Lately Sony confirmed that the company would be organizing a media event on April 4th to launch Xperia XZs – a high end smartphone in the Indian market. The Xperia XZs was introduced at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona last month, along with Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra smartphones.
The main unique point of the device is its 19MP primary camera at the back, which enables users to record slow-motion videos in 720p resolution. Similarly to the last flagship Exmor RS sensors, the new sensor is of 1/2.3” type and is packed with an f/2.0 aperture lens. Besides, it is also included Triple image sensing technology, Predictive Capture, and 5-axis image stabilization feature, which is specifically for recording shaky free videos. As for the front, there is a 13-megapixel resolution snapper with a 22mm wide-angle lens, ISO6400 and f/2.2 aperture.
The Xperia XZs features a 5.2-inch full HD display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor along with Adreno 530 GPU for handling graphic. The phone is supported by a 4GB of RAM and available in two internal storage memory options including 32GB and 64GB. Besides, users can use a microSD card, which can expand the memory up to 256 GB. Additionally, the device has IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. The smartphone runs on Android 7.1.1 – the latest version, with 2900mAh battery capacity with Qnovo Adaptive Charging tech as well as Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, which is slightly disappointing.
On the connectivity, the Sony Xperia XZs supports Wi-Fi 802.11 ac dual-band MIMO, A-GPS/GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type C, and 4G LTE. Other key features include a host of Sony audio technologies such as DSEE HX, High-Res Audio playback, digital noise cancellation, fingerprint scanner mounted inside the power button on the handset’s right side.
