One of the worst-kept secrets is officially announced as Sony has formally launched its Xperia “Zed”— also known as the Xperia Z and ZL smartphones. The devices are comparable to other flagships by featuring a stunning 5-inch 1080p Reality Display with the Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 for incredible brightness and clarity, quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and One Touch, which allows the ability to wireless share multimedia content across all sorts of devices. Oh and best of all— the Xperia Z and ZL smartphones each feature a sleek and clean design, yet the Xperia Z is completely dust and water-resistant, while the Xperia ZL has a more compact body.
We’re awaiting additional details for when the devices will be available and on what carriers here in the States— though we’re aware that both models will be available “in select markets” sometime in Q1 2013. In the meantime, hit the break for the full presser– but don’t forget to check out our nonstop CES coverage here.
