Sony appears to be having some teething troubles with its new Xperia Z2 flagship, which made its debut in Singapore last week. Not only is the device prone to overheating when recording 4K video, but cooling it down in a bowl of water could be fatal for those who received a defective device with gaps in its chassis.

Fortunately, Sony is already aware of both issues, and the Japanese promises it is investigating them.

Sony Xperia Z2

The launch of the Sony Xperia Z2 has been reportedly delayed until June in Hong Kong according to the company’s Facebook page. The smartphone has already seen delays in parts of Europe due to supply chain related issues, so it was only a matter of time before the launch was delayed in other regions too.


On paper, the Xperia Z2 sports the same 20.7MP Exmor RS sensor with an F/2.0 G Lens camera as its predecessor — the Xperia Z1. However, Sony has made a lot of underlying changes and tweaked its image processing algorithms to deliver better performance with its latest flagship handset. Initial reviews of the handset suggest that the Xperia Z2 camera can stand its own against the likes of the HTC One (M8), Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and the LG G Pro 2.

We recently saw the Sony Xperia Z2 getting root access even before it hit the markets. And now, its bigger sibling the Xperia Z2 Tablet has received similar treatment along with a ClockworkMod based custom recovery being flashed onto the tablet.


The Xperia Z2 might not be available in all the regions across the world but that has not stopped Sony from rolling out a software update for the handset. The update fixes quite a few bugs and issues present in the stock firmware of the handset whilst also bringing some much needed enhancements.
