The Smartphone can be booked via Amazon India, Sony outlets and select retail outlets from October 1 while deliveries will commence from October 10, 2016. Those who pre-book will get Smartband Talk-SWR30 worth Rs. 8900 free with the device.
Besides Smartband, the device comes bundled with Modern combat Gameloft credits worth Rs. 780, free subscription of Sony LIV worth Rs. 349 and Quick charge UCH12. The Sony Xperia XZ will be offered in three colors which are forest Blue, Platinum and Mineral Black. In terms of design, it wears a polished metal rear panel and comes with IP65/68 certification for dust and water resistance. Fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button.
The Sony Xperia XZ has 5.2 inch Triluminos display having screen resolution of 1920*1080 pixels, X-reality mobile picture engine, dynamic contrast entertainment and corning gorilla glass protection. It utilizes a quad core Snapdragon 820 processor clubbed with Adreno 530 GPU and 3GB of RAM. This dual Sim model comes with 64GB internal storage which can be further expandable up to 256GB using a Micro SD card.
The Smartphone has got some serious camera punch with 23MP rear camera supporting predictive hybrid auto focus, laser AF, Exmos RS sensor, f/2.0 aperture and 4K video recording capabilities. The XZ is claimed to be the first Smartphone to boast 5-axis video stabilization feature. A 13 MP other camera is there for Selfies and video calling that comes with 22mm wide angle lens, f/2.0 aperture and 1080p video recording.
The device supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac MIMO, bluetooth 4.2, NFC, GPS/GLONASS, USB type-C port and hybrid dual Sim slots. A 2900mah battery completes the package which supports Qualcomm quick charge 3.0 technology. This Smartphone is another example of wrongly analyzed market trends as it cost more than Samsung Galaxy Note 7, LG G5 and even HTC 10. We wonder who’s going to buy this device when you get 6GB RAM and same processor for almost half of its price.
