Sony has announced the younger Brother to the Xperia Z: the Xperia ZR. The Xperia ZR includes
many of the Z’s features in a smaller, more compact design.
The Xperia ZR has a 4.5inch, 1280 x 720 resolution LCD. Sony is using its BRAVIA Engine 2, along with something called OptiContrast panel. This basically gets rid of the extra touchscreen layer by integrating the touch sensor on the panel itself, which improves image quality and makes the display assembly thinner. Along with 1.5GHz Quad-core Snapdragon Qualcomm APQ8064, 2GB RAM , 8GB
internal memory with microSD card slot and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.The Sony Xperia ZR is expected to go on sale
around the world in Q2, 2013.
