This phone has been rumored for a long while now and for about that long, it’s a phone that I was personally hoping Sony would announce. I do love my Xperia Z1, but the major complaint I had was the physical size and well, a more compact version is my dream phone. And well Sony have gone and done it. Made what is possibly my dream phone all the high end features of a super phone, but in a pocket friendly size!
All the specifics are in the press release below, but here are my highlights:
Full Powered – 2.2ghz Snapdragon 800 processor with 2gb of RAM
Full Camera – 20mp G-Lens Sony Exmor RS Camera
Full Connections – 4G / 3G / 2G / Wifi / Bluetooth 4 (LE) / Etc…
Small and Sharp – 4.3inch 720p IPS Display
Waterproof – Water and Dust Proof just like the Z1
Battery – Best in class 2300mAh battery
Colourful – Available in 4 Colours
Honestly, I can’t get to get some hands on time with this beauty. We’ll have our review up as soon as we possibly can! 😀
