Sony is changing up its design language as weve seen in several leaks. The latest gives us a front and rear view of the Sony Xperia XZ2, the larger counterpart of the XZ2 Compact, which we saw from the side.

The XZ2 duo should be among the first to feature Snapdragon 845 and will be Sonys first to go 18:9. This particular unit will have a 5.7 screen with 1080p+ resolution according to the latest info from @evleaks.

The Xperia XZ2 reportedly upgrades the XZ Premium camera to f/1.8 aperture (down from f/2.0). Interestingly, the super slow-motion video recording (at 960fps) has been upgraded to 1080p resolution (from 720p).

Other changes include moving the fingerprint reader to the back and removing the 3.5mm audio jack. Both the small XZ2 and the Compact are betting battery upgrades, 3,180mAh and 2,870mAh respectively.

Here the two phones diverge the big one will have wireless charging and stereo speakers, the small one gets neither. The big one will have a glossy finish on the back, the small one will be matte. Theres no word on the waterproofing yet.
