According to a new report, Sony’s upcoming flagship, the Xperia Z2 might be going through some components supply issues. This could apparently lead to the shipments of the handset being delayed, which might prove to be a massive blow for the Japanese manufacturer. Of course, none of these claims are confirmed as of yet, so take it with a pinch of salt.
It is said that Sony is facing issues procuring the components such as the processor and baseband chips required by the smartphone in adequate quantities, which is reportedly causing this delay. The source has clarified that Qualcomm is not responsible for the delay as it doesn’t supply those components. The smartphone was originally expected to break cover in March, but that date has now been pushed to April 11 which is also when Samsung launches the Galaxy S5 in global markets.
If this report is true, the smartphone could be available in limited quantities when it becomes available in markets of Asia and Europe next month. Of course there’s still some time left, so we expect a company like Sony to figure things out and make the necessary adjustments by then.
