A new update has started rolling out for the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium, Sony’s current flagship smartphone. This new update brings some security-related improvements, but the main focus is on the camera, as you’ll be getting some new camera features and improvements with this update. This update brings the bokeh mode to the Xperia XZ2 Premium’s camera, which you can access by hitting the function key (below the shutter button). On top of that, you’ll also be getting a new monochrome effect, which you can also apply to your video content, not just your images.
On top of those camera improvements, Sony is also rolling out August security patch for Android with this update. This update seems to be rolling out to unlocked variants of the Xperia XZ2 Premium as we speak, but it’s a staged rollout, which means it may not be available to everyone this very second, it may take days, or even over a week to reach all unlocked Xperia XZ2 Premium units. You can always navigate to settings, and try checking if the update is available manually, but the phone will let you know once it becomes available. The Xperia XZ2 Premium was announced back in April this year, but it was not made available until July. The Xperia XZ2 Premium does pack in top-of-the-line specs, and it resembles the Xperia XZ2 in terms of the design. It is worth noting that the Xperia XZ3 is on its way, and the XZ3 Premium along with it, probably, but neither of those phones will represent a huge jump in design or specs over the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Premium.
The Xperia XZ2 Premium is made out of metal and glass, and it sports two cameras on the back. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core processor, while it features a 5.8-inch QHD (3840 x 2160) display. Android 8.0 Oreo comes pre-installed on the phone, with Sony’s skin on top of it, while the device packs in 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A 3,540mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging. If you’d like to know more about the Xperia XZ2 Premium, follow this link.
