Sony officially announced its waterproof Xperia Z1 smartphone with 20.70MP camera and 1/2.3-inch sensorPosted on September 5th, 2013 | No comments
After a lot of rumors and conjectures in the past few months, after the previous flagship smartphone release of Xperia Z, Sony moments ago finally announced the Xperia Z1 at the ongoing IFA in Berlin.
Exactly like the rumors said, the Sony Xperia Z1 takes some of the highlights of the original Xperia Z – the gorgeous OmniBalance design, a 5″ 1080p screen, water resistant body – and kicks everything else into overdrive. The major crowd puller is the 20.7MP camera with G Lens and big 1/2.3″ sensor, but the display tech is new and improved and the Snapdragon 800 chipset is the current chart-topper. This new device could be considered as the bomb of Sony’s preparation for the IFA.

There’s no word yet on exactly how much Sony will demand for this high-spec beast, but it’s safe to assume that it’ll be roughly on a par with the Xperia Z. But it should be not any less than £500 when it goes on sale in the UK in the coming few weeks.
