Here’s more info:

The Xperia Z1s has an IP58 rating, a 20.7 megapixel camera, BIONZ for mobile image processing engine, and Sony G Lens as well as a 5-inch Full HD TRILUMINOS Display and X-Reality for mobile.

You get six great movies to download from Video Unlimited including Sony Pictures’ critically acclaimed Captain Phillips on the day of its digital release, 10 preselected PlayStation Mobile games, and a 60-day free trial of Music Unlimited.

Whether above or below water, Xperia Z1s leverages Sony’s best digital imaging technology to capture compact digital camera quality 20.7 MP photos and Full HD videos. For the first time in a U.S. flagship smartphone, Sony has added its BIONZ for mobile image processing engine – the ‘brain’ of the camera, which together with the sensor, produces images with less noise or blurring, better auto-focus and white balance, and clear image 3x zoom. Sony’s camera expertise also extends to the lens, with Sony’s award-winning G Lens (F2.0), which incorporates the brand’s unique optical design technology and quality control.

Innovating on what’s expected of smartphone camera capabilities and overall experience, the Xperia Z1s comes preloaded with a unique suite of applications called Xperia Camera Apps. Making their debut on a U.S. flagship smartphone, these applications include Info-eye, Timeshift burst, AR effects, Social live, and as an exclusive to Xperia Z1s, Background defocus.

Info-eye: Perform a visual search that provides related information on items like wine, books, and landmarks, simply by capturing them with the camera

Timeshift burst: Capture 61 images within two seconds – a second before and after pressing the shutter – so you can scroll back and forth to find the perfect image.

AR effect: Overlay a selection of fun, customizable animations to create pictures with playful touch using the “SmartAR” augmented reality technology developed by Sony. The animations include dinosaurs, ocean-life and more.

Social live: Broadcast memories in the making to friends and family on Facebook, live from your Xperia Z1s. Moments such as your best friend’s wedding to your child’s very first recital, are not only shared while you record, but are also made interactive as you receive your friends’ responses right on your screen to keep the conversation going in real-time.

Background defocus: Adjust the blur in the background for more artistic, professional-looking photos, once only achieved by using top of the line D-SLR cameras or specific lenses, with this exclusive camera app for your Xperia Z1s.

Xperia Z1s features a 5-inch Full HD display incorporating Sony’s intelligent TRILUMINOS Display technology powered by X-Reality for mobile picture engine. The TRILUMINOS for mobile display creates a wide palette of rich natural colors reproducing 130% of the natural color gamut and contrast for an immersive viewing experience thanks to Sony’s BRAVIA expertise.
