Sony's new Xperia flagship shoots 4K HDR videos

Like it was earlier rumoured, Sony has made some radical changes to the phones' design language, doing away with its OmniBalance design that has been around for around half a decade.

The fingerprint sensor has also moved from the side of the device to the rear center, which likely promises a working fingerprint sensor in the U.S. - just like the new XA2 mid-rangers do. The camera component layout is slightly different on the XZ2 Compact.

As per sources, TIW came to know that the 5.7-inch XZ2 and 5.0 inch XZ2 Compact mostly possess the same features. The display also comes with Sony's trademark technologies such as Bravia TV, TRILUMINOUS and X-reality for mobile.

Internally, the XZ2 features Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 845 system-on-a-chip, complete with the chipmaker's blazing fast X20 LTE modem, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (expandable by up to 400GB thanks to the inclusion of a hybrid SIM tray that can hold two SIM cards, or one SIM card and microSD card).

Furthermore the front face of these two models also offer high amplitude sound with the "S Force" speakers attached there. Sony claims the handsets as the first in the world to sport 4K HDR Movie recording.

The fingerprint scanner now sits on the back, below the 19-megapixel camera - and it will be unlocked on all devices including those purchased in the US. But, if we look at the history of Sony Xperia devices, then there's one device that hasn't yet been updated, and that's the Premium.

The images are of the alleged Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact and have been provided by Evan Blass, who had leaked a few similar images a couple of days back. Up front, there is a 5MP selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture.

Notably, Sony also put out a 23-second video, teasing its next-generation smartphone.

The Xperia XZ2 now comes with a large 5.7-inch IPS HDR displays with HDR support. Sony's new smartphones will compete with Samsung's Galaxy S9 as is it expected to have a Snapdragon 845 processor too. The smaller size decreases battery life with a 2,870 mAh, with a 5-inch display and FHD+ resolution rather then the HD+ on the HZ2. However, it lacks the "Dynamic Vibration System" and wireless charging present in its bigger brother.

In fact the camera has been given a major upgrade, allowing it record video in 4K and HDR.

2018 is a new start for Sony. And it seems as though you'll need the charging case - Sony says to expect just five hours of music listening from a full charge. Sony does drop in the name "Fusion image signal processor", but that's about all.
