The rumour mills are churning online about the specs of the Sony Xperia Z2. The Xperia UL has been announced for launch in Japan with more countries expected to join later. Sony is planning to launch a whole set of new smartphones in the coming months, will 2014 push the profits up for the company?
The Sony Xperia UL comes with a 5 inch capacitive touch screen, rendering 1080x1920 pixels resolution. The Xperia Z2 is rumoured to come with a 5.2 inch capacitive touch screen, rendering 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution.
Hardware and Operating System
The Sony Xperia UL is equipped with a 1.5 GHz quad core processor. It comes with 16 GB of internal memory, which can be expanded by up to 64 GB using a Micro SD card. The device has 2 GB of RAM and runs on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
The Xperia Z2 is rumoured to have a 2.3 GHz quad core processor and 3 GB of RAM. The devices is expected to come loaded with the Android KitKat operating system.
The Sony Xperia UL sports a 13 MP primary camera and a 0.3 MP secondary camera. The Xperia Z2 is rumoured to come with a 20.7 MP primary camera with Xenon flash.
The Sony Xperia UL comes with a 2300 mAh battery. The Xperia Z2 is expected to get a battery upgrade from 3000 mAh to 3700 mAh. The better battery would be required for the 5.2 inch screen and the 2k display the phone is rumoured to come with.
The Sony Xperia Z2 is expected to be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2014. The event will be held in Barcelona between Feb 24 and 27. Many of the other smartphone manufacturers are expected to launch their devices at the event.
The Xperia UL is currently available only in Japan, but if the phone is a success it may be launched in other markets in Asia and Oceania.
There have been a few sceptics about the possible launch of the Xperia Z2 so close to the heels to the launch of the Xperia Z1. If the device is launched as expected Sony could be seen as a company that brings innovation to the markets faster. This would mean shorter shelf life for the company's smartphones as new devices take their place faster.
