Around a month ago, we caught first wind of potential Xperia Z2 delays and limited stock when the Hong Kong launch event was canned. Sony Mobile Hong Kong has today confirmed that the Xperia Z2 will now launch in June 2014. No reasons were cited for the delay. However, given that the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 launch this month, such a long delay isn’t good news for Sony.
The other issue for Sony, is that by the time you get to June, IFA 2014 is only three months or so away, which is when Sony traditionally launches new handsets and potentially the Xperia Z3. So we imagine that by the time the Xperia Z2 does launch in Hong Kong it will have to be priced reasonably keenly to attract customers.
