April brings showers & also the Sony ZL to Canada

image

Sony unveiled the Xperia ZL at CES & a couple days after announced that it will be coming to Canada. Well Sony has just stated that the 5″ device will be coming to Bell, Mobilicity, MTS, Rogers, Videotron and WIND sometime in April.

Like I said the ZL sports a 5″ 1080p HD display (Bravia Engine 2) 440ppi & covering that is a shatter-proof sheet of scratch-resistant glass. The phone is powered by a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm snapdragon S4 quad core with Adreno 320 GPU with 2GB RAM. There’s 16gb of internal memory & expandable memory of 32gb through Micro SD Slot. A 13mp main camera with a secondary 2mp camera. It will be an LTE device for fast data speeds. This is all being powered by a 2370mah battery & features Sony’s battery saving software.
This looks like a quality device but We’ll have to wait & see for ourselves when it becomes available, which isn’t that far off.
Are you a fan of Sony devices, will you be looking to aquire the ZL when it comes to Canada?

Sony’s new Quad Core 5″ 1080p Full HD Experia Z is coming to Canada soon, & will launch on Bell Mobility. It’s unsure if any other carriers will have this device in their lineup & only time will tell. Sony says the Experia Z & ZL are their premium quad core phones for 2013. Many were hoping to see the ZL come to Canada which has the same specs but with a stylish glass backing & fully waterproof body.
