At the MWC 2019, Sony launched the Xperia 1 flagship smartphone along with the mid-range Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus smartphones. All these three devices come with CinemaWide display which offers longer 21:9 aspect ratio. The Xperia 1 sports 6.5-inch OLED display with 4K (3840 x 1644 pixels) resolution and supports HDR playback. While the Xperia 1 is yet to see the global launch, we are now seeing leaks about the Xperia 2. The upcoming flagship is rumored to be launched in both OLED and LCD variants.
It is said to sport a smaller 6-inch display and might offer same 4K resolution as its predecessor. The device will also be backed by a 3,200mAh battery. It is even mentioned to come with the triple rear camera setup featuring the same primary camera as seen on the Xperia 1. However, we don’t think the company will be launching a new flagship smartphone anytime soon. The newly launched Xperia 1 will be hitting the stores in the coming weeks. Compared to the other premium flagships available in the market, the Sony Xperia 1 won’t come any cheaper.
It comes with a glossy finish body with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The Sony Xperia 1 comes powered by the 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and includes 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It comes with a triple camera setup featuring 12MP primary sensor with f/1.6 aperture, 12MP ultra-wide-angle sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 12MP telephoto sensor with f/2.4 aperture. It can record 4K HDR videos in 21:9 aspect ratio at 24fps. The rear camera also offers 135-degree ultra-wide-angle view and 2x optical zoom.
The Sony Xperia 1 is the world’s first smartphone to come with Eye AF (Auto Focus). For selfies, there is an 8MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture and 84-degree wide-angle view. The device is also IP65/IP68 certified for water and dust resistance. It is backed by a 3,300mAh non-removable battery and supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging. The device comes equipped with stereo speaker setup and Dolby Atmos support. While all the other manufacturers are moving towards the in-display fingerprint scanners, Sony is sticking with the side-mounted fingerprint design. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
