New XZ2 Premium has Sony's brightest ever 4K HDR smartphone screen

Sony has officially announced the Xperia XZ2 Premium, the top dog in the XZ2 range.

That said, the rear cameras also come with AUBE fusion image signal processor that allows recording videos at ISO 12800 and taking photos at ISO 51200.

That, Sony promises, is the sort of sensitivity that until now would have required an interchangeable-lens camera. In the camera department, there is a dual camera setup on the rear featuring 19MP RGB sensor with f/1.8 aperture and 12MP Monochrome sensor with f/1.6 aperture.

Elsewhere, the dual-camera can also capture portrait mode, which Sony brands Bokeh Mode. Thanks to this display you can enjoy your own 4K HDR content (since this is the only smartphone capable of both creating and viewing 4K HDR).

In terms of design, the XZ2 Premium builds upon the design scheme of the Xperia XZ2, which means that it also looks greatly inspired by the HTC U11. Sony's phones are also known for the impressive audio output, and the XZ2 Premium is no exception.

Talking about the specifications, there is a 5.8-inch 4K (2160 x 3840) display on the front with HDR playback support.

Other improvements over the Xperia XZ2 launched last month in the United Kingdom include a bump-up to 6GB of RAM, and a greater battery capacity, 3,540mAh compared to 3,180mAh. The latter analyzes audio playback in movies and games in real-time, and then whips up custom vibrations to emphasize the soundtrack.

UP Police official suspended for 'tipping off' suspect
Asked about the demand for a CBI probe into the incident, the BJP leader said: "It is now for the court to decide". However, there was some amount of indiscretion on the part of the ministers for which they had to resign, he said.

On the front, the Xperia XZ2 Premium comes with a 13-megapixel camera.

Also like the XZ2 is the design. There is Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front and back. It also bears a 4K HDR Triluminos display, and an IP65/68 rating for dust and water resistance.

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.

First there was the Samsung Galaxy S9 and then there was the Huawei P20 Pro. Even with "just" two sensors, though, Sony's Motion Eye Dual technology could well make it the low-light king. The Xperia XZ2 Premium, as the name suggests, is an enhanced version of the Xperia XZ2 that made its debut at MWC 2018, and is yet to make its way to many global markets like India.

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

The Sony Xperia XZ2 has only just gone on sale but it's already been surpassed by Sony's latest launch, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium, which has just been announced. Pricing will be detailed closer to the launch.
