Sony revealed the brand new Xperia Z2 during Mobile World Congress just last week. While we sometimes see a delay between an announcement and an actual launch, the Xperia Z2 is hitting the market sooner rather than later. AndroidCentral noticed on Thursday that Phones4U in the U.K. is already accepting pre-orders for Sony’s new flagship smartphone, and that the device should be available to all as soon as April 11.
Phones4U has a few options for the Xperia Z2. You can pick it up for £47 a month with contracts on Vodafone or EE, and there’s a small discount down to £42 a month if you’re willing to drop £49.99 at check-out. If you’re willing to sign up for a 4G plan, you’ll also get a £50 gift card for the Google Play Store.
Phones4U will sell Sony’s Xperia Z2 in black or white, which means you’ll have to head over to O2 instead if you want the purple option. AndroidCentral also says there are incentives to pre-order the phone ahead of its launch, including a free Sony Bluetooth speaker, a half-off discount on Sony’s SmartBand and some media content from Sony.
The Xperia Z2 is a good looking phone, and it has a slightly larger and nicer display than the Xperia Z1, in addition to a faster Snapdragon 801 processor. You’ll still get the same camera experience and water resistance found on the Xperia Z1. However, the big question is whether or not you want to pick this up, opt for Samsung’s new Galaxy S5, or stick around to see what HTC has in store on March 25 when it introduces its next flagship.
There are a lot of choices – so you can either take the cake and the discounts that come with pre-orders of the Xperia Z2, or wait and see what’s coming down the line from its competitors.
