- 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 the BRAVIA TV engineers goes into the 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 color gamut it gives you the widest color spectrum, so you can view every detail in vivid color.
- Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 - true screen intelligence
The second generation of the acclaimed Mobile BRAVIA Engine, Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 delivers an even better viewing experience by adding real-time contrast optimization to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality color management and noise reduction. Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 is also able to analyze content type and adjust the image accordingly. Adding Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 to the Reality Display makes for the most intelligent HD mobile phone screen.
- OptiContrast and direct touch - less reflective, more responsive
We've eliminated a layer of air in the construction, bringing the touch panel closer to the display. This OptiContrast panel offers clearer viewing with less reflection - even in bright sunlight - as well as creating a seamless black surface when the phone is switched 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 on your Android smartphone is more intuitive.
- Building something bright and brilliant
BRAVIA engineers have discovered that colors more vividly than they really are. That's the kind of knowledge they put into creating brilliant colors for the screens. Get a peek at this precision craftsmanship in the video.
- Exmor RS for mobile - the world's first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones
HDR for photos and videos captures natural colors 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 optimized 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.
- Superior auto, superior photos
From illuminated night views to close-up macro photos, Superior Auto recognizes 36 scene types and adjusts the settings automatically, to help you get the best photos anywhere, at any time. As the default camera mode, Superior Auto turns HDR on or off depending on your scene. HDR mode takes multiple shots with varied exposures and then merges them together to make your photos look natural - even in backlit conditions.
- Exmor RS for mobile - stunning shots in any light
The camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS for mobile is an evolution of the Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and color noise reduction, Sony has 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 colors and capture night images and faces with stunning clarity.
- Minimal yet distinctive - OmniBalance design
The design of Xperia Z is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. The 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. With an enhanced reflection coating on the top, bottom and sides, the Xperia Z actually mirrors the world around you. OmniBalance design balances technology and design, letting you get so immersed in the content that the hardware virtually disappears.
- Quality craftsmanship
The Xperia Z was designed in collaboration with Sony's consumer electronics experts, delivering quality craftsmanship and consistent attention to details. Only premium materials were used throughout, like aluminum for the power and volume buttons and durable tempered glass for the front and back.
- Super slim
Sony has eliminated a layer of air and brought the display closer to the lens, for added touch sensitivity and smaller size. This construction, along with a 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.
- Waterproof and dust resistant
The Sony Xperia Z has an impressive IP55/IP57 rating, making this slim and sleek smartphone resistant to water and dust.
- IP (Ingress Protection) rating
IP 55/57 - what does it mean? The IP rating is a test certification that measures a device's resistance levels to both dust and water. The ﬁrst digit in the two-digit IP rating indicates the level of protection against solid objects, including tiny dust particles. The second digit indicates how resistant the device is to water.

- Snapdragon Quad-core processor - lightning speed performance
We've matched the software with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. This advanced 1.5 GHz Quad-core processor gives you maximum performance and speed, and incredible graphics, without draining your battery. Run multiple apps simultaneously, surf the web with no loading time, and stream videos without a break. The Snapdragon S4 Pro processor is asynchronous, which means each core is powered up and down independently. So you get the precise amount of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don't.
- Outstanding graphics
With the Adreno 320 GPU (graphics processing unit) you play the most advanced and visually stunning 3D games, and browse the web quickly and smoothly.
- 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 Android smartphone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA Mode saves you wasted battery drain. It recognizes when you're not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don't need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.
