Sony’s latest flagship Xperia XZ announced at IFA 2016

At IFA 2016, Berlin, Sony has just announced their next flagship offering, Xperia XZ. The company is betting on its latest camera technology to wow the customers. Let’s dive into specs.

The Xperia XZ unfortunately  packs only 5.2 inch full-HD display with Snapdragon 820 processor and only 3 GB of RAM. The base storage starts at 32 GB or 64 GB with an option to further expand it via micro-SD card slot. The camera department packs a 23 MP rear shooter with Exmos RS sensor, 1/2.3″ sensor, f/2.0 lens, Predictive Hybrid AF, 5-axis stabilization, 4K video recording capabilities. The impressive 13 MP selfie snapper boasts a 22 mm wide-angle f/2.0 lens and 1080p of video recording.


The phone runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 out of box and carries 2900 mAh Battery with Qnovo’s Adaptive Charging technology. Other goodies include Dual SIM options, IP68 certification, fingerprint scanner integration on power button (Just like Xperia Z5) and USB Type-C.

The Sony Xperia XZ will be available globally starting from October in three color variants – Forest Blue, Mineral Black and Platinum colors. No word on pricing yet.

Looking at the specs sheet and features, one could feel that Xperia XZ doesn’t really offer anything new to differentiate itself from the plethora of Android smartphones out there. It seems just another half baked attempt by the Japanese company. What are your thoughts about Xperai XZ? Do you agree? Sound off in comments.
