A significant upgrade over the old Sony Xperia XZ2, new Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium shines with the updated camera module. And it also feels good seeing the pictures of this phone that this phone doesn’t have any display notch! Greater display, amazing dual camera, more battery life, different but catchy design. These are where the new XZ2 Premium step ahead of it’s older brother.

The Upgrade Game

The new Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium will surely put the regular Xperia XZ2 to shame! If you want to know what a company should do to upgrade their phones, then here’s the answer. Display size has increased from 5.7 inches to 5.8. Normal HDR display boosted to 4K HDR display! And it’s 30% brighter. Single camera jumped into a dual camera. Single 19 MegaPixel Motion Eye camera will be at a shame when you have a 12 MegaPixel Monochrome sensor and a 19 MegaPixel regular color sensor.

The most remarkable feature of its back camera is that it can capture videos at ISO 12,800 sensitivity. What about the image? Have you ever heard of ISO 51,200 on a mobile camera? Not until now. Yes, Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is bringing a whopping ISO 51,200 sensitivity in their camera! Great job Sony. Now you can shoot your memorable images in a complete dark situation. The older Xperia XZ2 weighted 198gm. But Sony has increased the weight of Xperia XZ2 Premium to 236gm. From the battery perspective, you can get extra 310 mAh juice to the new Xperia XZ2 Premium.

The mighty CAMERA

Talking about the camera of Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium will end up like this, “highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video recording” and “ultra-high sensitivity 51200 for photos”. That’s a whole lot of ISO to capture images and take videos in dark environment. Sony claims that you will be able to take crystal clear, sharp photo from its rear dual camera. They also claim that the technology they used in this smartphone can only be seen in modern DSLR cameras!

A mighty 960fps super slow-motion video camera will boost the video making game. Similar to Samsung Galaxy S9 and Huawei P20 Pro. Not a big deal right? But Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium can shoot that same frame rate of video at a higher resolution. It can shoot at 1080p resolution, 960fps. Samsung Galaxy S9 and Huawei P20 Pro can shoot only at 720p. That means Xperia XZ2 Premium can shoot clearer and sharper video.
