Sony showcases phone with ultra-HD video recording
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Sony is borrowing innovations from its audio and camcorder businesses and incorporating its new Xperia Z2 smartphone with noise-canceling technology and ultra-high-definition video recording.
Noise cancellation works with an in-ear headset sold separately, while the Z2's built-in camera can capture video in so-called 4K resolution, an emerging standard that offers four times the details as current high-definition video.
Monday's announcement came at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, Spain.
Despite favorable reviews, Sony Corp. phones haven't had much traction in an industry dominated by Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co.
With the Z2, Sony is trying to innovate on hardware, while many of the groundbreaking features in rival devices have been in their software.
