Following the rumors and leaks that we’ve been hearing, it looks like the Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact have been officially announced. These are Sony’s latest Android smartphones and for the most part, they are identical in many ways, but as their name suggests, one will be bigger and the other more “compact”.
With the Xperia XZ2, we’re looking at a phone with a 5.7-inch FHD+ HDR display with a display aspect ratio of 18:9. For the Xperia XZ2 Compact, it will feature a smaller 5-inch screen with a FHD+ resolution and HDR, also with an 18:9 display aspect ratio. However apart from that, both phones are more or less identical with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipsets powering either handset.
They will also come with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of flash storage, come with a 19MP rear-facing 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS sensor, a 5MP 1/5-inch Exmor RS front-facing camera, and both phones will run on Android 8.0 Oreo. Both phones are also IP65/IP68 certified and will also come with fingerprint sensors on the back.
Battery sizes will differ with the Xperia XZ2 packing a 3,180mAh battery while the Xperia XZ2 Compact will feature a 2,870mAh battery, with the former supporting wireless charging. Both phones will be available in March, but pricing has yet to be confirmed, although this will range from region to region.
