Specs leak for the Sony Xperia Z2, code named Avatar

Specs leak for the Sony Xperia Z2, code named Avatar
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.  That would mean that the Sony Xperia Z is getting a little long in the tooth and is due to be replaced in Sony's line up.

That's where our story begins. A source claiming to be close to the situation (no, not the Jersey Shore cast member) revealed what he says are the specs to the Sony Xperia Z2 (C770X). The phone is code named Avatar and is equipped with a 5.2 inch IGZO Triluminuous Display with a 500ppi pixel density. If true, this would top the current industry leader, which is the 468ppi on the 4.7 inch HTC One. The silicon inside the phone would be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 Chipset and a multitasker's wet dream, 3GB of RAM, would be on board.

The 20.7MP rear-facing camera would support 4K video capture and a 3200mAh cell would keep the lights on. And the Sony Xperia Z2 would give you a break as it said to run on Android 4.4 Kit Kat. Expect the new model to be on display at CES 2014 where it will have some pretty big shoes to fill.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

The main advantage of IGZO tech is that it consumes less power for high-res displays and it also has higher sensitivity on touchscreens, with far less noise to contend with.

the good thing is that it will put retina display to shame. wait, today's 440 PPI has already put retina display to shame.

Wohhh awesome. but isn't this too early to announce another flagship phone ??? And 500ppi ??? So what would be the resolution??? 500ppi igzo triluminous display 3GB ram 4k recording snapdragon 800 my personal addition: zenon flash. OIS less bezel than current z1 finger print scanner (just to keep the trend) a new design may be.

Nah, TROLL would spit on it because of the Snapdragon 800 inside.

No no no akki® It's still using Snapd®agon™ The specs is great, but still let down by Adreno330. If only Sony used Adreno330 MP6 6X GPU, PvrSgx544X6 MP6 would be superb. ™

Xenon

Doesn't the z1 have OIS already? I have only one more thing to add, wireless charging. I think the actual design of the Xperia Z line is probably one of the prettiest on the market, only a few moderate tweaks are needed I think. Most of which would come in the form of tiny bezels. I think they should pick a different ui experience, the circular icons just look dumb to me.

No, the Z1 doesn't have OIS, sadly. That and the lack of Xenon flash were the big camera-related disappointments for me about it. I might still get it, or I might get the Nexus 5, which is now rumored to have OIS. But it has no microSD. Argh!

I'm probably going to get the Nexus 5 if I can get it off-contract on Sprint. I will be happy so long as Google at least comes out with a 32GB model, that and using google music with unlimited data will be able to handle anything I throw at it. Though I really think that all flagship phones should be coming with a minimum of 32 GB in 2013 thanks to apps and photo/movie/song files getting bigger.

O for GOD sake not another A9-A15 CPU Why not A15s, Tegra4, Omap5, NovaThor® ™

Not early, the XZ was announced in CES 13. And given that the leaks for this are starting now, this may be announced at the CES 14 too-gap of one year.

I've been waiting for a phone to come with an IGZO display, I thought apple would release the 5S with it....but it would seem I was wrong :/ But an IGZO triluminuous display? I bet that would look amazing. And paired with that massive battery, it should sip power and easily last a full day of heavy use without losing power.

Hard to believe this rumour. Until now Sony had some catching up to do and thus they were releasing two flagships per year. Now that the Z1 is up there with the competition, I think Sony can save some development costs and delay next flagship until earliest when Galaxy S5 comes to the market. Let alone that replacing important models so soon pisses off the owners of the previous models and devalues their flagships.

S**T. I was thinking to get Z1, it is fantastic phone but now there will be better one in January. I am quite confused what to do, wait or not.
