SONY XPERIA™ XZ2 COMPACT COMING TO CANADA EXCLUSIVELY WITH VIDEOTRON
TORONTO, April 4, 2018 – Sony Mobile Communications (“Sony Mobile”) today announced the Xperia XZ2 Compact, the world’s most compact 5” smartphone with HDR Full HD+ display, will be available in Canada exclusively with Videotron starting April 18. Xperia XZ2 Compact brings Sony’s advanced AV technologies to maximize entertainment in the palm of your hand.
Announced at MWC 2018, Xperia XZ2 Compact brings premium performance to elevate every photo or video with Sony’s 19MP Motion Eye camera system and a 1GB memory-stacked camera sensor, which was the world’s first system to deliver 960fps Super Slow-Motion video capture in a smartphone. The camera system can now record Super Slow-Motion in either 1080p Full HD or HD mode. And for the first time ever, the camera on the Xperia XZ2 Compact captures video in spectacular 4K HDR, which allows for more contrast, colour, and detail.
Xperia XZ2 Compact features an all-new “ambient flow” design approach using premium materials (such as Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5), so the dynamic curves and arches flow naturally and emphasize both style and functionalism. Xperia XZ2 Compact also features an anti-scratch hard-coated polycarbonate back panel with frosted finishing and an anti-twist and bend the aluminum frame. The advanced design houses Sony’s stunning 18:9 aspect ratio Full HD+ HDR display on the 5” Xperia XZ2 Compact, which produces crisp, clear images and videos. This smartphone is also equipped with the Advanced X-Reality engine to optimize your viewing experience by up-converting any standard dynamic range (SDR) downloaded or streaming videos to an HDR-quality viewing experience.
Xperia XZ2 Compact also features Sony’s stereo S-Force Front Surround Sound speakers, achieving clear and more dynamic sound by expanding both the low and high range frequency response and optimizing the high precision signal processing (making these devices 20 percent louder than their predecessors). High-quality audio is also provided using Sony’s audio expertize with the truly authentic sound of Hi-Resolution Audio together with DSEE HX technology for upscaling. Quality is guaranteed when connecting to wireless speakers or headphones thanks to the enhanced Bluetooth technology LDAC, which offers near HighResolution Audio.
Xperia XZ2 Compact will be available in the White Silver colour from Videotron. Xperia XZ2 Compact will be $699.95 outright at Videotron.
