Sony being a brand has been the first choice for several user’s past few years and yet it is again putting some effort into its smartphone lineup. The company as always on the very first day of MWC 2018 event unveiled the XZ2 & XZ2 compact smartphone models. These devices have been powered-up by the all-new Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor i.e also expected to come inside several other upcoming flagship devices later. The XZ2 is featuring a 5.7 inches of display while as a trend its compact model has 5.0 inches of display, from which users can opt according to their suitabilities.
Considering the overall design of the newly unveiled smartphones, the company refers it as “Ambient Flow” & that too seems to prove while looking it from the back. As it has some nicely sloped aluminum rails on each side. Talking about the XZ2, it features a 5.7 inches FHD display having an aspect ratio of 2:1 & 2160 x 1080 pixels of resolution that also supports HDR and the company also says that it automatically up-converts SDR content to look more colorful and vibrant at the same time. As compared to its predecessor, the top & bottom bezels have been minimized significantly & been provided a support for wireless charging too in the XZ2 model.

A dedicated camera shutter button is also there which helps the 19 MP sensor inside the device to capture great resolution pictures. While shooting a 4K video, the camera is now also capable of capturing HDR color, and the ultra slo-mo mode can even record 960fps footage at a higher 1080p resolutions. The XZ2 is powered up by Snapdragon 845 processor with 4 GB RAM & 64 GB storage facility that can be extended through microSD card slot. Another unique feature of Sony XZ2 is the new Dynamic Vibration System that makes the phone rumble along with media (movies, music, trailers, etc.) and games. Sony’s tagline for the feature is that it helps you “feel your media.”
The XZ2 compact features a 5 inches of display & includes the same processor & camera specifications while just losing the all-glass back that has been compensated by plastic material & it also lacks the Dynamic Vibration System & Wireless charging too. The camera of both the new devices has also been repositioned to the center while placing a fingerprint sensor under it. Holding the device with grip is more easier with the changed rectangular design as in previous Xperia devices. While supporting hi-fi audio, AptX HD & LDAC codecs in order to deliver some high-quality wireless audio experience to its users, the company isn’t providing any headphone jack in these smartphone models.
Price & Availability: XZ2 & XZ2 Compact
These Sony Xperia XZ2 & XZ2 Compact smartphone devices will be getting available in Black, Green (with Bluish feel), Silver & Pink color variants but unfortunately the release date & price for them are yet to be revealed. Although it is very clear that both the phones will support AT&T and T-Mobile carriers & I think that Sony’s lightweight & stock-ish Android 8.0 Oreo software will easily make a way to its user’s heart.
