Sony has a new high-end phone that is now being released. It is being called Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium. Let’s go deep into the specs and have a look at what you get!
Main specs: 5.8″ Display with 3840×2160 pixel resolution screen, Android 8.0 Oreo, Snapdragon 845 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4×2.7GHz Kryo 385 Gold and 4×1.7GHz Kryo 385 Silver, Adreno 630 GPU, microSD card up to 400GB, 64GB Internal storage, 6GB of RAM, Primary 19MP + 12MP camera, Secondary 13MP camera with F2.0, USB 3.1 Connector with Type-C 1.0 and 3540mAh battery!
The first thing that I love with this phone is the cool design. The dual rear camera looks awesome on the back side! It’s closer to the center. Usually other companies doesn’t do that kind of design. Below camera you can find a rear fingerprint sensor for easy unlock. They still included a nice distance between the camera and fingerprint sensor so you won’t confuse the two as you will on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S8.
Something that is a bit sad is that this phone still packs massive bezels on the front side which will be a negative for many people. The design is a bit cute because it comes with a rounded design that almost looks like an iPhone 3GS from 2009. That design is a bit nostalgic! But can also look a bit immature for 2018.
Another downside is that this phone is super thick with 11.9mm thickness! This is very fat for majority of people. And it doesn’t even pack 4500mAh battery. This is an IP65/IP68 water and dust resistant smartphone. Sadly it’s also missing a 3.5mm earphone jack. But it does pack latest Bluetooth 5.0.
The two colours you could get it in are either Chrome Black or Chrome Silver. I wish there was a Red, Green and Blue edition. Brown would also work pretty great. Some people think this phone looks like a panda. It seems like Sony is struggling when it comes to trying to make a very compact smartphone. The weight is massive 236 grams. I have no clue what is making it be so heavy!
