For the most recent flagship device, Sony kind of took its most recent devices and merged them together. Even the name of their latest device shows that it’s a combination: Xperia XZ is a mix between the Z series phones and the more recent X series devices that were announced just half a year ago at an event held in Barcelona, namely Mobile World Congress.
You can see that the new device borrowed its large screen from the Xperia Z. They also took from there a better camera and a much more generous battery, but they did add some changes that differentiate it from the Xperia phones. The new things consist in rounded edges with a flat design at the top and the bottom. The body is made of an aluminum alloy and it has a special finish on it so that it will look like new for a long period. Also, it is useful in keeping grime at bay, which is a real issue with previous models that were based on glass rear panels.
The specs are really awesome! The device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quadcore chipset and it offers 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory. Of course, you can extend the internal storage with a microSD card. The battery is a 2900 mAh one that includes the QuickCharge feature and it should be enough to last for a day.
Sony also offers you a Stamina Mode that decreases the performance and kills the features that take up lots of power in order to save you some battery. You also get a fingerprint sensor on the power button on the right side, though Sony announced that the devices coming to the US will not get this feature. Needless to say, this had some fans quite disappointed.
