CES 2013 was the perfect place for the most important companies out there to announce and present their latest gadgets, whether we are talking about smartphones, tablets, apps, innovations, smartTV, and so on. But, of course what managed to arouse everyone’s attention were Sony’s 5 inch 1080p capable handsets, the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL. The devices are impressive in both performances (with high end specs and features) and design, so it is really hard not to want to test these Android based smartphones.
Don’t worry though, as you will soon be able to buy the Sony Xperia Z, or the ZL, as more and more news about the future release dates and market availability are being leaked almost daily. Only a few days ago I have brought you fresh info about the Xperia Z launch date for Australia and UK (unfortunately there are still no words about the US event) and now further details are being revealed related to the Xperia ZL future release date through Canada.
As you know, Sony announced that the Xperia ZL will only be available in selected markets and apparently Canada is one of them. According to a leaked tweet (you have it below) from Sony’s Canada Twitter page the Xperia ZL will be made available “soon”, sometime in the first quarter of the year. The exact date is still missing but if we are to believe the rumors the device should be released in late February, or early March.
The Sony Xperia ZL specs and features are including a 5 inch full HD Reality display, a powerful quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB or RAM memory, 16 GB of internal storage memory, a micro SD card slot, a 13 MP rear facing camera along with a 2 MP front facing one, HSPA+ / LTE support and the latest version of the Android system, the Jelly Bean 4.1.2 flavor.
Remember that the Xperia ZL will soon be made available in Canada, though info related to the exact date and future pricing offers are still unknown. Anyway, we can presume that the phone will be offered for somewhere around $850, this being also the price tag rumored for the Xperia Z device. That’s all for now, but stay close as we will update you with fresh info as soon as something new comes out.
