Sony has always tried its best in being at par with Apple and Samsung in the smartphone department. For 2013, Sony hopes to change its fate with new high-end phones that it will be releasing. The main device for Sony is its Xperia Z which packs quite the amazing punch. Others have even called it as the best phone the company has yet to sell. Its shell is made of refined mirrored paneling for its sides and its back while a power button being the only switch found on the device. A 5-inch Reality Display touch screen completes the package with its 1080p which promises 443 dpi. It boasts of a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip which is partnered with 16GB of storage. If you are worried about memory space, then the microSD expansion will ease your worry.
The device is quite pimped up since it packs a 13-megapixel rear-camera and a 2-megapixel one in front. Combined with the hardware is the Bravia Mobile Engine 2 in order to ensure beautiful display as well as photos and videos. The company is pulling out all the stops since the Xperia Z is said to pack the much anticipated Exmor RS sensor for the most delighting HDR video-capturing experience. To top it all off, Sony did not only vamp up its camera hardware but also improved its algorithms since the Xperia Z is already capable of a 9-megapixel burst mode.
As for the software, we can expect the Jelly Bean Android OS. Of course, since it is from Sony, there is a handful of Sony entertainment services which includes an interesting feature which monitors battery stamina. Apps will automatically be switched off when the phone is in sleep mode. Connectivity includes LTE since the device has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip. It also has NFC capabilities, allowing the phone to connect with newly released HDTVs.
