Minimal yet distinctive – OmniBalance design

With Xperia Z, we introduce our new OmniBalance design. The design is focused on creating balance and symmetry in all directions. Xperia Z has subtly rounded edges and smooth, reflective surfaces on all sides, which are held together by an innovative skeleton frame.

Both the front and back are made of glass, with a seamless surface. Together with enhanced reflection coating on the top, bottom and sides, Xperia Z actually mirrors the world around you. OmniBalance design balances technology vs. design, letting you get so totally immersed in the content that the hardware disappears.

The Xperia Z Sony smartphone is precision engineered with a minimal yet distinctive OmniBalance design.

Quality craftsmanship

Xperia Z was designed in collaboration with Sony consumer electronics experts, for quality craftsmanship and consistent attention to details. Only premium materials were used throughout, like aluminium for the power and volume buttons and durable tempered glass for the front and back.

Super slim

We’ve eliminated a layer of air and brought the display closer to the lens, for added touch sensitivity and a smaller size. This construction, along with a new component layout and skeleton frame allows for a slimness of 7.9 mm.

The Xperia Z Android mobile delivers quality craftsmanship details and a super slim 7.9 mm design.

Premium design, outside and inside – Sony unified UI

Whether you’re on a Sony smartphone or tablet, you’ll meet a consistent user interface on your devices and in all your Sony Media apps.

Water and dust resistant

We tested the Xperia Z to make sure it can keep going even after 30 minutes under water. It can even withstand water jets. The high IP55 & IP57 rating means you can use it in the rain, take photos by the pool and easily clean it off from everyday spills and dirt.

We even put Xperia Z in a dust chamber for rigorous testing, to make sure its operations were unaffected.

Quick benefits:

  • Water resistant up to 1 meter
  • Resistant to water jets
  • Dust resistant

Xperia Z water-resistant and dust-resistant design

The glass used on the Xperia Z smartphone display is much stronger than conventional glass.

Durable glass panels

Both the front and back panels of Xperia Z are made of durable tempered glass that’s much stronger than conventional glass. Each glass panel also has an anti-shatter film for even greater durability.

The Xperia Z smartphone from Sony has a tough glass fibre polyamide frame.

An incredibly tough frame

The skeleton frame is made of tough glass fibre polyamide. It has superior mechanical strength, and is so strong that it’s often used as a metal substitute in cars and electronics.

Subtlety in every detail

How do you design something so that the design is hardly seen? How do you make a phone so seamless and smooth that the hardware almost disappears? We call this un-obtrusive design. Learn more about it in Xperia Z’s design video.
