Sony has an Xperia smartphone launch scheduled for 26 October and has released a YouTube teaser ahead of this, letting us know to expect a camera-centric smartphone, with a dedicated shutter button.
While the YouTube teaser, posted on the official Sony Xperia channel, doesn’t give much away at all, it does make it quite clear that this is no ordinary camera phone.

Photographer, Dane Isaac, also features in the video, saying “Having a dedicated shutter button on the camera…changes the game.” Filmmaker, Philip Bloom, also makes an appearance on the teaser, saying that the new Xperia camera phone is: “the best smartphone camera that I’ve ever used.”
