Sony brought to the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas its latest flagship Android-based smartphone, the Xperia Z, and indeed managed to impress everyone.Featuring a large 5-inch full HD touchscreen display, the new device packs a quad-core processor inside, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, all meant to provide users with a great experience while on the go.
According to the Japanese mobile phone maker, the new Xperia Z packs the “best of Sony in a smartphone.”
The precision-engineered Full HD mobile phone was built with attention to each detail, corner, piece and pixel, the handset vendor also notes.
Sony Xperia Z comes with world's first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones, while also being both dust- and water-resistant.
It runs under Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system at the moment, but it will be upgraded to Android 4.2 in the not too distant future (might see the upgrade before even being officially released on shelves).
In order to provide users with a better look at the phone’s great features, Sony has published a load of promo videos, some of which can be seen embedded below (via Android Police).
In these clips, you can have a look at the handset’s design, its razor-sharp and super bright display, or the features and capabilities of its Exmor RS for mobile camera.
There are also one-touch screen mirroring features that can be admired in this device, along with its great performance capabilities, fueled by the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor.
Sony’s new device is expected to become available for purchase around the world starting with February.
