Washington: As Sony takes the wraps o its flagship smartphone Sonny Xperia Z2, now device goes back for pre-orders is several European countries, will ship in May.
It’s worth pointing out that the Sony Xperia Z2 went back up for pre-order after a month of absence, but with a noticeably changed shipping schedule.
While previously Sony said it would ship it latest flagship in April, the new Xperia Z2 pre-order page now shows that shipping will commence in May.
It seems like Sony Xperia Z2 launch is not very smooth, at least not in the UK. As previously mentioned, the smartphone was initially slated to launch in April, but various Sony online stores closed pre-orders all of a sudden.
Sony said at the time that it has experienced overwhelmingly high demand for its latest flagship, but denied having any supply issues and assured pre-order customers that the Xperia Z2 will ship on time, in April.
Subsequent reports, however, hinted that the UK launch was pushed back by a month, and it now seems that timeframe was accurate.
The company’s UK online store now lists the Xperia Z2 as up for pre-order, with deliveries set to start in May. The company still offers no reasons or explanation for this delay, but at least the smartphone is now available for pre-order again.
Sony is offering the Xperia Z2 with the same promotions that were in place before it stopped taking pre-orders. UK customers, for instance, will get a free Sony SRS-BTX300 NFC speaker when they pre-order the £599.99 smartphone.
When it comes to the U.S. launch, however, Sony has yet to offer any details regarding when its new Xperia Z2 flagship smartphone will make its debut.
