The official Sony specs list a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 SoC, which houses four cores at 1.5 GHz and Adreno 320 graphics. Furthermore the smartphone has 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage (expandable via a microSD card) and a 4.55-inch display at 1280 x 720 pixels (319 ppi) sporting Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. On the outside the display is covered with tempered glass.

Sony’s Xperia ZR fully supports HSPA+, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and LTE and has a built-in GPS receiver as well as two cameras: a 0.3 MP front camera and a 13 MP rear camera. The smartphone runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
