The Sony Xperia Z2 might be faced with worldwide delays, could be pushed back to late April/early May
Over the years, the forum boards over at Esato have proven to be quite resourceful when it comes to insider information on Sony. This time around, however, the intel is rather concerning, as a user going by the alias of milukugiuniu claims to be in the know of a possible Sony Xperia Z2 distribution delay.

Until today, the expected release date of the Xperia Z2 was at some point in March, at least in some parts of the globe. According to the tipster, however, unspecified supply delays are said to have caused a worldwide delay in the launch date of Sony's new flagship. Apparently, only a limited stock will be made available at first, though it remains unknown which country these will be allocated to. A new date hasn't been specifically pointed out, but the wording does indicate a release sometime in late April/early May.

This unconfirmed report was corroborated by another user, though according to him, Europe would be something of an exception to the delay. The notion of any exception was shot down by milukugiuniu, however, who says that's "miles away form the truth", and that "Europe wouldn't be an exception".

If such delay indeed comes to fruition, it could spell trouble for Xperia Z2 sales, as the flagship would enter the market after rival Samsung's new Galaxy S5, and perhaps even HTC's All New One. In any case, do take this with a grain of salt -- it's best to just wait for an official confirmation before freaking out.

Thanks for the tip, Mar!

It's pointless to wait forever. Tech improves super fast so you just have to buy a phone at some point. Stupid to always wait for the next one.

And... thats why you can't beat Samsung.. make all the super phones you want but if you cannot meet the demand its difficult, same goes with HTC they actually have good phones but logistics is their main problem

Sony can't beat samsung if they keep one carrier exclusive here in the u.s. Which have the largest market.

I really hope this isn't true. My contract for my N9 ends on April the 11th and I want this to be available then! If not, I guess I'll have to be without a phone for a while lol....

Could be a nice choice for some, but for me Z2 is the better one to go for. Design is just really important for me. Also I prefer Sony's skin to Touchwiz. These are just personal opinions though. Performance is probably same. Other has higher clock speed, other has more RAM. And as for the camera we'll have to see. Also, if Sony ships those noise cancelling headphones with Z2 in Finland, it would be awesome! I think they do in UK, so maybe in other parts of Europe too since Europe seems to be the main focus for Sony right now.

The Z2 is starting to grow on me now. My biggest gripe would be the UI though. Everything else is pretty much top notch.

Yeah if you don't like the software the phone is dead because it's the thing you will look at.

Nope lol. But I can't access the network if I don't have a subscription for a carrier. So I won't have GSM or 3G. Of course I can use WiFi but it doesn't really help unless I'm at home
