Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium now available with 5.8-inch 4K HDR display


The LG Signature Edition isn’t the only premium smartphone that’s launching this week.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is now available from Amazon. It’s being sold as a GSM unlocked device, meaning it’ll work with carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S. There are two color options available: Chrome Black and Chrome Silver.

No matter which color you choose, you’ll get a smartphone with a 5.8-inch 3840×2160 HDR display, which is a higher resolution than many other smartphones on the market. The rest of the Xperia XZ2 Premium’s spec list is just as high-end, boasting a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, a dual rear camera setup with a 19MP color sensor and 12MP monochrome sensor, and an ISO of 51,200 for super low light shooting.

Rounding out the Xperia XZ2 Premium’s spec list is 64GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot, a 13MP wide angle front-facing camera, USB-C, and a 3540mAh battery. Unfortunately, one thing that this Android 8.0-powered smartphone doesn’t have is a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The super high-res screen on the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium makes it kind of intriguing, and it’s good that Sony threw in a bunch of other high-end specs to go along with that impressive display. It is kind of a bummer that there’s no headphone jack on a phone this pricey, but it’s also not too surprising since ditching the headphone jack has become a bit of a trend in smartphones lately.
