still not into plastic wrapped, mega-sized handsets? then perhaps this new premium offering from Sony, the Sony Xperia Z1 smartphone, might just be right up your alley. clad in the usual beautiful Sony styling, the Xperia Z1 smartphone takes on Sony’s OmniBalance design featuring an one-piece aluminum, topped off with tempered glass on both the front and the back. and like any Sony ‘premium’ phone in recent times, it is built to be water- and dust proof with IP55 and IP58 rating to its name. powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip clocked at 2.2GHz and 2GB of RAM, the handset features the latest GPU and dual ISP for supers graphics performance and a high-capacity 3,000 mAh battery that works alongside Sony’s Battery STAMINA Mode so you can get the most out of this gorgeous device.

key highlights include a 5″ Full HD TRILUMINOS Display with X-Reality touting 441 pixel density, a 20.7MP Exmor RS paired with a wide-angle G Lens and BIONZ for mobile image processor, one-touch sharing, listening, mirroring and backup via NFC, plus a suite of popular connectivity such as Miracast, DLNA, as well as MHL. naturally, the Xperia Z1 smartphone has a host of other obligatory features such as Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, 16GB internal memory – expandable via microSD card slot that supports up to 64GB, and the garden variety of sensors, which most of us are familiar with – so we shan’t go into details with respect to those. global launch is expected to be within this month, though specifics such as exact date of availability and pricing weren’t offered. check out a few more look in the image gallery below.
