While the trend of 2k18 was the 18:9 or bezzel less displays sony might not be following it.

Processing and U.I
This phone would match the Qualcomm’s line-up by having the latest qualcomm snapdragon 845(which is expected to be featured in samsung s9 and s9+) and for managing all this high-tech setups XZ2 will be powered by android 8.0 and definitly Sony will add its own customized U.i.
The XZ2 sports 3D glass on both faces of its aluminum frame, with the front offering a larger screen-to-body ratio than any previous Xperia. Its glossy finish comes in four different colors — black, silver, green, and pink — and is contrasted by the non-scratch polycarbonate finish on the XZ2 Compact. At the back you will find the camera sensor along side a flash and some other sensors (it is not clear that what that sensors will do,they might be there for some V.R related works.) everthing uthere will be followed by a fingerprint sensor and Xperia branding.
For sound this time sony is giving us “S Force” stereo speakers adorn the front face of the phones, and XZ2 (but not Compact) supplements the audio with a haptic feedback system that syncs up vibrations to the sound.

The XZ2 will be dust- and water-resistant have a 3,180mAh battery that can be charged via USB Type-C or via a wireless charger. The XZ2 Compact, on the other hand, will have a smaller 2,870mAh battery and will lack wireless charging.
