Spyshots of the Sony Xperia Z1 show screen in action

Spyshots of the Sony Xperia Z1 show screen in action
Here we are, just the rest of Monday and all of Tuesday remaining until the introduction of what is expected to be called the Sony Xperia Z1. This is Sony's new Android flagship model and also kicks off Sony's new line of camera-centric smartphones called "One-Sony"  With a 20.7MP sensor, Sony G Lens and an f/1/2.3 inch sensor, the Xperia Z1 is another phone in what is becoming an increasingly large sector of handsets with an imposing rear-facing snapper.

One of our loyal readers managed to obtain some pictures of the Xperia Z1, which he took after having the opportunity of playing with it. In his own words, he tells us that the screen is "punchy" like the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and that 20.7MP camera is better than the rear shooters on the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.
Our source also says that even with the handset running an early version of the firmware, it runs better than the average phone. Lastly, while our tipster says that the Sony Xperia Z1 doesn't look good in press shots, in person it is a different matter.
The countdown to Wednesday continues.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!
