Sony’s Snapdragon 845 Flagship From Last Year With 4K HDR Camera Now Costs Just $299
With last year’s flagships getting attractive price cuts, the Sony Xperia XZ2 isn’t an exception. At B&H, the 5.7-inch device powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 gets a 40 percent discount at the online store, bringing its price down to an attractive $299. Seeing as how a lot of current-generation flagships sporting Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 cannot be purchased for less than $600 at least, it makes the Xperia XZ2 deal all the more coveting.
The smartphone also sports an 18:9 aspect ratio, with the display supporting HDR content, and apart from the Snapdragon 845, it is paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. At the back, you have a 19MP 4K HDR camera, while the front side houses a 5MP shooter. The 3180mAh battery is sufficient to get you through the day, but your usage and endurance will vary. Thankfully, the Snapdragon 845-fueled flagship from 2018 support Qi wireless charging, along with 18-watt charging if you do it the conventional way.
“The XZ2 not only displays HDR content, but it gives you the tools to make your own. With the rear 19MP Motion Eye camera, you can take stunning 4K HDR movies, and snap hi-res HDR photos. Motion Eye can slow down the action for fun and dramatic super slow-motion movies, at 960 fps in HD or Full HD resolutions. It can also shoot in standard 120 fps slow-motion, with the option to easily switch between the two.”
Since this is an unlocked variant of the Xperia XZ2, it is only compatible with AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s 4G networks. Other than that, you have to remember to make your purchase quickly because, at the time of writing, customers only have a little over seven hours to avail this discount.
So what do you think? A Snapdragon 845-powered Xperia XZ2 with decent all-round specifications and a rear-mounted 4K HDR camera for $300? Sounds like a great deal to us.
