With the discovery of some Sony-sourced images of the Xperia Z and ZL, you might think the once-Yuga-and-Odin were now out of surprises, and hopefully all set to go official at the CES next week. Well, we’ve got one more leak that might be worth checking out, chock full of images and information on the Xperia Z.
These images, pulled from a leaked promotional video, show off the very shiny Xperia Z, constructed with what Sony’s calling a skeleton frame, apparently a loose lattice onto which component panels are attached. Despite this assembly out of a multitude of individual parts, the Xperia Z will still be dust and water resistant.
The new Exmor RS image sensor and lens package looks like an especially high point for the Xperia Z, and should deliver some very nice low-light performance along with really rich video quality thanks to the ability to record even moving images in HDR mode.
In case you haven’t been keeping up with the leaked specs so far, the Xperia Z should arrive with a 1080p display, run a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC, and have 2GB of RAM. Check back with our CES 2013 coverage to see what else we learn about the phone at the expo.
