The Z1 packs the fastest processor on the market, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, one clocked at 2.2GHz. There's also 2GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, 16GB onboard storage, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 20.7-megapixel camera with a massive 1/2.3in sensor, wide angle lens and an F2.0 aperture, a 5in full HD display with Sony Triluminos and X-Reality technologies, and powered by a massive 3,000mAh battery that provides enough energy to squeeze up to 15 hours' worth of talk time.

But that's not all, the phone is also waterproof and dust resistant with the frame made from tough glass fibre polyamide and durable tempered glass. Interested? Find out more through our Sony Xperia Z1: Hands-on preview here.
