While the Sony Xperia Z stole the show at Sony’s press conference at CES 2013, the Xperia ZL is also a compelling smartphone.  Featuring almost identical specs as the Xperia Z, ZL offers a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 5-inch 1080p HD display, 13-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 4G LTE, and a 2,370 mAh battery. It will roll out globally beginning in Q1 of 2013.

Sony says the Xperia ZL will come to “select markets.”  Could the US (on AT&T, likely) be one of them?
