You've seen the leaked specs, now take a gander at what is being called the Sony Xperia Z2
Sony has certainly caught our attention with a number of high-end Android phones. Ever since the Japanese OEM divorced Ericsson, it seems to have put models like Sony Ericsson Xperia Play behind it. The Sony Xperia Z caught everyone's attention this past January at CES and it followed that up with the Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet and the camera-centric Sony Xperia Z1.

The other day, we heard some speculation about an upcoming Sony Xperia Z2, rumored to be seeing the light of day this coming January at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. The phone is expected to carry a 5.5 inch IGZO, Triluminos screen with a 540ppi pixel density. A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU will be under the hood and 3GB of RAM will be included. On the back of the phone you will find a 20.7MP rear-facing snapper with a Xenon flash. The 3500mAh cell keeps the lights on and pre-installed out of the box will be Android 4.4 KitKat.

The picture below is alleged to be that of the Sony Xperia Z2. The phone looks like the Sony Xperia Z but with a larger screen. The handset still looks pretty slim. If the Xperia Z2 is to be revealed during CES 2014, expect to see some more leaks of the device soon. The model number is the C770X and the code name of the unit is "Avatar".

This is supposedly a picture of the rumored Sony Xperia Z2

UPDATE: One of our loyal readers, apparently with connections to this device, tells us that the picture does not represent the Sony Xperia Z2. In addition, our source tells us that the device will be outed in March and April. Sony will no longer introduce new flagship devices at CES, says our tipster.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

More options to choose from. I think it's safe to say that a lot of fans were a little unimpressed by the Z1. I was one of those fans. The Z2 could actually WOW this time.

No, It doesn't feel right if it's true from sony. It may effect the sell of Z1 which is not available yet at the time. Yet if it's the truth, Z1 & Z2 may not much different in spec at all, maybe just the screen size or camera, and most of thing under hood probably the same if we look in there released history.

I have the Z now and it just released on TMOB,, however was out since January,, LMAO SMH... now im waiting on the lte version of the z1 Honami maybe the US wont get that phone until next yr,, and prob the Z2 US in 2015... there is where i fault Sony at... they are hurting there business by doing that.. The G2,, Note 3 Iphone 5S etc,, the Honami should be already out!!!!!!!!! To compete,, Sony i love you all,, but your stupid in some things...i guess this is why Sony has a small US base.. not taking anything away from there great high end phones.

yep you right, I love Sony but I also like Samsung. if sony don't deliver that the z1 on time im getting the note 3, sometimes I feel like sony is been arrogant like more arrogant than apple is.

I think its waaay better than Sammy.
Look at all versions of S4:
S4
S4 active
S4 Zoom
S4 Snapdragon 800
S4 dual
S4 mini
then i think there is no reason to complain about what Sony is
doing.

43. maccess (Posts: 633; Member since: 16 Jan 2013)


still the original s4 is their flagship.. s4 active , zoom or even mini aren't their flagship.. those for different type of customer.. how about the z2?? i bet it's a flagship phone.. their current flagship should be the z1.. but they leaked the z2 already despite the z1 isn't available yet on the market.. will you still waiting for the z1 when you know the better z2 maybe just arround the corner??

if the z2 offers everythings better than the z1 and it will come to the market soon enough then who the hell will buy the z1??

Z2 will not be annonced untill maybe January. I don't think that this is it because it looks too thin to be true( like 5 mm).

You misunderstood where I was going with my comment. Alan is claiming PA is amazed by their new phones, but they score so poorly.

Calm down, I'm on Sony's side for once.

ohh.. well, you don't need to mention that... everyone knows the PA's logic with rating:
70%: based on display
20%: based on peformance, camera and other features
10%: reserved qota for Samsung & iPhone

Well I was thinking it was an Xperia Z Ultra, but since I own one (not bragging) it doesnt look like one, since the bottom grid of apps are 3 on either side, this is 2, with no gaps between. To me it seems legit, or it could be a nice job on photoshop :)

32. kobainez (Posts: 302; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)


That's a stupid reason if u asked me. The Xperia Yuga aka Z specs was leaked the time when xperia s was released so what's your point?

posted on 17 Sep 2013, 02:01

34. maccess (Posts: 633; Member since: 16 Jan 2013)


considering this leaked not just the spec but the phone itself.. don't you think it's to early?? and hey the z1 isn't released yet.. you got my point??

35. maccess (Posts: 633; Member since: 16 Jan 2013)


one more think to ask you have you ever seen gs4 leaked even before the gs3 was released.. or htc one leaked even before the one x has been released?? hope you understand my point.. sony will kill the z1 potential buyers if these leaked keep happening.. *this post for comment 32*

That's cool, but till CES 2014 another version of Android would come so please install that in this and try to upgrade your devices faster Sony. And I want capacitive buttons not virtual buttons coz there's so much space left below.

Sony build for phone seem great! Was hard to decide between Z Ultra and Note 3 till turn the Z Ultra over, Sony has forgotten to include a led flash for their Z Ultra.

LED flash is important for close night shot like car number plate in accident.

540 PPI at 5.5 inches would require a resolution above WQHD (2560x1440), which ain't happening. Good try though.

And there I was thinking most people on this site had a brain.......might have to re-think that one! These are rumours, nailed in the same article by their anonymous tipster, by the way! Sony releases 2 top end devices (not including tablets/phablets) which means their next release should be around March. I was not sure I would get the Z1 but realise I miss my XZ way too much and upon seeing the Z1 in the metal/glass, it was love at first sight! It is on the way to be delivered tomorrow by Carphonewarehouse........Haters are always gonna hate but take off those blinkers and recognise true excellence! Nice job Sony!!

Whatever this thing is, it's crazy thin and a removable back cover?
