Sony Xperia XZs features a 5.2-inch Full HD TRILUMINOS display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. It is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor, coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be further expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card slot.
On the camera front, there’s a 19-megapixel Motion Eye camera with Exmor RS sensor, triple image sensing and 5-axis stablization technology.
The rear camera supports super slow motion video recording at 960 fps along with 4K recording. The front camera is 13-megapixel front-shooter with 22mm wide-angle lens and f/2.0 aperture.
The device runs Android 7.0 Nougat, while rest other specifications of the Xperia XZs remain same as its predecessor.
