Sony, as it seems, has started its this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) campaign with all-guns-blazing. The Japan-based technology heavyweight has officially unveiled a slew of new devices, dubbed Xperia Z2 and Xperia M2, alongside another Z2 Tablet.
A lot is there to look forward to considering the kind of noise Xperia-based devices usually create. And this time it's no different. Both the Z2 devices are set to be available in March, while the M2 is pegged for an April arrival.
So let's take a closer look at each of the devices that were unveiled at Sony's MWC presentation in details.
Sony Xperia Z2 Smartphone
The new Xperia Z2, which is a direct successor to the previously released Xperia Z1, according to Sony, is a great deal although "at Sony, we believe details make the difference," says Kunimasa Suzuki, President and CEO.
Getting to know the in-device specifications better, the Xperia Z2, similar to the Xperia Z1, comes with a 5.2-inch "Triluminos" display at 1080p. The device (waterproof, as expected) runs on a 2.26 GHz MSM8974AB Snapdragon 801 processor, compared to Z1's 2.15 GHz MSM8974AB Snapdragon 800 processor.
Apart from that, the device offers 3GB of RAM and a powerful 3200 mAh battery. The Z1, comparatively, offered 2 GB of RAM with a slightly less powerful 3000 mAh battery. Other details include a similar 20.4 MP primary camera that was found in previous Sony smartphones.
There are also front facing speakers with "S-Force Front Surround" that have been included in the Z2.
Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
Following up on the initial announcement of the new Xperia Z2 smartphone, Sony has also pulled the curtains off its Xperia Z2 tablet - which basically sports the same internals as that of the smartphone with the same name, only made in a tablet avatar.
The tablet version of the Z2 boasts a 10.1-inch, 1080p "Triluminos" display with the similar 2.26 GHz MSM8974AB Snapdragon 801 processor that was announced for the smartphone. There's also a primary 8.1MP Exmor camera that coupled with a front facing 2.2 MP camera.
Changes to the tablet, in comparison to the smartphone, have also been made in terms of battery size, thickness, and weight, although everything else has just been carried over.
Sony Xperia M2
Lastly, but in no terms least important, Sony has also introduced another Xperia M2 smartphone, which is basically a cheaper alternative to the high-end Z2.
The M2 comes with a 4.8-inch qHD display with a 1.2 GHz MSM8926 Cortex A7 processor. It offers 1GB of RAM with a primary 8 MP Exmor camera, and 8GB of internal storage. Apparently, Sony is also making a variant of the M2 with two SIM card slots.
