With XZ2 Premium, you can also film like a pro using 4K HDR Movie recording and play it back in the palm of your hand on the 4K HDR display, showcasing your favorite moments in crystal-clear detail and eye-popping color and contrast. The dual lens system will also enable the popular bokeh effect for photos shot with Sony's camera, however, it will be made available sometime after launch in Q3 this year.

That, Sony promises, is the sort of sensitivity that until now would have required an interchangeable-lens camera.

Motion Eye Dual combines a black and white sensor with a color sensor. However, while the sensor is capable of recording 4K HDR videos, it's not clear yet if the main sensor is capable of recording at 60fps.

On the front, there is a 13MP camera with f/2.0 aperture which is a big step up from 5MP front camera of the XZ2.

TechRadar spoke to Sony, who confirmed that the phone may not be available in the UAE, Saudi and the rest of the Middle East - although it's yet to rule out its arrival completely.

He said the investigations had been completed by the state Crime Branch and a charge sheet had been presented in the court. The girl was kidnapped on January 10 and her body was found on January 17.

Coming to the specifications now, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has a 5.8-inch 4K (2160 x 3840) HDR display with 16:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 5. For a more immersive video playback, it also gets S-Force surround sound and a Dynamic Vibration System that vibrates like Sony PlayStation's "DualShock" controllers. There's also 6GB of RAM (up from the XZ2's 4GB), a 3540mAh battery and aptX HD Bluetooth support. Xperia XZ2 Premium creates a cinema-like audio quality when you're sharing your favorite videos with your friends thanks to its powerful front-facing stereo speakers.

Also like the XZ2 is the design.

While the Xperia XZ2 Premium looks near identical to the original Xperia XZ2 with its 3D glass design, it improves on its barely-aged predecessor with upgrades in the camera, display and battery departments.

Although for a while it seemed like the smartphone camera space had peaked, 2018 has had more than a couple of surprises for those looking to replace their dedicated camera. Even with "just" two sensors, though, Sony's Motion Eye Dual technology could well make it the low-light king. As seen with the other Xperia XZ2 smartphones, the new Xperia XZ2 Premium also ditches the omnibalance design.

Sony unveiled its flagship Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact handsets during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) technology tradeshow, which was held in late February. Pricing will be detailed closer to the launch.
