Sony Xperia XZ2 and Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact specs revealed

Sony Xperia XZ2 and Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact specs revealed

Starting off with the flagship range, Swedish blog SweDroid claims that the Xperia XZ2 will sport a 5.7-inch 18:9 aspect ratio display. The Xperia XZ2 is built with a fingerprint sensor, Proximity sensor and Light Sensor technique. Now, more information has been revealed about the company's forthcoming lineup, including a full list of specs and even a prototype image of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact. Likewise, it is also not certain if the particular Sony smartphone with FCC ID PY7-00718V will be the regular Xperia XZ2 or the Xperia XZ2 Compact. Three upcoming Sony Xperia mid-range phones have also been spotted on Geekbench, with most internals listed in the database entry.

We already know that Sony will be at MWC 2018 and a recent teaser has confirmed that Sony will have a new phone that they will be unveiling. The screen will protect by durable Scratch Resistant glass. Thanks to slim bezels, the XZ2 Compact will be a similar size to previous-generation 4.6in Compact handsets, according to the website. The word on the street is that the Japanese tech giant may launch the Xperia XZ2, successor to the Xperia XZ1. Be that as it may, the user who posted the pictures on the internet guarantees that the Xperia XZ2 Compact does not come with a 3.5mm audio jack.

Crude oil futures slip 0.42 pc on profit-booking
Oil is struggling to regain the highs of January after a sell-off in global equities seeped into crude markets earlier this month. WTI was at a premium of 36 cents a barrel to the Dubai oil yesterday, compared with an average discount of about US$2 over 2017.

Interestingly, the report mentions that the Xperia XZ2 will use a vibration motor for playing music and audio, but it's unclear how it'll work in practice.

Both phones will apparently arrive powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The Xperia XZ2 is obviously a tad pricier at SEK 7,990 (or approximately Rs. 63,950).
