Sony Xperia Z2 gets a price hike in Europe
It’s not even available to buy yet, but the Sony Xperia Z2 has already received a price increase in Europe. Or, to be more specific, in Germany. Over there, the official recommended sales price for the Xperia Z2 used to be €599, but starting today that’s gone up to a whopping €679.
That’s clearly on the high side compared to any Android-running flagship smartphone released in recent years, but it may not be that surprising. See, over in the UK the recommended retail price for the device is £599, which at the current exchange rates means €717.
In other Eurozone countries, things are as follows: the Xperia Z2 costs €699 in France, Italy, and Spain, though just €649 in the Netherlands. All in all, this will be one expensive handset, that’s for sure.
The Sony Xperia Z2 was announced in late February during MWC. It comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, a 20.7 MP rear camera with LED flash and 4K video recording, a 2.2 MP front camera, a 2.26 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and a 3,200 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
