Share

After launching the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact at MWC 2018, Sony Mobiles has quietly announced the launch of Xperia XZ2 Premium. The only difference is that there is now a dual camera setup on the back, something we missed on Xperia XZ2.

Other features of the smartphone's camera have been listed below. It also bears Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Elsewhere, Sony is sticking a 5.8in 4K screen on the Xperia XZ2 Premium, an improvement over the 5.7in Full HD+ screen on the regular XZ2. This Xperia XZ2 Premium, however, could bring fresh life to Sony's struggling mobile division.

The Motion Eye™ Dual camera also features more professional features, such as 4K HDR Movie recording, so you can capture reality in incredible detail and true-to-life color.

Authorities are also continuing to search for members of another family farther south along the Mendocino County coast. They used an underwater probe to see if the vehicle or anything metallic could be located.

Sony dubs its new Xperia XZ2 "ultimate creation machine", thanks to its new camera technology.

Like the new XZ2 and XZ2 Compact, the Premium model runs on a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 845 processor. The lens is f/1.6, while the pixel size is 1.55μm. 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. For selfies, it gets a 13MP f/2.0 front camera that uses display flash in low light situations. Most of you are aware of the fact that the ISO measures the sensitivity of the sensor.

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. It's IP65/IP68 water and dust resistant, too. Even the front camera packs in the pixels, being 13-megapixels in resolution. It features High-Resolution Audio (LPCM, FLAC, ALAC, DSD), DSEE HX, LDAC, Clear Audio+, Stereo speakers with S-Force Front Surround, Stereo Recording, Qualcomm® aptX™ HD audio, Automatic Headphone Optimisation and more. It's a weird situation, seeing as how Sony nearly always releases its new phones in the United Kingdom, but it doesn't discount the option of buying an imported model. It will be available in two contemporary colors: Chrome Black and Chrome Silver.

Last year, Sony made big waves with the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. What are your opinions on the design and the specs? Naturally that's likely to come with an increase in price, but it's a small price to pay if the standard XZ2 just won't do. Tell us down in the comments.
