The Sony Xperia 1 in the news

Sony Xperia 1 Product details

The Sony Xperia 1 is the top model announced by Sony for 2019. It is the first smartphone with a 4K OLED display and the first Xperia with a 21:9 ratio. In addition, there are again top specifications on camera, video and audio. What exactly and what benefits this can have for you we are going to explain here.

CinemaWide is first 4K OLED

First innovation is the screen. It is the first time that Sony applies a 21:9 screen ratio. That is also used in the cinema and now Sony is active there as well. Funny detail also is that you can shoot video in this aspect ratio so you can feel like a Hollywood director. Besides being remarkably elongated, this is the first OLED panel in a smartphone with an unprecedented high 4K resolution. Even on a 6.5-inch panel, you won't be able to see individual pixels with the naked eye. Non4K content is upscaled via Sony's X1 engine and additional colours are upgraded to 10-bit HDR thanks to remaster technology. If these terms don't mean anything to you, take it from us that images are razor-sharp, colorful, with lots of detail and full of contrast.

Eye AF in a phone

There are also improvements in the camera area. The back of Xperia 1 has 3 cameras, each with a 12 megapixel sensor but with different lenses. Sony is a big player in the camera field, especially the Alpha cameras with interchangeable lenses are miles ahead of the competition. It's not surprising that this team helped in the development of the Xperia 1. There is a 26 millimeter lens for everyday use, 52 millimeter lens for 2x optical zoom and a super wide angle lens of 16 millimeter. One for each situation. Special attention has been paid to autofocus. It has to be so fast that you can get a sharp picture even with fast moving subjects. Eye AF automatically and rapidly focuses on eyes for the perfect portrait photo. In burst mode you can shoot up to 10 photos per second, all sharp.

Main Sony Xperia 1 specifications

  • OLED 6.5-inch screen with 4K resolution and HDR colors
  • 12 + 12 + 12 megapixel camera with super wide angle, portrait and telephoto zoom lens
  • Sharp 13 megapixel selfiecam with 84 degrees wide angle f/2 lens.0
  • Powerful Snapdragon 855 processor + 6 GB of working memory
  • Simultaneously insert 2 SIM cards that are both active

Audio, build quality and speed; all in order

Other functions aren't nauseous either. There's Dolby Atmos support for sound that surrounds you, built-in stereo speakers, high-resolution DSEE HX support and wireless LDAC. The Xperia 1 is sandwiched between two sheets of Gorilla Glass 6 and is IP65/68 water and dust resistant. Like its predecessor, the Xperia XZ3, the edge is touch-sensitive. It lets you access the Side Sense menu with shortcuts to your most favorite apps or operations. Of course the '1' uses the most powerful Qualcomm processor that was available during construction; the Snapdragon 855. With 6 GB of working memory and 3330 mAh large battery, that should be enough to go fast and long. Too bad Sony left out the 3.5mm audio jack port for your own headphones.
