Like other Sony flagships we’ve seen in the past, this one too boasts an imaging department that is supposed to be a notch better than any other flagship in the market. This is achieved by a 20.7MP Exmor sensor at the rear of the device, which is accompanied by a 2.2MP front. Again, Sony have maintained the ruggedness once again with IP certification which confirms the device’s water/dust proof nature.
