With rumors about Sony’s next flagship making rounds since quite some time now, it was no surprise when Sony unveiled Xperia Z and Xperia ZL smartphones at CES.
First up, the Sony Xperia Z features a 5″ 1080p display with Bravia 2 engine. Underneath the hood there’s latest Snapdragon S4 Pro with a quad-core 1.5GHz Krait processor, Adreno 320 graphics and 2GB of RAM. Sony has also packed a huge 13MP Exmor RS censor capable of 1080p video recording with. Leaving no stone unturned there’s also a 2MP front facing camera. To power it all there’s a 2330 mAh battery. the phone is also IP57 certified meaning it is resistant to water and dust. Also there’s micro SD slot for expandable memory. there’s also the usual Bluetooth, WiFi, LTE, NFC and FM radio.
Xperia ZL on the other hand is similar to Xperia Z in every way except for the IP57 certification and a sightly different design. the battery is also slightly bigger at 2370 mAh but that shouldn’t make any big difference. The phone comes with 16 GB inbuilt memory.
The phones should be available by March and will come with Android 4.1.2.
