Sony’s Xperia Z1 was a wildly successful model and we really liked it. These days, all the phones you see in the market have a ton of common features; that’s what was so different about the Xperia Z1. It had many features that no other phone on the market had. The Z2 is more of an evolution of the Z1. It’s expected to be launched in India soon and here’s what we expect of Sony’s new flagship model.
Xperia Z Series
Sony’s been putting out Xperia series phones for some time now. With the launch of the Xperia Z, Sony unleashed a new monster in the mobile market and sales for the Japanese manufacturer have been steadily growing. With regards to the Z2, it’s not a sea-change from what we saw on the Z1. The Z1 was a great phone and Sony seems to be sticking to the ‘If it isn’t broke, don’t break it’ school of thought. On a positive note the Xperia Z2‘s body appears to be far more robust than that of the Z1.
With every smartphone being launched in the market, there is a certain niche and a feature that brands are keen to exploit because it’s exclusive to their phones. With the other big brands, it’s always something over the top, but Sony has chosen to keep their prized assets first and foremost of great use to the lay man; case in point – 4K recording. This is 4 times sharper than a Full HD Recording – yep, that’s pretty awesome.
With Sony’s we expect nothing less than a spectacular camera and we’re eager to see how the mammoth 20.7MP lens performs in real-world conditions. Also, the fact that the screen size has been increased from 5 inches to 5.2 inches puts the phone in close competition with similarly priced handsets.
Like the Z1, the phone’s body is sandwiched between two layers of aluminum. It’s because of this that the phone is water-resistant and to a great extent shock-resistant.
So, far Sony has released quite a lot of information about this model. The Xperia Z2 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and features a 5.2-inch (1080×1920 pixels) Triluminos display with X-Reality engine. Powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974AB) processor with an Adreno 330 GPU, the Xperia Z2 features 3GB of RAM. The phones ships with 16GB of built-in storage (11.5GB user available) and features micro SD card storage expandability up to 128GB. It features a 3200mAh battery that’s rated to deliver up to 830 hours of talk time, standby time of 880 hours, continuous music playback time of 110 hours.
We’re honestly quite excited about the launch of the Sony Xperia Z2. Sony’s flagship model has some really cool features and we’re sure this phone is going to be a big hit in the Indian market. We have no idea about the price as of now, but expect it to be in the same range as other high-end devices.
