Sony Xperia Z1 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

The Sony Xperia Z1 is truly one of a kind. It’s one of the first smartphones with a cutting-edge, ultra-powerful Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 800 processor at its heart, and is the first smartphone to feature Sony’s signature digital imaging technology, providing industry-leading image quality. 

First-Rate Versatility

In addition to the advanced 20.7-MP Sony mobile image sensor and BIONZ image processing engine, Sony brings a cool new camera experience tailored for creativity called “Smart Social Camera.” It features Xperia camera apps accessible direct from the viewfinder. With Social Live, even if friends and family can’t be there, they can still share in your most important events with live streaming direct to Facebook and you’ll see likes and comments right on the viewfinder, in real time.

First-Rate Durability

This phone is tough. Thanks to a tempered glass screen and one-piece aluminium frame, the waterproof Xperia Z1 can handle whatever life throws at it, including a dip in a pool.

First-Rate Clarity

It’s a good thing that the Xperia Z1 is waterproof, because when people see this phone’s screen resolution for the first time, they might start to drool. Built with the latest Sony BRAVIA® technologies optimized for mobile (TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile powered by X-Reality™ for mobile picture engine) Xperia Z1’s screen has a color display that’s tough to beat and incredible to behold.

Can’t wait to get your hands on it? The Sony Xperia Z1 is now available in the US.
