The Sony Xperia Z, formerly known only by its "Yuga" codename, might very well be the embodiment of a badly kept secret. Candid photos of it have leaked more than once already, not to mention that a Russian blog even got the chance to give it a thorough preview. And now, yet another piece of the Sony Xperia Z puzzle has been thrown on the table, namely the retail price of the device.
Sony Xperia Z will cost 19,990 Thai Baht. That equals to about $655 off-contract, which seems like a price you'd expect attached to a smartphone of this rank. The handset's pricing might differ in other markets, but perhaps the gap will not be that wide. For those who need a refresher, the Xperia Z packs a 5-inch, 1080p screen, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro system-on-a-chip, 2GB of RAM, and a 12MP Exmor RS camera. Add to all that the water-tight body and the presence of Android 4.1 out of the box and you get a high-end smartphone that will surely make a geek's heart skip a beat.According to this leaked, seemingly legitimate image, the

Sony Xperia Z and ZL are attracting my attention but there is few thing that I still don't like first one I don't like that ZL has camera at the bottom and that they both are comming with Android 4.1. But let's hope that it is only rumors and camera will be at the top and OS will be Android 4.2. At the moment everything elese looks fine for me. :)

it worths paying even 700 for this beast and what about the battery? if that be known, i'll make my final decision

yea battery is a must now a days, but lets not panic if its not an extremely high capacity like 3000 mAh! Because maybe this time around Sony has done a bit of "optimizing" ;) We'll see soon enough :)

ummmmmmm i know what the numbers show.......but have you actually read any reports as to how those numbers hold up in real life usage?? They tend to be pretty decent given the low capacity count bro........numbers arent always everything, know what i mean?

I had a feeling its around 2200mah, but with sony proper optimize, this could be great. Remember their 6000mah batt for xperia tab which provide 9-10hrs of web browsing. Compare that to other tab equip with 7-10kmah

I remember reading the benchmark results somewhere, that said the yuga and the odin drained out of battery while they were being tested, I hope it has been fixed since. Really looking forward to this 5" beast

Looks great. Sleek and understated. Wow, there's finally going to be some real competition for the next Galaxy phone with this, the Butterfly and Find5. How is Samsung going to compete with the quad core S4 pro, 5" 1080P 440ppi RGB LCDs and solid build quality of the Xperia Z and the other already mentioned 5" phones...
