Sony's dual camera Xperia XZ2 Premium takes ultra-low-light photos

Adjust Comment Print

Xperia XZ2 Premium boasts the world's highest ISO 12800 sensitivity for video recording in a smartphone, as well as ultra-high sensitivity 51200 for photos [ii], enabling ultra-low-light capture previously only seen in interchangeable lens cameras. For selfies, it gets a 13MP f/2.0 front camera that uses display flash in low light situations. The camera system can record 4K HDR video and play that video back on the 4K HDR display of the smartphone. Xperia XZ2 Premium is IP65/IP68 [iv] certified to withstand splashes and spills.

However, the display has taken a major dose of adrenaline - the XZ2 Premium ditches the slightly modern 18:9 5.7-inch full HD+ HDR display in favour of a rather conventional 5.8-inch 4K HDR panel with Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The newest model of the company's 2018 range, the XZ2 Premium is the first to feature Sony's Motion Eye Dual camera system.

While the Xperia XZ2 comes with 4 GB RAM, the Xperia XZ2 Premium comes with 6 GB of RAM.
