An Amazingly Compact Five-Inch Design
What if you could make the display bigger without increasing the size of your phone? Xperia ZL manages the design impossible: a 5” display in a smartphone that fits comfortably in your hand. Optimizing component architecture, Sony engineers increased display size while keeping the phone small. The result is the smartphone with a very high screen to phone size ratio.

Our smartphone cameras are built with Sony’s digital imaging expertise and leading camera technology to bring you ultra-sharp photos and videos, wherever and whenever.
