Most high-end smartphones these days come equipped with dual-cameras and in many cases the cameras are built around Sony image sensors. An yet, Sony's own Xperia range had no dual-camera models to speak of... until now. At the Mobile World Congress, the Japanese manufacturer displayed a demo model of a high-sensitivity dual-camera setup, and this technology will soon be available in a production model announced today: the Sony Xperia XZ Premium.

Sony's new top-range device combines two 1/2.3" sensors in its camera—a 3-layer stacked 19MP RGB unit, and a 12MP monochrome imager. Image data from both chips is merged by the AUBE Fusion image signal processor in order to optimize dynamic range, noise and detail. Sony claims outstanding low-light performance with a maximum ISO value of 51200.

Like Huawei's high-end phones, the Sony offers a native black-and-white mode, and a background-blurring bokeh-effect is available as well. The 7-element G lenses come with F1.8 and F1.6 apertures respectively. On the video side of things, the Xperia XZ2 is capable of recording HDR footage at 4K resolution, and offers the same Motion Eye 1080p/960fps slow-motion mode as the standard Xperia XZ2.

All non-camera specifications are worthy of a flagship smartphone, as well. The Android Oreo OS will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB of RAM. And the 5.8-inch TRILUMINOS display offers a 2160 x 3840 pixel resolution and is covered by 2.5D Gorilla Glass.

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium will be available starting this summer in Chrome Black or Chrome Silver. Pricing is yet to be announced. More details on the Xperia XZ2 and its dual camera are available on the Sony website.
