The Sony Xperia XZ2 has dropped its spec sheet. Sony could release three versions of its smartphone in 2018.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 range should come in several versions like the XZ1 .The data sheet for a new model has been located on the Reddit network. It has been identified by the code name H8216. Sony Xperia XZ2 price is 50,000/ RS.
An Snapdragon 845 in the next Xperia XZ?
The two photos posted on Reddit reveal almost all the features of Sony’s next flagship but, above all, the processor. It would be a Snapdragon 845, the newest addition to Qualcomm. If this were the case it could be that this time, Samsung did not succeed (or tried) to obtain the exclusivity of this new model at its launch as was the case for the Snapdragon 835 and Galaxy S8 early 2017 .
Sony would propose a smartphone capable of being competitive against its main competitors, especially that the processor would be supported by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage memory expandable by MicroSD and which would run directly Android Oreo 8.1. At least to believe the leaked that, we repeat, may well prove to be false.
Xperia XZ2 – the technical data sheet
As we have seen previously, Sony will radically change the appearance of its smartphones in 2018.
The smartphone weighs 156 g and it measures 148 x 73.4 x 7.4 mm. The dimensions are almost identical to those of the XZ1.
On the other hand, the screen is bigger. We can therefore deduce that the edges will be much thinner without the guarantee of a completely borderless screen.
The diagonal of the Xperia XZ2 is 5.48 inches against 5.2 inches for the XZ1. The resolution of the Triliminos slab is 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor. It will be accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
Xperia XZ2 – a mixture of strange feature
On the photo side, the Xperia XZ2 will be equipped with a 12MP main dual sensor and a 15MP front camera with an f / 2.0 aperture.
The smartphone will have a battery of 3130 mAh. It will be Quick Charge compatible.
The document also mentions a dual SIM card. The smartphone will run Android Oreo 8.1. If the whole data sheet is consistent, one of the points listed is amazing.
This Xperia XZ2 model would ship a microUSB plug. In 2018, it is hard to see a manufacturer do not opt for a USB-C port.
Meanwhile, a 3D rendering of what could be a premium Xperia XZ2 was discovered by the site Techiestate . The screen occupies about 90% of the front surface of the smartphone.
Sony should logically unveil its Xperia XZ2 at the MWC 2018.
Sony Xperia XZ2: its technical sheet
According to PlayFulDroid, which relays an image shared by Slashleaks , the terminals H8216 and H8266 are probably the successors of the Xperia XZ1. We note that the data sheet is particularly attractive and resolutely upscale. It is clear that Sony wants to equip its next flagships with the best. We take stock of the characteristics mentioned on the image.

Particularly important information is missing, the camera. The latest news can be expected to discover a double photo sensor. An invitation is sent to the specialized press however no product is mentioned. For its part, Sony has already started a small teasing campaign by unveiling a rendering of the new design of Xperia 2018 . As usual, the tweezers are de rigueur pending official confirmation from the manufacturer.
