(MWC 2018) Goodbye OmniBalance: Sony Announces 18:9 Display Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact

Plus a few new camera upgrades

The time has finally come, and Sony has ditched OmniBalance for a fluid 3D glass surface which follows Sony’s Kando design philosophy. The new design is said to be more comfortable to hold by hand with its curved edges. The new design makes use of metal and Gorilla Glass 5 for the best protection out there.

Aside from the design update, the Xperia XZ2 comes with new tech such as a Dynamic Vibration System for a more realistic video, audio, and gaming experience. Its cameras get an upgrade as well with having the capability to record in 4K HDR–the first in any smartphone. In addition, the Xperia XZ2 is capable of shooting at ISO 51200 for photo and ISO 12800 for video.
