The Snapdragon 835 platform also supports stunning graphics, superior performance, and enhanced battery efficiency. File transfers are also supercharged thanks to the USB 3.1 connection which is 10 times quicker than USB 2.0 with a transfer speed of up to 5Gbps.The Xperia XZ Premium is powered by a 2.45GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clubbed with 4 gigs of RAM and 64GB of internal memory which is further expandable by up to 256GB via a micro-SD card slot.
