Sony Xperia ZL2 gets official as a slightly smaller version of the Z2 sporting new design
Sony has introduced a new smartphone too today. The Xperia ZL2 was unveiled in the company’s home market of Japan, and it appears to have been made for KDDI, a local carrier. On the other hand, based on its name this is also the successor to the Xperia ZL from last year.
The original Xperia ZL was announced alongside the Xperia Z, but while the latter has already gotten two successors, the former has so far received no sequel. Since the ZL was made available internationally (though in a more limited fashion than the Z), there’s a (pretty slim) chance that we’ll one day see the Xperia ZL2 in other countries and territories as well.
The Sony Xperia ZL2 comes with a 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen, a 20.7 MP rear camera with LED flash and 4K video recording, a 3 MP front camera, a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 150 Mbps 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat. Its dimensions are 137x72x10.8 mm, and it weighs 167 grams. It adheres to the IP58 standard for water and dust resistance.
The Xperia ZL2 basically seems to be a smaller version of the current Sony flagship, the Xperia Z2. The ZL2’s screen is a tad smaller, as is its battery capacity. Other than that, they come with pretty much the same specs. The ZL2 will be out in Japan by the end of this month in the color versions you can see above.
