Sony Mobile amazes Mobile World Congress once more with its back-to-back release of its new flagship, the Xperia Z2 Android smartphone and the Xperia Z2 tablet.
The Xperia Z2 gets a bump on size to a bit larger 5.2-inch, though it gets a more crisp and vivid screen with its full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution TRILUMINOUS Display, matched up with Live Colour LED and X-Reality for mobile engine. The display may not be 4K, but with its 20.7MP camera with its Exmor RS mobile image sensor, and the 27mm wide G lens, it gets to cam cord at 4k with 2160p at 30 frames per sec.
The Xperia Z2 tablet on the other hand gets to impress to sport the thinnest and lightest 10.1-inch tablet, measuring at 6.4mm and 439 grams, respectively. It also got a full HD TRILUMINOUS display at 1920 x 1080 resolution, though this one got its pixel density much more spread out at 224ppi compared to the 5.2-inch Xperia Z2 with 424ppi.
Both got the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974 chipset under the hood, clocked with same speed at 2.3GHz. They also got the same RAM and storage configuration, with 3GB and 16GB, respectively. Which, of course still got the microSD option to upgrade memory to at most 64GB capacity. Adreno 330 GPU is also on board for both models, with Android 4.4.2 KitKat pre-installed.
The Z2 tablet has an 8.1MP rear camera, a bit far in comparison with 20.7MP. Practically, the Z2 smartphone can be your primary camera, though you get the same Exmor RS for mobile imaging technology, plus the 2.2MP front-facing camera from the 5.2″ to the 10.1″ tablet version. Connectivity wise, the two iterations got NFC, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and A-GPS and GLONASS support.
Both got aluminum body and its contour design on its sides and corners still inherit those of its predecessor. It kinda sets Sony’s identity, and makes you feel you’re holding on one when you touch it with your hands. Plus they’re both waterproof, another distinction Sony wants to get ahead of to as well. The Xperia Z2 smartphone and Xperia Z2 tablet comes out in Black and White, though the smartphone has an additional variant with the color Purple. Pricing haven’t been announced yet, though its global roll out is set to commence by next month, March 2014.
