Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact: Sony abandons Omnibalance
As we say, together with the filtration of the possible technical characteristics of these Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact, some images come to us, in which it is clear that Sony would abandon its characteristic design (known as Omnibalance) with prominent frames above and below the screen. Although it is undoubtedly a design that is absolutely contrary to the current aesthetic canons in the high ranges, the truth is that it is a hallmark of the Japanese manufacturer, which shows its own personality compared to the “all screen” of the competition. to which it begins to be difficult to distinguish, given their enormous resemblance.
As can be seen in the image on these lines, the screen now uses the front much better. However, the frames above and below the panel are still significant, as long as the company logo (on the bottom) can fit all the sensors, the front camera and the headset for calls (on the top). In addition, there is also a more rounded finish on all the edges of the device, especially if we compare them with those of the Sony Xperia XZ1. For the rest, it seems that both the front and the back would be made of glass. There is, yes, an important detail: in the front we would have two stereo speakers.
At the back, the presence of the fingerprint sensor and the main camera stand out. Yes, the new Sony Xperia XZ2 they would not have double cameras.
Technical characteristics of the Sony Xperia XZ2 and Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact
Of course, we must warn that we are talking about leaked data and in no case confirmed by Sony. Therefore, we must take them with caution, despite the fact that Evan Blass is usually very well informed.
In the screens, we would find LCD panels of 5.7 inches for the Sony Xperia XZ2 and 5 inches for the Compact model (hence the name, we assume), in both cases with resolution Full HD. On the other hand, if the information is true, both the Sony Xperia XZ2 and the XZ2 Compact would mount a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Or, what is the same, the processor that we will probably see in the entire high-end of 2018 (and that will also arrive, for example, with the Galaxy S9). They have not transcended, yes, neither the amount of RAM nor the available storage.
The camera The Xperia XZ2, meanwhile, would be 19 megapixels, with a focal aperture f / 1.8. According to the information, it would be ready to record video in 4K HDR and would be able to record in super slow motion with 1080p resolution. However, the characteristics of the Compact model camera are not known, but the filtration shows that they would not be the same. For the rest, the XZ2 would have a 3,180 mAh battery (which would be compatible with wireless charging), while the XZ Compact would stay at 2,870 mAh (and would not support wireless charging).
As we say, in less than three days it will be Sony itself who confirms or denies this data, in its presentation at MWC on Monday.
