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...

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).

They may be change their mind to produce it because of unappealing wide top and bottom bezel of honami.

62. Kishin (Posts: 706; Member since: 30 May 2013)

Maybe the going to make the z2 same dimensions as z1 without making the phone bigger.
Just like the Note 3

As far as rumour goes, Sony and Snapdragon have paired to make special SoCs from next year. They are said to be up to 20% more powerful than the then cream of crop from Snapdragon. So according to this rumour, the CPU and the GPU should be faster than the 800.

Hope they will do:

*wireless charging;
*4K video;
*thinner bezel;
*3-4 gb or Ram;
*Silicon-anode Li-Ion battery;
*sapphire crystal instead of glass.

Will see. Not much left to wait. Only 15 weeks! In the mean time I'll enjoy my Z1.
