Sony Xperia XZ



1. Introduction

Having a spectacular response from the users from all over the world, Sony enlarges Sony Xperia X series smartphones. And now company proudly presents King of kings Sony Xperia XZ, a new beginning, and innovation. The Xperia XZ is perhaps the most dashing smartphone that has been surfaced by the company out of Sony X family smartphones. The handset offers immaculate specs, impressive features and gettable price in Pakistan range.

As far as the design, outlook and style of the smartphone are concerned, well, the newcomer is nearly identical to former Sony Xperia X. Physical appearance shows that it is a 5.2 inches 1080 device with almost same length and width but a bit thicker device compared to former Xperia X smartphone (8.1mm compared to 7.9mm of the Sony X). But you got to keep this in mind that your previous X partner was a 5.0 inches device, but right now you are getting a 5.2 inches device, so it is as compatible in size as so many master flagships from many other odd companies. A metallic finish from every angle makes the smartphone even more dashing and attractive.

The newcomer support multi-touch up to 10 fingers and IPS 68 certification. 70.9% screen-to-body ratio is more than impressive and handy making it believed that you might see your smart phone’s display to its extreme best. 424 ppi pixel density and all that you may be looking for. It is for the first time that we see Sony using Corning Gorilla Glass4 instead of Sony’s previous traditional Scratch-resistant glass. This may be due to providing Sony lovers a smartphone that runs with all the features and credibility that any other smartphone company offers. X-Reality Engine and Tri-luminos display technology have been added for Sony’s users for best and smooth interface.

As of the prevailing traditions of almost all the smartphone companies, Sony too is going for Single SIM (Nano-SIM) or Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by) flavors which are marvelous. Android OS, v6.0.1 (Marshmallow) which is planned to be upgraded to v7.0 (Nougat) later on runs on IPS LCD quite smoothly and impressively. Leaving Mediatek aside, Sony now uses Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset and on it is embedded Quad-core (2x2.15 GHz Kryo & 2x1.6 GHz Kryo) processing unit. And now once again we see Sony using such a credible and blazingly fast Kryo series processor which is a great thing to go with.

For superb graphics, Sony goes for Adreno 530 GPU. Sony inducts two flavors in this new Sony Xperia XZ series with concerns to memory. Users will get a 32GB variant and 3GB RAM, but other one gets massive 64GB storage inside it. Both the flavors somehow support massive up to 256 GB micro SD card expansion (dedicated slot). The smartphone is packed with world’s most dashing 23MP primary camera with superb f/2.0 aperture so that users may get incredible videos and snaps results. Other camera features include phase detection and laser autofocus, 1/2.3" sensor size, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama and an LED flashlight too.

Video capturing is a 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30fps, 1080p@60fps so you can capture 4K videos anywhere and anytime whatever are the weather conditions. Sony though has improvised so many changes in their 2016 smartphones so right now we see the same different changing once again. 13 MP Selfie camera having f/2.0 aperture is something unbelievable. Isn’t it? Stereo speakers, Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic capability, a vast range of wifi networks 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, hotspot, Bluetooth v4.2, A2DP, aptX, LE, USB v2.0, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector; USB Host, Sensors Fingerprint, Fast battery charging (Quick Charge 3.0) capability, Non-removable Li-Ion 2900 mAh battery, Mineral Black, Platinum, Forest Blue, Deep pink color range and some dashing features.
