Sony has kept the market happy, but somehow, the spotlight has mostly been shining on other greats, but that is all set to change. Enter the Xperia Z, the latest addition to Sony’s lineup of smartphones, which is set to be among the greatest in the market. It dwarfs the iPhone 5 with its colossal 5” screen, whose resolution is as high as you would imagine it to be.
With dimensions of 139x71x7.9mm, the device is as slim as it is sleek, which is good to see that the extra bulk seen with its predecessors has been forgotten. The full HD display with a pixel density of 1080×1920 is meant to give an unmatched viewing experience. Under the hood, the Xperia Z runs the latest version of Android Jellybean, and is powered by an S4 Qualcomm processor and an Adreno 320 GPU. With 2GB of RAM and a host of connectivity options that include LTE and NFC, the Xperia Z aims at keeping you connected, and in the fastest way.
A 2.2MP front-facing camera is present, with the principal camera having an impressive 13.1MPs. So when you are not browsing through the internet like you own it, you will be taking breathtaking stills, or recording HDR video. The phone will be sustained by a 2330mAh battery, which is sadly non-removable, but promises over 40 hours of music playback. There are no official details of its pricing, but it will be available for purchase by the end of this first quarter.
