The popular phone tipster claimed that Sony’s XZ2 and XZ2 Compact smartphones will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. The phone will be running with Google’s Android Oreo mobile operating system.



And here’s the good news: Sony users might avail the XZ’s Premium offering a 19-megapixel, f/1.8 camera. Included also is the phone’s rear fingerprint sensor, a departure of the usual button-based sensors.



What’s the difference between XZ2 and XZ2 Compact phones?
