Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium vs Xperia XZ2: What's the difference?

The Xperia XZ2 Premium also shoots 4K videos with HDR and it can also record 960fps super slow-mo videos up to Full HD resolution. While it sports the same design as the Xperia XZ2, the smartphone brings upgrades in the display, camera and battery.

To further enhance low-light imaging, the Xperia XZ2 Premium supports high sensitivity up to ISO 51200 for photos and ISO 12800 for video.

The main USP of the Xperia XZ2 Premium is its cameras.

Pricing also hasn't been revealed but, assuming it ships to the U.S., we'd expect it to be a fair whack more expensive - think up to $1000 and at least $900, compared to the XZ2's $800 unlocked asking price in the States. We knew it was coming, but we had no idea it would be so soon. We were impressed by how slick and fast the Xperia XZ2 was and we'd expect a repeat of that in the XZ2 Premium, boosted by the expanded 6GB RAM.

The biggest change is to the device's image capturing capabilities, with Sony equipping the XZ2 Premium with a dual-camera configuration - this represents a first for the company - comprised of one 19-megapixel colour lens and a 12-megapixel monochrome sensor. You can check out the details specs of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium below. In the camera department, there is a dual camera setup on the rear featuring 19MP RGB sensor with f/1.8 aperture and 12MP Monochrome sensor with f/1.6 aperture.

Neither device offers a 3.5mm headphone socket, so it's USB Type-C for the audio and charging.

Last year, Sony made big waves with the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. For a more immersive video playback, it also gets S-Force surround sound and a Dynamic Vibration System that vibrates like Sony PlayStation's "DualShock" controllers.

The phone will be available in Single SIM and Dual SIM variants depending on the markets. The previous model cost £649 at launch, which the new model obviously won't, so we suspect it will be £799 - but obviously nothing has been confirmed.

Sony dubs its new Xperia XZ2 "ultimate creation machine", thanks to its new camera technology. It had the honor of being named as the "Best New Smartphone at MWC 2017". Both the cameras come with f/1.8 aperture and Exmor RS sensors. The company has not talked about pricing but confirmed that the phone will be available globally from Summer 2018.

The display isn't the only thing with the HDR tag on this phone; the XZ2 Premium joins the standard XZ2 in offering 4K HDR video recording as well. While the Xperia XZ2 is reasonably priced alongside competition, the XZ2 Premium will have to ensure it doesn't become a handset no one can afford to buy.
