The Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZL were introduced at the Consumer electronics show 2013 at Las Vegas recently. With both of them sporting a 5 inch 1080p screen and a powerful Qualcomm APQ8064 processor, they generated quite a lot of buzz at the trade show. It was announced that the global roll out will be started soon, and the above image is the first clue that both the Xperia Z and ZL are landing in the Indian markets soon. As you can see above, straight from the horse’s mouth, the Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZL are supposedly “coming soon” to India.

The Xperia Z and ZL are part of the new Smartphone flagship series from Sony and there are some subtle differences between the two. One being the build, in which the Sony Xperia Z has a non removable glass back and is insanely thin at 7.9mm while the ZL has a plastic back with a removable cover for the battery, and at the same time it is 9.8mm thick.
