Sony said it is not expecting to meet demand for its recently unveiled flagship Xperia Z2, following earlier reports that it had stopped accepting pre-orders for the smartphone.
According to UK publication Mobile, the vendor said that while it is “expecting to deliver to all customers who have placed a pre-order through our key partners”, it does not expect to meet “the high demand across all our sales channels”.
The company did not state which of its sales channels it considers key, although the report notes that the device has picked up broad operator and retailer support in the UK.
It is also unclear how this will impact Xperia Z2 availability in other markets, but it seems unlikely that the supply constraints will be limited to one country.
Unusually, Sony stopped taking pre-orders for the smartphone after initially opening registrations.
