Specs leak for the Sony Xperia Z2, code named Avatar

0. phoneArena 13 Sep 2013, 13:59 posted on

The Sony Xperia Z caused quite a ruckus at CES early this year, with its ability to be submerged in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes; the device is even available from a U.S. carrier, T-Mobile. Since then, we've seen the humungous Sony Xperia Z Ultra launched and the introduction of the Sony Xperia Z1, the first in a new line of "One Sony" camera-centric smartphones...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

1. Design, especially details. It is very sexy For me smartphone is not just gadget but it is also accessory. Like bracelets, watch, or ring.
2. Premium materials. Feels very "rich"
3. Specs
4.Camera, etc.
Only minus point can be bezel but you never get perfect product, there is always something to improve.
Sorry for my English:(

When you trace this leak to the original source - a rumor thread on esato - the insider guy says the Z2 has a 1080p display - that gives you about 424 ppi at 5.2", not 500+

Which is more than enough. I don't see the reason to increase ppi when is already on a level that our eye cant see the difference

Hoping the pixel density is over 440 ppi on the final product. Take my money.

Its 500ppi!
Don't you read? And there;s just no way Sony will have anything below that-mainly for marketing reasons.

The Xperia Z was released earlier this year, then they release the Xperia Z Ultra in less than a year; granted, it was their attempt at a phablet, but a week and a half prior to that, they announce the Xperia Z1, and now we're already hear rumours about the Z2

I wouldn't buy a Sony phone unless they get their product portfolio to look a bit more cohesive. Flagship should mean flagship, not "subship" we'll be hearing about upcoming Xperia phone from Sony in just 5 months I bet.

This is why I respect Samsung. The S3 is going to be relevant for another year. Meanwhile the Z is already forgotten and the Z1 already has a replacement leaking. Sony is still playing by 2010 rules. Release as many phones as you can and screw the old ones (I. E. Sony Ion & Sony T/L, and any other from 2012).

Ok I'll give you that. But Samsung stands by their flagship; Sony does not. And Samsung only has one true flagship a year, not counting the Note while Sony has ~3.

Let me ask you something wich one is the true flagship from Samsung?
S4 S600/Octa, S4 Active, S4 S800, S4 Active S800 or Note 3.

This year Sony only has 1 true flagship “Xperia Z1”

The S4 SD 600/Octa 5410 are the flagships.

The others are just niche fillers, not replacements.

The SD 800 S4 is meant to take advantage of the limited proliferability of LTE-A in the world. It serves no other hands-on purpose than that in South Korea.

The S4 Active just caters to athletic users or users that work in certain types of environments where dust and moister is prevalent. No way does it overshadow the S4 SD 600/Octa 5410, as there are trade-offs and risks to this model. The SD 800 S4 Active is the same case scenario above, if that turns out to be true.

As for the Note 3, that's not comparable really. The Note is aimed at a different kind of demographic.

The Sony Xperia line of phones just... releases phones just to release phones; with the intent of overshadowing the other in a very short period of time.

Say what you will about Samsung, but they're giving you choices on how you want your flagship presented to you, as opposed to Sony, which is just giving you a new flagship.

I really want to know what you’re gonna say when S4 S800 is sold outside south korea, because according to this article S4 S800 will not only for South korea.

http://www.androidbeat.com/2013/09/deutsche-telekom-confirms-theyre-going-carry-snapdragon-800-powered-galaxy-s4/

And from what i know Note 3 is already overshadow the S4.

There is big difference between choices and flooding the market.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Mini and LTE-A variant aren't considered flagship devices, there is no moral obligatory need to upgrade, or switch to any of these devices, as Samsung is just throwing commercial concepts at a wall to see what will cater to a niche market.

As for the SD 800 variant, the only thing different about the phone is the GPU, your country, or part of the country isn't likely to roll out LTE-A for a few more years, in which case, the S4 will be highly irrelevant.

Also, with the way Samsung has optimized its TouchWiz UX software on the S4, there's likely no difference in performance on the device. The hardware is only as good as the software optimized to it. So I don't feel like I'm losing out with my SD 600 variant, neither should anyone else.

Hahaha... Just stop your BS, and stop defending your beloved company like mindless fanboy.

Hey i’m not talking about those crappy phones.
its all about flagship
(Flagship = a phones with the best specs and features)

Say whatever you want, but you can’t deny the fact that this year samsung has many flagship and they flooding the market.

You must be a new kid over here. Samsung had many flagship variants since the first Galaxy S. It's nothing new. Sony is using the same success formula as Samsung but just undecided when to release flagship devices.

The flagship is the S4(the versions are region dependent, so excluding few countries like Singapore most have just one-usually the SD600)
S4 active is just a niche device, which happens to be high specced to compete with Sony.
Btw, Sony had announced the XZ only this year, and that was meant to be their flagship, but because of pressure from better specced rivals like S4 and One, they released a new flagship, the Z1.
Note series is marketed seperately by Samsung, its never their flagship phone.
Sony are just repeating the mistake HTC did last year. Thankfully, HTC realised that and announced that the One is going to be their flagship throughout the year(the Maxx will be again like the Note, a seperate category).
