    The smartphone also comes with 2GB RAM, front camera, NFC and Android 4.1. Company has promised an upgrade to Android 4.2 soon.xperia-z-final
    According to Sony, Xperia Z features a unique OmniBalance design with subtly rounded edges and smooth reflective surfaces on all sides. It is also quite rough and tough with tempered glass and anti-shatter film on the front and back as well as dust and water resistance.
    Sony has also revealed that it will be launching Xperia ZL in some markets instead of Xperia Z and ZL comes with same features as Z, but in a smaller form factor.
    Company seems to have worked quite a lot in making NFC more useful and One Touch functions are a showcase of that.
    “One-touch functions enable consumers to easily share music, photos and videos from their smartphone to an array of NFC-enabled Sony devices, including speakers, headphones and now TVs,” Sony noted in a press release.
    On the battery front too, Xperia Z includes Battery STAMINA Mode that can improve the standby time by four times.
    “With Xperia Z, we are bringing over half a century of innovation in TV, imaging, music, film and gaming to create a superphone experience that truly stands out,” said Kuni Suzuki, President and CEO, at Sony Mobile Communications. “With great specifications, Sony’s media applications, One-touch functions and outstanding battery life, Xperia Z is well positioned for leadership in the smartphone market. By putting smartphones at the heart of our strategy, Sony is enabling people to create, enjoy and share content and experiences like never before.”
