The XZ2 and XZ2 Compact will be mostly the same, albeit with a few differences. Hopefully that's the only smartphone trend Sony won't adopt. But now, the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is set to mark Sony's disassociation from the bezel phones as the company is slated to announce its fresh new flagships, namely the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact.
Venture Beat says that there will be a 19-megapixel camera on the back. That said, the Xperia XZ2 boasts a 5.7-inch display, and, the XZ2 Compact, as evident from its name, sports a smaller 5-inch display. Both the models are likely to pack full HD LCD screen protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
For better or for worse, Sony has stuck to the same phone design for years at this point. The rear of the devices will also house the fingerprint sensor.
Giving the XZ2 a premium appearance is the 3D glass surface on both sides of the aluminum frame. Usually, most manufacturers would use this display aspect ratio to fit a larger screen on a smaller device. The glossy back looks similar to HTC's U11 series and the Xperia XZ2 will come in black, silver, green, and pink.
Federal Advisory Committee Recommends FluMist for Next Flu Season
It's OK for doctors to start using a kid-friendly nasal spray flu vaccine again, a federal panel said Wednesday. AstraZeneca says it will supply FluMist to the USA market next season.
At the back, you get the same single 19MP camera with f/1.8 aperture, 4K HDR recording and super-slow motion capture as the Xperia XZ Premium, alongside a uniquely positioned fingerprint reader that will actually be functional in the United States for once.
It is worth mentioning that some reports in the past indicated the presence of a dual-camera module on the XZ2. Starting this Sunday which is when the MWC 2018 trade show will finally kick off, the company is expected to introduce its first redesigned high-end phones for 2018 and they are named the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact will have a non-scratch polycarbonate finish. It will allegedly be running Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
Other features include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, "S Force" stereo speakers and a haptic feedback system (exclusive to the XZ2). This feature will be absent on the Compact version. The XZ2 is capable of wireless charging, with a 3180 mAh battery; the XZ2 compact only supports wired charging, however, and its battery is 2870 mAh.
