At an event in New Delhi today, Sony finally launched their flagship smartphone ‘Xperia Z2’ in India, which is a tough competitor to the flagships from Samsung and HTC, the Galaxy S5 and the One (M8) respectively. Sony Xperia Z2 is one of the most premium smartphone that was announced back in February at the Mobile World Congress 2014. The Xperia Z2 has been launched in India at a price of Rs. 49,990 and the device will be available from May 12 onwards. What really impressive is that, Sony SmartBand SWR10 worth Rs. 5,990 and Sony original Flip case cover worth Rs. 2,990 will come bundled for free with the Xperia Z2.
Sony’s new premium flagship smartphone ‘Z2’ features a 5.2” Full HD Triluminos display with Live Colour LED, is powered by a 2.3GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, high capacity 3200 mAh battery and runs on the latest Android 4.4.2 (KitKat). The Z2 is equipped with a 20.7 megapixel camera with 1/2.3” sensor that offers the ability to capture videos in 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution @30fps and it packs a 2.2MP front facing camera.
Xperia Z2 offers amazing sound quality with stereo speaker output and Sony’s digital noise cancelling technology. Like Z1, Z2 is dust proof and water resistant by IP55/ IP58 certification. The Z2 is a beautiful device, encased in a single piece of aluminium frame with glass panels and is slightly thinner and lighter than Z1, being just 8.2mm thick and weighs 163g.
In addition to Info-eye, Social live and Timeshift burst, Xperia Z2 comes pre-loaded with new Xperia camera apps for both photo and video. These include: Timeshift video, Creative effect, Background defocus, AR effect, Vine and Sweep Panorama.
Unfortunately, unlike the international version of Xperia Z2, the Z2 launched in India doesn’t support 4G (LTE). However, the Sony SmartBand SWR10 is compatible with all devices running Android 4.4 from other brands as well.
