Sony Xperia Z1
With the best of Sony packed into a sleek waterproof1 body, the Xperia™ Z1 is a remarkable smartphone. Sony’s digital camera and TV technologies make it unlike anything else.
The essential tech specs.
With a huge 3,000mAh battery, the Sony Xperia™ Z1 will happily run all day. You can get up to 850 hours of standby time, plus up to 15 hours of talk time. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, which runs at 2.2GHz, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean so it’s incredibly fast. The Z1 has a 5” full HD display that has a super sharp pixel density of 441 pixels per inch and is powered by Sony’s TRILUMINOS™ and X-Reality technologies. There’s a 20.7MP camera with a massive 1/2.3” sensor, wide angle lens and F2.0 aperture for digital camera quality photos. You’ll also get 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable with a microSD card.
Exceptional camera performance.
The Sony Xperia™ Z1 is designed to have the best camera in a water proof1. So Sony gave it a 20.7MP, 1/2.3” Exmor RS™ for Mobile image sensor, which on its own makes it one of the best camera phones available. But Sony threw all of its digital camera knowledge at the Xperia™ Z1, giving it a Sony G Lens with a F2.0 aperture for brighter photos and a 27mm focal length for wide-angle shooting. All that technology adds up to a smartphone that’s capable of taking digital camera quality photos.
Newer tech for a better screen.
So you can view your photos in stunning quality, the Sony Xperia™ Z1 has a 5” full HD display that’s powered by some of Sony’s TV technology. There’s TRILUMINOS™ technology, which gives true, authentic colours and delivers a significantly wider colour gamut, giving you a far more natural and vivid viewing experience with a heightened sense of depth. While X-Reality™ improves texture and detail by reducing noise and image interference and takes low-resolution images and enhances them to create a high-resolution picture. All of this hardware and software means you get a superb visual experience, whatever you’re doing.
Waterproof and super durable.
To make sure the Sony Xperia™ Z1 can hold up to the tests of life, it's been designed for durability. It’s been given IP55 and IP58 certification, meaning it's dust resistant and waterproof1, so you can use it in the rain or at the beach. In fact, IP58 is the highest rating for protection against water so it’ll survive being submerged in up to 1.5 metres of water for half an hour. The Z1 should survive a few knocks too. Both the front and back panels are made from durable tempered glass, coated with an anti-scratch film. The frame meanwhile is made from tough glass fibre polyamide, which is so strong that it's often used as a metal substitute in cars.
The latest and greatest processor for the fastest phone going.
To ensure the Sony Xperia™ Z1 will be future proof it has been given the new generation Snapdragon 800 processor. This incredible quad core chip runs at an impressive 2.2GHz, so can easily run any apps or games that are currently available on smartphones. It’ll even be able to keep up as they get bigger and better in the future. There’s also 2GB RAM on the Xperia™ Z1, which means you’ll be able to multitask with ease. The amazing hardware is supported by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean so you’ll get a beautifully fast and smooth experience as you dart through apps and menus effortlessly.
