Sony Confirms its waterproof flagship beast; All hail the Xperia Z1!

Sony has finally announced its brand new 4G Xperia Z1, formerly known from leaked information of all types under the moniker €˜Honami€™.
The Xperia Z1 has a 20.7MP camera which is coupled with a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS CMOS image sensor, Sony€™s G Lens (27mm wide angle, f2.0 aperture) and the same Bionz image processing engine Sony users in its standalone cameras. 
Sony is claiming its new phone camera offers €œbest in class imaging€ and is the €œworld€™s leading camera in a smartphone€, but of course there is Nokia`s Lumia 1020 smartphone with its massive 41MP camera. 
Sony is preloading a number of photo apps in the new Z1, including Social Life, a camera streaming app to broadcast what€™s going on to Facebook; a Timeshift burst mode to take multiple images so you can choose the best shot from several; a visual search app called Info-Eye to get more info on snapped products/landmarks; and an augmented reality app called AR Effect to overlay customised animations onto images.
The Xperia Z1 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean at launch. Its spec list includes a 2.2Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage €“expandable via a microSD card slot €” and a 3,000mAh battery. 
Also, let`s not forget that the new Z1 is also waterproof, just like its predecessor.
Sony says the Xperia Z1 will be available very soon, "later this month".
