Of course you'll be impressed with the XZ2, its way more compact than your previous phones plus its a flagship so yes, enjoy.

Assuming the XZ2 Premium has the best camera in the market, you still have the same complaints so either you convince the masses its fine to be thick and have bezels or you make the change. Its one or the other like Arsene Wenger leaving Arsenal, you have to make the decision.

Thanks for the memories Arsene. Happy Arsenal fan here. If I hadn't bought XZP in November I would be all in for XZ2 or XZ2P

Did any reviewers get any sort of unit to unbox or do hands-on with this device?

Checking the usual Android Authoirty, Android Central, Mr.Mobile, Android Police, TechRadar, GadgetMatch, The Verge, GSM Arena, PhoneArena, etc etc... yields nothing.

Weird.

Any word on launch e.g. in the UK or US?

I start to believe Sony don't believe in their products or care too much for them, except from Playstation.
It seems there hasn't been a single XZ2 Premium sent out for review or even preview.
They only seem to do this kind of BS announcement to keep their shareholders happy.

Sony try to cut way too many corners. It goes for the television department as well.
I own the X930E TV. It is an impressive set with shitty SoC that makes the ui experience f'ed up slow at times. The remote controller is the same one I had with the previous TV from four years ago. Uninspired and outdated in terms of look; almost like their phones.
Even with updates, there just seem to be little to no interests in getting it right. For anyone with high-end TV from Sony, know what kind of fiasco update I'm thinking of.

When the product will be ready they will get it. As easy as that.

The problem with this announcement is that nobody got a hands on demo to at the very least take some photos with the dual camera therefore, there is nothing to talk about and no hype to generate. Had they given 5 or 10 journalists some time with it you would easily get something circulating online: 'While the software was far from complete, the XZ2P camera is a significant upgrade on the already very capable XZ2. We can't wait to get our hands on the finished product'. A very small statement like that would make a big difference, its not like the XZ2P can sell itself like Infinity War which people have been waiting 2/3 years for.

So they announced a product that was not even ready to be demoed by journalists. Very strange.

This reminds me of the Idou/Satio.

news for some in asia.
there will be new colors of xperia xz2 and xz2 premium (not sure about XZ2C) for some asian market such as taiwan, japan (ntt and kddi).

don't know specific color, but for japan, each phone carrier seems to be releasing its own color exclusively.

I was thinking is Sony doing this (minimize the marketing and the buzz ) on deliberate so as to save the best for the upcoming true "mirai" and broadcast and surprise the world (which they are always good at ,less the marketing )

I was just thinking , Could they be delaying to get the software All working correct, 'bokeh, 'portrait' 'b&w' high iso and balance etc etc cause I'm wanting to change up now to Sony again (the Xiaomi redmi 5 plus has been a good temp phone but the Sony and Sony ui i miss dearly,
The sooner the xz2p comes out the better though I am trying to hold until September
