Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium debuts with super high ISO sensitivity

Sony's dual camera Xperia XZ2 Premium takes ultra-low-light photos

The Xperia XZ2 Premium has a Motion Eye dual rear camera setup with one 19-megapixel camera with a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS sensor, 1.22-micron pixels, and an f/1.8 aperture, as well as one 12-megapixel black and white camera with the same Exmor RS sensor, 1.55-micron pixels, and an f/1.6 aperture. It sports a modern design with 5.8-inch display surrounded by thinner bezels, and supporting a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium will arrive in the upcoming summer. On the connectivity front, the smartphone features 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz / 5GHz) MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS/ GLONASS, NFC and USB 3.1 Type-C port.

The Xperia XZ2 Premium is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor along with Adreno 630 GPU. The Xperia XZ2 Premium is a comprehensive upgrade to the Xperia XZ2 in nearly all the departments.

"At 5.8", the Xperia XZ2 Premium's display is 11% larger and 30% brighter than its previous Xperia XZ Premium.

While we don't know exactly how the new XZ2 Premium camera will perform, we have seen a preview of the tech already showing some keen low light skills. The phone also features something that we missed on this year's Xperia XZ2, i.e., a dual camera setup on the back. Using the Aube fusion image signalling processor, data from both cameras are combined on the XZ2 Premium for better low light imaging. Moving on to the front, you get a 13 MP single camera with f/2.0 aperture and 22 mm wide-angle lens. It's also capable of 960fps super slow-motion and bokeh.

Armenians protest leader's plan to stay in power as prime minister
Pashinyan on Sunday had called on people to block Yerevan's bridges, streets, and subway on Monday. The change in the governing system was approved in a referendum in 2015.

The build quality is the same as the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has the same 3D glass on the rear and aluminum frame as the XZ2. XZ2 Premium has 6GB RAM for additional speed and efficiency. To be fair, the Xperia XZ2 camera isn't the best around, so the Premium has plenty to prove.

Pricing also hasn't been revealed but, assuming it ships to the USA, we'd expect it to be a fair whack more expensive - think up to $1000 and at least $900, compared to the XZ2's $800 unlocked asking price in the States. It also bears stereo speakers. Considering the XZ2 costs $799, expect to pay more for the Premium version, given its more impressive specs. The pricing and exact availability details are yet to announced.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium comes soon after the launch of the XZ2, casting a shadow over Sony's new phone. However, it does come with some improvements over the XZ2, like more RAM, more cameras, bigger display with higher resolution, and of course, bigger battery. The main rear camera is a 19MP sensor with 1.22μm pixel size and f/1.8 aperture.

At first glance, the camera specs are a tangle of terms: "highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video recording" and "ultra-high sensitivity 51200 for photos".

Price will be a big factor here.
