Sony has introduced the successor of existing Xperia ZL in the form of Xperia ZL2 in Japan yesterday. Likely to be available in the standard black and white colors as well as a turquoise one, the new Xperia ZL2 features 5-inch full HD 1080p display with the Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 and X-Reality engine, and runs on latest Android 4.4 KitKat with Xony’s Xperia UI on top.
The other specifications of the Sony Xperia ZL include a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AB chipset, 3GB of RAM, and 3,000 mAh battery. The internal memory included in the phone is 32GB, and of course there is a microSD slot which can be used to expand the storage capacity further by up to massive 128GB.
Sony’s new flagship houses a 3.1MP front camera and 20.7MP primary camera with Exmos RS sensor, Sony G lens, and LED flash support at the back. The rear camera provided in the phone is capable of recording 4K resolution videos and can capture stills of up to 5,248×3,936 pixel resolution.
On the design perspective, the Sony Xperia ZL2 is a little bit larger than its predecessor Xperia ZL. It measures 137 x 72 x 10.8mm (compared to 131.6 x 69.3 x 9.8 mm of the Xperia ZL). It weighs 167gms which is 16g heavier than predecessor.
In terms of connectivity options, it has 4G LTE / Wi-MAX 2+, Wi-Fi 820.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with APT-X, GPS/ GLONASS, MHL 3.0, and NFC support.
There is no word on pricing yet, but the phone will be sold via Japanese operator KDDI starting late May 2014.
