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.
