Sony Xperia XZ2 & XZ2 Compact Launched

Sony Xperia XZ2

The second generation Xperia XZ phones feature an improved camera, a better design, and personalized vibrations. The 5.7-inch Sony Xperia XZ2 and the smaller 5-inch XZ2 Compact both employ Snapdragon’s latest 845 processor.

Sony has always provided excellent sound and screen quality in its smartphones due to in-house electronics expertise and knowledge. It’s adding an additional dimension by letting the phone vibrate to enhance the experience when, for example, watching a movie. The user can customise different apps. It’s also possible to configure the vibrations associated with a specific sound when adjusting the volume by using a control panel. A newly developed vibration motor that contains a larger moving part is used to generate the vibrations.

Sony has obviously focused on vibrations when developing Sony Xperia XZ2. Luckily, it hasn’t neglected the camera. The camera’s image processor has been rewritten from scratch thereby improving the image quality, reducing noise and enhancing color rendering. The camera is capable of recording in 4K HDR, which differentiates XZ2 from many of its competitors. Furthermore, the front selfie camera supports 3D scanning to create animated avatars, which is perfect timing since Facebook now supports this type of 3D-photos.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact resembles its larger sibling. The main difference is that the rear side is made out of plastic instead of glass. The plastic material means that the phone is unable to support vibrations and wireless charging.

Availability & Price

Both phones are available for pre-ordering and sales commence on the 6th of April. The price for XZ2 is $1,399 and XZ2 Compact is $999.
