SONY could trump every other phone maker on the market when it comes to cameras – at least in terms of image size. The Japanese tech giant's highly anticipated Sony Xperia XZ4 is tipped to boast an enormous 52-megapixel snapper when it launches later this month. Apple and Samsung are expecting a major new Sony smartphone to arrive during the annual MWC 2019 tech show in Barcelona in late February. This handset is supposedly going to feature a large 6.5-inch screen and Qualcomm's powerful new Snapdragon 855 chipset. But a new report from Japanese tech site Sumahoinfo claims that the phone will also come equipped with a 52-megapixel camera. This trumps the iPhone XS (12 megapixels), Samsung Galaxy S9 (12 megapixels), and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro (40 megapixels). However, it's worth noting that megapixel count a phone camera offers doesn't actually mean you're getting a better picture. Megapixels refers to the number of pixels – the tiny dots of colour and light – … [Read more...] about Sony Xperia XZ4 could have HUGE 52-megapixel camera that beats every other phone

SONY is finally selling its flagship Xperia XZ2 Premium smartphone in the UK. The handset was first announced back in April, but is about to go on sale to Brit gadget fans. The big advantage with Sony's latest model is its top-notch camera. Sony has the advantage of owning its own camera division, so it has great photography chops. That's why the new Xperia XZ2 Premium comes fitted with a seriously powerful dual-lens camera on the back. The headline perk is its ability to capture images and video in super low-light conditions. This particular model has the world's highest ISO sensitivity for video recording in a smartphone – at ISO 12800. ISO sensitivity determines how well a sensor can capture images in poorly-lit conditions. As such, it can record high-quality, well-lit footage even when you're in a dark environment. One of the cameras shoots in black and white, and the other in colour, and these images are merged to create high-quality shots. Sony claims that the camera can … [Read more...] about Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium smartphone now on sale in UK – with camera that sees ‘BEYOND human eye’
SONY is back with a brand new smartphone to take down Apple and Samsung: the Sony Xperia XZ2. It's introducing a brand new design style, some top-end hardware, and a seriously cool camera – and we've had a chance to test it. If you're familiar with Sony Xperia phones, you'll know they've always had hulking great bezels – that's the bit of border surrounding your screen. To keep up with the new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Apple's iPhone X, the Xperia XZ2 bezel has been slimmed right down. It's also completely symmetrical, with the camera now shifted to the middle of the phone. Glass on the front and back, paired with an aluminium frame make this one seriously pretty handset. The screen measures a generous 5.7 inches, which is only marginally smaller than Samsung's latest blower. It's got a Full HD resolution display too – which is what you'd expect from most living room televisions – so visuals aren't an issue. Better still, it runs on the powerful new Snapdragon 845 … [Read more...] about Sony Xperia XZ2 review – is this the Samsung killer you’ve been waiting for?
TIRED of hulking smartphones that you can't wrap your fingers around? Sony's new blower – the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact – could be your perfect pick. The Japanese phone maker has released a relatively dinky 5-inch phone with all the top specs you'd expect from a flagship device. Smartphones are getting much bigger these days, and if you're looking for a high-end phone, it can be hard to find one with a small screen. Sony is one of the few phone makers that realises not everyone wants a great big handset, and the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is a great option for those people. It's powered by the seriously nippy Snapdragon 845 chip, which is one of this year's fastest mobile processors. So even though the phone's size is scaling down, you're not giving up any computing horsepower. The display has a Full HD resolution, so it's got as many pixels as a common living room television. That equals incredible sharpness on the smaller screen. In terms of design, Sony is offering a new … [Read more...] about Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact review – is Sony’s down-sized blower any good?
