A few days back Sony had announced its Xperia Z2a smartphone for Taiwan but had not revealed much of its details. However, it was considered to be similar to the Xperia ZL2 that was introduced in Japan. Well now more specifications for the Xperia Z2a have been revealed.
As thought earlier, it’s specs match those of the Xperia ZL2 except for the 16GB internal storage which is half that of Xperia ZL2.
According to reports, Sony Xperia Z2a appears to be a compact version of Sony’s flagship smartphone Xperia Z2. It has a smaller screen (5-inch) as compared to the Xperia Z2’s 5.2-inch screen and a smaller 3000 mAh battery, that has 200 mAh less capacity than the 3200 mAh battery of the Xperia Z2. Xperia Z2a has a plastic back panel while the Xperia Z2 has a glass back panel. The rest of the specs are quite identical in both.
The Sony Xperia Z2a features a 5-inch Triluminos display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a Qualcomm 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage expandable through microSD. The device has a 20.7MP primary shooter same as Xperia Z2 and both run Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS. The Xperia Z2a is also dust and water resistant.
The Sony Xperia Z2a will hit the Taiwan stores in July and will probably be available in the Asian markets only. Its pricing is not yet revealed but would surely be less that the Z2. Sony fans who want a slightly smaller and cheaper version of the Xperia Z2 might find the Xperia Z2a a good buy. Let us know your thoughts.
