Shortly after Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact arrived in stores on April 6, Sony introduced a new smartphone from this series. The Xperia XZ2 Premium is an enhanced XZ2 version. The terminal has a 4K display, a larger battery and a dual camera on the back (for the first time on a Sony smartphone).
The display, like the XZ2, has a diagonal size of 5.8 inches (18: 9 image format), but is capable of delivering 4K HDR quality content.
The most important update for the Xperia XZ2 Premium is the camera. It draws attention to the fact that the dual-camera system is capable of reaching a maximum ISO of 51,200 for photos and 12,900 for video. Because the images are not grained, the company claims to use a sensor that combines the data received from the two sensors (color and monochrome), optimizes light and reduces noise. Sony claims that XZ2 Premium delivers superior low light performance
Like the Xperia XZ2, the new model can shoot super slow-mo at 960 fps, Full HD. And the front camera received an update with a 13 MP sensor, compared to 5 MP on XZ2
It's weird that the Xperia XZ2 Premium will not be able to use the camera's Bokeh and black-and-white modes from the start. These will be added through a future software update.
The terminal includes a larger 3.540 mAh battery (compared to 3.180 on XZ 2) and a standard 6 GB RAM
Otherwise, the Xperia XZ2 Premium has the same technical characteristics as the Xperia XZ2.
