Sony Xperia XZ2 and Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact debut at MWC 2018. Thanks to new information (and from Sweden) we learned the specifications and prices of these smartons. Sony decided to screen 18: 9, remove the 3.5 mm jack connector and top components. Will the new Xperia smartphones achieve sales success?
On February 26, 2018, at MWC 2018 in Barcelona, Sony will present at least two new smartphones. Sony Xperia XZ2 and Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact will be top shelf devices. We've just learned the key elements of their specifications and European prices.
18: 9, 3.5 mm jack connector and fingerprint reader
Let's start with the fact that the Japanese decided to implement screens with 18: 9 aspect ratio . Importantly, both Xperia XZ2 smartphones will be able to play HDR content. Sony will also increase the screen diagonals in Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact (details in the rest of the entry). Ergonomics is not to suffer because the frames will be slightly reduced , and the bows will be bent as promised: https://www.instagram.com/p/BfX1ci0hBrg/?utm_source=ig_embed It is worth mentioning two important changes. First of all, Sony will abandon the 3.5mm jack connector . It is not known how the producer will argue the benefits of this decision, so I will be happy to hear it this coming Monday. If it comforts someone, then Sony is to add a new music feature that uses vibration. Unfortunately, it is not known how to do it properly. The key change for many fans will be the transfer of the fingerprint reader to the rear panel. In principle, this was expected from the presentation of Xperia XA2 smartphones.
Sony Xperia XZ2 – specification and price
Sony Xperia XZ2 is to receive a 5.8-inch Full HD + display (2160×1080), protected against damage by Gorilla Glass 5. The heart of the phone will be Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 , connected to 4 GB of memory. It's a pity that Sony has not decided on 6 GB of RAM. The manufacturer will allocate 64 GB of memory for user files. The Sony Xperia XZ2 is expected to cost 7990 crowns in Sweden, which, after a direct conversion, gives us just over 3,300 zlotys. I would not be surprised if the Polish price of this model was a little lower and fluctuated around 3000-3200 zlotys . Regular sale is expected to start on March 6 .
Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact – specification and price
Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact will be equipped with a 5-inch screen with Full HD (2160×1080). This is a big change compared to the predecessor. The higher resolution is pleasing, because thanks to this the displayed image should be perfectly sharp. The increase in the size of the display is not necessarily, but apparently the new smartphone will not be much larger than the Xperia XZ1 Compact. Literally yesterday, we could see the Xperia XZ1 Compact prototype in the photo. If in the final version the upper frame is indeed reduced, then these words will be confirmed in reality.As for the components, there is no surprise – Snapdragon 845, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory. The Xperia XZ2 Compact so equipped will go on sale on March 6 and will be valued at SEK 5990 , less than PLN 2,500. I think a similar valuation in Poland is very likely. Source: Swedroid.se
