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.

    Well it’s all relative imo. Still at about the same price as the iPhone, and the z2 brings top notch hardware, software and design features. I think the Sony will be this years winner in the smartphone bout, just as HTC one last year or Samsung galaxy s3 the year before.
