Sony's Next Xperia Phone Goes All In on the Camera

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

Other improvements over the Xperia XZ2 launched last month in the United Kingdom include a bump-up to 6GB of RAM, and a greater battery capacity, 3,540mAh compared to 3,180mAh.

That said, the display on Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium with X-Reality for mobile up-converts the video content to near HDR (High Dynamic Range) for a better, more cinematic experience. Apple and Samsung have a duopoly in premium smartphone market, and their closest competitors LG, Sony and HTC have lost out in the past few months.

Just like its predecessor, the Xperia XZ Premium, this one also features a 4K display. The Xperia XZ2 Premium is notably Sony's first high-end flagship phone to come with dual rear cameras. Right off the bat, the smartphone is running Android Oreo 8.0 and features dimensions of 80mm x 158mm x 6.4-11.9mm with a weight of 236 grams.

Furthermore, not only can the handset capture video in up to 4K with HDR, it can also play it back courtesy of its 5.8-inch 4K HDR display, a slight increase in size compared to the original XZ Premium's 5.5-inch screen. The rear camera also supports 4K HDR video recording and 960fps Super slow motion recording in HD or Full HD. The 5.8-inch 4K HDR display with 16:9 aspect ration looks brilliant (at least on paper) and it also comes with a Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The lens is f/1.6, while the pixel size is 1.55μm. "It has 13 megapixels front camera with 1/ 3,06" Exmor RS sensor, 22mm wide-angle and f/2.0 aperture. Most of you are aware of the fact that the ISO measures the sensitivity of the sensor.

When it was announced, Sony's dual camera solution had the world's highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video and ISO 51200 for photos. Even the front camera packs in the pixels, being 13-megapixels in resolution. The XZ2 Premium's speakers themselves use the same S-Force Front Surround system as the XZ2, with Hi-Res Audio, DSHEE HX, and LDAC support. It also bears a 4K HDR Triluminos display, and an IP65/68 rating for dust and water resistance.

The rest of the phone is fairly familiar territory. It will be available in two contemporary colors: Chrome Black and Chrome Silver.

It doesn't look like (according to our sources) the XZ2 Premium will be coming to the United Kingdom, despite Sony's promise that it will be available "globally" in summer 2018 when it ships with Android 8.0 Oreo. What are your opinions on the design and the specs? It follows the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact announced this past February. Tell us down in the comments.
