Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium packs incredible 51200 ISO dual camera

Sony's dual camera Xperia XZ2 Premium takes ultra-low-light photos

Xperia XZ2 Premium supports USB Type-C audio and comes with Stereo speaker with S-Force Front Surround, DSEE HX and LDAC. Not only that, but it'll be the first Sony phone to come with a dual-lens camera system which Sony promises makes a massive improvement on the quality of the final picture. The monochrome sensor will bring in additional functionality - bokeh and black and white mode - later sometime in Q3 2018 via a software update, but it's the primary 19-megapixel sensor that - in tandem with the 12-megapixel sensor - is of particular relevance in the case of the Xperia XZ2 Premium.

Up to 4K video recording is supported, with HDR.

On the front, there is a 13MP camera with f/2.0 aperture which is a big step up from 5MP front camera of the XZ2.

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. We're eager to see how this phone compares not just to the rest of Sony's XZ2 lineup but other leading smartphones. It uses Sony's X-Reality upscaling technology, too, capable of turning non-HDR footage into HDR. Power comes from the expected Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM. The latter analyzes audio playback in movies and games in real-time, and then whips up custom vibrations to emphasize the soundtrack. It also bears stereo speakers.

Also like the XZ2 is the design.

The phone has 3D glass body with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the back. IP65/68 water resistance are on board, so you don't have to worry about getting the phone wet.

The Xperia XZ2 Premium also features their latest dual-camera sensors that were first showcased during MWC 2018. The Huawei P20 Pro - sadly still not yet confirmed for a USA release - has been wowing reviewers with its triple camera array, for example. This should roughly translate into some good photos even at ultra-low light conditions.

We'll know for sure later this year, when the new phone hits stores.

Well now today, the company has announced yet another flagship smartphone, dubbed Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium. It'll be available globally, but pricing - and any carrier support in the United States - will be confirmed closer to release.
