The Xperia Z is a very powerful Android device that runs on a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm CPU and 2GB of RAM. The device is powered by Android Jelly Bean and features NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. Out of the box, the device includes 16GB of on-board storage, its Micro SD card slot can be used to add another 64GB of storage to the device.
