Federal Communications Commission has approved the Sony Xperia Z smartphone. The device bears a ‘PY7PM-0280’, FCC ID.
FCC teardown photos of the device has confirmed that the Xperia Z will include a linear oscillating vibrator instead of the conventional rotational vibrator. The battery of the device is likely to be difficult in removing and replacing, which is not in the case of Sony Xperia S.
As per the FCC document, instead of testing the Sony Xperia Z bearing LTE C6603 model, the C6602 HSPA+ model was tested.
One of Sony’s recently launched 2013 flagship devices, the Xperia Z is packed with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon S4 pro quad-core processor, a rear-facing 13MP camera with Exmor RS for mobile and video HDR mode, 2GB of RAM, a 2300mAh battery and NFC. The device comes with a high-level of dust (IP5X) and water resistance (IPX5/7), running Google’s Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS out of the box.
Yesterday, Sony Mobile announced the Xperia Z smartphone will be available in South East Asia including Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore before the end of first quarter. We hope that the smartphone will be available in the US very soon as well since FCC approved the device.
