The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium diverges a bit from the conventional Xperia build because of its more rounded edges rather than the block design seen before. You would also see that the bezel at the side are absent but has rather large one on the top. Made from glass and a metallic frame which suggests wireless charging and also an IP68 certification. There’s no  3.5mm audio jack like its contemporaries and features a double front facing Dolby speaker for surround sound and the fingerprint sensor is located below the vertically arranged camera at the center of the back panel.

There’s only a handful of smartphones that has a 4K resolution display and the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is one of them. In addition the display is triluminous, a feature that improves colour reproduction and contrast. Sized at 5.8-inch with 3840 X 2160 pixels, it has a staggering pixel density of 760 ppi. It does deserve some accolades, with an added Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection.

Battery and Camera

Some of the improvements talked about earlier, extends to the battery capacity of the new flagship compared to the other XZ2 models. Although it’s just a slight bump, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has a 3, 540mAh Li-ion battery built-in which can be charged wirelessly or by fast charge through the USB Type-C port.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 sees the addition of an extra camera on the rear side, which is quite the way to go now in most of the premium smartphones. You have the collaboration of a main 19MP camera and that of a secondary 12MP camera to deliver a better picture and like it peers, is also capable of 1080p video recording at 960fps. On the other hand, selfies are taken care of by a 13MP camera.

It also offers the best of Qualcomm’s chipset same as the rest of the XZ2 family but with a slight upgrade other parts of the hardware which we will discuss later. The smartphone is powered by none other than a Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 with eight cores  clocking at 2.7GHz max and an Adreno 630 GPU for graphics munching.
