The Sony Xperia Z might be a few months old now, but it's about to officially arrive in the great white north as an exclusive on Bell Mobility. The Canadian carrier will begin selling the Xperia Z later this month (July 2013) in white, black, and purple.

This is going to be the proper Xperia Z, not that watered down, non-water-resistant Xperia ZL. In case you need a refresher on the Z's specs, here they are:

  • 5" 1080 x 1920p full HD Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2
  • 13MP Fast Capture camera with Exmor RS sensor
  • Water and dust resistant (IP55 & IP57) with a durable glass display
  • 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor
  • 2GB RAM

The Xperia Z is no slouch, but it's starting to look a bit dated next to the HTC One and Galaxy S4. Bell didn't announce an exact date, nor a price for the device. The Xperia Z will be sold at Sony and Bell stores, as well as at The Source. You can sign up on Bell's site to receive updates, but that doesn't usually pan out.

    You may want to correct something: it's an S4 Pro (quad-core), not an S4 (dual-core).

    What I really want is the Fujitsu Arrows F06E, then I'll sign up for another few years with Bell.
