Sony announce imminent launch pricing for Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact smartphones

Sony have announced that the new Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact smartphone are available for purchase from today.

“If entertainment is your priority, then our new Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are your smartphones,” said John Featherstone, Managing Director of Oceania, Sony Mobile Communications.

Announced at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Xperia XZ2 is equipped with an extended 5.7-inch HDR FHD+ display with a 18:9 aspect ratio and the same powerful Motion Eye camera found in last year’s XZ Premium. It also boasts the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, support for filming 4K HDR video content and comes equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The key callout here is a new feature called Dynamic Vibration. Inspired by the DualShock vibration found in Sony's Playstation controllers, the phone will map out the bassline in video content and vibrate along with it. Sony say this feature, along with the 5.7-inch Full HD+ HDR display, allows the Xperia XZ2 to offer a more immersive entertainment that competing smartphones.

Then, the XZ2 Compact drops the Dynamic Vibration and shrinks the screen-size down to 5-inches. It also features a smaller battery. Otherwise, it offers up more-or-less the same combination of specs when comes to camera, display, storage, memory and processing power.

In Australia, The Sony Xperia XZ2 is priced at an RRP of $1099 and available through Kogan, JB HI-Fi, Amaysim's online tech store and through Sony Kiosks and Sony's online storefront. It will also be coming to Telstra at a later date.

Meanwhile, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is priced at $949 and is available through Kogan, Amaysim and Sony direct.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
