Sony build quality is always excellent and those phones are not exception.

I can't wait to see how the software looks like, especially the camera.

If it is true and front facing camera will be at the lower-right corner then I'm disappointed.

Definitely very nice looking design as always with Sony, could have the specifications to be the best phone(s) on the market depending on what else is shown at CES, unfortunately I'm stuck on a 2 year contract with my Xperia S!

p.s. I also have a feeling PA has got it the wrong way round and that the Z will be the international version and the ZL will be Japan-only.. ZL is meant to have an IR blaster and I don't see that being made available worldwide yet.. time will tell, very exciting!

Looks like that's the international version so it appears the ZL will be the US/international version. The Japanese version is the Xperia Z with the front facing camera placed where it should be, the top!

No, the Z is the one for the most of the world. The ZL may also be in the same markets as the Z, which I find strange but oh well. It will also come later in the markets in which it is also offered alongside the Z. The ZL should make it's way to the USA.

Don't really care where the front facing camera is. I hardly use it anyway.

They both look really good. I've been apprehensive about phones with screens biggr than 4.5", as I'm still getting used to using my GNex and it's 4.65" screen. However, the Xperia Z/ZL could definitely change my mind. Way to go Sony!

The ZL I think will be smaller than your GNex...

It is a world phone. It will have LTE for the majority of the worlds' bands.

I'm not a fan of a large handset , but by the picture it's clear that the ZL have a minimalistic bezel borders which make me guess it's going to be very compact handset compering to the competition out there, i'm expecting its physical size to be very close to Lg optimus G which for me and many out there, is a good size phone to be pocketable and one hand handled.
