After weeks of leaks, Sony have officially revealed their new flagship phone, the Sony Xperia Z.
Claiming it delivers the “ultimate viewing experience”, the handset packs in a 5-inch full HD Reality Display, running at a full HD resolution of 1080 x 1920. Using Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine 2, it even employs some of the same technology that goes into Sony’s TV sets too.
The Xperia Z is also the first handset from Sony to use a quad-core processor, using a 1.5GHz variant backed up with 2GB of RAM.
Running Android Jelly Bean 4.1, the Xperia Z also sports a 13.1MP camera with 1080p video recording capabilities, with a 2.2MP front facing camera onboard too.
All the usual conenctivity options are onboard too (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS) as well as super-fast 4G data connectivity and NFC capabilities. 16GB of storage comes as standard which can be expanded via the microSD card slot.
Looking very good then. Here’s hoping it’s as good in the hand as it is on paper.
