Sony Mobile has just confirmed it will bring its Xperia Z Android flagship smartphone in Australia on February 20.
However, it appears that the smartphone will only be available at Sony’s brick and mortar stores as well as online. Although all major carriers confirmed they would offer the Xperia Z, the folks over at AusDroid claim it won’t arrive until next month.
This means customers who wish to grab the Xperia Z for the full price will be able to do so beginning February 20, while those who do not wish to spend a fortune for this device will have to wait for a few more weeks in order to get it from one of the Australian major carriers.
There are no details on price tag yet, but we expect more info on Sony’s pricing for Xperia Z will surface in the next few days, so stay tuned for more updates on this one.
For those unfamiliar with the Xperia Z, the smartphone ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean platform out of the box and packs a powerful 1.5 GHz quad-core processor inside.
The smartphone is IP57 certified, so expect it to be dust- and water-resistant. According to the manufacturer, Xperia Z is water proof up to 1 meter and 30 minutes.
Another selling point of the phone is the enhanced 13-megapixel camera on the back, which features autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording. There’s also a secondary 2.2-megapixel camera in the front for video calls.
Sony Xperia Z embeds no less than 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
Last but not least, the Xperia Z boasts an impressive 5-inch full HD (1080p) Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 display that features shatter proof and scratch-resistant glass.
