xperiaz1_261331508283_640x360Available from September 2013 is the brand new flagship smartphone from Sony – the Sony Z1.

Successor to the Xperia Z, the Z1 has some very impressive features, in particular the super sized 20.7-megapixel camera and its Full HD 5-inch screen with Triluminous display technology upon which you can admire your photos.

The Z1 is beautifully design and manufactured from premium and hand-wearing tempered glass combined with a single and seamless aluminium frame. The handset comes in black, white and an attractive shade of purple and, like the Xperia Z, it has been designed to be hard-wearing, waterproof and dust resistant. You can even take photos underwater providing you’re in freshwater and you don’t submerge it more than 1.5 metres.

The Xperia Z1 camera has been built and designed using the same technology that Sony uses for its compact digital cameras so it really does boast some superb features. As well its large 20.7-megapixel capabilities, it also has an award winning G Lens, an intelligent mobile image processing function, SteadyShot for filming high quality video and a Superior Auto feature to help you take beautiful photos without having to worry about altering the settings.

The video playback function of the Xperia Z1 also makes it stand out from the crowd thanks to its ultra-high quality display and X Reality software which vastly improves the look of average quality recordings. It also displays previously watched video as a window in the background so it makes searching for clips and films a whole lot easier.

The Z1 also packs in some power with its Qualcomm Snapdragon Quad-core 2.2GHz processor and a 3000mAh battery which gives it a respectable talk time of almost 14 hours. Memory-wise it comes with 16GB of onboard storage which can be expanded up to 64GB with a microSD card and 2GB of RAM.

The Z1 will run on the new and pre-installed Android Jellybean 4.3 and it also comes with some of Sony’s popular apps including the PlayStation app and a Social Live app which enables you to stream live video via you Facebook feed.
