With the Sony Xperia XZ2, You Can Finally Record 4K HDR Movies On Your Phone

We’ve seen smartphones being able to record movies in 4K, but we’ve never had the pleasure of recording in powerful HDR that makes colours richer and more vibrant. Enter the Sony Xperia XZ2 – the first smartphone to let you record HDR videos. Time to immortalise all these sweet memories in beautiful HDR.

Groundbreaking Video Recording

Videos capture all the action so that you can relive your special moments and not forget even a single second of them. The Sony Xperia XZ2’s Motion Eye camera takes video recording to the next level with 4K HDR that gives your videos an expanded colour palette and contrast ratio. On top of that, you can also capture more details in both the brighter and darker areas of the frame. The result? An absolutely lifelike video with colours that pop and make you want to play it again and again.

The Sony Xperia XZ2’s video recording capability also comes equipped with a super slow motion function that has been improved to 960fps, even in Full HD. Next time when you jump into a pool, perform parkour, or simply jump on the spot, you can capture these moments in breathtaking slow-mo videos with the Xperia XZ2 to share them on Instagram.

Here’s one that Chester did where he queued slow motion a few times and you can see the effects on the water and the flags:

Relive Memories on a HDR Display

One of Sony’s biggest successes is the revolutionary BRAVIA TV technology which brings you sharper and more vibrant pictures. Now take that impressive piece of technology and put it into the XZ2, and you can enjoy videos in more luminous colours and deeper contrast. The 5.7” Full HD screen also up-converts videos to near HDR (if it wasn’t already HDR in the first place), so that well-taken videos become stunning videos worthy of multiple replays.
