Sony Xperia Z Leaked: Jelly Bean, Quad Core, 13MP Camera

Reports are flying in left and right of a new high end flagship Sony device, and from the specs we are seeing, Sony really means business with this device. The device is dubbed the Xperia Z (aka LT30), and the leaked specs we’re seeing for it are right up there with high end devices like the Galaxy S3 and HTC One X.

Unfortunately, we don’t have pics of the device, but amnaytech has reported that the mystery phone will run the following specs:

  • Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean
  • 13 megapixel camera
  • Caméra frontale capable de faire de la visio-conférence en 720p.
  • 1080p HD video recording
  • Screen 4.6 "HD (Bravia?) 1280x720p resolution.
  • High-speed performance
  • Weight of 140 grams.
  • High quality slow motion video capture and playback
  • Auto flash smartly determined by distance from your subject
  • Navigating will be handled by three capacitive on screen buttons
  • The handset will be plastic
  • 1GB of RAM memory
  • 16 gigs of internal storage
  • The battery is non-removable
  • 4.6-inch HD display
  • microSIM card
  • Support for NFC.
  • Quad-core processor (reportedly Snapdragon)

Sony has informed Phonearena that the marketing campaign for the new handset will include a product placement featuring it in the upcoming James Bond film, Skyfall. The device is rumored to show up in August of this year.

Sony NEEDS a flagship device, and if it is indeed running a quad core processor with Android Jelly Bean out of the box, perhaps Sony will have a chance to FINALLY become a serious contender in the Android smartphone race.

What do you guys think? Could this be an Android device you would consider buying?

    I'd certainly consider it. The Xperia S is a bit less than what I'd want so this is welcome news indeed.

    Agreed. Pretty surprising news actually. Glad to see Sony getting back in the game!

    Not bad. Waiting for the Nexus 10 though.

    I want the Nexus 10 as my next tablet as well, but I will also hold off for the next Nexus phone as well. I'm starting to get to a point to where I think I'll only buy Nexus devices! **gulp**

    Yup. I've been with Motorola since the Droid X. I like the phones but with their unlockable bootloaders and the wait time for OTA upgrades I want to make the switch. I have 11 months until my next upgrade. Can't wait for the next Nexus phone. I know Google bought out Motorola so we'll see what they do with that in the mean time.

    I got ya. To be honest, I expect BIG things coming from Motorola now that Google owns them. They have finally have a chance to develop software for their own hardware (ala Apple). Lets hope they don't let us down!

    I welcome any Electronic Company joining the ranks as an Android Smart Phone manufacturer (& SONY is no slouch when it comes to technology). The Xperia Z (aka LT30) sound large & heavy (more like a tablet then a smart phone); but I'm sure more will be revealed in time ....

    It's also getting harder to find Android Smart Phones which "are not plastic" (an exception is the HTC One S) ... even the new Incredible 4G (as small as it is) has a plastic cover which I told the Verizon Clerk that it "ought to come with a free otter box case!" (lol) ....

    Another great article Eric
