Exmor RS™ for mobile – stunning shots in any light
The camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile
is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor.
By adopting the technology of luminance and colour noise reduction, we’ve created a camera
that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise – even in challenging lighting conditions.
You’re now also able to reproduce objects in more vivid colours and capture night images

HDR for photos – natural colours in any light
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology used to capture clear photos against
strong backlight. With HDR, your Android smartphone captures the same image at different
exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. And thanks to HDR for video,
you can film in high contrast situations. You get great footage, even if your subject stands in
front of a window or the setting sun.
Superior Auto. Superior photos.
From illuminated night views to close-up macro photos, Superior Auto recognises up to 36
scene types and adjusts the settings automatically, to help you get the best photos
anywhere, at any time. As the default camera mode, Superior Auto turns HDR on or off
depending on your scene. HDR mode takes multiple shots with varied exposures and then
merges them together to make your photos look natural – even in backlit conditions.

Significantly improve battery life with
Battery STAMINA Mode
Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you’re not actively
using them. All those apps that you have on your Android™
smartphone may still be running in the background, draining your
battery. Battery STAMINA Mode saves you wasted battery drain. It
recognises when you’re not using your display and automatically
turns off the functions you don’t need, while keeping the
notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to
wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.
Get only the important notices
With Battery STAMINA Mode, Wi-Fi and data traffic are disabled
during standby, but you still receive incoming calls, texts and
alarms. And since everyone has different needs, you can easily
customise which apps you want to receive push notifications from
even in standby mode. Facebook notifications on or off? It’s up to
