Device launching globally during 2013's first quarter.
In a process that is required for it to be approved before going on sale within the United States, the FCC has performed a teardown of Sony's Xperia Z smartphone.
The smartphone, which made quite the impression during CES, is currently scheduled for a worldwide launch sometime during the quarter one of 2013.
The device sports a 5-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, a glass front and rear, a 13.1-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot and an HDMI port. It's powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, as well as 2 GB of RAM.
Its operating system, meanwhile, is Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. However, Sony has confirmed that the device will be upgraded to the latest version of Google's mobile platform soon after launch.
Elsewhere, the video below depicts how the Xperia Z (read our hands-on impressions here) is assembled in less than five minutes.
