The Sony Xperia ZL2 is now official in Japan. This is the second generation of the phone and just like the first one, it's a version of the current flagship with much slimmer bezels and smaller footprint.
The phone carries the 5" 1080p display from the original ZL complete with the Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 and X-Reality engine.
Under the hood, there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AB chipset with a 2.3GHz quad-core processor and 3GB of RAM. Internal storage is 32GB and a microSD card slot completes it with support of up to 128GB additional storage. The ZL2 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Sony's Xperia UI on top.
Surprisingly, the Sony Xperia ZL2 is a bit larger than its predecessor. Measuring 137 x 72 x 10.8mm (compared to 131.6 x 69.3 x 9.8 mm of the Xperia ZL). The smartphone is also 16 g heavier, tipping the scales at 167 g.
At the back of the Xperia ZL2 we find the same 20.7MP shooter as in the Xperia Z2. It's capable of recording 4K video (3,840 x 2,160) and still of up to 5,248 x 3,936 pixel resolution. The battery is a 3000mAh Li-Ion non-user-removable unit.
The connectivity front is chock-full with options such as the latest Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.

The Xperia ZL2 is available in the standard black and white colors as well as a turquoise one, if you want to stand up from the crowd. The phone will soon launch in Japan, and we presume a worldwide premiere isn't too far away.
