Claimed to be the pinnacle of Xperia series, Sony has officially announced Xperia XZ which has been designated as the series’ new flagship device. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, the phone’s main attraction is its rear camera that has been equipped with several technologies that were adapted from Sony’s years of imaging expertise.
Built with a 23-megapixels 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS sensor for mobile alongside a 24mm wide-angle G Lens, the rear camera also comes with laser auto-focus sensor for accelerated focusing capability. Not enough with that, Sony has also included a RGBC-IR sensor into Xperia XZ’s rear camera in order to provide the camera with rich color output.
Furthermore, the Xperia XZ’s rear camera is also equipped with 5-axis image stabilization which is said to be a world’s first. A BIONZ mobile image processing engine complete the camera setup for Xperia XZ together with another 13-megapixels Exmor RS mobile sensor and 22mm wide-angle f/2.0 lens for its front camera.
As for other part of the water-resistant smartphone, it also features 5.2-inch full HD Triluminos display, 3GB of RAM, and 2,900mAh battery. Pre-installed with Android M, Xperia XZ will be made available as 32GB single SIM variant and 64GB dual SIM model this coming October although their prices have yet to be revealed at the moment.
