Sony Launches Xperia XZ2 Premium with 16:9 4K Display in 2018

Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra

With the Motion Eye™ Dual camera you can also express your artistic side.

The Japanese company says its "AUBE fusion image signal processor" is going to cut down on noise, as shooting this high on a phone would usually produce little more than an eye-sore, but we'll have to wait and see.

Xperia XZ2 Premium supports USB Type-C audio and comes with Stereo speaker with S-Force Front Surround, DSEE HX and LDAC. The primary rear camera is a 12MP F/1.6 that works in unison with a 19MP camera with a F/1.8 aperture. It's a weird situation, seeing as how Sony nearly always releases its new phones in the United Kingdom, but it doesn't discount the option of buying an imported model.

Furthermore, not only can the handset capture video in up to 4K with HDR, it can also play it back courtesy of its 5.8-inch 4K HDR display, a slight increase in size compared to the original XZ Premium's 5.5-inch screen. It uses Sony's X-Reality upscaling technology, too, capable of turning non-HDR footage into HDR.

Otherwise, the XZ2 Premium's specs remain unchanged, so expect to find the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, IP68 certification, wireless charging support and Android 8.0 Oreo OS. The latter analyzes audio playback in movies and games in real-time, and then whips up custom vibrations to emphasize the soundtrack.

What Have We Learned From Facebook This Week
Yet Facebook kept the entire list, including the phone numbers for my auto mechanic, my apartment door buzzer and a pizzeria. On account of the shadow profile, he has an instant association with Ali in Facebook's "Friend's You May Know" feature.

Also like the XZ2 is the design. The device features a 3D glass body with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection at the front and back panels. The phone is IP65/68 dust and water resistant as well. While it sports the same design as the Xperia XZ2, the smartphone brings upgrades in the display, camera and battery.

Although for a while it seemed like the smartphone camera space had peaked, 2018 has had more than a couple of surprises for those looking to replace their dedicated camera. Huawei has raised the stakes even more with a triple lens camera on its new P20 Pro that's the best performing mobile shooter we've tested.

The next-generation Xperia smartphones sported an all-new design, 18:9 display with nearly no bezels on the side, support for wireless charging, and 4K HDR video recording - a first for a smartphone.

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

While the devices have already been launched on the UAE lately, the company has now announced their 4K smartphone called the Xperia XZ2 Premium. It'll be available globally, but pricing - and any carrier support in the USA - will be confirmed closer to release.
