Sony has revealed its latest flagship smartphone at IFA 2016 which is the Sony Xperia XZ along with the similar looking Sony Xperia X Compact smartphone which is a downgraded version of Xperia XZ.
Sony Xperia XZ is coming with a 5.2 inch display which is having Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolutions and unlike the previous Xperia flagship devices, this is neither a unibody handset and nor it is having glass on front and back. Rather, it seems to be crafted from different metal panels but still it is water and dust proof.
Xperia XZ is powered by top of the line 64-bit, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and it is coming with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and it will also support microSD cards up-to 256GB.
In terms of camera, this handset is having a 23 Megapixel rear camera which is equipped with three image sensing technologies (Auto, Laser & RGB focusing). This camera can take photos at max 12800 ISO, plus it has 5-axis stabilization and it is capable of recording 4K videos as well. It features a 13 Megapixel front facing selfie camera which uses a 22mm wide-angle lens at F/2.0.
It runs on Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) and Sony has not announced anything about Nougat update. It has a fingerprint scanner placed on the power-button, which we have already seen on the previous Xperia devices and being a dedicated camera phone it is also having a camera shutter key just along with power and volume buttons.
Xperia XZ packs a 2,900 mAh battery and Sony is also providing a quick charger inside the box.
This handset will be available in a dual SIM variant as well, which will offer 64GB of internal storage compared to 32GB storage as on the single SIM variant.
As on now Sony has not announced the pricing for Xperia XZ but as per the speculations, estimated price of Sony Xperia XZ is going to be £549 which translates to $737 USD or Rs. 48,870/-.
