Sony's Xperia XZ2 Premium makes the two-month-old XZ2 redundant

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is set to go on sale this summer in other parts of the world, so if you're desperate to get your hands on the Xperia XZ2 Premium you'll have to look into potential imports in a couple of months' time.

That's right, Sony has released a higher-tier phone. Do let us know via the comments section. So what is this phone and how does it compare to Sony's other new phone?

Talking about the design, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium features a glass-metal sandwich build.

The camera appears to be a big focus with the Xperia XZ2 Premium, but it's not the only feature Sony's touting with its new phone. Sony calls it "Loop Design", giving you a curved rear panel that seamlessly wraps around the phone for a seamless finish. Things change a bit on the front as there is no 18:9 display as the Xperia XZ2. Now it's Sony's turn to boldly claim that its phone camera is the most advanced there is. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the rear and keep in mind that this smartphone does not feature a 3.5mm audio jack. It's the direct successor of the Xperia XZ Premium that was known for its 4K display. As we mentioned, it also switches the aspect back to 16:9, but there's a seemingly good reason for those.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium comes with 5.8-inch 4K HDR Display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The display is touted to be 11% larger and 30% brighter than the 4K HDR display used on the Xperia XZ2. That means the Xperia XZ2 has smaller bezels than the XZ2 Premium. Power comes from the expected Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM.

There's 64GB storage as standard in both models, with support for microSD expansion. However, both also support Qi wireless charging. And it's not just about increasing the screen size, or putting in a bigger battery. The Xperia XZ2 gets a 3180mAh battery while the XZ2 Premium takes this up to 3540mAh.

IPL 2018: Sunrisers Hyderabad cruise to first win at Eden Gardens
He has contributed in each of the three opening matches, with 2-21 against Kolkata enough to see him named player of the match. Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Kolkata Knight Riders in a fairly one-sided affair at the Eden Gardens on Saturday.

The Motion Eye™ Dual camera also features more professional features, such as 4K HDR Movie recording, so you can capture reality in incredible detail and true-to-life color.

Instead, the Japanese firm has split image capture between one 19-megapixel colour sensor and a 12-megapixel monochrome. It's also capable of 960fps super slow-motion and bokeh.

There's a difference in the aperture of the lens, however, giving the XZ2 Premium f/1.8 while the XZ2 is f/2.0. Considering the XZ2 costs $799, expect to pay more for the Premium version, given its more impressive specs. The lens is f/1.6, while the pixel size is 1.55μm. Yes, the aim is to give you better low light imaging and everything about that camera screams "low light". It features High-Resolution Audio (LPCM, FLAC, ALAC, DSD), DSEE HX, LDAC, Clear Audio+, Stereo speakers with S-Force Front Surround, Stereo Recording, Qualcomm® aptX™ HD audio, Automatic Headphone Optimisation and more.
