With the Sony Xperia Z family of devices seeing such success over the past year, it’s no wonder the company decided to delivery a new mid-range entrant this season. With the Sony Xperia M2, Sony brings on what they suggest is the thinnest 4G smartphone in its category. It does indeed seem to deliver a premium experience in a package that won’t break the bank, no record-breaking necessary.
In an effort to keep the quality spread brought on by the Sony Xperia Z last year to the tablet world, Sony introduced the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. This device takes on the high-quality build of Sony’s most recent tablet effort and ushers in the next generation with the Xperia Z2 smartphone. This device works with the same waterproofing features as the Z2 smartphone and knocks out some high-powered innards as well.
This week we’re having a peek at Sony’s latest effort with the rebooted Z, a device called the Sony Xperia Z2. This device rolls out with a 5.2-inch Full HD display - that’s 1080 x 1920 pixels, with Sony’s Live Color LED powered by X-Reality for mobile technology. This device looks and feels just like the Sony Xperia Z or the Sony Xperia Z1, and if you blink you’d mistake it for one of these previous models - but the devil’s in the details.
This week we’re about to see the Sony Xperia M2 for the first time at Mobile World Congress 2014. This device works with a 4.8-inch qHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera at its back. Looking at first very much like the Sony Xperia Z from 2013, this device is the first to bring the line into this year’s hearty Xperia lineup.
With the Sony Xperia Z2, the company is bringing on a smartphone with some early heat in the 2014 hero phone race. This device works with upgrades to each of the key elements in the smartphone experience, including a larger display than in the original Z, a more powerful camera, and the newest in new Qualcomm processors to back it up. This device is also - of course - waterproof.
In what Sony suggests is the world’s first (larger than 8-inch) waterproof tablet, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is born. This machine works with a 10.1-inch Full HD (1080p) display with Triluminous for mobile technology and Live Color LED powered by an X-Reality for mobile engine. Needless to say, this is Sony’s most powerful and strangest tablet to date.
If you have, a smartphone that you need to get more runtime out of, Mugen Power is a good place to look. The company makes extended run time batteries and other gear for smartphones to help them last longer away from an outlet. The latest product from the company is the Mugen Power 3000mAh battery case for the Sony Xperia Z1 smartphone.
The folks at T-Mobile and Sony are proving they're willing to go the extra mile when it comes to the release of the Xperia Z1S this week. In the release - which begins today - both T-Mobile USA and Sony will be making this unique model available both online and in-stores. While the device has been made available in a more general sense from Sony before, this T-Mobile edition has just appeared available today.
To say that Sony is participating in the current “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” trend would be an understatement if you’ve been keeping track of their hero Xperia smartphone lineup. In the Xperia Z1S, we’ve got essentially the same build as in the internationally-aimed Xperia Z1, here coming to T-Mobile with the carrier’s Uncarrier plans attached, and just as much power as the original. In other words - if you liked the Xperia Z and were looking forward to the just that-much-better Xperia Z1 “Honami”, this is your winning ticket.
