The Xperia XZ2 features an all-new “ambient flow” approach, premium materials, and IP68 water-resistant design renowned in Xperia smartphones. The advanced design houses Sony’s stunning 18:9 aspect ratio Full HD+ HDR display on the 5.7-inch Xperia XZ2, which produces crisp, clear images and videos. Xperia XZ2 is also equipped with the X-Realityengine to optimize your viewing experience by up-converting any standard dynamic range (SDR) downloaded or streaming videos to a near HDR-quality viewing experience.
S-Force Front Surround speakers deliver clear and more dynamic sound. Highquality audio is also provided via the truly authentic sound of Hi-Resolution Audio together with DSEE HX technology for upscaling. Xperia XZ2 also introduces Sony’s Dynamic Vibration System, a highly advanced visual-sound vibration technology that makes you feel what you hear. It’ll stimulate your senses to deliver more immersive music, video, and gaming experiences.
Xperia XZ2 is equipped with the Sony 19MP Motion Eye camera system and a 1GB memory-stacked camera sensor, which was the world’s first system to deliver 960 fps Super slow-motion video capture in a smartphone. The camera system has been upgraded to now record Super slow motion in either Full HD or HD mode. Also, for the first time ever in a smartphone, the camera captures video in spectacular 4K HDR.
Xperia XZ2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform with X20 LTE and will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.
