Sony's Xperia XZ2 Premium has a 4K screen, 51200 ISO dual cameras

The XZ2 Premium is powered by the same Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC clubbed along with Android Oreo 8.0. For low-light video, the phone has an ISO sensitivity rating of 12800 but for stills, it can go up to a phenomenal 51200. Those settings enable ultra-low light image and video capture that Sony says was previously only available with interchangeable lens cameras.

With the Motion Eye™ Dual camera you can also express your artistic side - select Bokeh [ii] and see your shooting subject stand out from a defocused background and take timeless photos in monochrome with a smooth gradation between black and white.

"The front camera also boasts some impressive specs - 13 MP with 1/3.06" Exmor RS sensor that can boost its sensitivity all the way up to ISO 3200. The newest model of the company's 2018 range, the XZ2 Premium is the first to feature Sony's Motion Eye Dual camera system. Yes, the display comes with 4K resolution. 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.

Not only can you see your movies with powerful realism you can even feel them thanks to Sony's brand new Dynamic Vibration System which analyses audio data and lets you feel the action in your hands, bringing your movies, games and videos to life.




"Given the strength of the existing Xperia XZ range, specifically the XZ2, XZ2 Compact, and XZ Premium, there are now no plans for widespread ranging of the handset [XZ2 Premium] in the United Kingdom and Ireland".

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 IP68 rated chassis of the Xperia XZ2 Premium measures 158 x 80 x 11.9 mm and weighs 236 grams.

It has 3D glass body and features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the back as well as on the front. Things change a bit on the front as there is no 18:9 display as the Xperia XZ2. It's available in Chrome Black and Chrome Silver colors. You will get immersive user experiences at lightning-fast connection speeds (up to 1.2Gbps) with the second generation Gigabit LTE solution. While the XZ2 and XZ2 compact feature respective batteries of 3,180 mAh and 2,870 mAh, the Xperia XZ2 Premium offers a comparatively beefier 3,540 mAh power pack.

Inside there's a Snapdragon 845 chip, as on the standard Xperia XZ2, but the RAM gets bumped up to 6 GB from the 4 GB included on the phone we saw at MWC. It is backed by a 3540mAh battery with a Smart Stamina feature, Qnovo Adaptive Charging and Battery Care that are claimed to enhance the lifespan of the battery.
