HDR video camera
Xperia Z has the world’s first Exmor RS™ mobile with HDR for video, so you can take beautiful stills and movies even against strong light.
13 megapixel camera
The 13 megapixel fast-capture camera and the next-generation Sony Exmor RS™ for mobile sensor makes Xperia Z the Android cell that delivers crystal clear photos wherever, whenever.
Great in all light conditions
With Exmor RS™ for mobile and HDR, Xperia Z takes sharp photos and videos both in lowlight and strongly backlit conditions. The lowlight sensors on front and back make it the first dual Exmor R™ for mobile camera.
Not a pro with settings? Superior Auto mode automatically activates HDR and noise reduction when they’re needed.
Smart, sleek & durable
No one knows how to best pack durability into a beautiful design like Sony. The slim 7.9 mm body, with its reflective glass surface, looks and feels slick, but Xperia Z is crafted to be water-resistant, dust-resistant and tough enough to handle whatever life has planned.
How can we be certain? In order to get the high IP55 & IP57 rating, we submerge Xperia Z under water for 30 minutes – and make sure it’s good as new when it comes out. It’s also resistant to water jets!
Tough as metal
How solid does a precision engineered smartphone need to be? How about as solid as a car? Xperia Z’s frame is made from glass fiber polyamide, the same material that’s used as a metal substitute in automobile parts.
The durable tempered glass on front and back is a lot stronger than conventional glass. And with anti-shatter film on the front and back, Xperia Z is anything but fragile.
Since we can’t take every Android smartphone outdoors, we bring the dust tests to our labs. Before we label Xperia Z dust-resistant, we hang it in a dust-test chamber and make sure its operation is unaffected.
The design is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. Xperia Z has beautiful rounded edges and smooth, reflective surfaces on all sides, which are held together by an innovative skeleton frame.
