Product description
Announced Jan 8, 2013

The Xperia Z follows the 2013 trend towards larger and higher resolution screens on smartphones and comes with a 5-inch 1080 display.From an imaging point of view the 13MP camera with Exmor RS for mobile image processing and HDR video sounds very promising but the rest of the specsheet reads well too. The device is powered by a Snapdragon™ S4 Pro quad-core processor and runs Android 4.1. NFC technology allows for wireless sharing of content with compatible devices including, speakers, headphones and TVs. The very high dust and water resistance (IP55 & IP57) is unusual for high-end smartphones.
