Sony Xperia Z2 to have a Deluxe Edition in China

Announced last month at MWC 2014, Sony’s Xperia Z2 seems to be one of the hottest smartphones of this year. While it’s not on sale yet, the new Xperia should be widely available around the world starting April, with only a few markets (including Japan) reportedly getting it this month.

According to ePrice, Sony will release an Xperia Z2 Deluxe Edition in China at the same time with the regular version. The Deluxe Edition of the handset will come bundled with a DK36 Magnetic Charging Dock, a STM10 Stereo Microphone, a MDR-NC31EM Digital Noise Cancelling Headset, and a SCR10 Style Cover Stand - all being Sony-made original accessories. It appears that this Deluxe version will be limited to 1,000 units. For the moment, it's not clear what else it will offer besides what you can get with the regular Z2, and neither if Sony intends to launch a similar Deluxe Edition in other markets.

The regular Sony Xperia Z2 will cost around $800 (4,999 CNY) in China, and the Deluxe Edition doesn’t seem to be much more expensive at $884 (5,499 CNY). Of course, the price of the regular model is pretty high itself anyway. The Z2 should be officially introduced in China on March 27, and could go on sale there shortly after that.

In case you’re curious about them, you can see all the accessories mentioned above in the slideshow below.

the weird thing is that Japan and China hates each other, but Sony always makes sure China gets their best devices. But not the US or Great Britain the only countries that's keeping China from Stomping Japan.. WEIRD HUH?

more potential buyers.

i really don't understand why japan keeps pushing their products to china when they easily suffer when those people suddenly feel inimical whenever the senkakus are brought up. why don't they just focus on more neutral markets. india, for example, is a better target market. they should just spend more marketing money there.

You just wanted to use the word "inimical". Next time make sure you ask Pee-wee Herman how to use the word in sentence because you didn't pull it off this time.

Nice package, I'm impressed.
This as a kit, kills a lot the competition imo, even as just accessories after sale.

I'm not a Sony can, don't use at all, admired some of their phones, but never used.
Availability is a concern just Like HTC might be.

it will be a harsh competition this year for handsets manufactures and a confusing year for consumers

This and galaxy s5 will absolutely blow away htc crap1 in terms of sales and camera despite its over hyped and overrated nature.
