Xperia Z2 soars into trio of carriers this Saturday

The launch of any new smartphone is newsworthy, but when it's the followup to one of Sony's most popular Xperia models, the arrival is likely to be hailed by Android fans even in far away lands such as Singapore.

Sony Mobile Singapore announced on their Facebook page this week that the manufacturer's latest Xperia Z2 smartphone will be touching down at three different carriers this Saturday, April 4.

The shiny new handset will be available in Singapore this weekend from M1, Singtel and Starhub, who will all be offering a free Sony Smartband wearable for each customer who picks up an Xperia Z2, while supplies last.

While the announcement likely comes as good news to Xperia fans, exactly how much the devices will cost remains a mystery until the Saturday launch, when each of the three carriers will reveal pricing details.

According to Sony Mobile's Singapore website, the Xperia Z2 will be available locally in May unlocked and carrier-free for SG$998 (about US$790, UKĀ£476, AU$856) through Sony Stores and Sony Centres.

On Monday, Sony announced plans to bring the Xperia Z2 to North America, but curiously left Americans out of the picture with its plans to launch on Canada's Bell network next month.

The US delay appears to stem from manufacturing problems that have kept the Xperia Z2 from rolling out globally as quickly as Sony would probably prefer, much to the frustration of Xperia fans everywhere.

Sony launched the Xperia Z2 at this year's Mobile World Congress, following up the success of the earlier version with a tasty new 5.2-inch model a mere five months after debuting the Xperia Z1.
