Samsung is not the only having a grand time launching their new mobile devices at IFA 2013 in Berlin. Sony Mobile is rocking their own party too, by way of a Sony Xperia Z1 smartphone announcement. The Sony Xperia Z1 is a slim, waterproof smartphone with all the bells and whistles that you’ll look for in an advanced smartphone.
But what Sony’s biggest bragging point concerning the Xperia Z1 is that it features the company’s proprietary “G Lens,” with a 27-mm wide angle and a F2.0 aperture, a 1/2.3-type CMOS image sensor Exmor RS for mobile and BIONZ for mobile image processing engine. Simply said, the phone’s 20.7-MP camera can deliver the same quality and performance as a traditional digital camera. Of course, you’ll get to enjoy the power and performance that the phone’s technical specs can provide.
Speaking of specs, the Sony Xperia Z1 is pretty loaded as well. It has 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processors, 3000 mAh battery, 4G LTE capability, 2GB of RAM, 16GB on-board storage, microSD card slot, and a 5-inch screen display.
The Xperia Z1 is also loaded with useful apps including Sony WalkMan and Movies apps, and TrackID. It is also loaded with 5 Sony movie titles and an exclusive movie access pass to the digital release of Sony Pictures’ “Elysium” and two month free trial of Sony’s Music Unlimited streaming service.
The Sony Xperia Z1 is scheduled for global launch this September. No pricing information is available as of yet.
