After watching Sony releasing their all new Xperia Lineup for this year back in Mobile World Congress, the Xperia XZs & XA1 is finally here in Malaysia. The XZs is the latest flagship offering from Sony and the XA1 is the successor to their previous Mid Range device, XA. Now let’s take a quick look on the specifications of these two devices.




Starting off with Sony Xperia XZs.

Sony Xperia XZs | Sony

The XZs has a flagship specifications under the hood with Snapdragon 820 processor along with 4 GB of RAM. The XZ had an amazing camera which lets you take amazing pictures and videos. And with the XZs, things got better.


You get a 19MP rear facing camera with Exmor RS sensor with f/2.0, a 25mm wide G Lens, BIONZ Engine, Triple Image Zoom, 5-axis IS SteadyShot to give your pictures and videos the best output possible. The phone still carries the RGBIR sensors to give you the close to natural tone. And this time, it has a Super Slow Motion video capture where you can capture a whooping 960fps. Yes, 960fps. Which means you get the smoothest mind blowing slow motion video ever.


And other than the cameras, I find the design beautiful and classic. It’s simply beautiful. Not only that, this time you get in three colors. The forest Blue is gone, but you get a new color Ice Blue. I can’t wait to use the Ice Blue XZs.
