Sony has officially unveiled the Xperia X2 Premium, the tech company’s
latest and most advanced flagship smartphone that puts display and
camera technology as the topmost priority. Still keeping with the
signature sharp rectangular design of the traditional Xperia line, the
X2 Premium brings in, as what Sony claims, the world’s first 4K HDR
display for a smartphone.
The Sony Xperia X2 Premium Specifications
5.5-inch screen display, with the aforementioned 4K 2160×3840
resolution, all fitted into a chassis that features an eye-catching
mirrored finish. The phone is also equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon
835 chipset, which is the latest processor from the chipmaker. It is
the that provides the power for the smartphone and, according to Sony,
allows for up to 1GBPS of downloads speeds, courtesy of the integrated
Snapdragon X16 LTE modem.
Sony Xperia XZ Premium Display
This is where shizz gets real. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium features a
5.5in 4K LCD display which nets you an INSANE 806ppi. The Sony Xperia XZ
Premium also features HDR as standard, meaning what you have here is
perhaps the most advanced mobile display on the planet right now.
The handset also features Sony’s Triluminos and X-Reality technologies,
which are designed to improve image quality even further. And if that
wasn’t enough, Sony has partnered with Amazon to bring a raft of 4K
content to the Xperia XZ Premium, so you can take advantage of its 4K
panel right away.
Sony Xperia XZ Premium Camera
Sony’s gone BIG in the imaging department as well.
The Xperia XZ Premium features a 19MP rear camera and a 13MP setup on the front for selfies.
The Xperia XZ Premium is the world’s first phone to feature Sony’s
memory stacked Exmor RS sensor which delivers faster image scanning and
data transfer – Sony says its 5X faster.
The pixels inside the 19MP camera are 19% larger compared to Sony’s
previous flagship. As per usual, there’s a bunch of supplementary
features like Predictive Capture, Anti-Distortion Shutter, and super
slow motion video recording at 960fps.
Basically: this is one hell of a camera setup. I cannot wait to test it out properly.
