Sony has quietly launched the Xperia XZ2 Premium smartphone, which boasts a dual camera setup that can record still images at up to ISO 51,200 and record video at up to ISO 12,800.
The Xperia XZ2 Premium follows the Xperia XZ2, which was announced earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress, and features a revamped camera.
Sony’s first dual-camera smartphone, the Xperia XZ2 Premium employs a 19-megapixel colour lens and a 12-megapixel monochrome sensor.
While one would rightly assume that images or videos shot at such a high sensitivity would be very noise, Sony says Xperia XZ2 Premium also uses an ‘AUBE fusion image signal processor’ that helps reduce noise and preserve detail.
Other features include a Bokeh Mode for shooting portraits and the option to record super slow-motion video with a 960fps at 1080p movie mode.
The Xperia XZ2 Premium also offers a new 5.8-inch 4K HDR display, 6GB RAM and a 13-megapixel front ‘selfie’ camera.
The new Sony smartphone is due for release this summer; however, as Trusted Reviews reports, it doesn’t look like the Xperia XZ2 Premium will be released at all in the UK or Ireland.
