The elegant, 5" Xperia Z1 is the latest addition to Sony's premium Z
series of products and brings Sony's proven world-class technologies to
the smartphone like never before - including the very best of Sony's camera expertise. Xperia Z1 features Sony's award-winning "G Lens" with a 27mm wide
angle and bright F2.0 aperture, custom made large 1/2.3-type CMOS image
sensor Exmor RS for mobile with 20.7MP and a BIONZ for mobile image
processing engine. The combination of these technologies delivers a
similar level of quality and performance as a conventional compact
digital camera in a slim, waterproof smartphone.
Independent testing has confirmed that Xperia Z1 provides the best
overall image quality of all leading Android smartphones2. This means that Xperia Z1 captures beautiful, sharp and bright images
even in lowlight conditions. High shutter speeds and 3x clear image
zoom also prevents shots from being blurred while enabling them to be
captured at distance.
