As a high-tech company with multiple divisions, Sony can download technologies from different devices to build products with unique qualities. At Mobile World Congress 2019, the company introduced its new flagship smartphone offering, the Xperia X1, which uses technologies developed by at least three divisions by Sony. Based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855, the new Xperia 1 features an exclusive OLED 21: 9 format, 4K resolution and wide color gamut.
The screen is one of the key components that define the Xperia 1 smartphone. The 6.5-inch 21: 9 8 + 2-bit OLED display used by the handset is of course quite long and narrow, making the shape of the phone different from other devices on the market. The screen has a resolution of 3840 x 1
An advanced 12 MP triple objective camera consisting of a 26 mm regular RGB, 16 mm wide angle and a 52 mm telesensor is another important feature of Xperia 1. The camera uses algorithms that were first developed for Sony's α (Alpha) digital still cameras as well as Sony's CineAlta cameras used to record movies. In particular, the camera supports Eye AF technology to focus precisely on the level of eyes, supports burst shooting with up to 10 fps AF / AE tracking and can shoot in 4K HDR at 24 fps with different color settings.
Meanwhile, there is an 8 MP camera for selfies on the front.
The smartphone also supports Dolby Atmos via its USB-C headphone output while the speakers were set by Sony Pictures Entertainment specialists.
When it comes to overall performance and platform features, Xperia 1 is based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC paired with 6GB LPDDR4X as well as 64 or 128 GB NAND flash memory. Smartphone does not support 5G, but still supports Gigabit 4G / LTE, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS, Galileo and other advanced platform functionality. For complete specifications please refer to the table below.
As mentioned above, the 21: 9 aspect ratio on the screen shows that the Sony Xperia X1 smartphone looks different from other handsets with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 or 16: 9. The handset is very long , but its width is similar to Apple's iPhone 7 (see picture below). That said, it is very comfortable to hold, but it is uneasy to hold a pocket in a shirt. Meanwhile, the Xperia 1's build quality is very solid, and it is IP65 / IP68 dust / waterproof (up to 1.5m for 30 minutes) while the screen is protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass 6.  The relatively Large dimensions of the Xperia 1 smartphone enabled Sony to install a 3330 mAh battery in Xperia 1. The battery can be charged using a USB 3.1 Type-C interface or using a Qi wireless charger.
