Sony's smartphone business may be booming due to successful debut of Xperia Z1, but the company is far behind Samsung, when it comes to market share.
Sony, being a high-end handset manufacturer, is expected to launch a successor to the original Xperia Z1 in the coming days.
The Japanese giant Sony will announce the Xperia Z2 at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February, according to blog site AndroidSaS. Although we're not sure how reliable the blog site is in respect for Sony specific news. Meanwhile, popular leakster @evleaks reconfirms the existence of Xperia Z2.
According to AndroidSaS, the upcoming Xperia Z2 will incorporate a 5.2-inch display having a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Believe it or not, a 2K resolution will indeed look gorgeous. Also, the device is said to have a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 3,700mAh battery fitted inside. Further, the handset will be slimmer than the current generation water-resistant Xperia Z1.
Codenamed, 'Sirius', the Xperia Z2 is also said to be similar to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 in terms of hardware. Both handsets will have a 5.25-inch 2K display, and a quad-core processor powered by Qualcomm.
According to a report by Chinese website, Samsung is expected to use Sharp's 2K (UHD) display, instead of regular Super AMOLED panel. The display panel will pack a whooping 560 pixels per inch.
Moreover, Samsung is apparently preparing to launch the Galaxy S5 around mid-March in London, followed by retail availability by April.
