The Xperia XZ is all about its camera, a 23-megapixel wonder with laser auto-focus, RGBC infrared sensor which automatically adjusts the white balance based on the light source in the frame. There is 5-axis image stabilization taken from the company’s HandyCam series of camcorders. It uses Sony’s 23-megapixel Exmor RS sensor underneath a f/2.0 lens. It also comes with 4K video shooting capabilities.
On the front, it has an 13-megapixel shooter with maximum ISO going up to 6400 enabling the phone to take brightly lit photos even in poor light conditions.
But beyond this, the Xperia XZ is quite an ordinary smartphone, a bit on the expensive side. Like many other flagships, it is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 530 GPU. There is 32GB of onboard memory.
The phone has a 5.2-inch LCD display with Full HD resolution and uses Sony’s TRILUMINOS technology.
Unlike the previous flagships, this one is only water-resistant, not water-proof. There’s also fingerprint reader on the side, doubling up as the power button.
It is powered by a 2,900mAh battery. There is Qnovo adaptive charging that protects the board from frying by monitoring and adjusting the current flow.
The phone released in IFA 2016, Berlin’s consumer electronics show. There’s no news as to when it will land in India.
