HDR VIDEO CAMERA - Shoot in any light
Capture the candle-lit restaurant, or midday on the beach? The 13 MP fast-capture camera with Exmor RS™ for mobile – the world’s first image sensor with HDR video for smartphones – lets you shoot sharp photos and full HD video, even with a strong backlight. And you video chat and take self-portraits in any light with the full HD front camera, thanks to HDR and Exmor R™ for mobile. Superior Auto makes it easy to take amazing photos. Optimized for 36 different scenes, it activates HDR and noise reduction when they’re needed. Action shots? Turn on Burst mode and fire away – 10 frames per second.
WATER RESISTANT - Smart, sleek and durable
Xperia™ Z is not just slim and sleek, at just 7.9 mm, with a reflective glass surface, it’s also crafted to be sturdy and durable.

SNAPDRAGON™ S4 PRO - Smartphone with super power
Forget load time. The Snapdragon™ S4 Pro quad-core 1.5 GHz processor with 2GB RAM gives you super-fast performance and unparalleled graphics.
