Sony has recently unveiled two new smartphones at IFA 2016 that’s taking place in Berlin and one of them is the flagship Sony Xperia XZ. One of the notable features of this phone is its camera which Sony is promoting as the first flagship smartphone featuring triple image sensing technology. However, the rest of the specs is quite plain. To know whether this new camera feature is worth checking out or not and the Sony Xperia XZ release date UAE, keep reading.
If you are familiar with the design of Sony smartphones, there is not much to look forward to here. The Sony Xperia XZ looks quite similar to some of the other smartphones released by Sony including Sony Xperia X and Sony Xperia X Performance. However, there are some small changes on the back if you look past the form factor. It’s 8.1mm thin and weighs about 161g. Most of the smartphones by Sony are waterproof and this one is no exception. The smartphone is IP68 certified which makes it water resistance and dust proof as well. For those who are willing to wait for the Sony Xperia XZ release date UAE, there are four different colors to look out for: platinum, deep pink, mineral black and forest blue.
Sony is focusing on the camera when promoting this smartphone and according to the company, it’s expected to give users “the best pictures from Xperia yet”. With the Sony’s very popular image sensor, there will be two additional assisting sensors working to give users great pictures even when in motion while also offering true to life colors. We have to wait for the Sony Xperia XZ release date UAE to find out more about this camera and how it works in real life. The front camera is also a good 13-megapixel one which should be good for selfie lovers. However, if you are in the market for the best camera smartphone available at the moment, there is the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and iPhone 6S Plus. These are more or less in the same pricing range as the Sony Xperia XZ Dubai price.
This is where most of the phones released nowadays fail to impress people, the battery life of any phone. Most of the recently released smartphones are aiming for bigger batteries that are bigger than 3000mAh but not the Sony Xperia XZ. Although it’s packed with Quick Charge 3.0 technology, the battery is quite small and is 2900mAh Li-Ion non-removable one. For giving users a smooth Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow experience, the phone is packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. Other notable features of this phone are: 32/64GB optional storage, stereo speakers, fingerprint scanner, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector and NFC. There is the Asus Zenfone Max if you don’t want to wait for the Sony Xperia XZ release date UAE and just want a phone with bigger battery.
The Sony Xperia XZ will cost around AED 2900 when it’s here. It’s expected to show up in the market sometimes in October, 2016.
