Lo and behold, Sony unveiled its actual flagship X-series device at IFA 2016, the Xperia XZ. Compared to the Sony Xperia X, the XZ has a refined design, and puts a serious focus on photography.
Here’s a snippet from our hands-on review:
“The 23MP sensor also comes with new white balance technology to help enhance the color of your photographs and improve fine detail (a common problem with Sony’s sensors). In a smartphone first the XZ also uses 5-axis stabilization tech to ensure your video doesn’t come out blurry.”
Sony’s latest waterproof smartphone will be upgraded to Android Nougat soon enough, and overall seems like a culmination of the best found in both the X and Z series.
