The Sony Xperia Z has been unveiled at CES 2013 with a whopping 13-megapixel camera. The 5-inch full HD Reality Display (1080 x 1920) sporting Sony's own Mobile Bravia Engine 2 uses technology borrowed from its TV range to produce a crisp, vivid display.

The Xperia Z the first smartphone (or superphone) from Sony features a quad-core processor – clocked at 1.5Ghz and backed up by 2GB of RAM meaning Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Round the back is a 13.1MP camera capable of recording 1080p video and a single-LED flash, while on the front is a 2.2MP snapper.

Smartphone staples such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS are all present, as is NFC and 4G. Since this is a global handset, the Xperia Z operates on GSM networks but should connect to 3.5/4G HSPA+ infrastructure for quick data access. The Xperia's high-capacity 2,700mAh battery is not removable.

Encased in an all-black chassis, though Sony plans to offer the phone in a selection of multiple color options, the Xperia Z is a real looker. The device's body is crafted in premium metallics with a back panel made from smooth glass. Also highlighting the Xperia's premium feel is its screen, which is set flatly within the device's trim bezel. This edge-to-edge construction helps the already large display to appear even bigger.

However, the Sony Xperia Z only comes in a 16GB variant, but it does sport a microSD slot to expand on this and, as an added bonus, the handset is dust- and waterproof.
