After launching the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact smartphones in February, Sony is following up with a high-end model called the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium.

It has more RAM, a bigger battery, and a higher-resolution display. But the phone’s main claim to fame may be the dual rear camera system that Sony says allows for photography in extremely low-light conditions.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has dual rear cameras, with a 19MP Sony Motion Eye Exmor RS camera paired with a 12MP black and white camera for capturing high-contrast photos.

Sony says the result is support for up to ISO 51200 in still photography and ISO 12800 for video.

The system also supports recording 4K HDR videos, slow-motion video at up to 960 frames per second at 720p or 1080p resolutions, and portrait-style photos with a bokeh/blurred background effect.

The phone also has a 13MP front-facing camera with a low-light sensor and support for using the phone’s display as a flash.

Here’s a run-down of the phone’s other key specs:

  • 5.8 inch, 3840 x 2160 pixel HDR Triluminos display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor
  • 6GB RAM
  • 64GB storage
  • microSDXC card slot for up to 400GB of removable storage
  • Android 8.x Oreo
  • IP68 water resistance
  • 3,540 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and Qi wireless charging support
  • USB 3.1 Type-C
  • 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC
  • 6.2″ x 3.1 x 0.5″
  • 8.3 ounces
  • black or silver color options

The phone does not have a dedicated audio jack, but it comes with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm audio adapter, and the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium has stereo speakers.

Sony hasn’t announced the phone’s price yet, but it should be available around the world starting this summer.
