One of the most anticipated terminals, apart from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, has been the Sony Xperia Z1 or also known in some places as Sony Honami. It is a high-end terminal with which the company wants to show that it also has a place in this market.
Sony Xperia Z1 has a 5 inch screen has a resolution of 1080p and that gives you some excellent 443 ppi. This is due to two technologies using the screen, on the one hand the Triluminos technology and, on the other, the X-Reality.
Inside we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 model MSM8974 quad-core processor, which works at a frequency of 2.2 GHz. It is accompanied by an Adreno 330 graphics processing unit, the usual standard of RAM for this type of phone (2 GB of RAM, with the exception of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which has 3 GB) and an internal storage of 16 GB expandable through microSD cards.
One of the more strained aspects of the Sony Xperia Z1 has been its rear camera. Finally the rumors are confirmed and it will equip a 20 megapixel resolution camera. The sensor is an Exmor RS CMOS and is Sony G-branded. A little more detailing, this lens has an opening f2.0 and angle of 27 mm. The classic button at the side of the phone could of course not miss to activate the camera and take the picture.
Battery and operating system
The battery of this smartphone is 3000 mAh, quite correct capacity, and we will see what is able to make because it has enough work to support, especially in what refers to the screen and processor.
Sony has decided to leave Android 4.3 Jelly Bean aside and equip his Sony Xperia Z1 with Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean. We assume that soon they will be launching the Android 4.3 update.
Sony Xperia Z1 maintains practically intact its lines and is very similar to the Sony Xperia Z and Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Its thickness stays in 8.5 mm, with a length of 144 mm and a width of 74 mm, while the weight is 170 grams. As we have already mentioned, it maintains the physical button for the camera, something that distinguishes it from other smartphone brands.
In addition, the Sony Xperia Z1 is resistant to dust and water. It is possible to submerge up to 1.5 meters for a few minutes without suffering any damage.
Price and availability
Sony has announced that the Sony Xperia Z1 will be available for sale this month of September around the world. It could be acquired in colours black, purple and white, and the price in Europe is 699 euros.
