Sony Xperia XZ2


Its was now standard for Sony to drop a number of flagship SmartPhones at a go, as we already know that two were released in 2017, suffice to say that Sony released not 2 but 3 Mobiles in 2018 as part of the Xperia XZ2 series of devices, the three handsets unleashed were the Xperia XZ2, XZ2 Compact that were announced in February 2018, and then over a month later, the XZ2 Premium came out in April. 

Sony Xperia XZ2


Released 2018, April

Sony has not stood still in terms of new designs in innovation, ergonomics and aesthetics.  Sony made a big move with the Xperia XZ2 series, that move was a change in the design, feel and look for Sony featuring thinner bezels than their predecessors the XZ1s, more or less taking their cue from other Mobile manufacturers, they decided to curve them up quite a bit at the edges and corners. In a nut shell less square and boxy like the previous Smartphones.
