Sony announces flagship Android smartphone Xperia Z1, has 20.7 megapixel cameraSeptember 5, 2013 0 Email article | Print article
Sony Mobile has unveiled its late 2013 flagship smartphone named Xperia Z1. The device looks similar to its predecessor, Xperia Z, but thicker, wider, heavier and taller. This is due to a 20.7MP RS sensor with the company’s award-winning “G Lens - F2.0 and wide angle 27mm. What this means that the photos should be more detailed, sharper and the camera should be able to take photos faster – although we wouldn’t know this for sure, until the device hits the market.
According to the press release by Newswire, the specs are given below:
- Screen: 1080 x 1920 pixels, 5.0 inch “Triluminos panel” screen (441 ppi)
- Operating System: Android 4.2.2
- Storage: 16GB + SD Micro (up to 64GB)
- Memory: 2GB RAM
- Processor: Quad-core 2.2 GHz Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800
- Rear facing camera: 20.7 MP with 1/2.3” sensor size, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, image stabilization, HDR, panorama
- Front facing camera: 2MP 1080p
- Battery: 3000 mAh
As usual, Sony hasn’t confirmed the price yet, but based on the device’s impressive specs, it is expected to be as expensive as the Xperia Z when it first launched.
