Top: Sony unleashes it’s 2013 flagship smartphone
We were anticipating it since long and finally it’s out! Sony has announced it’s flagship smartphone for the the year 2013 and it’s none other than the rumored Xperia Z/ZL. The smartphone features almost all the specifications that were predicted earlier and we guess Sony might just have a winner at their hands.
Sony Experia Z
Both the smartphones, Xperia Z and ZL are almost similar in their specifications and feature all the top-end specifications which you would see in every flagship device this year. The Xperia Z features a 5-inch Full HD (1080p) display which is almost a benchmark for all the flagship smartphones in 2013 and is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM. IT comes with 16GB of internal storage with a micro-SD card slot for storage expansion, which is quite a relief as more and more flagship devices now a days tend to miss out on an additional card slot
The Sony Xperia Z sports a 13-megapixel camera with an “all-new” sensor and is the first smartphone to introduce Video HDR (High Dynamic Range). HDR in images basically combines 3 images taken at different exposures into a single image which has best detailed parts of each oh the image and somehow, Sony has managed to introduce this feature in videos as well. The snapper on the Xperia Z now also allows to click pictures while recording videos. The front of the smartphone also get’s a 2.2 megapixel camera.
