The Sony Xperia 1 (Previously known as Sony Xperia XZ4) is the evolution of the XZ Premium phones. It sports the first-ever 4K OLED display with an extra tall 21:9 aspect ratio as well as Sony’s first triple camera.
The 6.5-inch display is called CinemaWide for more than its aspect ratio. It combines the X1-style image processing (borrowed from premium Bravia TVs) with the color calibration of Sony’s professional master monitors.
The display has 3,840 x 1,644px resolution and supports HDR (BT.2020). Amazon and Netflix already have 21:9 HDR content for you to enjoy and the experience will be further enhanced by Dolby Atmos sound (a first for Xperia) coming from the stereo speakers (earpiece + bottom firing speaker).
The rear camera features three 12MP modules. The main shooter sports a 1/2.6” sensor coupled to an f/1.6 lens with Optical SteadyShot (OIS+EIS) and Dual Pixel autofocus. The other two cameras allow you to zoom in (2x telephoto lens, 52mm) or out (ultra-wide lens, 16mm).
The Xperia 1 is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset with 6GB of RAM. The storage options are 64GB and 128GB, expandable with up to 512GB microSD cards.
The phone runs on a 3,330mAh battery with an Sony-developed Battery Care (slower overnight charging) and Smart Stamina mode. The phone supports USB Power Delivery, though there won’t be such a charger in the box.
The new flagship is IP68 waterproof as is tradition and it upgrades to Gorilla Glass 6 for the front and back (the chassis is metal, of course). There’s a fingerprint reader on the side and this time around it’s separate from the Power button.
