Tokyo by night: a bunch of Xperia Z2 low-light photos and 4K video sample appear27
Sony Xperia Z2 is the flagship to beat this season, as it is launching with 5.2" 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 20 MP camera. All that jazz is placed inside a thin waterproof chassis, built with premium materials, so it might steal quite a lot of sales from the other spring chicken, the Galaxy S5, which will be released in April.
That same 20 MP camera has been tested at the evening on the streets of Tokyo, and found to be improved in comparison with the Z1. Despite that we still have the same 1/2.3" sensor size with f/2.0 aperture, the Z2 is said to focus much quicker than the Z1, especially in closeups and low light, while the color accuracy is deemed better. The pictures were shot in the camera's full resolution, rather than the Intelligent Auto mode, which shoots 8 MP photos, and there is also a 4K video sample added for a good measure.
A couple of samples from the Galaxy S5 also leaked last week, so now we have a chance to preview the cameras on both Android flagships for the season. Check out the Z2 camera samples below, and tell us what you think.
