We thought some of you may want to see the two new Sony Xperia flagships (Xperia Z and Xperia ZL) side-by-side. Anyone thinking of buying a new high-end Sony Xperia, will ultimately be deciding between these two models in 2013. Whilst we don’t have all of the details yet on the Xperia ZL (C650X Odin), we’re pretty much there on the Xperia Z (C660X Yuga).
Both handsets are expected to sport a 5-inch 1080p display powered by a 1.5GHz APQ8064 quad-core chipset from Qualcomm. They will also come with 2GB RAM and a 13MP Exmor RS camera. However, the Xperia Z is likely to be water & dust resistant, which may edge it over the Xperia ZL for some.
One big design difference between the two, judging by the front face at least, is camera placement. The Xperia Z has the front-facing camera where you’d normally expect to find it on the top, whilst the Xperia ZL has it on the bottom right, which is probably better for landscape video calls. The notification light between the two is also different, with Yuga at the top and Odin using a similar light as seen in the miro, at the bottom of the handset.
Anyway, we thought we’d ask our readers your opinion on the two. As things stand, which handset is more appealing to you – the Xperia Z or the Xperia ZL? Shoot off in the comments below.
