The Sony Xperia Z specs were finally revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this week.
The new Sony flagship smartphone will feature a 5-inch, 1080p display NFC (near-field-communications), 13-megapixel main camera, and a water-resistant exterior.
Other specifications on the Xperia Z include a 1.5GHz asynchronous quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 2GB RAM, one- touch mirroring and 4G LTE.
Sony also introduced the public to the new Xperia ZL, which is another high-end smartphone with the same display camera and processor as the Xperia Z. It comes with one-touch mirroring and 4G LTE and has a maximized display with the highest ratio of screen to phone size.
Sony is expected to reveal more information on both of these devices sometime during CES.
The company will also be releasing the Xperia E sometime this year.
The U.K. retailer known as Carphone Warehouse stated that the smartphone will be arriving on shelves the second month of the year and that it will also start carrying the handset around the same time.
Sony recently unveiled the Xperia E as its latest midrange addition to the Xperia lineup.
Specifications on the device include a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 3.5-inch 480 x 320 touchscreen display, a 3.2-megapixel rear facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 1530mAh battery, and Sony's mobile software that includes Walkman apps and its Timescape user interface.
The specs on this device are a bit underwhelming, as Sony seems to be aiming at a market that is not looking for a very flashy Android smartphone. Sony also did not feel the need to include a front-facing camera on the device.
The draw of the Xperia E happens to be the fact that it comes running Android 4.1, JellyBean straight out of the box. Other than that, it will need an extremely low price tag in order to attract Android enthusiasts.
