Sony Mobile presented the new Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact at IFA. The new high end smartphones incorporate new ground-breaking technology for mobile with 3D scanning as well as the latest Motion EyeTM camera for capturing detail beyond human eye capability. Both Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact combine advanced processing power with super-fast download speeds all wrapped up in a timeless premium design.
Showing a breakthrough in mobile creativity, 3D Creator is Sony’s unique, innovative in-house algorithm for fast and easy scanning of 3D objects, offering a new world of creative possibilities. For the first time ever in a smartphone, you can capture high quality 3D scans of objects in just one minute using the four scan modes; head scan, face scan, food scan and freeform scan.
Each mode has its own custom guides for ease of use and after finishing your object scan there are various playful options. Either share with your friends on messenger apps using 3D stickers or upload to the 3D community such as Sketchfab, make the scan come alive by using it to create an avatar for use in the camera AR effects options, third party apps or as a live wallpaper, or even send your scan to a 3D printer to make it into a memorable keepsake. Within the 3D Creator app you can also choose the ‘Find More’ button which takes you to even more possibilities available through Google Play, to explore a wider and ever growing 3D ecosystem.
Xperia XZ1 incorporates the latest Motion EyeTM camera built using know-how from Sony’s ‘α’ and Cyber-shotTM camera ranges, for capturing life in ways no other smartphone can. Its memory-stacked ExmorTM RS image sensor pushes motion capture to the next level and produces exceptional image quality. You can create sensational videos from your everyday moments by recording in 960 frames per second, providing stunning Super slow motion video playbackii.
Plus new Predictive Capture automatically starts buffering images when it detects action or even a smile, before you press the shutter button. So you can find a moment you may have missed from a selection of up to four shots. Its new Autofocus burst intelligently follows your subject, adjusting the focus to make sure your action shots stay sharp. Rounding off the premium camera experience is the first-class 13-megapixel front camera with a 1/3” sensor and a display flash to guarantee outstanding selfies in any light. Now even in 3D.
