Other improvements over the Xperia XZ2 launched last month in the United Kingdom include a bump-up to 6GB of RAM, and a greater battery capacity, 3,540mAh compared to 3,180mAh.

JAPANESE PHONE MAKER Sony has shown off the Xperia XZ2 Premium, a souped-up version of its two-month-old flagship.

The reference to "widespread ranging" is also a bit mysterious - does that mean that if you really want an Xperia XZ2 Premium in the United Kingdom that you'll be able to order one from, say, the Sony website?

While the Xperia XZ2 Premium looks near identical to the original Xperia XZ2 with its 3D glass design, it improves on its barely-aged predecessor with upgrades in the camera, display and battery departments. The rear camera also supports 4K HDR video recording and 960fps Super slow motion recording in HD or Full HD.

What the Xperia XZ2 Premium does not have is a 3.5 mm audio jack, since the Japanese company made a decision to follow the trend of Apple, Google, and HTC devices.

"Immersive viewing Xperia XZ2 Premium has the ultimate display with a huge 5.8" 4K HDR (that's 11% larger and 30% brighter than our previous 4K HDR display), so you can immerse yourself in your favorite movies and content in crystal-clear detail and eye-popping color.

Other specs and features of the smartphone include 6GB RAM, 3540mAh battery with Smart Stamina and STAMINA mode, Qnovo Adaptive Charging technology, 5.8-inch 4K HDR screen, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

For selfies, the device features a 13MP sensor on the front with f/2.0 aperture. Most of you are aware of the fact that the ISO measures the sensitivity of the sensor. The primary rear camera is a 12MP F/1.6 that works in unison with a 19MP camera with a F/1.8 aperture. It's IP65/IP68 water and dust resistant, too. It runs on Android 8.0 Oreo flavor out of the box and the latest Android 8.1 update is expected to be rolled out soon.

TechRadar spoke to Sony, who confirmed that the phone may not be available in the UAE, Saudi and the rest of the Middle East - although it's yet to rule out its arrival completely. It features High-Resolution Audio (LPCM, FLAC, ALAC, DSD), DSEE HX, LDAC, Clear Audio+, Stereo speakers with S-Force Front Surround, Stereo Recording, Qualcomm® aptX™ HD audio, Automatic Headphone Optimisation and more.

The XZ2 Premium will be available from the middle of the year in Chrome Black and Chrome Silver. What are your opinions on the design and the specs? Pricing hasn't been announced, but don't expect it to be cheap. Tell us down in the comments.
