As hard as Sony might be trying to put an end to accidental exposures of unannounced devices ahead of their time, Xperia Z1’s follow-up looks like it’s just about ready to break cover. Too soon? Probably, since the Z1 has been introduced to the world a measly three weeks ago and can only be had in one or two countries.
But progress waits for nobody and the Z2 (aka “Avatar”), if existing rumors are to be trusted, sure looks like a progressive device. Maybe not innovative, but a game-changer nevertheless.
With an overhauled design (no specifics on that just yet) and 5.2-inch IGZO Triluminos screen, the “next big thing” over in Japan is likely still in the early design stages, as its unveiling is said to be slated for April 2014.
Not January during CES? Not February during MWC? Apparently not, meaning Sony may be looking to pull a Samsung and start its own series of special, Unpacked-like events, separate from the often too crowded trade shows that everyone in the business attends.
So what else do we know about this Xperia Z2? Make sure you’re seated first, take a deep breath and read along: 506 ppi pixel density display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3 GB RAM, 3,200 mAh battery, Android 4.4 KitKat, 20.7 MP rear-facing camera with Xenon flash. Mind equals blown, eh?
