The Xperia Z2 offers 4K video recording, 5.2-inch full HD display and a brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor.

“With Xperia Z2 we have taken our premium Z series to the next level, delivering unique experiences that only Sony can offer,” said Kunimasa Suzuki, President and CEO of Sony Mobile Communications. “We have redefined the smartphone once again through our camera. Xperia Z2 offers an innovative experience that captures memories in stunning detail through 4K video shooting, or offers new ways to use the camera with our unique Xperia camera apps.”

Sony Xperia Z2 Features

The Sony Xperia Z2 features a 5.2-inch full HD Triluminous display running on a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapragon 801 Krait CPU with 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU.

Powered by a 3,200mAh battery, the Xperia Z2 comes packed in a body that is just 8.2mm thick, despite its superb camera functionality.
