The Z2 smartphone now rolls out with the same aluminium-edged design, quad-core processor, Full HD display, sexy glass display front and back and impressive 20.7-megapixel camera. The most interesting feature is that it is completely waterproof. Xperia Z2 has a larger 5.2-inch display, 2.3GHz Qualcomm processor which makes phone run faster, the operating system is of the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The new feature is the camera has capability of capturing 4K video.


The Xperia Z2 is physically very similar to its predecessor. It has the aluminium band running around the edge, that not only makes it look like a luxury and makes it comfortable to hold.

It has glass front and back which looks cool. It does of course make it rather more susceptible to scratches from keys in your pocket, so if you want to keep it looking pristine, you should pop it in a case. Like its siblings, the Z2 is completely waterproof which allows you to submerse up to 1 metre (3.3 feet) under water for 30 minutes.


The same resolution display which Z1 has is same out here for Z2, a 5.2-inch display of 1920x1080 pixel resolution. The screen has a slightly lower ppi. Sony reckons the display uses the same 'Triluminous' technology from its Bravia TVs, which makes it more stunning.

Software and processor:The Z2 will be running with the latest version of operating system, Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Sony has offered usual software tweaks including a customisable app menu and access to its PlayStation Mobile games store and Music and Video Unlimited streaming services.

It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, backed up by 3GB of RAM. This is of absolutely first smartphone from Sony with the 3GB of RAM.


The same is of 20.7-megapixel camera this is not much interesting feature, we can find the same on the Z1 and the Z1 Compact. But Z2 has a tricked it up in the form of 4K video capture it doubles the resolution of the Full HD video previously available.

Sony has not revealed how much the phone will cost, but it surely costs upto £500 when it goes on sale in the UK.
