Sony had introduced the Xperia XZ2 smartphone today, along with the Xperia XZ2 Compact, and we’re here to take a closer look at the Xperia XZ2’s spec sheet. This is the company’s new flagship smartphone, well, one of two flagship smartphones, that is.

The phone’s corners are not as sharp as they were in the company’s previous phones, as Sony is now using a new design language called ‘Ambient Flow’, which is inspired by water, according to the company.
