This phone is offerred in a lot of color options like black, green, pink and silver. The Sony Xperia XZ2 isn't very light comparing with today standards, with a weight of 6.98 ounces. This device is just 6.02 inches long, but it is still able to fit a a 5.7 inches display. Although this phone is very slim it's not so slim as many other cellphones in the market, with a thickness of 0.44 inches. This device body design is a combination of Glass and Aluminum .

This cellphone is equipped with an absolutely amazing 1080 x 2160 5.7-inches screen, which makes everything look amazing.

Sony decided to equip this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 chip, holding a high-tech 2.8 GHz Octa-Core processor with a huge 4 GB of RAM memory. This cellphone counts with a 64 GB excellent internal storage memory and a slot for external memory cards, which allows the user to install hundreds of applications without worrying about how much storage is left.

This cellphone includes wi-fi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) super fast data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (which is a bit slower 4G variation) and fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies.

This cellphone also captures 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) at 960 fps (32 times slower than reality). This device also includes time lapse video.

This phone packs a large 3180 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that provides this device an incredible battery duration.
