The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium will arrive in the upcoming summer. Using both sensors, you'll be able to introduce bokeh effects such as blurred backgrounds or take monochrome photos with a better blend of blacks and whites.
One of the main highlights of purchasing this flagship is undoubtedly going to be its camera. Let's discuss all this in this particular article.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium comes soon after the launch of the XZ2, casting a shadow over Sony's new phone. The Xperia XZ2 display is impressive, so we suspect the XZ2 Premium display will be great too.
Sony Xperia XZ2 went on-sale in the United Kingdom on April 6th 2018 for £699.
There's also a detail around the back of the new phone - a dual camera system which we'll talk about in a second.
Other features of the smartphone's camera have been listed below.
The Xperia XZ2 Premium looks like a slightly larger version of its current Xperia XZ2. It measures 158x80x11.9mm and weighs 236 grams. Sony's audio expertise also enables sound enhancing technologies for Xperia, such Hi-res Audio, DSHEE HX, and LDAC.
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.
The Premium model also has a 5.8-inch 4K HDR screen, while the regular XZ2 only boasts 5.7-inch Full HD+ HDR panel. It's the only smartphone to bring you true professional camera quality plus a premium entertainment experience, all powered by the ultimate in processing power with the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845. There is only one variant listed on the official website, i.e., 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM.
On paper, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium represents a significant upgrade over the plain ol' XZ.
Unlike the £699 Xperia XZ2, the XZ2 Premium has a dual-camera set-up on the back of the phone - a first for Sony. Both the cameras come with f/1.8 aperture and Exmor RS sensors. This is a 12-megapixel sensor with 1.55µm pixels and paired with an f/1.6 lens.
At first glance, the camera specs are a tangle of terms: "highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video recording" and "ultra-high sensitivity 51200 for photos". It runs on the latest Android d8.0 Oreo out of the box with the Xperia UI laid on top. It is also IP68 water-resistant, which was also expected from a high-end Sony mobile phone.
Sony also boosted the battery on this phone. It has front facing stereo speakers. It'll be sold in two colors: Chrome Black and Chrome Silver. What are your opinions on the design and the specs?
Most of the other features are carryovers from the standard XZ2, although that's not entirely a bad thing.
