The Sony Xperia XZ2 is the company’s best phone in 2018, and now it’s getting a nice price cut in a limited-time deal over at B&H.
Google kicked its I/O conference with an announcement related to Android Things and Android Auto, but Android P got in the spotlight as well. Along with the official launch of the new Android OS for smartphones, Google confirmed that a beta build is now available for download.
However, unlike in the previous years when these beta builds were a Google Pixel/Nexus affair, for the most part, this time the search giant has decided to make Android P beta available to additional smartphones launched by other major companies.
Apparently, this is possible due to Project Treble, which means …
So, got yourself a splashy new Sony Xperia XZ2? Well, maybe not yet, but one of the first things you should do once you get your new device is invest in some high-quality protection that will prevent your device in pristine condition. And rightly so – the predominantly glass design of the phone is normally quite prone to crackling should you accidentally let the device slip off of your hands.
Sony has just revealed its brand-new Premium line smartphone today — the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium. It sports a Snapdragon 845, 6 GB of RAM, and a 5.8-inch display, which surprisingly still has the “classic” 16:9 aspect ratio, instead of going for the trendy 18:9. Of course, the Premium line is defined by its super-fine resolution and the XZ2 Premium is no exception — it has a 4K (2160 x 3840 pixels) resolution.
Aside from the aspect ratio, the XZ2 Premium does adopt a lot of the design language and aspects of the newer Sony phones. It’s got that arched back with a fingerprint scanner placed …
Although B&H was the first US retailer to list Sony’s new flagships last month, it appears that the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are no longer available for pre-order.
The good news is Sony has just announced both phones will be launched in the United States in less than two weeks. The handset maker confirmed the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact will be available for pre-order only at Best Buy from April 13-19. Moreover, they will go on sale online on April 20, but only Best Buy will have them available.
Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact will be available in-store at Best Buy starting May …
Both Sony’s high-end smartphones, the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact went on pre-order in Europe last month, and many retailers claimed they will arrive in stock in early April. Some even offered great deals on the Xperia XZ2 where buyers would also get a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation VR headset for free.
In any case, if you haven’t placed a pre-order due to various reasons, you might be pleased to know Sony has already starting to sell the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact across Europe. In the UK, the former is available for purchase for £700, while the latter can be had for £530 outright.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is the newest in a series of Sony phones made for those who want a phone of an almost lost kind: a compact and easily pocketable one.
The XZ2 Compact is also the first “Compact” Sony with a 2:1 screen and the first with a nearly bezel-less display, so in many ways, this is Sony’s best effort in making the most out of an already small phone.
But don’t be fooled and think compact means less powerful: this mini phone runs on the latest and most powerful Snapdragon 845 system chip while also having the same 19MP camera with support for 4K HDR …
Sony has a new flagship phone, and this time it shows. It’s called the Sony Xperia XZ2, and it marks a stark shift in the company’s design philosophy, abandoning the flat, boxy appearance of its predecessors in favor of curved shapes and uninterrupted lines.
And the XZ2 isn’t just about looks. It’s also a multimedia powerhouse equipped with an 18:9 HDR display, front-facing stereo speakers, and a 19MP camera unique with its ability to shoot HDR video. Qualcomm’s fastest chip to date, the Snapdragon 845, completes this undoubtedly premium package.
But ultimately, is the Sony …
