Last night, Sony launched the Xperia Z2 phone and the Xperia Z2 tablet in the UAE. The event was held at DIFC where Sony introduced not only their new flagship phone and tablet but also a range of mid to low level devices such as the Xperia M2, the Xperia T2 Ultra and the Sony Smartband.

Following the presentation, I got the opportunity to have a quick chat with Rüdiger Odenback, the Vice President at Sony Mobile in the Communications in the UAE about Sony’s decision to release hero products every six months as well as about their accessories and the new smartband.

Following that, Mansoor Ahmed, Product Manager at Sony Mobile gave me a demonstration on the new Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone listing his favorite features from the new device. Mansoor really likes the camera and 4k recording as well as the stereo speakers on the Z2 along with other things that you can see in the video below.

The Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone will be available across all leading retailer in the UAE in the later half of April at AED/SR 2699 while the Z2 tablet will retail for AED/SR 2499.
