They look similar, but there are differences within.

The XZS here has a slightly smaller screen and more humble tech inside.

But it still has a a robust camera and the recent version of Android.

Meanwhile, the XZ Premium has a really neat super slow motion mode in addition to the usual filters.

You'll find a fingerprint reader on the power button, but it won't work in the US.
