Sony Xperia Z1- Specs & Features
Sony Xperia Z1 is powered by a powerful 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 330 graphics. It runs on Android 4.2.2 jelly bean. The device has a 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. A MicroSD card slot is available to expand its storage up to 64 GB.
Xperia Z1 comes with a 5 inch TRILUMINOS full HD display with X-Reality and its display resolution is 1920 X 1080 pixels. TRILUMINOS is very latest technology developed by the engineers of Sony Bravia TV, and TRILUMINOS gives brighter & sharper view.
The device has a 20.7 megapixel primary camera with Exmor RS which produces HD quality images and videos, its front facing camera is 2 megapixel. The phone is dust-proof and water resistant which protects it from rain or dust as the other Xperia phones.
Xperia Z1 comes with a Go connected feature which enables users to connect their cell phone with Sony SmartWatch. It supports 2G, 3G and 4G LTE connectivity.
The Z1 display supports multifinger touch and for getting around pinching, zooming and browsing on the screen, offering overall quick response.
This Android-powered device will definitely be the flagship. According to Taiwan’s E Price, noted earlier credible leaks about new gadgets, the dimensions will be approximately the same as the current flagship Xperia Z, which is due to screen size – 5 inches, with a resolution of Full HD. The design will also be similar, with a glass rear panel, but faces become more rounded than the Xperia Z. Because of this, in our opinion, the smartphone will lose in visual appeal, but in the hand it will be comfortable.
However, the impression spoils well-marked “noise” in the upper right corner of the frame, and a lack of clarity.
Smartphone as Xperia Z, will be “protected”, that is, all the connectors are sealed with plugs with rubber seals. For the same reason, the device will be released on the optional docking station, charge it through the open contacts on the right edge. If you believe one of the snared promotional images apparatus, it will be available in black, white or purple.
In the end, the flagships of Samsung and HTC already have smaller versions – Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and HTC One mini, so why Sony does not support the trend?
