Sony Xperia Z successor: Sony Xperia Z1 (aka honing Ami or i1)

* Update 20.09.13 * Sony Xperia Z1 is now in the bridgat shop in stock and available. We have provided the official product video for the new Sony Smartphone (in german) see the article you at the end of the detailed article to Sony Xperia Z1. You can find also the German commercial for the Sony Xperia Z1 under this article.

* Update 04.09.13 * the top model Sony Xperia Z1 was well presented and the previous rumors have come true. It is a 5 ″ has become Phablet with elegant housing, which is very similar to its predecessor, but slightly thicker (8, 5 mm instead of 7. 9mm) and heavier (170 g instead of 146 g). The edges made round so that it should be aluminum and glass now gently in your hand despite the hard materials.

 

Sony attaches particular importance to the camera: this is not only a megapixel monster with 20.7 megapixels, but goes with compact camera Exmor CMOS image sensor (1/2.3 “), Aperture f 2.0 and 27 mm wide angle lens on touting. The extra lenses appear often together with the Sony Xperia Z1 which are by the way their own camera and do not use the integrated camera technology. Therefore, we present this in a separate article. The battery of the Xperia Z1 should contain whopping 3000 mAh and as usual the Smartphone IP55/58 is certified (water and dust resistance). 4K-video offers the Sony Smartphone but contrary to the rumors in the prior, a pretty useless feature is likely to be but also currently (Acer try S2 anyway with the liquid).

Perhaps the long guesswork to the name of the new Xperia top model has an end. Initially circulated the new top model of Sony as “ honing Ami ”, later as a honing Ami Z1 or i1 and now Xperia Z1, what sounds after a final name for the Android Smartphone. Quite likely, Sony Xperia Z1 is the successor of the successful Sony Xperia Z. Accordingly the first technical specifications of the high-end smartphones read imposing.

Is the Xperia Z1 – inasmuch as the previous rumors confirm – look visually not significantly different than the Xperia Z.  There’s no reason at all but, finally Sony has created for the first time a unique and high-quality design Z with the Xperia, that iPhone 5 and HTC one is not in. With lots of glass and metal also Xperia Z1 will feel again high and also quite flat with supposedly no more than 8, 3 mm deep (but not so record like the Huawei Ascend P6 …). Also wassser – and dust-resistant like the Xperia Z and the Xperia Z ultra to be again the successor.

 

The display of the Xperia Z1 to round 5 ″ be great and dissolve with full HD (1920 × 1080 pixels). Also ultra should be like when the Xperia Z the Sony Triluminous technology used, which has helped the Phablet to again better image quality, had to offer as the Xperia Z already. On the hardware side a fast Snapdragon 800 should like also at the Phablet Sony Xperia Z Ultra chipset quad-core processor and 2 gb of memory are used. The 16 gb internal memory should be expandable with a Microsd card. At the 20.7 megapixel Sony camera relies on an image processor (“ Bionz ”), which also in SLR cameras in a similar form is used, to further increase the quality of the image. LTE to be used also for the Sony Xperia Z1. Reportedly, the device will officially be presented in September. With a release this year is to be expected! Also a mini variant is probably (probably Sony Xperia Z1 mini) come of smartphones on the market, which supposedly comes with the same powerful hardware on the market, but only 4.3 ″ display diagonal has (see report).

ASUS Padfone infinity: Smartphone and Tablet the third

The first ASUS Padfone has combined Smartphone, Tablet and notebook (almost) and is up to date with this concept pretty much alone on the market because (we reported). That has not changed with the ASUS Padfone 2 and also the new ASUS Padfone infinity stands completely alone with the idea stick Smartphone and tablet to a device.

* Update 20.09.13 * prices for the Padfone infinity with no Tablet are now known. They move in the context of what we had already predicted. The tablet with the Smartphone in the set you want to €799,-(EIA), the Smartphone costs alone €549,-(EIA). Color to white (“ Platinum White ”) and black will be available (“ Titanium Black ”). The ASUS Padfone infinity come the end of October or In early November after Germany!

Short summarized is the Padfone infinity again a full-fledged Smartphone with a Tablet docking station. The latter is not without the Smartphone of the sets to operate, but runs on the hardware. So it’s almost a symbiosis between display Tablet and Smartphone hardware. The Smartphone of the Padfone infinity has a 5 ″ full HD display and 4.2.2. Hardwaretechnisch runs with Android the current high-end chipset Snapdragon of 800 with quad-core’s processor in the device, as in most high-priced Android smartphones currently (E.g. Sony Xperia Z ultra LG G2, Samsung Galaxy S4 advanced Sony Xperia Z1). Also 2 gb large memory is typical of current smartphones. The 16 and 32 gb internal memory can be extended via Microsd card.

 

 

Hardware and facilities

the ASUS Padfone infinity can score but in terms of camera: the integrated 13 megapixel camera to using a special technique (“ oversampling ”) make better pictures by multiple single images for a better overall picture to be added together. Thanks to LTE (all frequencies), dual-band Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and A.GPS is the Smartphone of the Padfone infinity for himself alone a tip and should also – in contrast to the previous – are sold without the tablet. Put it in the Tablet, so we the Smartphone image on the 10.1 resolved also with full HD ″ touchscreen sent. Of course, the larger display is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery. A release in Germany is not known so far – we stay tuned.

Asus is by the way not to have for the first time for interesting Smartphone ideas. While all other manufacturers offering major Smartphones (so-called Phablets) or just the Tablet without phone functions, Asus has a tablet with phone functions in the program. The ASUS Fonepad 7 provides this rare combination. Well-intentioned tip from us: you now a Bluetooth headset to create, this telephone phone tablet could otherwise cause irritations in the public ….

Availability and price

The Tablet Smartphone combination will be available in Q4 2013 in Germany (also separately either Smartphone or Tablet). Nothing is known about a price, however, we expect that the ASUS Padfone infinity (with both devices) is again quite expensive (about 700 – 800,-€). Given the hardware of the Smartphones, this is not surprising but – it can compete with devices that cost alone about €600.

Apple iPhone 5C & 5S High Sale

High sales motivates other potential buyers to hit attacks the herd instinct. Apple is thinking for providing a total of 9 million Apple iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. Analysts interviewed by the online portal CNN Money: it issued statements range from quite positive votes to skeptical statements that keep the high sales.

 

Apple has included the sales of network operators in the official sales figures. But Apple separates the naming of sales between the Apple iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5C. Analyst Peter Misek points out that directly sold out iPhone 5 S will not start the iPhone 5 C.

iPhone 5 S were sold about 4 million, while yet another 5 million units have been sold – by the latter 50% at least in the camp of traders. In this respect he estimates Apple sold approximately 6.5 million Smartphones (i.e. 1.5 million more than when the iPhone 5), which is still a very solid number.

In that perspective, the numbers is clearly compared to the previous year’s figures. Apple CEO Tim Cook raved about the best sales result. Apple is still very good: thanks to iOS 7, innovative features for the iPhone 5S (fingerprint scanner, “ true-tone ” camera flash, 64-bit processor and M7 motion processor) and reasonably affordable iPhone 5 C Apple smartphones are still a good choice.

NextGen cheap Phablet: Mobistel Cynus T7

It’s not even so long, as we have reported on cheap Phablets – including the Mobistel Cynus T5 was. This fea­ture is, that they offer much technology at a low price. Since the Mobistel Cynus T7 is no exception: the dual-SIM-enabled Phablet Android combined with a large display with a quad-core processor – only the internal memory with 4 gb is very small fall.

Mostly cheap Mediatek chipsets, which get not quite up to the performance of the current high-end smartphones stuck in the cheap China smartphones. It is also in the Mobistel Cynus T7: the Mediatek chipset has a quad-core processor with 4 x 1.2 GHz and 1 gb RAM. The huge 6 ″ display is almost as big as at the current Phablet Primus Sony Xperia but offers Ultra, Z “ only ” a HD resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels instead of full-HD and hence a relatively low pixel density of 245 DPI.

In addition, also the internal memory with only 4 is a buzz kill when the Mobistel Cynus T7 gb, because apps can be no more outsourced since Android 4.x on the SD card (also with App2SD!), so that the internal memory in a few app installations should be pretty fast at the end. Camera of Mobistel Smartphone, high-end results such as the Nokia Lumia is suitable for snapshots 13 megapixel 1020 or Sony Xperia Z1 may be expected but.

 

Overall it’s quite strongly at the Mobistel Cynus T7 on the sale price: 9, 9 mm thick, the Smartphone is not slim and with 205 g also no lightweight. The technique is however very solid and offers Android 4.2 ensure a fluid user experience. But those who seeking a high-end package, is wrong. In this case, you should better the Sony Xperia Z look Ultra or the Samsung Galaxy touch 3.

Decadent and fully in line with the trend: Golden smartphones

Apple has kicked off apparently with the iPhone 5 S a wave, to stop that. So: If you are at least 40 years old, wearing a moustache or beard and chest hair out your Hawaiian shirt wells, then the HTC one sighted in Russia in gold for you might be. If it pulls out the glossy 24 carat Smartphone while enjoying a Cuban cigar, nobody is able to resist you.

 

Now seriously: an HTC one, covered with gleaming 24 k gold, delivered in a wooden box made of oak wood like a fine piece of jewelry – somehow fits this technology gadget world not to the old men’s chic. But we know: East Germany the clocks tick yet quite different and so the one or other customers for the most dekandenteste Smartphone in the world may find maybe. Against the HTC one gold in the wooden box is the Apple iPhone 5 S is still a true style icon.

If you are still interested: in Russia, the HTC one is – way, technically identical to the German one of HTC – to have, which is approximately €2320,-with the real gold plating for around 100,000 roubles. We would recommend, however, to look at the significantly more favourable normal variant in various colours. Gold is there at present only in the Apple iPhone 5S – this also is at least a bit decadent ….

, By the way: If you for in the bridgat shop Golden smartphones, but just use our category designated in the shop: under the category “ Golden phones ” we list all smartphones in gold for you!

Sony ’ s Smartphone crispbread: Xperia Z ultra

* Update 16.09.13 * the Phablet Sony Xperia Z ultraist now in the bridgat shop now available!

So flat and no other smartphone is size … is not quite, because there are flatter (Huawei Ascend P6), but at least in the size there is no flatter Smartphone as the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and also the sheer size of the display continues with 6.4 ″ diagonal standards (competition for the Samsung Galaxy mega). Also the Sony Smartphone, which resembles with 6, 5mm thick on a crispbread should await you with very strong hardware and top facilities. We take the new Super Smartphone with Android Sony with you under the microscope.

 

Visually anyway, the Xperia Z must not hide ultra. Like the Xperia Z convinces it visually clear language of form, minimalist and “ hard ” design. The Smartphone is hard in the truest sense also, because like his little brother Sony Xperia Z without the tags “ ultra ” the Sony Smartphone offers a waterproof housing, which of course means an advantage in everyday life. To do this it has received but still certificates IP55 and IP58, i.e. it is officially protected from dust and resistant of course as mentioned against water. Visually, the Sony Xperia of z but not on outdoor cell phone is trimmed. On the contrary, the Smartphone looks like a genuine high-end bolide. The Sony Xperia ultra Z should come in September after Europe, we take for you of course already now technically under the microscope.

 

Design and processing

Sony the Xperia Z ultra now advertises with “ big screen, big entertainment ” – this is of course absolutely true. Anyone looking for a mixture of Tablet and Smartphone, will be ultra Z best served with the Sony Xperia. As mentioned already input, offers the Sony Xperia Z ultra but not only a large display with edgy shapes and distinctive design, but is even waterproof. Sony seems to have found series can distinguish themselves clearly from the usual iPhone borrows from and that has a real recognition with the Xperia Z a consistent design route. In addition you must be but also in clear that the Smartphone with the size of Knäckebrots is almost a Tablet and strong hardware is installed, which cries out for a potent battery. Accordingly, Sony a big 3000 has obstructed mAh battery, which provides in connection with the other high-quality materials for a weight of rich 212 g. For comparison: the Apple iPhone 5 weighs 112 g, the Samsung Galaxy mega weighs 199 g. So the Sony Xperia is ultra Z so not necessarily difficult given his size, but relatively in comparison to a normal size Smartphone already. The Apple’s iPad mini with 308 g weight also only a third is heavier and the Tablet anything for your Pocket really.

 

Display: full HD to 6.4 ″ diagonal and pen input

as seen in the Sony Xperia Z Sony of course also at the Sony Xperia Z ultra to ’ s whole: the display is when the diagonal of 6.4 ″ naturally resolved (1920 × 1080) full HD. Thus, it outperforms the current giant Smartphone competition, like for example the Samsung Galaxy mega 6.3 or the Samsung Galaxy touch 2, all “ only ” resolve with 1280 × 720 pixels. This is probably so far because that the backlight must increasingly work at higher pixel density and so the battery suffers. I hope Sony gets to grips with this problem!

Also the criticism of the display of the Xperia Z is expected with the addition “ ultra ” be passed. This display was often perceived pale despite its high resolution as something and the viewing angles were also not optimal. This time Sony developed the technology: the Triluminous comes for the first time using technology that will significantly enhance the color representation. Sony also uses technology that further improve sharpness and image quality on the X-reality. Little gimmick that is proven in practice still must: the display can be operated even with gloves and pins with conductive tip (pencil, ball-point pen).

Hardware and equipment

To liquid fuel the large display with content, Sony 800 sattten 2.2 GHz Snapdragon processor brings the quad-core used, which provides extreme values in first benchmarks. So the processor Snapdragon is surpassed 600 (E.g. installed in the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC one) partly by 100%, partly to 50% depending on the test scenario. A significant leap in performance, especially when you consider that these smartphones are their class exactly the fastest.

In addition, 2 gb memory are installed. HSPA + and LTE are also supported. Internal 16 gb memory available for be available, from which the user can use effectively 11 gb for apps and data. This memory can be expanded but with a micro-SD card (up to 64 gb), so this should be no problem. Clear gibr’s also A-GPS, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. The camera should be solid but not as spectacular as the rest: 8 Megapixel, Exmor R sensor, rear and 2 megapixel front. It sounds like Z here not much did in comparison to the Sony Xperia is. Not need it but also because the camera had a high quality of.

Software: Android 4.2 + Sony UI

Of course expect at a top current Sony Xperia Smartphone with the latest Android version. Currently, this Android 4.2 release in September is so something could do themselves. Covered the operating system is as always with the Sony Sony user interface UI. Sony does not make with the trend to the Android Smartphone without own modification. But good: The Sony interface fits optically to the design of the Smartphones and belongs to the perfect surface for Android, which include useful supplements and does not act as unnecessary ballast for the users.

Availability and price

Is the Sony Xperia Z appearance to ultra end September 2013 (week 39) in Europe. Price, the Smartphone that is consistently equipped with highend technology, will be in the high-end area. Speculation is currently with a price around €719,-to the release. We keep you of course to date, insofar as resulting ultra news on the Sony Xperia Z and will report here in the blog bridgat.
