Sony Mobile has just released a new promotional video for its current flagship smartphone, the Sony Xperia XZ2. The one minute and 11 seconds long video exhibit the power of Xperia XZ2 while recording video in extremely low light conditions. If you are unaware, Sony has packed a new high ISO video recording feature in the XZ2 which allows the smartphone to record videos at an impressive ISO12800. This means that the device can record at a higher ISO setting than any other smartphone in the industry.
One can see a number of different scenes shot during night time to check the quality of the video and how well the Sony Xperia XZ2 performs in probably the most challenging lighting conditions. This impressive high ISO feature is not limited to videos as the camera sensor can extend to ISO51200 to capture images at ever lower lighting condition. According to a report by GSMArena, the caption of the promotional video stated that the device is “engineered to capture detail beyond what the human eye can see.” The report pointed out that technically the claims by Sony are true because the human eye is only capable of detecting light that is equivalent to ISO1600 in light sensitivity of a sensor.
Sony first demonstrated this technology during Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 earlier this year. The company has already launched the device in the European market. Xperia XZ2 features a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display with near bezel-less design, updating the design up to the 2018 standards. Sony also added support for High Dynamic Range content on the XZ2 and the device continuously up-scales all content to near HDR for better quality playback. It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC along with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. Users can use the dedicated microSD card slot to expand the storage of the device if they are running short on storage.

The device also comes with a 5-megapixel selfie camera with Exmor lens and f/2.2 aperture. The company has added support for new Advanced Motion Eye camera that can record 4K HDR movie on a smartphone along with super slow-motion video recording at 960fps in Full HD.
