The build quality is the same as the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has the same 3D glass on the rear and aluminum frame as the XZ2. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!

The power button and volume rockers are present on the sides along with the dedicated camera shutter key that we have seen on nearly every Sony phone launched previously. The regular XZ2 has an 18:9 display.

Being a flagship smartphone, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium, like the Xperia XZ2, comes with Snapdragon 845 SoC under the hood. It measures 158x80x11.9mm and weighs 236 grams.

There might not be a headphone jack added to the smartphone, but at least you are getting a USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio jack adapter in the packaging. There is also Qi wireless charging on board.

Perhaps in the hope that it can topple the Samsung Galaxy S9, Sony has given the XZ2 Premium a 4K 5.8-inch screen, which improves on the 5.7-inch Full HD+ (1080 x 2160) display you'll find on the original XZ2.

There's 64GB storage as standard in both models, with support for microSD expansion. However, it does come with some improvements over the XZ2, like more RAM, more cameras, bigger display with higher resolution, and of course, bigger battery.

Are you gutted the United Kingdom won't be getting the Xperia XZ2 Premium? This is a 12-megapixel sensor with 1.55µm pixels and paired with an f/1.6 lens.

While most people will instantly assume smartphone camera sensors that can reach that high ISO sensitivity will generate a lot of noise in low light, Sony is reassuring that pictures will look just as good with it's "AUBE fusion image signal processor", which is responsible for combining the data of both sensors, optimize for low light and keeping noise levels at a minimal level, the company is also bold enough to claim that this low light performance is only seen on interchangeable lens cameras. "For the front, there is a 13-megapixel 1/ 3,06" Exmor RS sensor with 22mm wide angle lens and f/2.0 aperture. It is also IP68 water-resistant, which was also expected from a high-end Sony mobile phone. Sony's phones are also known for the impressive audio output, and the XZ2 Premium is no exception.

The device also boasts S-Front front surround stereo speakers, which is termed as loudest Xperia speakers ever.

It doesn't look like (according to our sources) the XZ2 Premium will be coming to the United Kingdom, despite Sony's promise that it will be available "globally" in summer 2018 when it ships with Android 8.0 Oreo. The phone is available in either Chrome Silver or Chrome Black and is already IP65-IP68iv certified, as well as, powered by Android 8.0 Oreo.
