Sony Xperia ZL comes to Canada in April

Sony Xperia ZL comes to Canada in April
Sony announced on Thursday that the Sony Xperia ZL will be coming to Canada in April. With mostly the same outstanding specs as the Sony Xperia Z, but minus the waterproofing and dustproofing, the Sony Xperia ZL is slightly shorter than its more talked about sibling. As is the case with the new-gen high-end phones, the device has a 5 inch screen with FHD resolution which works out to a 441ppi pixel density. In fact, the Sony Xperia ZL has the highest screen to phone size ratio. Where most models have a screen to phone size ratio of between 60% and 68%, the Sony Xperia ZL has a ratio of 75%. And the screen is powered by the BRAVIA engine 2 which makes it a display that you need to see to appreciate.

You wouldn't expect a phone like this to be underpowered-and it's not. A quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor is driving Miss Daisy and the Adreno 320 GPU crunches graphics like there's no tomorrow. The now customary 2GB of RAM multitasks till the cows come home, and don't forget the 13MP and 2MP rear and front facing cameras respectively. Unlike the Sony Xperia Z's 2330mAh battery, the 2370mAh battery on the Sony Xperia ZL is non-removable. Android 4.1 comes installed on the device which Sony says will be updated to Android 4.2 soon after launch.

The Canadian carriers named by Sony to be receiving the device are Bell, Mobilicity, MTS, Rogers, Videotron and WIND Mobile. If you are interested in the phone, keep an eye out for when pre-orders will be accepted.
