Sony Xperia XZ2, Xperia XZ2 Compact with Triluminos HDR Displays launched at MWC 2018

The day started early for Sony and took the advantage of the MWC 2018 to present two new smartphones. Having the code names Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact, both are redesigned flagships of the company. These devices move away from the sharp corners and more traditional design to a new style with Sony’s Reality Display engine. The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact equips every feature of Xperia XZ2 but it squeezes all details into one smaller rounded poly carbonate body.

Design:

These are company’s thinnest smartphones sporting a thickness of  just 11.1 mm with Aluminium frame. Sony has placed the fingerprint sensor to the back, just below the camera. Meanwhile, there is a USB Type-C port on the bottom of the device and the headphone jack, as expected has been removed.

Key Factors:

  • The rear camera of XZ2 includes a 19MP Motion Eye sensor which supports 4K HDR recording(@30 fps) with Autofocus burst. The f/1.8 aperture camera setup is a Motion Eye sensor.
  • Video recording on both the devices include 4K @30fps, HDR video up to 4K, [email protected], 1080p @960fps, 720p @960fps, Steady Shot, Stereo audio recording and Predictive capture. For details about Slo-mo and Predictive capture click.
