Sony Xperia Z1 Specs, Price, and Release Date

December 11, 2013 Updated: July 18, 2015

The Sony Xperia Z1 has impressive specs, but a high price. The good news is that the US release date has already come–the phone is available from both AT&T and Verizon.

The Z1 follows the Z. The best feature? It’s completely waterproof. The best upgrade? Possibly the lack of the annoying plastic flap that was on the Z.

The price is $649.99, according to Sony’s website.

Here are some of the specs:

-A 1080p 5-inch display

-Camera: 20.7 megapixel snapper, combined with Exmor RS tech and a BIONZ image processor

-Operating system: Jelly Bean 4.2.2

-high-resolution (1920 x 1080) 5″ Full HD TRILUMINOS™

-Connectable to other Sony accessories, such as a smartwatch

-Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 800 Quad-core 2.2Ghz processor with 2GB RAM
