Sony definitely has set its eye on capturing the hearts and pockets of smartphone photography enthusiasts. This is what we can conclude from the latest leaked internal slide which points towards Sony working on a new camera feature called ‘Motion Eye’ which, as claimed in the slide, is ‘world’s first memory embedded camera.’
We might see this new ‘Motion Eye’ feature coming in two of Sony’s high-end smartphones called Xperia XZs and Xperia XZ Premium.
The new ‘Motion Eye’ feature works by allowing your Xperia phone click four pictures in the one second before you hit the shutter button. It is a type of predictive capture.
Apparently, this isn’t the first time we will be seeing a smartphone with a predictive capture capability. Apple and Samsung have brought this feature in their iPhone 6s series and Galaxy S7 series respectively, only known via different names. Apple has named the feature as Live Photos while Samsung likes to call it Motion Photo (very very near to Sony’s Motion Eye).
The two Sony phones- Xperia XZs and Xperia XZ Premium- which are reported to be launched with this new camera feature will not be unveiled during the upcoming MWC event (to our dismay). The Xperia XZ Premium is touted to be the successor to Xperia Z5 Premium and will sport a 4K display, Snapdragon 835 processor.

Sony has reportedly lined up a set of five phones to be unveiled at MWC. And we do really really hope that the OEM builds up the drama even higher by showcasing this new Motion Eye feature at the event.
