After the first units of the Xperia XZ was spotted on the shores of the United Kingdom and the United States, Australia will be the next to get hold of Sony's latest flagship Smartphone. It will be available on October 20 with pre-orders currently ongoing.
The Xperia XZ remains to be one of Sony's top bet in their resurging effort to climb the tense ladder dominated by Sony and Apple. As part of their legacy, the Xperia XZ is still endowed by toughness, as well as a slick and sophisticated design that will instantaneously attract users who are looking for a jack of all trades device. In addition, the Xperia XZ will reinforce Sony's X Performance lineup: a trio of mid-range phones with high-end specs.
As a premium handheld, however, Sony has put in some of the niftiest specifications on the inside as we as the outside of the Xperia XZ. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the XZ incorporates a rather unique ALKALEIDO metal chassis that's beautifully crafted to shadow the "monolithic rectangle designs of the Xperia Z and the softer edges of the X."
Sony also packed the Xperia XZ with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, and Adreno 530 graphics chip, 3GB of RAM and a lather of Corning Gorilla Glass to protect its 5.2inch Full HD with curved glass and X-Reality display screen.
Further specs include a USB Type-C, a whopping 23megapixel Exmor RS with triple image sensing technology, Predictive Hybrid Autofocus plus a 13megapixel front facing clicker, 32GB of onboard storage that's expandable up to 256GB via micro SD card. Sony still retained its water-resistance design with the Xperia XZ with its Unified Design.
As for its availability, CNet reported that the Xperia XZ can be purchased through Sony, Telstra or JB Hi-Fi starting October 20. It will come with an AU$999 sticker price, while color options are Mineral Black (Telstra JB Hi-Fi). Sony will carry the same hue and a Forest Blue variant. There's also a "Deep Pink" variant available in the UK through O2.
