Find out the price of the Sony Xperia XZ2

At the same time, the previous design systematically evolved from generation to generation and only the most demanding fans could find the differences. To be honest, Sony Mobile has asked for a new design, and some have even asked, so the Sony Xperia XZ2 announcement is a kind of "alaverdi" to all fans who have long dreamed of a new look for the device.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 is completely different from the company's previous smartphones because it is made in the new Ambient Flow design concept. Its essence is that the smartphone becomes an extension of the hand. This is why Sony Mobile made it a bit "puzatenky". Now your smartphone literally falls into the palm of your hand and does not slip from your hand. The fingerprint scanner has moved to the rear panel in its center, not as previously announced XA2. In this sense, at first, the finger falls more often in the room, trying to unlock the device. The explanation here is simple: if you intercept your smartphone in the working position, your index finger will be exactly at the center point. The decision is controversial, but you can get used to it all.

Interestingly, the Sony Xperia XZ2 is equipped with the same Motion Eye camera unit, which uses a Sony IMX400 sensor with a stack memory module. The resolution is 19 MP. The equivalent focal length of the lens (yes, Sony continues to make a single camera) is 25 mm, and the brightness is F2.0. The physical size of the sensor is 1 / 2.3 inches. The camera, as before, supports autofocus in the predictive phase and there is also a laser range finder. There is an RGBC-IR sensor in the camera block, which is responsible for correctly evaluating the white balance.

Although the room unit has remained the same, it works a little differently; the reason is the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The Spectra 280 Image Signal Processor chip, which is responsible for image processing, is installed. Thanks to this chip, the Motion Eye camera shoots to a new level. However, this is still in the test.

The front camera is a little surprising due to its low resolution – only 5 megapixels. But it can be called the victim of a new design and display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9. The physical size of the sensor is only 1/5 ". The aperture ratio of the lens is F2.2.
