IF YOU want to take your selfie game to another dimension, the Sony Xperia XZ2 is the smartphone for you.

Launched at Mobile World Congress, the latest addition to Sony's smartphone range features innovative 3D scanning capabilities.

Users can create three-dimensional selfies using the front-facing camera that can be uploaded to Facebook.

There is even the possibility that the 3D creations could one day be used as avatars in Sony's gaming range.

The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact come with extended 5.7" HDR Full HD+ 18:9 displays and what Sony claims is the world's first 4K HDR movie recording in a smartphone.

"If entertainment is your priority, then our new Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are your smartphones", Sony executive vice president global Hideyuki Furumi said.

"From what's inside - world-class technology, to a new sleek, sophisticated design, these smartphones are everything you need and probably a lot more.

"We have pushed Sony's boundaries even further with our new products for movie recording, viewing, and music listening - offering entertainment to the extreme."
