One thing we hate about smartphones is the time lapse between their announcement and their actual availability in retail stores. And if you’re non in the States or Europe, it only gets worse. Well thankfully Sony won’t make you go through that torment as the company has announced that it will release its flagship Xperia Z in 60 markets globally this week.
Announced back at CES, the Xperia Z comes with a 5-inch 1080p display ,a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. It hosts a slew of other features including a 2330 mAh battery, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage, Bluetooth, WiFi, LTE, NFC and FM radio. The phone is also IP57 certified meaning it is resistant to water and dust. Also there’s micro SD slot for expandable memory.
Sony did not reveal however which 60 countries are going to get the phone. So it is anybody’s guess but we expect Sony to cover all the major markets globally.
