Sony Launches Xperia XZ2 Premium with 16:9 4K Display in 2018

Sony Launches Xperia XZ2 Premium with 16:9 4K Display in 2018

The company claims that the phone got 11% larger and 30% brighter display than the display on XZ Premium. It flaunts a dual rear camera setup that comprises a black and white sensor, and a color image sensor. Let's discuss all this in this particular article.

Sony dubs its new Xperia XZ2 "ultimate creation machine", thanks to its new camera technology.

The major highlight of the device is the new dual rear camera at the back. The only difference is that there is now a dual camera setup on the back, something we missed on Xperia XZ2.

We expect to hear more about the Xperia XZ2 Premium as it gets closer to its summer ship date. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details! However, it is an upgrade in every other area, be it the display or the camera. Things change a bit on the front as there is no 18:9 display as the Xperia XZ2. Xperia XZ2 Premium is IP65/IP68 [iv] certified to withstand splashes and spills. It also bears the 3.5mm audio jack.

Neither device offers a 3.5mm headphone socket, so it's USB Type-C for the audio and charging.

Elsewhere, Sony is sticking a 5.8in 4K screen on the Xperia XZ2 Premium, an improvement over the 5.7in Full HD+ screen on the regular XZ2. There is only one variant listed on the official website, i.e., 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM.

The Xperia XZ2 Premium comes with Quick Charge 3.0 support for its 3,540 mAh power cell.

The Xperia XZ2 Premium also has super slow-motion that captures video at a rate of 960fps. The lens is f/1.6, while the pixel size is 1.55μm. Most of you are aware of the fact that the ISO measures the sensitivity of the sensor. Xperia XZ2 Premium boasts the world's highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video recording in a smartphone, as well as ultra-high sensitivity 51200 for photos [ii], enabling ultra-low-light capture previously only seen in interchangeable lens cameras.

Sony has also fitted the Xperia XZ2 Premium with a better front-facing camera, 13MP on the Premium, compared to 5MP on the XZ2. The phone runs on latest Android Oreo and it is backed by a 3540mAh battery with Qnovo Adaptive Charging and it also supports wireless charging as well. The phone is IP65/68 dust and water resistant as well.

Sony also boosted the battery on this phone.

It comes in Chrome Black and Chrome Silver colors. What are your opinions on the design and the specs?

Pricing also hasn't been revealed but, assuming it ships to the USA, we'd expect it to be a fair whack more expensive - think up to $1000 and at least $900, compared to the XZ2's $800 unlocked asking price in the States. Tell us down in the comments.
