Sony on Monday introduced its latest Android smartphone, the Xperia Z1 Compact, a 4.3-inch monster of a device. Powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB RAM, the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean handset packs a killer 20.7-megapixel camera. The display measures 4.3-inches, features a 720p resolution and offers Sony’s TRILUMINOS Display for mobile with X-Reality technology. The battery is listed at 2300mAh and offers Sony’s Battery STAMINA Mode which extends the life of each charge. In other words, it doesn’t have any weak spots.
As you might expect, the Xperia Z1 Compact features a host of Sony applications and services.
- PlayMemories Online – a cloud-based image and video service that is integrated into the Album application. A new ‘All Sync’ feature enables users to instantly auto-upload all of their photos without storage limitation.
- “WALKMAN” and Movies applications provide access to more than 22 million songs on the “WALKMAN” app through Music Unlimited and more than 150K movies and TV series on the Movies app through Video Unlimited from Sony Entertainment Network.
- TrackID TV – enhances your TV-viewing experience as it lets you search, share and explore information from broadcasted TV shows such as cast & crew, biographies, filmography or show related Tweets.
The waterproof Xperia Z1 Compact will launch globally from February 2014 in a variety of color (black, lime, white, pink) options. Look for pricing and carrier details in the coming weeks.
