MWC 2014: Sony Xperia Z2 confirmed for March
Sony has officially confirmed their new flagship Xperia Z2 android smartphone at MWC 2014.
It will pack Kit Kat (Android v4.4) from the outset and whilst the outward appearance appears to be near identical to the Z1, Sony has been quite drastically redesigning its innards.
The Z2 will move to an IPS based display which will feature its Live Colour LED technology. It appears to be based on the TRILUMINOUS tech, built in to the current crop of Sony’s high-end TVs, and extends the gamut of colours the Z2 will be capable of displaying. The screen, itself, will measure 5.2 inches diagonally and has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution.
Yes, of course it is 4K capable
The built-in RAM, battery and processing chip have also been given an upgrade, with the Z2 boasting 3GB of memory, 3200mAh of power and a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801. Like the Z1, the Z2 will also sport some uncanny water resistance but the stereo speakers have also been given an upgrade.
Sony’s commitment to 4K continues with the X2 and it can capture video up to 3840 x 2160 in resolution as well as play it back through a MHL 3.0 capable display. The Z2 will also feature Sony’s SteadyShot image stabilisation technology and can shoot as high as 120 frames per second in 720p.
The Xperia Z2 comes with Sony’s G Lens which is 27 mm wide and can capture stills up to 20.7MP.
The Xperia Z2 will be release globally in March with choices of black, white, or purple colour schemes.
