Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium arrives with dual cameras and 4K HDR screen

The company claims that the display on this smartphone is 11 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than its predecessor. 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. Say hello to the Xperia XZ2 Premium. So, what are the main highlights of the phone and what are the things that it is missing?

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium comes soon after the launch of the XZ2, casting a shadow over Sony's new phone. On the rear, there is the similar vertical arrangement of the LED flash, camera lenses and the fingerprint scanner. The only difference is that there is now a dual camera setup on the back, something we missed on Xperia XZ2. And if the revamped design of the current XZ2 models haven't grabbed you, Sony is betting that an improved camera on the Premium version of the phone will.

We expect to hear more about the Xperia XZ2 Premium as it gets closer to its summer ship date. However, it is an upgrade in every other area, be it the display or the camera. The regular XZ2 has an 18:9 display. Instead, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has a 16:9 4K HDR panel. It measures 158x80x11.9mm and weighs 236 grams. That means the Xperia XZ2 has smaller bezels than the XZ2 Premium.

Talking about the specifications, there is a 5.8-inch 4K (2160 x 3840) display on the front with HDR playback support. Under the hood, the Xperia XZ2 Premium packs 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platform coupled with Adreno 630 GPU and 6GB of RAM. The Xperia XZ2 Premium also shoots 4K videos with HDR and it can also record 960fps super slow-mo videos up to Full HD resolution. There are features like Smart Stamina, Stamina Mode, Qnovo Adaptive Charging, Quick Charge 3.0 and Qi Wireless Charging. The Japanese company just introduced its first phone with dual cameras - Xperia XZ2 Premium. The dual camera, by the way, has one color lens and a monochrome lens.

Sony says the new cameras are better in ultra low light, which is a feature that Sony has always been keen to promote on its phones.

On the front, there is a 13MP camera with f/2.0 aperture which is a big step up from 5MP front camera of the XZ2. It also bears a 4K HDR Triluminos display, and an IP65/68 rating for dust and water resistance.

Sony also boosted the battery on this phone. Featuring S-Force Front Surround, they're our loudest Xperia speakers ever. The price of the Xperia XZ2 Premium has not been revealed yet and it is likely to be available from May 2018 onwards. The phone is available in either Chrome Silver or Chrome Black and is already IP65-IP68iv certified, as well as, powered by Android 8.0 Oreo. What are your opinions on the design and the specs?

The important part about the Xperia XZ2 display is the change in aspect to 18:9, created to give you more display for the size of the body.
