Release a smartphone on the local market to the worldwide release – standard practice for Sony. So with the release of Xperia A2 and alarmed all Western blogs: and suddenly it is compact flagship of the new generation? Too much like a Japanese newcomer to Z2 Compact with “spy” shots. Worth a look, compare and find out what’s interesting this device.
Alleged mini-Z2 appeared this spring in Weibo, the Chinese social network. Despite the poor quality of the renderings, it is obvious that the rear panel of the smartphone is not made of tempered glass, it is – matte plastic. The same used in the Xperia A2.
4 color options has an Asian black and white, which nowadays no surprise, orange and light purple (lavender, according to the manufacturer).
But the characteristics of A2 does not quite match up with rumors of Z2 Compact: HD-display 4.3-inch, 4-core Snapdragon 800 2.2 GHz, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, a battery 2300 mAh. On the other hand there is a 20.7-megapixel photo module (+ camera for video conferencing on a 2-megapixel) and a nice bonus of almost all flagship Xperia – protection from moisture and dust to IP58.
The physical dimensions of the smartphone – 128 x 65 x 9,7 mm – slightly thicker device Z1 Compact. A2 is different from the last Android 4.4 out of the box KitKat.
Who designed the new product? In 2014, a device with such specifications can not claim the title of “flagship flagships”, so maybe he has a different purpose? And, most importantly, an attractive price tag?
Will the Japanese company in the wake of its competitors by introducing new Compact with characteristics somewhat simplified compared to the “older brother”, or Z2 Mini A2 is different from a top stuffing? Share your opinion in the comments.
