  • Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium arrives to take on Samsung Galaxy S9

In addition, the flagship also features a dual-camera with an extremely high-level of ISO sensitivity. As we mentioned, it also switches the aspect back to 16:9, but there's a seemingly good reason for those. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with 6GB of RAM. It honestly does not get better than this in the specifications department.

Juicing up this 4K smartphone is a 3,540mAh battery which supports Quick Charge 3.0 via USB-C. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, which was expected from a device like this.

Sony has also pimped the screen of the XZ2 Premium, giving it a 5.8-inch 4K HDR panel that should comfortably trump the 5.7-inch Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixel) HDR display found on the base XZ2, so those photos should look extra rich on your device. 18 LTE modem that can deliver up to 1.2Gbps throughput on the downlink side, which is very impressive. IP65/68 water resistance are on board, so you don't have to worry about getting the phone wet.

It is also worth pointing out that the Xperia XZ2 Premium is quite heavy at 236 grams.

Trump's re-election campaign has raised $10 million so far this year

HMD Global to bring back Android-powered Nokia X, hints teaser
It's not entirely clear from the ads, but the Nokia X could sport a 2.5D display and a metal body design. Right now that company has not announced whether Nokia X will be launched globally or just in Asia.


One of the main highlights of purchasing this flagship is undoubtedly going to be its camera. For selfies, it gets a 13MP f/2.0 front camera that uses display flash in low light situations.

There's also a massive difference in the available ISO: the XZ2 offers ISO 12800 for photo and ISO 4000 for video, while the headline feature of the XZ2 Premium is that it offers ISO 51200 for stills and 12800 for video. The dual lens system will also enable the popular bokeh effect for photos shot with Sony's camera, however, it will be made available sometime after launch in Q3 this year.

The power button and volume rockers are present on the sides along with the dedicated camera shutter key that we have seen on nearly every Sony phone launched previously. On-board cameras have increasingly become a way for smartphone makers to distinguish their products, with flagships from Apple and Samsung sporting dual lenses and Google touting the computational smarts of the cameras on its latest Pixels.

Xperia XZ2 Premium is the first-ever smartphone to feature the new Motion Eye™ Dual camera, consisting of a black-and-white sensor for capturing clear contrast and the color image sensor for accurate color. Still, the hardware alone will be sufficient to take on the likes of the Galaxy Note 9 and LG V35 ThinQ. The Xperia XZ2 Premium is encased in curved 3D glass and with an aluminum frame and a mirror-like chrome finish. We knew it was coming, but we had no idea it would be so soon.
