Sony announced the Xperia 1 in February this year at Mobile World Congress (MWC), but back then, we didn't have the pricing and availability details of this phone in the US. Well, those gaps have just been filled.
The Sony Xperia 1 will come to the US on July 12 at $949.99. It will be available for purchase through Best Buy, Amazon, B&H Photo, Focus Camera, and other retail outlets in Black and Purple colors.
The Xperia 1 is powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC which is mated to 6GB RAM. However, one of the biggest highlights of this flagship is its 6.5-inch OLED CinemaWide display that has an aspect ratio of 21:9 and a resolution of 3840 x 1644 pixels.
The smartphone also sports a trio of 12MP cameras on its back and an 8MP sensor on the front. You can check out our hands-on review of the Sony Xperia 1 to know more about it.
: And on the same day the Xperia 1 becomes available to buy in stores Sony will also announce it's successor !!!
NO need to bigger battery, SONY battery tech is key with its unique battery performance.
I expect more from xperia 1, long time samsung user and really hope that sony is doing a better job, esp. at camera. Looking at the video, switching between cameras seems extremely lagging. A bit disappointed.
