Sony Xperia Z2 rumored for MWC unveiling, 5.2-inch 2,560×1,440 screen in tow
You’re about to read a rumor about the next Sony flagship smartphone. Before you do, though, we need to make something awfully clear: there’s no way to tell whether this is true or it’s just someone’s imagination at work. The source isn’t exactly known for reliably churning out info about unreleased Sony hardware, and the only reason we’re letting you know about this is that famous leaker @evleaks retweeted this information.
Now that we got that out of the way, here goes. Apparently Sony will introduce its newest top of the line offering at MWC in Barcelona next month – the handset codenamed Sirius. For the past couple of years, Sony has gotten us used to releasing two flagships per year, but the first half handset was so far announced at CES. When that didn’t happen this year, we had hoped that the company finally understood that self-obsoleting its high-end devices every six months doesn’t make much sense as a business strategy.
Alas, maybe next year. The new device is said to be called Xperia Z2, unsurprisingly, and it should come with a 5.2-inch 2,560×1,440 touchscreen, a 20.7 MP rear camera, and a massive 3,700 mAh battery, while also apparently managing to be “super slim” somehow. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor may be in there too, along with 3 GB of RAM.
If all this pans out, the Xperia Z2 is shaping up to be an important update to the Z1 only in terms of screen size, resolution, and battery capacity, as the extra 1 GB of RAM isn’t likely to be felt by most people in day to day operation.
