Sony unveiled the Xperia ZL at CES 2013 earlier this week. We got some hands-on time with the device at the Sony booth at CES. The Xperia ZL is packs almost similar features as the Xperia Z including a 5-inch Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) Reality display with mobile Bravia Engine 2 and a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor with Adreno 320 GPU. The phone comes with a 13MP rear camera with flash and a 2.2 MP 720p front-facing camera.
There is a glowing LED indicator below the display, which is not present in the Xperia Z. It also has an IR transmitter which would let you control your TV, DVD player etc. using the IR remote app.
It runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and is upgradable to Android 4.2 in future.
On the right side there is a large power/lock button and a volume rocker.
The phone also has a dedicated camera key.
At the back there is a 13MP camera with LED Flash along with a secondary microphone.
The back is made of plastic, unlike the Xperia Z that has a glass back.
There is a small compartment at the bottom, that opens up to reveal the micro SIM and micro SD card slots.
The Sony Xperia ZL comes in Black and White colors.
It packs a 2330 mAh battery. Check out the entire photo gallery below.
