The snappy duo will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow

There’s more to the high-end smartphone world than Apple and Samsung.

Sony took the wraps off its latest flagship devices at IFA - the Xperia XZ and X Compact. 

For first dibs, pre-orders start 30 September till 7 October at your friendly neighbourhood Sony Store or Centre and they will be available on 15 October. 

Xperia XZ

The 5.2in Xperia XZ is quite the smartphone beast. Under the hood are a Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB RAM and a 2900mAh battery to make it the smoothest operator in the Sony Xperia family. Its 23MP camera shoots 4K video with 5 axis-stabilisation to keep videos free from weird judder when you’re filming on the go. Combined with laser fast autofocus and predictive tracking, action shots will never pass you by in a blur again. Sony hasn’t neglected its front camera either, fitting it with 13MP of selfie-taking prowess. 

The Xperia XZ comes with a hybrid dual-SIM slot and 64GB of storage that’s expandable to 256GB for all the photos you’ll be accumulating with it. 

The powerful Xperia XZ is priced at S$998, which is quite a bit cheaper than the iPhone 7 Plus or Samsung Note 7. Read our review to see if it’s worth the investment.
