Looks like consumers have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the stylish looking Sony Xperia Z2. According to a new report, Sony's latest flagship handset, the Xperia Z2, might get delayed due to some component supply issues.
This could apparently push the anticipated availability of the Xperia Z2, possibly until May.
It was widely believed that Sony had planned on releasing the much hyped Xperia Z2 in select Asian and European countries by the end of March, followed by global retail availability in April.
Now, it seems that the device won't be able to ship on time, leading to a massive blow out for the Japanese giant. The completion in the high-end handset market is hard to ignore, and on the top of it--key players like Samsung and HTC may capture the market until the time the Xperia Z2 hits the retail shelves.
Sony Xperia Z2 Reportedly Facing Component Issues
According to several media reports, Sony has not been able to manufacturer enough Xperia Z2 handsets due to manufacturing defects. Apparently, the reason for the delay is one of the suppliers. Reportedly, Chipset giant Qualcomm had been blamed for the delay. Now all of the sudden this theory has been squashed off completely.
If the reports of delay in producing the device turn out true, the Sony Xperia Z2 might hit the market around April last week or May first week. In recent years, Sony was able to enjoy a lead over other players, due to the availability of flagship device much ahead before the rival handsets hit the market.
