Sony today made the Xperia XZs smartphone available for preorder from Amazon, Best Buy, and other online retailers. The phone, announced earlier this year, will begin to ship April 5. The XZs has a 5.2-inch full HD screen, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, and support for memory cards up to 256 GB. The phone has a 19-megapixel main camera with 5-axis stabilization, 960fps super slow motion video, predictive focus, and triple-image sensing. The user-facing camera has a 13-megapixel sensor. Sony gave the phone a 2,900mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 and Qnovo adaptive charging to help lengthen the life-span of the battery over multiple charge cycles. Other specs include USB-C, IP68 for waterproofing, high-end audio processing, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and NFC. The device ships with Android 7.1 Nougat. The phone costs $699 and is sold unlocked. It is compatible with the networks operated by AT&T and T-Mobile.
