Sony Xperia Z smartphone is apparently coming in India on March 6th. Sony Mobile India has recently posted a teaser at their Facebook page which reveals the release date of launching the new flagship smartphone in the country. Though the teaser does not show any detail but it is quite confirm that the Xperia Z will be the device to be launched in the Indian market. As we have already reported, the Xperia Z along with the Xperia ZL likely to be available in the country in the month of March, now Sony has officially shown more light on the launch.
The Xperia Z officially unveiled in the month of January, the smartphone already gained much popularity due to its 5-inch full-HD Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. The Xperia Z smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, Adreno 320 GPU and 1GB of RAM. For photography, Sony has provided a 13-megapixel Fast Capture camera on the rear with Exmor RS sensor which also supports HDR mode, a 2-megapixel camera is also available on the front for video conferencing and VoIP calling. The Xperia Z comes with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system out of the box and the company has also assured that Android 4.2 update will be available soon.
Key Specifications of Sony Xperia Z:
- 5-inch full-HD (1920 x 1080) Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2
- 13MP rear camera, 2MP front camera
- 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, Adreno 320 GPU
- 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD card support

The Xperia ZL, on the other side, is quite identical to the Xperia Z but unlike the Xperia Z, the Xperia ZL does not feature IP55 and IP57 certification for water and dust resistant capabilities. Of course the Xperia ZL will cost cheaper than the Xperia Z and we presume that Sony will launch both the smartphones in the country at the same event.
However, Sony is still mute on revealing the price detail of the Xperia Z, it is expected that the smartphone would feature a price tag between Rs.40-45K. We’ll of course cover more on the Xperia Z availability in the Indian market, so stay with us.
