Sony’s 3D Creator app is coming to the XZ Premium

One of Sony’s newest Xperia features introduced at IFA 2017 is its new 3D Creator app. The app can be found in the newly announced Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact, but the good news for Xperia XZ Premium owners is that 3D Creator will also be heading their way once the phone receives its Android 8.0 Oreo firmware update.

As part of the same update, the Xperia XZ Premium will receive improved camera features including Autofocus burst, which snaps moving objects in sharp focus, so there’ll be no more blurred action shots. The other addition is Predictive Capture, which now recognises smiles, and automatically starts buffering images before you snap the shutter.

Sony confirms Xperia XZ Premium to receive 3D Creator app in Android 8.0 Oreo

Sony 3D Creator app

The Sony 3D Creator app allows you to capture objects in 3D, which takes about 15-60 seconds. Four scanning modes are available including face, head, freeform and food. You can then save and edit your creations, as well as sharing them with friends/family or even get them 3D printed.

Your creations can also be used as a 3D wallpaper, or you can integrate them into the AR Effect app as an AR Object (bring your object into a new AR world) or AR Avatar (see your face on a different body)

The app has won high praise from all that have tested it, producing great results, making it hard to believe that a smartphone app can capture such detailed 3D models and avatars. At this stage, it’s not clear whether 3D Creator will also arrive on other older Xperia handsets, not including the Xperia XZ Premium. We’ll keep you posted on further developments.

Thanks Diogo, Marinko and Yut!

    that’s great news! hopefully they improve the camera a lot!

  • shumayal

    Please… Bring this app to the X F5122

  • Shehab Skull

    So Sony finally decided to do as old days ? I hope they really bring these legends days back when Xperia Z gets all the Z1 goodies by just an update

  • Moisés

    Does it require the power of 835?
    XZs should get it too.

  • KarFar

    So we can 3d print our 3d dick pics now?

  • raju

    What the use this app ? nothing

  • raju

    No because xzs 820. Snapdragon 835 will get

  • mountain

    So there are no reason to get the XZ1… since the difference is minimal, plus since the price of XZP has dropped, which roughly equals to XZ1?

  • Juan Carlos

    If you prefer a “metal” design instead of glass you should go for XZ1.

  • Moisés

    Depends… Some people do not want bigger screen.
    Or just do not need the 4K.
    I like glass, but some people do not..

    I wish the Premium was 5.2″ too.

  • Night Guy

    U can try it out one day -) . And share that 3d d*ck with us here.

  • shenoy

    I hope XZ1C comes to India.

  • Biancoceleste

    Excellent. Great to see them doing this.

  • raju

    Mee too

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I love the bigger screen on my xz premium compared to the small 5 inch screen on my X performance :) After a day of usage it doesn’t even feel larger at all either :)

  • azzido

    3d creator is useless and I do not bother it.
    What I am interested in is distortion fix or any other improvements to quality in pictures, however I doubt imx400 can improve with F2.0 and no OIS.

  • azzido

    I wish the Premium was 5.8″ with smaller bezels.
    Glass is best but not gorilla glass 5 as it scratches easily, especially on the back. Gorilla glass 4 was much better.

  • SomeoneYDK

    Gorilla Glass 5 doesn’t scratch that easily. If you’re getting this info from Jerry Rig’s video of the Note 7, you should know that those picks had small pieces of diamond causing the screen to scratch on earlier levels. He later corrected himself in another video.

  • abvc

    I have z3 compact. the reason i changed my phone to HTC is because the sound is too low, so low!. can Sony actually think and improve this simple side, the sound loudness? instead of promoting its camera while forgetting the volume of its speaker.

  • Talos the Robot

    That’s great, but we want the Burst mode too! Any news?

  • hansip

    I wonder if this app is laser guided or not. If the laser isn’t used, the chances to be ported to other device will be high. But I wish Sony uses them though, so non laser guided phone can’t use it ;)

  • Khalid Abdi

    And what’s the use of you commenting here? Nothing XD

  • MrWalker1000

    id get the xz premium if it wasnt so big and bulky. Terrible design on Sony’s end. that 4k definitely makes a difference though everything looks better.

  • Moisés

    For XZ Premium yes…
    I got sad when it was removed since android 6

  • Moisés

    Sony says speaker is 50% stronger than XZ, at least for XZ1.

  • azzido

    it scratches easily and is worse than gorilla glass 4. Had both and can compare.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Dude who says Gorilla Glass 5 doesn’t scratch. I got my XZP scratched withing the first week. I went nuts because of that. I didn’t use a screen protector on my Z3 and still it’s fine.

  • Alex Norris

    at XZ1, at least there should have been a dual camera, or more high aperture, something like that, but differences between XZP, almost not.

  • dpc4321

    Awesome! :-)

  • Thomas M

    Anyone who has used the Autodesk 123d or any other Autodesk app for 3D scanning?

  • Warren Chang

    I hope they port this app to XZs as this phone has same camera as XZ1 & XZ premium, the question is that does this app require the full power of the snapdragon 835 or can it run on relatively powerful 820, it’s possible it won’t run on less powerful phones such as snapdragon 801 or 810 or 650

  • Warren Chang

    you have a point, but XZs has laser guided and same camera as XZ1 and XZ premium

  • Warren Chang

    I hope they port this app to XZs as this phone has same camera as XZ1 & XZ premium, the question is that does this app require the full power of the snapdragon 835 or can it run on relatively powerful 820, it’s possible it won’t run on less powerful phones such as snapdragon 801 or 810 or 650, also possibility *(as some one mentioned here), may require the laser guidance on XZs, XZ1, XZ1 compact and XZ premium

  • Warren Chang

    XZs as this phone has same camera as XZ1 & XZ premium, snapdragon 835 or can it run on relatively powerful 820, it’s possible it won’t run on less powerful phones such as snapdragon 801 or 810 or 650 ( which the X F5122 uses snapdragon 650, and don’t use the same camera as XZ1 & XZ premium, it doesn’t have the laser tracking either), very unlikely

  • Warren Chang

    if the 3d creator apk file supports 820, as the 835 is marginal more powerful, but not significantly more powerful ( ie, double performance), then sony has done this for commercial reasons rather than technical reasons (xz1 is successor of xzs, then should have new features)

  • NinJy

    Hope it will not takes forever after XZ1 release to get it.

  • The One

    Yeah, I don’t trust sony’s marketing department on this one just yet. I’ll wait until the reviews start to come in. GSM Arena usually does a pretty good job of comparing the decibel levels of phone speakers. That will tell us the truth.

  • humma rimsha

    Got my 2nd check and it saids that i have received $15956. I am a full time college student and just working on this for 2 to 3 hrs a day. Every person can now get extra cash online by just use the information here.;’/,.,,

  • Chris

    That’s great, but the feature they should really bring over from the XZ1 is VOLTE and WiFi Calling in the US…

  • Attila Golik

    Working fine on XZs
