Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium debuts with super high ISO sensitivity

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

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. Sony is also promising a better front camera - you're now looking at a 13MP, 1/3.06in sensor that Sony says can take quality low-light selfies. However, while the sensor is capable of recording 4K HDR videos, it's not clear yet if the main sensor is capable of recording at 60fps. Instead, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has a 16:9 4K HDR panel.

Talking about the specifications, there is a 5.8-inch 4K (2160 x 3840) display on the front with HDR playback support. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium features an ultra-high sensitive dual camera setup on the back with the world's highest ISO sensitivity video recording in a smartphone (12800 for video and 51200 for photos). The Xperia XZ2 Premium is encased in curved 3D glass and with an aluminum frame and a mirror-like chrome finish.

Sony plans to sell the Xperia XZ2 Premium starting from Summer 2018.

Sony is outfitting the Xperia XZ2 Premium with something that it's calling an AUBE fusion image signal processor that combines the data of both sensors, optimises it for low light, and reduces noise allowing for ultra-low-light capture previously only seen in interchangeable lens cameras. The phone also features something that we missed on this year's Xperia XZ2, i.e., a dual camera setup on the back.

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. Qi charging is enabled to power up effortlessly and works with the new wireless charging dock (WCH20 [vi]) and other compatible Qi chargers. Considering the XZ2 costs $799, expect to pay more for the Premium version, given its more impressive specs. It will be available in Chrome Black and Chrome Silver color options. Like any Sony flagship smartphone, it also comes with IP68 dust and water resistance.

Both smartphones ship with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and have the latest Qualcomm silicon - the Snapdragon 845 - inside.

There might not be a headphone jack added to the smartphone, but at least you are getting a USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio jack adapter in the packaging. The XZ2 Premium's speakers themselves use the same S-Force Front Surround system as the XZ2, with Hi-Res Audio, DSHEE HX, and LDAC support. The pricing and exact availability details are yet to announced. Naturally that's likely to come with an increase in price, but it's a small price to pay if the standard XZ2 just won't do. Do let us know via the comments section.
