The Sony Xperia XZ marks the return of the high-end Xperia series. It is considered as the combination of the X and Z as it features a waterproof casing with the same footprint as the Xperia Z5 and the high-end camera sensors found on the Xperia X.
The XZ features a 5.2″ Full HD display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB internal storage with a microSD card slot, water-resistant design, 23 MP rear camera with triple image sensing technology, Hi-Res audio and DNC support, USB Type-C port, and 2,900mAh non-removable battery.
Although the ZX is not the best Android smartphone on the market, it is still a great upgrade for Sony fans. This year, the Xperia XZ comes in two model numbers, which are F8331 and F8332. Both of them run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and cover LTE CAT9 bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 19, 20, 26, 28, 29, 32, 38, 39, 40, and 41.
What are the differences between them, check out the comparison below.
|Model Number||Carrier / Country||Connectivity|
|Xperia XZ F8331||North America & Europe||Single SIM|
|Xperia XZ F8332||Asia and Europe||Dual-SIM Standby (a hybrid slot shared with the microSD card)|
So you can see that there is not much difference here. The two models have almost the same hardware and the only difference lies in the SIM tray.
