Japanese tech giant Sony has launched ‘Xperia 1’ flagship smartphone at the ongoing Mobile World Congress. The smartphone comes with a 21:9 CinemaWide 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED display and is powered by X1 processor seen in Sony’s high-end TVs.
The viewing experience is further enriched by Dolby Atmos sound technology. The company has also added a ‘Game Enhancer’ profile that optimises the performance and blocks unwanted notifications, as well as enabling you to record gameplay and find tips for your game online.
The Xperia 1 comes with a triple lens camera (12MP) for any situation and light conditions, 16mm for wide landscapes, a versatile 26mm lens and a 52mm lens telephoto shooting (35mm equivalent). Sony has also inherited BIONZ X technology found in high-end DSLR in the Xperia 1 mobile. The algorithm enables the world’s first Eye AF (Auto Focus) in a smartphone to bring the sharp focus exactly to the level of eyes and also delivers continuous burst shooting with up to 10 fps AF/AE tracking (Auto Focus and Auto Exposure) to give you precision focus and optimal exposure.
The Xperia 1 is encased in a sleek metal frame and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on front and back, and is IP65/IP68 certified water resistance.
The smartphone is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. This latest mobile platform offers high-speed Gigabit LTE capability, up to 25 per cent faster CPU and up to 40 per cent GPU performance as compared to the previous generation, and Snapdragon Elite Gaming, for handling processor-intensive apps and games with ease.
The high capacity 3,330 mAh battery, combined with Smart Stamina, Battery Care and Xperia Adaptive Charging, is designed to keep you powered throughout the day.
The Sony Xperia 1 ships runs in Android 9 Pie and will be available in select markets in late 2019.
