Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium officially presented. Sony decided to surprise us and today announced the launch of the Xperia XZ2 Premium smartphone. This is a powerful equipment with Snapdragon 845 and 6 GB RAM, a 4K HDR screen with a diagonal of 5.8-inches and a dual camera. We know when Xperia XZ2 Premium has to hit stores.
The unexpected premiere of Xperia XZ2 Premium
Sony showed a new flagship at MWC 2018. Xperia XZ2 is a nice phone, but the vast majority of fans of the brand was waiting for the successor of the Xperia XZ Premium, which the Japanese did not show in Barcelona. When it seemed that we would wait for this premiere until IFA 2018, Sony pretty unexpectedly announced today that it is introducing the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium . Let's take a closer look at him.
Xperia XZ2 has a 4K HDR screen and a dual camera
The two most important novelties in the Xperia XZ2 are the screen and the camera. Let's start with a display that has a diagonal of 5.8 inches and 4K resolution , with standard 16: 9 aspect ratio. It is able to play content in HDR format. Sony did not decide on the OLED / AMOLED panel, reaching for the IPS LCD matrix.When it comes to the camera, it's double . Sony came to the conclusion that the best configuration would be a 19 MP + 12 MP connection . The main camera collects information about colors, and the additional camera is monochromatic – this solution is strongly promoted by Huawei. Interestingly, the camera is to allow taking portraits and monochrome images only after updating the software to be made available in the third quarter of 2018. The manufacturer pays special attention to the fact that the maximum ISO is 51200 for photos and 12800 for films. The Japanese argue that their signal processor will combine data from both matrices to optimize performance in low light and reduce noise so that the Xperia XZ2 Premium can capture great images in all conditions . Of course, the deck did not lack the possibility of filming 4K HDR movies and slow-motion in Full HD at 960 fps. Selfieaniacy will get a 13-megapixel camera.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The more powerful unit Sony could not put into its flagship. In addition, the Japanese finally got better and reached 6 GB of RAM . Plus 64 GB of fast UFS 2.1 memory. Xperia XZ2 should be a performance daemon.
