Sony Xperia XZ officially announced

Sony logoAccording to an earlier leaked photo, it seems like Sony has a new phone in the works, and sure enough the company has made it official. Dubbed the Sony Xperia XZ, this is one of two new smartphones that Sony has debuted at IFA 2016, and if you’re after a smartphone with a great camera, this could be it.

According to Sony, the Xperia XZ will sport the “fastest, smartest, and most advanced” 1/2.3-inch 23MP Exmor RS image sensor. Sony is calling this “triple image sensing” technology that will make for quick photos even under low-lighting conditions, and will apparently be blur-free, but we guess we’ll have to take it for a spin ourselves to really see how it performs.

It will sport a 22mm G Lens, 5x clear image zoom, and will be able to shoot up to ISO 12,800. Its front camera is also no slouch with a 13MP 1/3-inch sensor. As for its other specs, the Xperia XZ will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage that can be expanded, and will also support LTE connectivity.

Sony has also adopted a curved display, although not necessarily in the same way as Samsung, as you can see in the images above. The Xperia XZ will have a Gorilla Glass 4 5.2-inch TRILUMINOS display with a Full HD resolution. To top it off, Sony is also boasting that the Xperia XZ will be water resistant. Unfortunately there is no word on pricing but it is set for a launch in the US come 23rd of October.
