A few weeks ago at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, the first high profile Android smartphone launch of the year took place, with the Sony Xperia Z officially unveiled at the event. Before the launch of the phone, it was one of the most talked about devices in recent months with widespread speculation and rumours about the phones potential features circulating around the internet. Following its unveiling, first impressions of the phone have been very encouraging.
The Xperia Z is by far the most impressive smartphone from the Japanese manufacturer. However, soon enough, the device will have tough competition on with hands from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. But, the Xperia Z has its own advantages when it comes to its features such as a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Android Jellybean OS, a 13 megapixel camera, and 16 GB internal storage capacity. With its IP55 and IP57 certifications, the phone also has dust-proof and water-proof attributes.
Since the phone has been announced, the anticipation has largely turned to when we can expect the phone to be launched. It is, however, now available for pre-order in many countries for a few weeks already, and a more precise launch date has now been revealed. GSM Arena has reported that a Facebook status was made by Sony Mobile Germany stating that February 21st will be the release date of the phone.
