Sony Announces Xperia XZ2 Premium, Comes Dual Rear Cameras & boasts “Ultra Low Light Photography”

Published

on

Sony launched its Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact last month with 18:9 display at MWC 2018. It has been a while since that and the company has geared up to release the premium variant of the Xz2. The Xperia XZ2 itself is a pretty high-end device and the premium variant is just a spec bump of its predecessor.

 

The display of the device is a huge 5.8 inch display featuring a 4K resolution. The device is HDR capable. The display technology used is 30 percent brighter than the base variant. The 4K resolution offers great media consumption experience.

 

There is a dual rear camera setup on the device. The camera has a speciality though. It features the highest ISO sensitivity seen yet on any mobile camera. 4K HDR recording capabilities make the video recording experience a breeze. Despite all these, the camera still doesn’t have Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). One sensor is RGB and the other is a black-and-white sensor which is used for collecting minor details of the background and processing them into a single one. The presence of dual cameras confirm the presence of the infamous portrait mode.

The ISO values on the device are insane. It has a whopping 12800 ISO for video and a solid 51200 ISO for photos. It is not sure if this score is the combination of both the sensors or the result of the individual sensors. The ISO values indeed depict the performance of the camera. It quantifies the sensitivity of the sensor towards light.

The front camera is a 13 MP with f 1/3 aperture. This is an improvement considering the 5 MP sensor on the XZ2. The battery capacity has also been improved. It now packs a bigger 3540 mAh. There is 6 GB of RAM to keep the performance smooth. The device will be available in two color variants – Chrome Black and Chrome Silver.

The device is expected to come out this Summer. The price is expected to be around  $899 which roughly translates to Rs.60,000.
