While Sony is in trouble in the smartphone segment, its MWC 2019 had provided some reassurance. In particular thanks to the presentation of the Xperia 1, which represented a nice step forward after too many years of stagnation.
Unfortunately, since this announcement, it has been radio silence or almost so while the other major manufacturers have been unveiling their flagship with great pomp and circumstance. The competition will be tough, of course, but this Xperia 1 clearly has some advantages to offer.
First of all, its 6.5-inch OLED 4K display, 3,840 x 1,644 pixels, 21:9 format and HDR compatible. The processor is an 855 Snapdragon, supported by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, expandable up to 512GB with a microSD card.
The 3,300 mAh battery is compatible with fast charging. No fingerprint sensor under the screen, though, as Sony has decided to keep its sensor on the right side of the device, like the Samsung Galaxy S10e.
For the photo, the brand opts for 3 12 MP sensors, with X2 optical zoom and wide angle lens. The front sensor is 8 MP.
The Sony Xperia 1 will be available from July 12 in the United States in black or purple. It should arrive shortly afterwards in Europe, including France. Still, count $949 to buy yourself this little toy.
