Sony Xperia Z - The best of Sony in a full HD smartphone

Feast your eyes on the incredible 5-inch, 1080p HD Reality Display

The new Sony Xperia Z brings the best of Sony in a smartphone with a full HD 5-inch screen, a 13.1-megapixel fast-capture camera and much more.

In 2013 the smartphone becomes the superphone. The new Sony Xperia Z with Android Jelly Bean epitomises this transition by combining the best of Sony to create a beautiful handset with everything the modern mobile user could ask for.

With a 5-inch, Full HD Reality Display, the immensely powerful quad-core Sony Xperia Z sets a mightily impressive yardstick for watching video content, playing games, viewing photos and browsing the web.

With a screen resolution of 1920x1080p, viewing in high definition means exactly that. From the brains behind Sony’s Bravia TV range, the improved Bravia 2 engine intelligently optimises imagery for content, making your viewing experience more vivid than ever before. Combined with a pixel density of 443ppi - the highest ever recorded on any smartphone – and a brightness rating of an incredible 500cd, images are crisper, clearer, sharper and brighter.

That beautiful screen is complimented by a 13.1-megapixel rear-facing camera, complete with the same Exmor RS sensor as featured in Sony’s awesome compact camera range, bringing stunning and detailed photos in any lighting conditions.

The Fast Capture tech also allows the Xperia Z can go from sleep-to-snap in under a second, meaning you’ll never miss that once-in-a-lifetime shot. Continuing the HD theme, the Xperia Z sensor also shoots crystal clear video at full HD 1080p.

With all of that extra HD power along with a larger, brighter screen a 1.5GHz quad-core snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB RAM ploughing through the most arduous tasks, some serious battery power is required to keep this handset ticking throughout the day. The Xperia Z obliges with a gigantic 2220mAh power pack, while the new Battery STAMINA Mode helps to extend the lifespan by shutting off 3G connectivity and other functionality after 15 minutes of inactivity.

And, adding yet another string to the bow of the Sony Xperia range, the Xperia Z is IP55 dustproof and IP57 water-resistant certified. You can dunk this handset in 1 metre of fresh water for a full half an hour, and it’ll emerge unscathed.

The sleek 7.9mm-thin Xperia Z brings a host of features we’ve grown to love in the most recent Xperia handsets, including the Sony One-touch NFC and One-touch mirroring, which makes it easy to transfer content to other devices, send video and audio to your TV and NFC equipped speakers.

So, meet the Sony Xperia Z – the next generation of smartphone, featuring the very best of Sony in one pocket-sized device.
