Leaked images show Sony Xperia Z frame and camera breakdown
We should be seeing the Sony Xperia Z soon enough as the official announcement of the device is expected to be part of CES, which begins next week, but that doesn't mean we're going to turn away when some leaked images come around. The newest leaked images come from the website ePrice, and seem to show off some marketing images that breakdown the frame and camera construction of the device.

The images show a splitscreen comparison of the HDR function on the camera and the regular image quality. This is a nice way to show off HDR, but it doesn't help in making the standard image look all that great. But, the new Exmor RS image sensor and lens is expected to be a one of the best features of the Xperia Z, promising solid low-light performance and the ability to record HDR video.

The images also show off the so-called "skeleton frame" of the phone, which is intended to make the device sturdy, thin, and even dust and water resistant. 

Now, it's just a matter of seeing what the UI looks like before we get too excited here.

This is the first phone i've seen from sony that i've actually completely liked, the phone...i still think they have one of the worse looking UI's in the market.

I'm thinking of buying Xperia P. Is it true that screen isn't that good as it's suppose to be, that you can see too much of backscreen light in dark areas?

Yup.. Black is grey once u put brightness 50 above, viewing angle is ok, but thanks to mobile bravia, outstanding viewing and watching experience. Also ull never had a problem viewing it outside thanks to white magic tech. :)

I have used timescape on the XPERIA S of my gf, sorry but it's boring, incoherent and lack features.

I realy dont like the ui that xperia has put into their phones.. i think they made it too minimalist that made it very boring when you look at it..widgets and icons doesn't look well with each other also.. hope that sony would redesign their UI because it feels less of a sony device

I seriously don't get it. Why people dislike sony ui so much? its much sexy than samsung ugly touchwiz ui. Are u guys blind or never seen sony ui before?? Touchwuz 2.3 is the most ugly touchwiz ive seen

11. stychill unregistered

To each his own, i rate touchwiz higher than htc & sony's UI but none of them has the flair stock android has. In my opinion its the most visually appealing.

Touchwiz has evolved since Gingerbread 2.3. You should get out of your cave sometimes..

Touchwiz was ugly on 2.3, but since Touchwiz UX came out for the GS3, it's pretty good looking.

I definitely agree with you on what you said about the cartoonish Touchwiz.. but xperia UI's kinda boring

Is that true, 6 LENSES, or even 7? That's awesome, can't wait to see the picture quality.

I want to +100000000000000000000000 for your post... their ui is worse Touchwiz

I'm clearly confused with your comment. Are you supporting Sony or Samsung?? Stychill is talking about Sony and you say you agree but also tell us that they have the worst UI. Or is your statement meant to be, 'Touchwhiz is the worst UI'? That would make sense.

Sony's UI has an elegant look with appealing icons and graphics compared to other UIs, at least to me. Samsung's Touchwiz UI might have got more features compared to Sony's Timescape UI, but looks wise Sony's UI wins hands down.

This is going to turn out a huge success for Sony. Better than anticipated.

And smaller, despite having the same display and settings ... I'm curious to know what the real differences between them.

Besides being waterproof, not sure what the ZL is missing. Probably nothing I'd miss.
