Sony Xperia Z.
ncased in an all-black chassis, though Sony plans to offer the phone in a selection of multiple color options, the Xperia Z is a real looker. The device's body is crafted in premium metallics with a back panel made from smooth glass. Also highlighting the Xperia's premium feel is its screen, which is set flatly within the device's trim bezel. This edge-to-edge construction helps the already large display to appear even bigger.
The Sony Xperia Z's impressive qualities are more than skin deep though. Under the hood you’ll find a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor driving the phone’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.
To shoot images, the handset features a 13-megapixel camera with a backside illuminated sensor. That means the camera app has a useful HDR mode to tackle still shots under low-light conditions. One interesting twist is that Sony claims the Xperia Z can also enable its HDR mode while capturing video, the first smartphone I’ve heard to do this. Other camera features include a burst mode, panorama, plus a bevy of special filters and effects.
Since this is a global handset, the Xperia Z operates on GSM networks but should connect to 3.5/4G HSPA+ infrastructure for quick data access. The Xperia's high-capacity 2,700mAh battery is not removable, but the device does have a microSD slot to add additional memory.
It also comes packed with a full HD 1080p display, a new and upcoming features in smartphones, as TV's are upgraded to 4K HD.
With Xperia Z, we are bringing over half a century of innovation in TV, imaging, music, film and gaming to create a superphone experience that truly stands out,” said Kuni Suzuki, President and CEO, at Sony Mobile Communications. “With great specifications, Sony’s media applications, One-touch functions and outstanding battery life, Xperia Z is well positioned for leadership in the smartphone market. By putting smartphones at the heart of our strategy, Sony is enabling people to create, enjoy and share content and experiences like never before.

Looks like its a late Feb or early March release date. The phone has certainly wowed its audience at Vegas when it was first revealed. Wonder how well it will last however when the S4 and iPhone 5S are released in the not too distant future.
