Sony's supercharged, waterproof flagship Xperia Z1 smartphone
Despite not wanting to place much emphasis on the U.S. market, Sony could continue its relationship with T-Mobile. According to a recent leak from @evleaks, T-Mobile is expected to announce the upcoming availability of the Sony Xperia Z1.
Introduced at IFA in early September, the Xperia Z1 can go toe-to-toe with just about any smartphone. On the surface, the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean-powered device packs a 5-inch 'triluminous' display with a 1920x1080-pixel resolution, as well as a 20.7-megapixel camera.
Under the hood, you'll find a quad-core 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. Rounding things out, the Xperia Z1 features NFC and support for Qi wireless charging. It also doesn't hurt that the phone is sexy, sleek, and waterproof.
T-Mobile currently offers the Sony Xperia Z, though it did join the carrier's roster nearly six months after its initial debut. Perhaps the successor will be faster out of the gate.
