Sony has been on a role lately. In fact starting from 2013 the company has released some fantastic looking phones. Their latest Android powered flagship, Xperia Z2, is receiving positive reviews from across the web. Sony also makes exclusive phones for the Japanese market. Sometimes these phones end up being a precursor for a phone the company launches for the global market. Today Xperia A2 has gone official in Japan and it looks pretty sweet. Even if you’re not from Japan, this is a phone that may interest you in the coming months.
Xperia A2 is a mini version of the Xperia Z2 which was launched earlier this month. The phone follows the same design language as its big brother. The back however is now of matte finish instead of gloss. The specs, interestingly, are identical to the Xperia Z1 compact, which too was launched earlier this year. The Xperia A2 comes with a 4.3-inch 720p display, a quad-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 20.7MP camera with Sony G lens and Exmor R sensor. Even the battery is 2300mAh, identical to Z1 compact. The only difference here is that the Xperia A2 is 0.2mm thicker than the Z1 compact.
Sony launched the Xperia Z1 compact in Japan under a different name a few months before they launched it for the global market. There is every possibility that they may do the same this time as well. Even though it has hardly been 6 months since the launch of Z1 compact, Sony has already said that they plan to launch more flagship phones in one year.
