I have just read an article with a first look on / first review of the newer XZ2 (compact).
You can find it here (german language).
The interesting part is this one:
Auch ist der verwendete 19-Megapixel-Bildsensor derselbe, wie er schon in den Xperia-XZ1-Modellen vorzufinden ist. Durch die überarbeitete Bildverarbeitungssoftware soll die neue Motion-Eye-Kamera allerdings trotzdem bessere und rauschärmere Fotos machen.
Also the used 19-megapixel-image-sensor is the same on already found in the xperia xz1 models. Because of a revised image processing software the motion-eye-camera nevertheless should make better and lower noise pictures.
The question is:
Will Sony make the software also available for the XZ1 series (and perhaps XZ Premium)?

I really hope so. More than anything I would like them to make available 1080p video at 960fps for the XZ1 family.

May I know is that possible for XZ1 series get updated with the latest camera features from XZ2 series, since they are using the same 19mp sensor but with different SD835/845. _Thanks
..........craving for HDR photo/video shot.

However, through a collaboration with Qualcomm on the Snapdragon 845 ISP and the software to go with it, the XZ2 and XZ2 Compact offer a new generation BIONZ image processing algorithm/architecture.

I like all the new features from XZ2 series, except the design. Hope that sony can show some love to XZ1 series by upgrading the camera software.

Maybe they can bring the full hd super slowmotion, because it just ups the resolution and halfs the time. But I dont think they will.

I hope they will, I'll be more than satisfied with full hd slow motion. They did it with 3D creator and XZ Premium, let's wait and see.

I don't mind about the new features, but I really want the new image processing. I saw pictures taken from the XZ2, for the first time Sony proves they can do as good as its competitors!

Despite the new Image processor, usually what can be achivied by hardware processing can be emulated by software too (slower), therefore i think it's technically possible (if that "slower" is not "unuseably slow"). But there are strong commercial resons for not implementing it on an older model.
