Just yesterday, serial leakster @evleaks has shared a couple of renders of Sony’s upcoming flagship, the Xperia XZ2. As revealed earlier, the Xperia XZ2/XZ2 Compact will feature a “Full Display” 18:9 screen and a new design that has a curved back. If you want to see more, he has just tweeted the full colour options for both models.
From the renders, the larger Xperia XZ2 with a 5.7″ display will come in 4 colours. Apart from the standard Black and White, the two colour options appear to be Bleen (Blue + Green?) and Purple. The fingerprint sensor, rear 19MP main camera, LaserAF and flash are aligned vertically at the back. It uses glass for the rear and for the first time on a Sony smartphone, it supports wireless charging.
Meanwhile, the Xperia XZ2 Compact gets a smaller 5.0″ display and it has a similar design as the bigger brother. For the rear panel, it uses poly-carbonate instead of glass and there are some minor tweaks with the placement of its camera AF sensors. The colours are slightly different as it comes with a different shade of green, blue and pink.
Both Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are expected to run with Qualcomm’s top of the line Snapdragon 845 processor and it will feature Sony’s 19MP f/1.8 camera which is capable of 4K HDR videos and super slow motion. The batteries are slightly larger now with the XZ2 having a 3,180mAh capacity, while the compact version is getting a 2,870mAh unit. As a comparison, the current Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact are fitted with a smaller 2,700mAh battery.
