Sony Mobile has introduced its new flagship Android smartphone, Xperia Z.
With a 5″ Full HD 1080p Reality Display, Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 13 megapixel fast-capture camera and 4G LTE, Xperia Z has all the specifications expected from a premium smartphone, says the company.
“With Xperia Z, we are bringing over half a century of innovation in TV, imaging, music, film and gaming to create a superphone experience that truly stands out,” said Kuni Suzuki, president and CEO, at Sony Mobile Communications.
Xperia Z’s Reality Display, powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, brings Sony’s TV expertise to the smartphone and delivers an immersive viewing experience.
The smartphone shares capabilities with Sony digital cameras and features Exmor RS for mobile, claimed to be the world’s first image sensor with HDR (High Dynamic Range) video for smartphones.
HDR technology gives clear images against strong backlight, so users can capture razor sharp pictures and videos whatever the conditions, explains Sony.
Xperia Z also includes Battery STAMINA Mode that can improve the standby time by four times or more by automatically shutting down battery-draining apps whenever the screen is off and starting them up again when the screen is back on.
According to Sony, Xperia Z will launch globally in Q1 2013.
