The Sony Xperia XZ 2 is the hot topic right now, and the smartphone fraternity seems to be expecting a great deal from this smartphone. It is believed that the phone shall be revealed at the upcoming MWC. At present, there are a lot of contrasting reports about the phone’s specifications. So, let’s see how the phone might turn out to be and if it has the potential to become one of the best flagships from the house of SONY.
If we follow the leaked images online, we can observe that the phone has a nearly edgeless display. Also, the build quality of the phone looks fantastic too. Following the same trend as the other X-series smartphones, this smartphone too shall have a power button on of the side of the phone that will also act as a fingerprint scanner. The phone is also expected to be completely waterproof and dustproof. There are a lot of rumors as to what kind of display would be provided in the phone. At present we cannot comment as to what shall be the screen size of the device. However, it is rumored that a 4K display might be provided. The display would have various optimizations provided by Sony to balance the contrast and brightness, such as Triluminos display and X-Reality Engine. Overall, the display might turn out to be pretty impressive.
There is currently no information as to what kind of processor would be used in the phone. Then again one can easily expect to find a high-end processor on the phone, just like its predecessor. The processor would be able to play heavy games and videos without any problem. It is believed that the phone shall be shipped with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. The Android OS would be run by Sony’s custom theme. According to the online reports, the phone shall feature with 4GB of RAM, which according to us is impressive. The internal storage of the phone is expected to be 32/64/128GB, and the internal storage can be expanded up to 256GB using the microSD card slot provided in the phone. The phone is expected to allow single SIM support and will support 4G networks.
There has been a lot of rumors as to what kind of cameras would be provided in the upcoming phone; however, there is nothing concrete as of now. The phone’s predecessors are featured with a 23-megapixel rear camera and a 13-megapixel front camera. So it raises the question if the company would increase the specs or keep it same and provide better sensors. Just like its predecessor, the rear camera would be supported by EIS (gyro), phase detection and laser autofocus and LED flash. HD Video recording could be done by the camera. Shooting Modes include Continuous Shooting and High Dynamic Range mode (HDR). The Camera Features include Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus. The previous phone was able to capture highly detailed photographs, and we believe that this phone would capture amazing images too. Loudspeaker shall be provided in the phone and so would be a 3.5mm audio jack with active noise cancellation, and dedicated mic would be provided in the phone.
There is no information as to what kind of battery would be provided in the upcoming phone. However, one can surely expect to find a higher capacity battery in the phone compared to the 2900mAh battery provided in its predecessor. Be whatever the case, the battery would be able to work through a complete day with moderate to heavy usage. One can easily expect the battery to support fast charging, as the phone’s predecessor supported Quick Charge 3.0. Connectivity options shall include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/nac, Wi-Fi Direct, dual-band, DLNA, Hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.2, aptX, LE, A-GPS, GLONASS/ BDS (region dependent), NFC, A2DP, USB version 2.0, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector and USB Host. The phone shall have a lot of sensors such as Fingerprint (side-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, barometer, compass and color spectrum.
