We do expect the XZ2 to ship with Oreo, and also come with Xperia's new Assist software, which is created to guide users through the various features of the phone with a chatbox interface.
Like many other people, we have complained over the past few years about Sony's stale smartphone designs. "As per Blass, Sony will be declaring the 5.72" XZ2, which is a follow up of the previous year's XZ2 model, beside a smaller 5.0" XZ2 compact smartphone model that had a prototype display online back this week.
The XZ2 with 6GB is being developed for specific markets and it is viewed as a necessary upgrade due to the overwhelming demand for large RAM count in those areas.
Sony has been dormant for a while with regard to the race to produce better smartphones.
The 5T features two Sony sensors, the main one being 16Mp with f/1.7 aperture, while the second one is a 20Mp with f/1.7 aperture.
It also has 4K HDR and full HD slow motion video recording, but unlike the XZ2 it does not offer Dynamic Vibration.
However, the phone doesn't come with any waterproofing or wireless charging - but these are the sacrifices you'd make considering you'd be paying quite a bit less in comparison. However, Hong Kong and Taiwan consumers could be lucky as the brand is going to release the phones in those markets with not 4GB but 6GB of RAM.
Sony's Xperia XZ2 ships with a 5.7-inch full-HD+ display featuring a resolution of 2,160 by 1,080.
With a 3,180mAh battery, Sony's Xperia XZ2 should be capable of lasting all day long on a single charge. It is also worth noting that the XZ2 has the ability to capture videos in 4K HDR. The gadget works on Android 8.0 Oreo and has a battery capacity of 3180 mAh. Meanwhile, the Xperia XZ2 Compact comes in Black, White Silver, Moss Green, and Coral Pink.
In terms of connectivity options, Sony offers USB Type-C (3.1), NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, Google Cast, GLONASS on both variants. Sony says late March or early April should see the duo hitting store shelves. While the specifications seem reasonable, we'll have to get our hands on the new device before we can really determine how well it performs in a variety of conditions. Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact are priced at €800 and €600 respectively. It's likely that will be a consistent price hike in the USA, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere.
When it came down to finally redesigning its phones, what did Sony do? It's essentially a haptic feedback system similar to what we've all experienced on most modern smartphones. And it's not just the visuals - the Dynamic Vibration feature, based on audio and data analysis, means you can feel the action too. However, it is more advanced, according to Sony, and it has been designed specifically with an entertainment emphasis to enhance music, films and games.
A smaller compact version of the XZ2 was also unveiled at this morning's press conference.
This ensures maximum compatibility as well - Sony hasn't had to come up with a new audio format and multimedia producers don't need to do anything fancy with games, apps, or other content - the software simply picks it all up and runs with it.
