Moreover, while both these devices come with flagship chip under the hood, they only sport a single camera at the back. Based on the images, the Xperia XZ2 will pack a 5.7-inch display while the Compact version will be equipped with a 5-inch display.
In the wake of an increasing rollout of nearly bezel-less, 18:9 displays by the smartphone manufacturers, Sony had stuck to the outdated bezel model till date.
Redesigned from the ground up to leave the "OmniBalance" language behind at last, the Xperia XZ2 finds enough room to accommodate front-firing "S Force" stereo speakers, as well as a company logo below all that screen real estate. With an aluminium frame the front and rear of the Xperia XZ2 will be covered with 3D glass (we assume Gorilla Glass 5 on both sides but the front at least will be Gorilla Glass 5) whereas the Xperia XZ2 Compact will come in a less-premium polycarbonate finish.
Talking about the camera capabilities; Sony is known for excelling in this department and the upcoming smartphones are unlikely to mark a shift. It will still be capable of recording in 4K HDR with super slow motion capture in FHD resolution.
It is worth mentioning that some reports in the past indicated the presence of a dual-camera module on the XZ2. This will happen in the early days of the Mobile World Congress, where the company is expected to confirm all information on these three handsets, including technical specifications, price to be charged and countries in which they will be sold. The two phones will have reduced bezels on top and bottom, and will run Android 8.0 Oreo.
