Sony Xperia XZ

We strongly feel that if something “aint broke” don’t try to fix it as Sony went ahead and renamed its flagship series of SmartPhones yet again from the Xperia Z series  to the “Xperia XZ” flagship SmartPhones. Announced back in September of 2016.

 And yes, there were the similarities we’d come to expect, like retaining the physical camera shutter and the side-facing fingerprint scanner, the bottom line is that the XZ Flagship SmartPhone did look like its predecessors in terms of the look and design, and., it is located on the right-hand side of the phone's body.
