The Sony Xperia Z is a device in a category of its own - a top of the line smartphone that is at the same time dust and water resistant, and good news is that in the UK the device will launch very soon, on March 1st, at least if we look at UK retailer Phones 4U announcement. You can go on and register for pre-orders right now.
It will come to local carrier Vodafone as well but while the retailer named March 1st, the carrier could not narrow it down to a particular release date. At the same time, we are yet to hear official details from Sony about the price of the device.
The Xperia Z is a 5-inch 1080p smartphone running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and running on a quad-core Snapdragon processor. Notably, it has Sony’s new Exmor RS 13-megapixel camera sensor. Best of all, the Xperia Z does not sacrifice looks for its water and dust resistance, and looks gorgeous.
