The Sony Xperia Z2 was launched at MWC 2014 and safe to say there are many who are looking forward to the handset. After all if you were impressed by the camera on the Xperia Z1, chances are you will be pleased by the camera on the Xperia Z2.
However if you were looking to get your hands on the phone, it could be launched slightly later than expected. According to an earlier report, it was suggested that the Xperia Z2 could be delayed due to supplier issues, and Sony seems to have corroborated those claims by removing the “pre-order” button for the device on its website.
It was not mentioned as to what those supplier issues might have been to cause the delay of the Sony Xperia Z2, but apparently only limited stock will be made available at first while the rest of the shipment could be pushed back to a later date, sometime around late April or even as far as early May.
Of course it is entirely possible that the removal of the pre-order button might not have anything to do with delays. It could simply be that pre-order quotas have since been maxed out which has prompted Sony to disable it in order to avoid disappointing customers who might have pre-ordered the device only to have it delayed.
Either way this alleged delay of the Xperia Z2 is actually an interesting coincidence because Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is reported to be facing potential delays as well due to issues manufacturing the phone’s camera. Assuming the reports are true, this would make it two highly-anticipated Android flagship smartphones that have experienced a delay in 2014 already.
