At the company’s MWC 2014 media event, Sony announced the Xperia Z2. The successor to the popular Xperia Z1 is largely an improvement, but not much else. Rather than doing anything revolutionary, we have here a device that is a result of simple evolution. The Xperia Z2 sports a 5.2-inch 1080p Triluminos display, and we are told that the viewing angle related issues have been fixed (at last!). Sony’s new flagship is powered by the new Snapdragon 801 SoC, which is basically a Snapdragon 800 on steroids (100 MHz faster core, 550 MHz GPU) coupled with 3 GB of RAM. On the back, you’ll find the same 20.7 MP camera, this time backed up with better software that supports 4K capture.
The Xperia Z2 comes with IP58 certification, just like the Z1. Also, despite an increase in screen size, dimensions (minute increase) and battery size (3,200 mAh), the Z2 weighs a tad lighter (158g).
Sony’s best in a Smartphone will launch in March in black, white and purple, for a pretty hefty price, €600/£600.
