SONY XPERIA Z





Xperia Z - the best of Sony in an Android smartphone



A screen as impressive as HDTV – Full HD Reality Display
Feel like you’re there with the razor sharp and super bright full HD screen. Xperia Z brings you the highest level of HD available – 1080 progressive scan, for incredibly crisp pictures and no jagged edges. Expertise from our BRAVIA® TV engineers goes into our mobile screens, to bring you the same quality you’d expect from a top quality HDTV. The 5” full HD Reality Display also has very high pixel density – 443 pixels per inch, for razor sharp pictures – and superior brightness. And with the wide colour gamut it gives you the widest colour spectrum, so you can view every detail in vivid colour.
With the Xperia Z Android mobile from Sony viewing has never been this impressive.


True Screen intelligence – Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2
The second generation of our acclaimed Mobile BRAVIA® Engine, Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 delivers an even better viewing experience by adding new real-time contrast optimisation to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality colour management and noise reduction. Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 is also able to analyse content type and adjust the image accordingly. Adding Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 to the Reality Display makes for an intelligent screen – one that adapts automatically to display your content in the best way.
Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 - true screen intelligence.


(1) Contrast enhancement
Contrast in images and video is enhanced by making the darkest parts slightly darker, which brings out details in the picture.

(2) Colour Management
Colour saturation is increased for specified colour ranges, which makes the colours deeper and more vivid. And the intelligent Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 software reproduces skin colour exactly as it appears to the naked eye.

(3) Noise reduction
Distortion and noise is reduced when streaming low-quality video from online sources, such as YouTube. Noise is reduced both to individual frames and between frames, for clearer viewing.

(4) Sharpness filter
Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 applies a sharpness filter to increase the overall detail level in the image. This is done by enhancing the edges and contrast without increasing noise.

Less reflective, more responsive – OptiContrast™ & Direct Touch
We’ve eliminated a layer of air in the construction, bringing the touch panel closer to the display. This OptiContrast™ panel makes for less reflection and clearer viewing – even in bright sunlight, as well as creating a seamlessly black surface when the phone is turned off.
By eliminating the sensor layer and integrating the sensor on the lens, we’ve managed to increase the responsiveness of the screen. So your touch is more effective and the experience is more intuitive.

Exmor RS™ for mobile – the world’s first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones
HDR for photos and videos captures natural colours in any light. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology used to capture clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, the camera captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo.

Xperia Z introduces HDR to video, so that you can film even in high contrast situations, like in front of a window or with the sun behind your subject.

Always the right setting – Superior Auto
Now it’s always easy to get a great shot. With Superior Auto, you don’t have to know the ins and outs of camera settings to make use of them. In Superior Auto mode, the camera combines Scene Recognition with high quality and high performance image processing technology (HDR and noise reduction) to automatically shoot with the optimal settings. And your device is automatically optimised for 36 different scenes, so you always get the best shot.

Stunning shots in any light — 13 MP camera with Exmor RS™ for mobile
The 13 megapixel camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and colour noise reduction, we’ve created a camera that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise – even in challenging lighting conditions. You’re now also able to reproduce objects in more vivid colours and capture night images and faces in stunning clarity. Exmor RS™ for mobile includes HDR video, for clear shots even when your subject is backlit.

World’s only dual Exmor R for mobile camera
We’ve included the Sony Exmor R™ for mobile sensor on the full HD front camera, so you can take self-portraits or chat in lowlight conditions as well. And both the front and rear cameras support HDR photos.

Never miss a moment — Burst mode
When you want to capture high intensity action, turn on burst mode. With the burst mode you can shoot an unlimited number of images at 10 frames per second and 9 MP resolution.

Take pictures wherever you are — Water and dust resistant
With our water and dust-resistant smartphone, you can capture sharp photos and videos even in wet or dusty conditions. You can also enjoy capturing great photos while you are recording a video, and you have loads of picture effects to give it that extra touch. Finally, don’t forget to enjoy the pictures you’ve taken in various destinations on the truly intuitive Globe view.

Find your memories in no time — Super-fast pinch to zoom
Our intuitive scaling mechanism is unique to Sony and makes it easy to find the picture you’re searching for in your album – quickly. Or search your personalised globe to find shots taken and tagged with specific locations.

Minimal yet distinctive – OmniBalance design
With Xperia Z, we introduce our new OmniBalance design. The design is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. Xperia Z has subtly rounded edges and smooth, reflective surfaces on all sides, which are held together by an innovative skeleton frame.

Both the front and back are made of glass, with a seamless surface. Together with enhanced reflection coating on the top, bottom and sides, Xperia Z actually mirrors the world around you. OmniBalance design balances technology vs. design, letting you get so totally immersed in the content that the hardware disappears.

Quality craftsmanship
Xperia Z was designed in collaboration with Sony consumer electronics experts, for quality craftsmanship and consistent attention to details. Only premium materials were used throughout, like aluminium for the power and volume buttons and durable tempered glass for the front and back.

Super slim
We’ve eliminated a layer of air and brought the display closer to the lens, for added touch sensitivity and a smaller size. This construction, along with a new component layout and skeleton frame allows for a slimness of 7.9 mm.

Premium design, outside and inside – Sony unified UI
Whether you’re on a Sony smartphone or tablet, you’ll meet a consistent user interface on your devices and in all your Sony Media apps.

Water and dust resistant
We tested the Xperia Z to make sure it can keep going even after 30 minutes under water. It can even withstand water jets. The high IP55 & IP57 rating means you can use it in the rain, take photos by the pool and easily clean it off from everyday spills and dirt.

We even put Xperia Z in a dust chamber for rigorous testing, to make sure its operations were unaffected.

Significantly improve battery life with Battery STAMINA mode
Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you’re not actively using them. All those apps that you have on your phone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA mode saves you wasted battery drain by recognising when your display is off and turning off functions you don’t need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you wake up your Android smartphone, everything is up and running again.

Get only the important notices
With Battery STAMINA mode, Wi-Fi and data traffic are disabled during standby, but you still receive incoming calls, texts, and alarms. And since everyone has different needs, you can easily customise which apps you want to receive push notifications from even in standby mode. Facebook notifications on or off? It’s up to you.
