Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium packs incredible 51200 ISO dual camera


There's a bright live view-finder so you can see the picture before capture.

Those two features work together to capture more than the human eye can see.

The display isn't the only thing with the HDR tag on this phone; the XZ2 Premium joins the standard XZ2 in offering 4K HDR video recording as well.

Talking about the specifications, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium runs on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system with the Xperia UI laid on top. The Xperia XZ2 Premium features a dual camera setup at the back which is a combination of one 19 MP and one 12 MP camera. Detail from both sensors is then processed by the AUBE™ fusion image signal processor in real time, enabling video recording with the highest ISO12800 sensitivity ever in a smartphone as well as ultra sensitive ISO51200 for photos. Its low light capability as well as artistic effects are available with live view-finder for an accurate reflection of your shooting subject. The rear camera also supports 4K HDR video recording and 960fps Super slow motion recording in HD or Full HD.

On the front, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium bears a 13-megapixel camera with a 22mm wide-angle lens, f/2.0 aperture, and a 1/3.06-inch Exmor RS sensor. Thanks to this display you can enjoy your own 4K HDR content (since this is the only smartphone capable of both creating and viewing 4K HDR). The Xperia XZ2 Premium is a comprehensive upgrade to the Xperia XZ2 in nearly all the departments. Other highlights include S-Force Front Surround sound through the front-facing speakers, Hi-res Audio, LDAC, and DSHEE HX.

What the Xperia XZ2 Premium does not have is a 3.5 mm audio jack, since the Japanese company made a decision to follow the trend of Apple, Google, and HTC devices.

However, those who signed-up to a 24-month mobile contract to get their hands on the new hardware will be disappointed to learn that Sony has teased the launch of an all-new Xperia XZ handset.

The phone has 3D glass body with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the back. Certified IP65/IP68 [iii], XZ2 Premium is also created to withstand splashes and spills. It's available in Chrome Black and Chrome Silver colors.

The phone is powered by Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 630 GPU.

The XZ2 Premium will have a decent bump in its RAM to 6GB, and the battery is now a healthy 3540mAh.

Sony unveiled its flagship Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact handsets during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) technology tradeshow, which was held in late February. The 3,540 mAh battery supports Qi charging, and Sony has a new WCH20 wireless charging dock that will launch alongside the XZ2 Premium too.
