Xperia Z2 now shipping in Singapore through telcos

by XB on 4th April 2014

in Xperia Z2

Xperia Z2_Singapore_1The official launch date for the Sony Xperia Z2 in Singapore is 5 April, but many people that pre-ordered the handset have begun to pick up their handsets a day early. Singtel, in particular, has been allowing customers to pick up their handsets today. Singtel included a free SmartWatch 2 with pre-orders.

Starhub and M1 will have availability from tomorrow and will include a SmartBand. There is no magnetic charging dock included as we saw in the Taiwanese version. At this stage the Xperia Z2 is only be available via the local carriers (Singtel, Starhub and M1). It will launch contract-free in Singapore through Sony Stores in May 2014 for S$998. See some pictures below of lucky customers that have already picked up their handsets.

    Why just Singapore? O.o

  • christian

    and i must wait for may 5th!

  • take my money, Sony

    am i the only 1 that think the box is significantly smaller compared to the box of the taiwan release ?

  • Shadovv

    Because the Taiwan came with the DK36 dock charger

  • Colby Leong

    You guys are lucky, while we in the states wait patiently for Sony to maybe seed the Z2 to a major carrier. That or we get impatient and buy it through an online dealer. Let us know how it is when you get it

  • take my money, Sony

    so, no Digital noise cancelling headphones for the SG release ?

  • Colby Leong

    uh, well, it’s been in the news for a while that Sony has had delays in building the Z2. So, at this moment few selective areas are receiving the Z2, but the full release should be later in the month. It’s disappointing, considering the head start they had last year over their competitors, but then again Z2 is strong enough to handle some competition.

  • Shadovv

    I think they do (might be wrong)

    Just not the dock

  • Giannikosmo

    I am sooo jealous of this lucky guy!

  • take my money, Sony

    thanks for the info, gonna dig around some more, hope the phone will be release in Malaysia by the end of this month

  • Killuha

    Xperia Z2 likely to hit Switzerland mid April.

  • osamaH Al-Amri

    I know that there are some issues with production. But, why is it just Singapore?

  • Colby Leong

    Your guess is as good as mine. But they were to release in Korea, where the S5 is currently dominating in small quantities. As for Japan, I’m guessing songs going to pull a douche move and give them an upgraded version of the Z2, just like what they did with the Z1.

  • Colby Leong

    Yeah I thought I heard they were including the noise cancelling earbuds with the phone, but I could’ve heard it wrong

  • limo

    Collected Z2 from Singtel earlier, purple phone looks fantastic. The letdown is the earpiece, absolute disappointment, MH401C, cannot bear to open the wrap (not in-ear type). Somemore, the film on the phone cover states noise cancellation as a feature. How ironic.

  • limo

    Correction MH410C

    729,- according to Steg

  • X10

    noise cancellation for the phone, but not for the headphones, lol

  • RealityCheck2013

    I can’t wait to see what the Z3 is like :D

  • Rene Pedroso

    Very bad to have to wait for a product that was announced 2 months ago. I cannot believe Sony still does this. How hard is it to announce a product and release it globally.

  • Amin

    Sony with bullshit Updates…

  • WiZe

    699.- according to and :-)

  • Yai

    I-Mobile Thailand brand has air charger including with package!! Sony doesn’t have!!

  • theskig

    Thanks for the info ;)

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    No noise-cancelling earphones? Lol, what a shame, they’ve told every unit to have them

  • kirakira

    noise cancellation only works for certain earphones. the earphones have to have integrated microphones to determine the background/ambient noises that should be cancelled.

    it does not make sense bragging about noise cancellation as one of the phone’s features if it does not come with the right earphones.

    Wat do u want to say ?

  • ash

    He wants to say shut the Fuck up

  • xperiaDROID

    You must be stupid to believe the stupid answer from a Sony rep when Sony didn’t even make it official about the SP not getting the KitKat update. Did Sony make it official? No right? It’s just a stupid answer from a Sony rep, that person must be drunk.

    SP will get the KitKat update for sure.

  • Mohammed Khired

    i want Xperia play 2…

    i just felt like i wanna say something …. >_<

  • Mohammad Shahroz

    i have Smart watch 2 but not xperia Z2 :-/

  • Well they announced that the design philosophy is going to change

  • jonny

    WHAT they gave us a shitty earpiece for singapore -.-

  • timothy chan

    I like the way you say “How hard is it ” as if you know it… There was a manufacture glitch during the process and therefore delayed the release. There are a lot of factors that also need to be dealt with ( Carriers, marketing, supply and demand per country). Just be patient, if not, ebay can help you.

  • Killuha

    On you also get these for free/Sony Wireless Speaker SRS – BTV5 – Schwarz/ at least I got them. they are listed on digitec for 80 CHF crazy expensiv O.o

  • Rene Pedroso

    HTC ONE (M8) announced after XZ2 and it is out globally. It really isn’t that hard. But for Sony it seems to be. I really don’t have a problem waiting but when Sony states it will be available in March than it should be. You talk about ”Glitch” which is really unacceptable especially since they have been making phones/tech products for like ever.

  • timothy chan

    the glitch was actually a shortage of supplies of parts, which is not the actual error in the assembly so i think it is really out of Sony’s hand. Sony themselves would really like the chance to launch the phone on time to take advantage of the early market share. However they also have to consider more carefully as Sony as a whole, is not really doing well with the TV department losing money for 8 years straight, unlike HTC which are a pure mobile company.

  • Rene Pedroso

    Seriously, that is your response ”Parts” and their other division ”TV’s”. Here is an example of a company that has different products (one of them being a smartphone) and when they say they will be available (they actually give a specific date) they are. ”Apple”. Personally I do not like Apple products but they get it right (as far as releasing their product) ALL the time.

  • timothy chan

    That right there is the problem. How long as Apple dominate the market? And then the aggressive marketing from Samsung. Sony should really plan carefully ahead. I am a fan, but I am not defending it for I also think that it is a problem and I agree. But I also think that there is a reason behind why they didn’t take the obvious lead of the market this year when they announce it before the Galaxy S5. Sorry for my bad English and please understand I am not looking for a fight.

  • Rene Pedroso

    hahahahahahaha, we are just having a discussion. No worries my man. For myself it is really hard to understand how Sony struggles when they have the best products????????? Ughhhhhhhhhhhh

  • timothy chan

    Thanks for understanding :D, I like Sony myself but I hate their customer service representative. Maybe if they can give us a solid date of release rather than keep us guessing part of the hate will be eliminated.

  • limo

    I went to check out mdr-nc33lc (bundled with my VAIO DUO 11) on the phone. Now I know the phone has built in power to the earphones so it can work without external power source. Similarly for the Duo11. The result is charming. Ambient noise from TV totally shut out even before the normal warning message from phone if you increase pass half way mark.

  • x10

    i would rather pay more for the overall package (phone, NC headphones, dock) than paying less for a phone that come with those headphones, the only reasonable explanation is the telcos or Sony regional company took it out or was planning to sell it separately

  • Andy

    The Z2 has a screen that could challenge Samsung’s Galaxy S5 for best
    display on the smartphone market, thanks in part to special tech Sony
    has included from its television lineup that makes colors really pop.
    And if you have decided to become a proud owner of this device, perhaps you’re in the market for a solid and beautiful protection case as well.

    Very interesting thing I just come across at – I could choose any number of items (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.
