Sony reveals Xperia ZL2 as five-inch Xperia Z2 with same specification

updated 02:44 pm EDT, Thu May 8, 2014

Smaller display, body in ZL2, keeps processor, RAM, rear camera

Sony has launched the follow-up to its Xperia ZL in Japan. Where the original effectively copied the Xperia Z and slimmed the device down, the Xperia ZL2 performs a similar trick with the Xperia Z2, switching out the 5.2-inch 1080p display for a 5-inch version in a smaller body, but still manages to keep similar specifications to its full-size counterpart.

Inside is a quad-core Snapdragon 801 with 3GB of RAM, reports Phone Arena, along with a rear 20.7-megapixel camera with a 1 2.3-inch sensor and G Lens. The same Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, and NFC connectivity options make an appearance, as does 32GB of storage with microSD expansion, LTE, GPS, and a 3,000mAh battery. While it shrinks in size and loses the glass-backed appearance of the Z2, the ZL2 will instead offer a plastic back in a choice of black, white, and turquoise colorings, and retains its water and dust-proofing.

Sony is shipping the Xperia ZL2 in Japan by the end of this month for an unknown price, and it is not clear if it will be spreading to other markets in the future, just like the Xperia ZL.
