Sony Mobile Communications announced two new smartphones on Monday (26 February 2018) to headline its flagship range, Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact.
They’re built around the concept of bringing the most immersive entertainment experiences yet and boast advancements in camera, display and audio technology.
Xperia XZ2 has an extended 5.7” HDR Full HD+ 18:9iii display so you can immerse yourself in your favourite movies and content in exceptional colour and contrast.
Plus not only can you watch existing HDR content, using Sony’s BRAVIA® TV technology, X-reality™ for mobile, it will up-convert content to near High Dynamic Range (HDR) so even when you’re streaming videos you get better quality playback that feels like a movie experience.
A Touchy Subject
XZ2 incorporates Sony’s brand new Dynamic Vibration System. It analyses audio data and lets you feel the action in your hands, bringing your movies, games and videos to life.
Share your favourite videos with your friends thanks to the XZ2’s powerful front facing stereo speakers. Featuring S-Force Front Surround, they’re our loudest Xperia speakers ever.
Extreme Video and Photo Capabilities
Motion Eye™ camera is pushed to the extreme and gets a ground-breaking upgrade with the world’s 1st 4K HDR Movie recording in a smartphone.
Super slow motion video recording is also upgraded with 960fps now possible in Full HD.
The Motion Eye™ camera brings you great still photography features with its intelligent control features such as Predictive Capture with motion and smile detection, Autofocus burst and Predictive Autofocus.
The 3D Creator application allows you to create 3D scans of objects or friends’ faces in less than a minute using the main camera.
You can also now create 3D scans of yourself using the front camera.
