Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium packs incredible 51200 ISO dual camera

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

Up to 4K video recording is supported, with HDR. Now, the Japanese technology major has silently added another smartphone to the lineup in the form of Xperia XZ2 Premium. It gets a 3D curved glass design for the back that comes with a mirror-like chrome finish. It will be available in two contemporary colors: Chrome Black and Chrome Silver. With XZ2 Premium you can also film like the pros using its 4K HDR Movie recording and play it back in the palm of your hand on the 4K HDR display, showcasing your favourite moments in crystal-clear detail and eye-popping colour and contrast. For a more immersive video playback, it also gets S-Force surround sound and a Dynamic Vibration System that vibrates like Sony PlayStation's "DualShock" controllers.

The phone is powered by Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with Adreno 630 GPU.

There is 64GB of internal storage that can be technically expandable up to 400GB. 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. The advanced camera technology on Xperia XZ2 Premium is thanks to the new dual sensor system in the Motion Eye Dual camera and AUBEā„¢ fusion image signal processor that captures more than the human eye can see.

At first glance, the camera specs are a tangle of terms: "highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video recording" and "ultra-high sensitivity 51200 for photos". This allows you to capture beyond what the eye can see. The Huawei P20 Pro - sadly still not yet confirmed for a U.S. release - has been wowing reviewers with its triple camera array, for example. Like the XZ2, the Premium can also record 960fps slow-mo video at 1080p, an improvement over the 720p limitation on Samsung's Galaxy S9.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is said to hit the shelves later in summer and we will let you know once the official local prices are announced by Sony Mobile ME. There's no OIS but videos are stabilised by its 5-axis SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode. "For the front, there is a 13-megapixel 1/ 3,06" Exmor RS sensor with 22mm wide angle lens and f/2.0 aperture. There's also 6GB of RAM (up from the XZ2's 4GB), a 3540mAh battery and aptX HD Bluetooth support. The Xperia XZ2 Premium is a comprehensive upgrade to the Xperia XZ2 in nearly all the departments. "As a comparison, the ceramic-based 6.4" Xiaomi Mi MIX weighs a much lower 209 grams and even the current XZ Premium is lighter at 195g. It also bears a 4K HDR Triluminos display, and an IP65/68 rating for dust and water resistance.

Just like its predecessor, the Xperia XZ Premium, this one also features a 4K display.
