We will get a better idea about this phone's specifications when we get into specific details.

This device is powered by a great 2800 megahertz Octa-Core processor, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 chip and a huge 6 GB of RAM memory. A good advantage of this device is the 64 GB huge internal memory and an SD memory slot, which allows the user to install hundreds of applications without having to worry about filling it.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is for sale in 16 777 216 color. Even though this phone is only 6.22 inches long, it is still able to fit a a 5.8 inches screen. This phone construction combines Glass and Aluminum . Apparently Sony forgot about weight optimization in this 8.32 oz cellphone.

Sony packed this phone with an awesome 5.8" screen, and a 2160 x 3840 (4K) resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels in the screen.

This phone has two cameras, a 19 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 13 mega-pixels front facing camera. this cellphone's back facing camera has an aperture of F1.8 so it can take clear pictures even in low-light situations.

This phone counts with an incredible 3540 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep this phone running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it at all.
