In light of the approaching release of its Xperia Z3 smartphone, Sony has drastically dropped the price of the upcoming phone's predecessor, the Xperia Z2.
Those who are still interested in getting the Xperia Z2 will be glad to know that the phone can now be purchased in the United States for only $579.99, which is definitely a much lower price compared to the original amount of $749.99.
This is not the first time that Sony had adjusted the Xperia Z2's pricing. As a matter of fact, back in July of this year, Sony has slashed $50.00 off the phone's price. But this time, a $170 drop in price is really surprising news, albeit a delightful one especially for those still thinking of purchasing the device.
The price drop is obviously a ploy by Sony to get people to buy the Xperia Z2 before the Xperia Z3 is released. Although the Z3's release date is not exactly clear yet (Sony said it should happen sometime this fall), why not take this opportunity to offload the Z2 while the company still can?
For those who are not familiar with the Sony Xperia Z2, here is a little refresher. The device features a 5.2-inch 1920 by 1080 display screen, and comes with a 20.7-megapixel rear camera as well as a 2.2-megapixel front camera. With regards to hardware, the Sony Xperia Z2 uses a 2.3 GigaHertz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, with 16 gigabytes of internal storage, 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and a microSD card slot. It also has a 32oo mAh battery and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat. It is available in black, white, and purple colors.
Many may question whether it is too soon to replace the Xperia Z2 with a newer model. But those who closely follow Sony may point out that the Japanese phone maker has always had a fondness for updating or upgrading its flagship device every six months or so.
Also, even if the Xperia Z2 may no longer be the newest Sony offering, the device still fits nicely with T-Mobile and AT&T in the United States.
