Sony Mobile has confirmed that it is struggling to meet demand for its recently announced flagship smartphone the Xperia Z2.
Speculation that it was having problems emerged last week when it stopped accepting pre-orders from customers and was reportedly unlikely to be able to ship devices until April, with very limited stocks available.
A spokesperson for the manufacturer told Mobile: 'Xperia Z2 will be available in the UK during April and we are expecting to deliver to all consumers who have placed a pre-order through our key partners."
What happens to people who ordered a phone from a partner not considered to be "key" to Sony Mobile was not expanded on.
The spokesperson added "We are working tirelessly to maximise stock levels in April but currently we do not expect to meet the high demand across all our sales channels."
The phone comes with a 20.7 megapixel camera that has been matched with 1/2.3-type Exmor RS for mobile CMOS image sensor, Sony's G Lens and BIONZ for mobile image processing engine.
