Sony today unveiled a new 5-inch waterproof Xperia Z1 smartphone with a 20.7-megapixel camera.

The elegant, 5" Xperia Z1 is the latest addition to Sony's premium Z series of products and brings Sony's proven world-class technologies to the smartphone like never before - including the very best of Sony's camera expertise. Xperia Z1 features Sony's award-winning "G Lens" with a 27mm wide angle and bright F2.0 aperture, custom made large 1/2.3-type CMOS image sensor Exmor RS for mobile with 20.7MP and a BIONZ for mobile image processing engine. The combination of these technologies delivers the same level of quality and performance as a conventional compact digital camera in a slim, waterproof smartphone. Indeed, independent testing has confirmed that Xperia Z1 provides the best overall image quality of all leading smartphones1. This means that Xperia Z1 captures beautiful, sharp and bright images even in lowlight conditions. High shutter speeds and 3x clear image zoom also prevents shots from being blurred while enabling them to be captured at distance.

● Timeshift burst: Capture the perfect shot every time - Xperia Z1 takes 61 images in 2 seconds - a second before and after pressing the shutter - so you can scroll back and forth to find the perfect image.

Notably, the Xperia Z1 features an aluminum body construction with tempered glass on the front and back. Inside the smartphone is a fully integrated Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2.2 GHz quad-core CPU and 4G LTE, as well as a 3000 mAh battery for a high battery performance.

Every time the same 20 Mega on the paper and when you see the picture result looks like 10 Mega quality, all the demos in the video has made with Photoshop and no real!. I has the Sony Z for one onth, and I don't like it, it is a 1080 Full HD on the paper, but if you look to the display from a little bit side all the contarst is losing and you not see nothing!.
