Sony Launches the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact

Sony Mobile just recently announced two new smartphones during the Mobile World Congress, the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact.

“If entertainment is your priority, then our new Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are your smartphones”, said Hideyuki Furumi, Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Sony Mobile Communications, “From what’s inside — world-class technology, to a new sleek, sophisticated design, these smartphones are everything you need and probably a lot more. We have pushed Sony’s boundaries even further with our new products for movie recording, viewing, and music listening – offering entertainment to the extreme.”

The new Xperias has a fresh new design. It has a curve back, rather than the boxy design of its predecessor. It has smaller bezels, which is a trend in smartphone design since late last year. And Sony also decided to not include the headphone jack.

Sony’s new flagship, the XZ2, has an extended 5.7-inch HDR Full HD 19:9 display where you can immerse yourself in your favorite movies and content. It also has a Dynamic Vibration System that analyses the audio and vibrates, letting you feel the action in your hands, bringing your videos and games to life. The device is also the world’s first 4K HDR Movie Recording in a smartphone. It is also capable of shooting 960 fps videos at 1080p.
