Sony, one of the most famous brands, is now trying to get into the ‘cool kids’ club in smartphone world.
After last year’s exclusion, in which Sony phones launched the design that not all people fancy of, Sony Xperia made a comeback with a new product. It is refreshing but still retaining Sony trademarks.

Based on the specs, Xperia 1 uses Snapdragon 855 chipset powered by 8GB RAM and 64/128GB internal storage. It is a beast that can be used for heavy-gaming and various multitasking without lag.
This new phone has a really long screen; it’s 21 : 9 CinemaWide 6.5” with 4K HDR OLED. The good news is: the screen is not using notch that takes up its space.
On top of that, the screen uses BRAVIA engine just like the one in Sony TV so it will give an amazing color representation. Sony claims that this screen has a color setup that it can be used as reference monitor for professional’s use like a desktop monitor.
Not only astonishing specs, for this line-up Sony gives the Xperia 1 with three set cameras: normal, super-wide and telezoom lens.
The other variants like Xperia 10 and Xperia 10+ use two sets of cameras: normal and super wide lens. Sony does not forget to give a camera button too so one can use their phone like a pocket camera.
All of these features are such a good move from Sony and as a result, they have managed to take a step forward in the competitive mobile industry markets. I hope people can see Sony Xperia device can stand up once more in their glory as they once prevailed in the past.
