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

Sony's dual camera Xperia XZ2 Premium takes ultra-low-light photos

When it was announced, Sony's dual camera solution had the world's highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video and ISO 51200 for photos. "It has 13 megapixels front camera with 1/ 3,06" Exmor RS sensor, 22mm wide-angle and f/2.0 aperture. The phone has a 4K HDR screen, Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6 GB RAM and the ability to capture photos and videos in extremely low-lit environments. Xperia XZ2 Premium is IP65/IP68 [iv] certified to withstand splashes and spills. Like its predecessor, the Xperia XZ2 Premium also shoots super slow-motion videos at 960fps in Full HD resolution in addition to shooting standard 120fps slow-motion videos. The Xperia XZ2 Premium has a Motion Eye dual rear camera setup with one 19-megapixel camera with a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS sensor, 1.22-micron pixels, and an f/1.8 aperture, as well as one 12-megapixel black and white camera with the same Exmor RS sensor, 1.55-micron pixels, and an f/1.6 aperture. The Xperia XZ2 Premium is encased in curved 3D glass and with an aluminum frame and a mirror-like chrome finish. It is powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor along with Adreno 630 GPU.

Despite the new design, it's a bit odd that Sony didn't implement the new bezel-less display with 18:9 aspect ratio that's found on the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact. A couple of months ago I was harping about how Sony was going easy with its penchant for fancy gimmicks with its newly launched Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. It is backed by a 3,540mAh non-removable battery and also supports QuickCharge 3.0 and Qi wireless charging. Dimensions measure 158 x 80 x 11.9 mm and it weighs 236g.

Sony is outfitting the Xperia XZ2 Premium with something that it's calling an AUBE fusion image signal processor that combines the data of both sensors, optimises it for low light, and reduces noise allowing for ultra-low-light capture previously only seen in interchangeable lens cameras. The smartphones get IP65/68 certification for being water and dust resistant smartphone. It runs on Android 8.0 (Oreo). The XZ2 Premium also has dual front-facing speakers, which the company claims are its loudest Xperia speakers ever, with S-Force Front Surround and Hi-res Audio.

The smartphone will be available globally from Summer 2018 in Chrome Black and Chrome Silver colour options. Sony's phones are also known for the impressive audio output, and the XZ2 Premium is no exception. What are your opinions on the design and the specs? Pricing hasn't been announced, but don't expect it to be cheap. Tell us down in the comments.
