Sony announced the original Xperia ZL back in January 2013, but today the company announced a follow-up smartphone in the form of the Xperia ZL2. The new handset offers similar specs to the flagship Xperia Z2, but with a smaller 5-inch display and thinner bezels.
The Xperia ZL2 offers a 5-inch Full HD LCD display, a Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, a 3000mAh battery, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with microSD support up to 128GB. It also packs the same impressive 20.7-megapixel camera found on the Z2 and the same water and dust-resistant design. Sony’s new handset runs Android 4.4 out of the box with the company’s own relatively unobtrusive UI on top.
The new smartphone will launch first in Japan, though Sony still hasn’t announced pricing or a specific release date. We assume a worldwide rollout for the Xperia ZL2 is in the works as well. We don’t know if it will launch in the U.S., though Sony’s Xperia Z2 is rumored to hit Verizon, while other phones have been sold through AT&T and T-Mobile recently.
