Sony Mobile Taiwan has announced the Xperia Z2a for the region, as expected. The model is basically the same phone as the Xperia ZL2 (SOL25) that was announced for au by KDDI in Japan recently. However, one big difference between both phones is that the Xperia Z2a will only have 16GB internal storage versus 32GB for the Xperia ZL2. The Xperia Z2a will support Taiwan’s full-band 4G LTE (700MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz) network, the first Sony phone to do so.
The Xperia Z2a has a 5.0-inch 1080p VA display, a sealed 3000mAh battery, the Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974AB) chipset, 3GB RAM, 20.7MP Exmor RS camera, VGA (0.3MP) front-facing camera and IP55/IP58 certification for dust and water resistance. Sony says that the Xperia Z2a will launch during July in three colours (black, white and turquoise), no pricing has been announced right now. The LTE-enabled Xperia T3 was also announced for Taiwan and is also expected to launch in July 2014.
