Sony Xperia Z2 Release Date 2014 in USA

Sony, the Japanese mobile phone maker is preparing some of new Xperia smartphones to be unveiled on CES 2014 and MWC 2014.

Sony also plans the launch of multiple smartphones at CES, and that two of them will be codenamed Sirius and Canopus (Xperia Z2 was rumored a few months ago to be codenamed Avatar).

These all are Xperia Z2 rumors as nothing is confirmed officially yet. However, considering the fact that Sony had launched Xperia Z at CES 2013, it would not come as a surprise if it did a similar move with the upcoming Xperia Z2 handset.

Unlike Samsung, Apple and LG which follow annual release cycle for the launching of their next flagship smartphones, Samsung Galaxy S5 Release Date and iPhone 6 Release Date and LG G3 Release Date; Sony refreshes its flagship devices twice a year.

The trend started with the Sony Xperia Z launch in February, folled by Sony Xperia Z1 release date in September. This indicates that the next generation Sony Xperia Z2 launch date could be as soon as first quarter of 2014.

But, even if Sony Xperia Z2 handset revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014 in Las Vegas in January or at Mobile World congress in February, Sony will still require time until March for an Xperia Z2 release date in the market.

There are some recent news reports which suggest that Sony is planning to launch this Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone in April 2014.

The IGZO technology will improve the display quality and also enhance the battery life. It will bear even better resolution than the full HD screen with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution. This will result in high pixel density of 506 ppi.

  • Processor
    This is where speculations seems to be of very different nature. On one hand, some suggest that the device will be powered by the Snapdragon 800 processor only, which was also underneath the Xperia Z1. While other suggests that the Xperia Z2 will get a 64-bit processor which could be Qualcomm’s yet to be unveiled processor. Interestingly, Qualcomm has already released a 64- bit Snapdragon 410 processor, but that’s targeted at mid-range devices, so Sony might be waiting for the chip manufacturer to launch its top-end processor based on 64-bit architecture.

  • RAM
    In the smartphone market, the Galaxy Note 3 boasts of the most amount of RAM with a 3GB memory. However if rumors are to be believed, Sony Xperia Z2 will challenge that with 3GB RAM module as well.

But it will be using Xenon flash for low-light condition which is more powerful than LED flash. At the front, the smartphone will get a 3.5MP camera which can prove useful for video conferencing or self-portraits.

  • Connectivity
    The Sony Xperia Z2 will come with all the standard connectivity features including 2G/ 3G/ 4G network support, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC and GPS/ GLONASS.

  • Battery and Fast Charging
    Sony Xperia Z2 battery capacity is 3,500 mAh. Sony aims to significantly reduce the recharging time on its smartphones without compromising battery life or risking overcharging, using 10 to 15 W of electricity to double the rate of current chargers. The speed will make future Sony Xperia Z2 devices recharge fully in just an hour but will not damage anything.

  • Operating System
    Android 4.4 KitKat is likely the operating system running the Xperia Z2 with brand new features based on the Xperia Z1. Sony may incorporate its own media and printing services inside Google's new OS version for Cloud Print, Wireless Payment and cloud-based storages.

  • Xperia UI and Features
    Xperia UI is definitely the user interface on the Z2 with Android 4.4, Triluminos and X-Reality display engines, Sony exclusive apps, Sony exclusive multimedia services and anti-hazard proofing such as dust and water resistances.
