Following these steps, Sony is also competing a lot to fix their steps in mobile competition by launching new technologies in the form of new Smartphones.

SPECIFICATIONS OF SONY XPERIA Z2
The main feature by which for which Sony Xperia Z2 will create a big bang in the mobile market is “SONY DIGITAL NOICE CANCELLING” feature. Sony Xperia Z2 is going to be the first phone to include this feature. Also, this technology rich gadget is going to be more powerful than any other Smartphone previously launched. It will also include the waterproof feature.
This innovative handset will also be blessed with the power of Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. For boosting its power, it also includes CPU of 2.3 GHz along with 4G LTE. A RAM of 3 GB adds additional power to its features. Now for supporting these functionalities, this new Smartphone needs a smart and strong battery backup and for that, it also includes a battery of 3,200 mAh. If you will enable this battery in STAMINA mode, then your device’s battery will last for a long time.
If we look at its storage functionality then it is blessed with a storage of 16 GB which can be extended further with a MicroSD card which further supports cards of 64 GB. The gadget needs a strong operating system for running all these applications smoothly so far that it is featured with Android KitKat. By all these features you can estimate that how Sony has upgraded its Smartphone from Sony Xperia Z1 to Sony Xperia Z2.
I think all this brief description will not completely specify its features in details so lets have a look at its detailed description.
SONY XPERIA Z2 CAMERA
The main technology of Sony Xperia Z2 is shooting a video of 4K, which is four times the pixels of HD and twice the resolution of 3,840 x 2,160. All this can be done with a strength of 30fps. You will be amazed to know that the camera of Sony Xperia Z2 will be of 20.7 MP. It is among the mobile version with Bionz processing engine and proven Exmor RS image sensor, all this comes along with Sony’s G Lens.
All these features come integrated with a built in application by which you can shoot a Timeshift video, but if you don’t like its built in app then you can also use an AR app too. With the help of the timeshift video mode, you can easily shoot 120 frames per second. Even you can select different scenes for viewing playback.
It also includes another new app which helps you to enable the background and adjust shallow field depth, i.e. You can easily capture two images with different focus from the same location and you can slow blend these photographs easily. The smartest feature provided in this gadget is that its primary camera is supported by a camera of 2.2 MP which has the capability to shoot a video of 1080p at the rate of 30fps.
But it is sad to say that it does not support an optical image stabilizer, although it supports a SteadyShot digital image stabilization which has its aim at counter camera shake.
AUDIO QUALITY OF XPERIA Z2
For delivering the advanced quality sound Sony has placed its speakers in the front end because of which it is also known as S-Force Front Surround. Its MDR NC31EM noise cancelling handset comes integrated with a wonderful handset but you have to use a specific handset if you wish to take the advantage of the noise cancelling feature on this phone.
DISPLAY OF XPERIA Z2
This amazing gadget is blessed with a 5.2 inch IPS LCD Triluminous display with an HD pixel resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a pixel density of 424 pixels per inch. It uses Sony’s Reality technology for optimizing sharpness, contrast and colors. This technology is also claiming that it will come with best color reproduction with its device. Also, it is supported with a Live Color LED.
DESIGN OF XPERIA Z2
Because of these wonderful features, people might be thinking that the weight of this gadget will be little more, but believe me that it is only about 163 grams and also it is of thickness 8.2mm. From here you can see that, Sony Xperia Z2 is 0.3mm thinner that Sony Xperia Z1 and also it is 7 grams lighter. But along with these features it is still cased in an aluminum design which is called OmniBalance by Sony.
According to its look, it is very much similar to Spny Xperia Z1 which is also having the same metal case design, larger bezels and galss back. Like Xperia Z1 it is also resistant to dust and according to IP58 and IP55 standards, it is also waterproof. All these features allow it to resist water for approx 30 minutes and in 1 meter depth.
FEATURES AND INTERFACE OF SONY XPERIA Z2
The interface of Sony Xperia Z2 is very much same as that of Xperia Z1but its updated operating system i.e. Android Kitkat will create a bang in the market. The device has also come blesses with few new features like hidden menus. It is also served with a “SMART BACKLIGHT CONTROL” which helps in keeping the screen on the thing you are looking for. It is in the same as Samung does with Smart Stay.
You can also double tap the screen for waking it up which is same as LG’s knock ON feature. Even you can answer and reject calls with the help of its hand gesture feature. It has also inherited Golve mode feature from Xperia Z1 Compact which allows you to operate it even when you are wearing gloves. The availability of simple home option will simplify the access of the home screen.
POWER OF SONY XPERIA Z2
The power of this Smartphone is extracted from 2.3 GHz quad core processor. Fans of Xperia series will expect to see an octal core chip inside its next powerhouse. But for this we have to wait and then watch what we will get in its new release. Its power is also boosted with a RAM of 3 GB.
With all these major and advanced features you can estimate that how this new gadget can change the future of the mobile world. But for grabbing this in your hand, you have to wait for some time, but at this time you do its advance booking, till then you can share with us in the comments that what features you are expecting in this new gadget.
