With numerous handsets being unveiled at the moment, such as the Sony Xperia XY, the LG V30, and Samsung Note 8 likely to be still current by the time P rolls around, it's reassuring to see that plans are already underway.
Connectivity suite of the Sony Xperia XZ1 offers support for Bluetooth 5.0, USB 3.1, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector, USB Host.
Last time around, Sony compromised the Xperia X compact by giving it inferior hardware as compared to the full size flagship.
Sony also won't be partnering with any carriers to help bring these phones to the masses. In addition, Sony has upgraded the resolution to FHD and a much improved battery in XA1 Plus. It'll be offered in black, silver, blue, and pink. You have give Sony props, however, for refusing to budge or even refusing to change its strategy. Like a number of other 2017 flagship phones, the XZ1 pair has IP68 certification for dust and water resistance. In terms of colors, the two will be available in pink, silver, black and blue, but don't expect all four colors to be available in all markets across the globe.
Combining advanced processing power with super-fast download speeds, Xperia XZ1's memory-stacked Exmor RS image sensor pushes motion capture to the next level and produces exceptional image quality. Priced at $700 and $600 respectively, Sony's 5.2-inch and 4.6-inch handsets look like interesting alternatives to the stampede of Apple and Samsung devices.
The company also sports the latest in Sony's proprietary super-slow-motion technology, something it's been pushing for a while now, which captures video at a ridiculous 960 frames per second - and the results are pretty stunning.
The Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact is expected to release later this year.
Sony is making a big deal of 3D scanning for the XZ1 and XZ1 Compact, although this is more a software feature.
Claiming to be a first for the smartphone world, this app lets users capture high-quality 3D scans of objects in just one minute using four scan modes; head scan, face scan, food scan, and freeform scan.
It has DSEE HX, LDAC, Digital Noise Cancelling. It also features a 8-megapixel 23mm wide-angle front-facing camera to get more of your friends into a selfie. The screen is reduced in size and resolution to 4.6 inches 720p HD, an acceptable compromise for some when it comes to handiness. Battery 2700 mAh, according to the manufacturer, should be enough for a day of active use. One of its features is better still than its bigger sibling, in that it has a wide-angle front-facing camera that can capture images reaching about twice as wide as most front-facing units. The Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact will be selling at a price of $699.99 (approx Rs. 45,000) and $599.99 (approx Rs 38,500) respectively in the U.S. market.
