It has been a long time since any of the smartphones from Sony went through a complete redesign. All their smartphones look quite identical but things are expected to change with the upcoming Sony Xperia XZ2. To find out what to expect from this new Sony flagship and the Sony Xperia XZ2 South Africa price, keep reading.
Sony is already late to join the near bezel-less display phone trend and looks like they are in no rush to join either. The Sony Xperia XZ2 comes with slightly less bezels but the upper and lower bezels on the phone are still quite fat and it comes with a 76.1% screen-to-body ratio. There are some notable changes on the back side as it’s not the same old boring flat design anymore. The back side is slightly curved and feels nice in the hand. Both the front and back side is covered with Gorilla Glass 5 and this design definitely stands out compared to it’s predecessors. This new flagship will show up with a big 5.7-inch screen showing 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution in 18:9 aspect ratio and 424ppi of pixel density. According to Sony, users will be able to watch standard SDR videos in HDR thanks to Sony’s XReality engine. This phone will do this conversion on the go which is definitely a nice feature to have. We will be able to find out more about this feature after the Sony Xperia XZ2 release date South Africa.
While all the phones out there are switching to dual cameras, Sony is sticking with the old single 19-megapixel camera on the back like the Sony Xperia XZ Premium. It’s the same camera megapixel-wise but there are some changes in features as this camera is capable of capturing super slow-motion 960fps videos at 1080p resolution instead of 720p which is what we get in the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus. The front camera in this one is a 5-megapixel one and both the front and rear camera comes with gyro EIS. We will be able to find out how this camera works in real life after the Sony Xperia XZ2 release date South Africa. There is also the Google Pixel 2 XL you can check out which is popular for it’s camera at the moment.
Like all the upcoming high-end phones, the Sony Xperia XZ2 will be packing the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor paired with 4GB of RAM. There will be 64GB built-in storage and it can be expanded as well using the microSD card slot (SIM 2 slot). This phone dropped the standard 3.5mm headphone jack like some of the other latest phones which is surprising as some of their phones offered hi-fi audio support. Other notable features include: USB 3.1 port, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, stereo speakers, 3180mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery and Quick Charge 3.0 support. For those of you who are in the market for a phone with giant battery, there is the Xiaomi Mi Max 2. This one is quite cheap compared to the Sony Xperia XZ2 South Africa price and will definitely last longer even if you are a heavy user.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 will be quite expensive and will cost around R 12200 when it’s here. The Sony Xperia XZ2 release date South Africa is expected sometimes in April, 2018.
