You may remember us giving the down low on the new Sony Smartphone, the Android Sony Xperia Z. Now Sony has given an official release date of the device in Germany. Per Sony’s Facebook page, it will be set loose on February 21st. We can make a decent guess that the rest of Europe will also see the phone the same day as it was put up for pre-sale orders in the UK already.
The Sony Xperia Z is touted as being dust and water resistant, 5 inch HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, has a whopping 13 MP camera, and 4G LTE. Under the hood it sports a 1.5GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 process with 2GB of RAM.
So when could it arrive in the United States? While we can’t say for sure at the moment, odds are it won’t be too much longer after that. In the meantime, it sounds like it will be avaliable unlocked from places like Negri for around $720 right when it hits Europe.
