It was a general notion that the best device announced at the MWC 2014 was the Sony Xperia Z2. It was a bit of a shock in the first place that Sony announced a new flagship hardly six months after they had announced the Z1, but once they did, the device gained a lot of attention. To put things into perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was announced at the MWC and to be generally called an overall better device against a phone that is expected to set the benchmark for Android phones in 2014 was a pretty sweet thing for Sony.
However, one thing that has always hurt Sony despite some very good phones has been their slackness in making them available. Yet, this time Sony is keen to make amends. As expected, the device was launched in India today for Rs 49,990. Sony Xperia Z2 will be available starting May 12th and will ship with a couple of freebies which includes a fitness tracker band called smartband and a flip cover. Not just this, Sony proved a full insurance against any accidental damage to your device within first six months.
The Xperia Z2 betters the Z1 in several aspects. It comes with a 5.2 inch True HD display with surround sound front speakers. There is a Snapdragon 801 SoC alongside 3 GB of RAM powering the phone which has 16 GB internal memory and a 20.7 MP rear camera with Sony’s Exmor RS sensor. The battery is a removable 3200 mAh one and the device will be available in all three colors which includes white, black and purple. Some of the stores offline have already started taking pre-booking for the device, so you might want to go ahead and try that out if you cannot wait!
