At MWC-2019, Sony is trying to stand out with the same screen aspect by introducing new 21:9 display smartphones. The Xperia line-up, which has been struggling to top the sales charts for a while now, has newly launched its latest flagship – the Xperia 1 smartphone. It is presumably the first phone to feature a 4K OLED display with a new 21:9 aspect ratio. To recall, Sony was the first to feature a 2K display on its earlier released Xperia devices as well.
Sony had unveiled its flagship Xperia 1 and had also unveiled its new mid-range smartphones – the Sony Xperia 10 and 10 Plus, which all come with 21:9 displays. Sony Xperia 1 Comes with different color variant which is Purple, Black, Gray and White. 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). There’s a fingerprint reader on the side and this time around it’s separate from the Power button.
Xperia 1 features a 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED display in 21:9 ratio that makes the device look much more taller and there’s a noticeable bezel on the top for beholding the front-facing camera and sensor; however, there’s no bezel at the bottom and makes the screen edge-to-edge at bottom. Apart from the tall display, the Xperia 1 packs in the industry’s top-of-the-line specifications as well. It is powered by the latest Snapdragon 855 SoC followed by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, which also supports microSD expansion.
Xperia 1 features triple 12MP cameras on the rear that comprise of a wide, super-wide and telephoto lenses. On the front, the device features an 8MP selfie shooter. The phone is said to be shipping with Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box, and lastly, the Xperia 1 is kept alive by a 3300mAh battery. The price of the flagship Xperia 1 is yet to be known and is believed to be sold in the US in the late spring.
