage instead of eMMC
USB3.1 Type-C instead of USB2.0
NFC returned to the rear
UI now renders in 4K

With the phone now ready to let loose with its 4K HDR action, we're finally able to see just how incredibly sharp, detailed, and colorful this screen appears in person. In addition to getting to check out Sony's familiar Android UI on the ultra-high-res new screen, we also watched some demos of how the new 4K support for HDR video compares with the old Z5 Premium, which lacks that HDR mode.

Specs looks perfect
Except for the large top and bottom bezel

after looking at LG G6 and Galaxy 8S (those leaked videos), I am sold for a less bezel phones.

Will Sony screw up their camera software on phone again? That is one impressive camera sensor but I seriously hope they put some effort into their software part.

Don't like LG so that's out n it's using an older processor(don't like the idea of paying for a flagship but getting older specs). S8 might fit the bill but had bad experience with Samsung previously so need to consider. Interestingly all are doing away with physical home buttons n the waterproof route which Sony had done with their phones way back.
