Xperia Z1 coming with the “world's leading camera in a smartphone” according to a Sony press release leak, full specs list also in tow

A Sony press release concerning the imminent unveiling of the Sony Xperia Z1 has been leaked and obtained by the folks over at the XPERIA Blog, and it confirms a bunch of things, some juicier than other. Of course, with less than 4 hours left until Sony's event starts over at IFA 2013 in Berlin, the fact that said press release confirms pretty much everything that we knew is less interesting, so we won't go into too much detail on the things that we do know.


Fortunately, there are quite a few things that we didn't know, or simply things that needed a more clear-cut clarification. One such example is that the now confirmed 20.7MP shooter has been proclaimed by Sony (basing this off of a consumer study carried out by Strategy Analytics) as “the world's leading camera in a smartphone”. Of course, while the 1/2.3''Exmor RS sensor- and G Lens-touting unit sounds quite impressive, we'll gladly give credit to Sony, though only once we've had a chance to confirm the capabilities of the Xperia Z1's snapper for ourselves.


The press release also puts the weight of the Sony Xperia Z1 at 170g, with dimensions of 144x74x8.5mm, so it's a fair bit heavier and a tad bulkier than rivals (and even its predecessor, the Xperia Z). The Z1 will ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean running under the hood, and is slated for a September launch, meaning the wait will very soon be over. So stay tuned, for we have a lot of Xperia Z1-related coverage we'll be sharing with you very soon!
