Sony's Xperia ZL will launch in Canada this April.

Sony Mobile said multiple carriers will carry the Jelly Bean-powered smartphone including Bell, Mobilicity, MTS, Rogers, Videotron and WIND Mobile.

Peter Farmer, Marketing VP of Sony Mobile, said customers have plenty to expect: "With the highest screen to phone size ratio available today, the Xperia ZL represents over half of a century worth of Sony innovation in TV, imaging, music, film, gaming and design. Loaded with Sony's One-touch functions and media applications, the Xperia ZL will provide an unparalleled entertainment experience whether on-the-go or as a central device within the home."

Customers will enjoy the Xperia ZL's Reality Display, powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, that brings super brightness and clarity. The phone also shares capabilities with Sony digital cameras and features Exmor RS for mobile, the world's first image sensor with HDR (High Dynamic Range) video for smartphones.

Additionally, Sony's One-touch functions enable consumers to easily share music, photos and videos from their smartphone to an array of NFC-enabled Sony devices, including speakers, headphones and TVs. Luckily, with that kind of activity, the Xperia ZL also features Battery STAMINA Mode that can improve the standby time by four times or more by automatically shutting down battery-draining apps whenever the screen is off and starting them up again when the screen is back on.
