Sony Xperia XZ1 Lands On Vodafone

Sony Xperia XZ1 Lands On Vodafone

That being said Sony's design philosophy has remained unchanged and probably that has started to show signs of ageing.

In terms of hardware, the Sony Xperia XZ1 is packing a Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor coupled with an Adreno 540 GPU.

Sony has been facing a drought in nearly all segments of smartphones.

Another feature which Sony is focusing on with Sony Xperia XZ1 is the 3D scanning feature.

The Xperia XZ1 measures 148 x 73 x 7.4 mm and weighs 156gm. The metal build makes it sturdy and solid and the size is easy to grip. The Sony typical fingerprint scanner in the power button is on the right-hand side.

While the XZ1's display is not as impressive as the one found on the XZ Premium which had an insane 4K resolution, it is fairly capable nonetheless.

This flagship model from the Sony features a 5.2-inch Triluminous full HD display covered with Gorilla Glass 5.


The camera has a lot going on and we will have to test it in detail to get an idea of how all the features perform in the real world scenario. It is expected that the high-end smartphone to cost upwards of Rs 55,000 in India. Sony has talked length and breadth about this new feature. On the rear, you have the Xperia branding in the centre and the camera module on the top left-hand corner. The 13MP front supports 1080p video recording.

The device also has a 2GB RAM, a 32GB/128GB/256GB internal memory (no microSD card slot), a 12MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, digital zoon (up to 5x), Optical image Stabilisation, six-element lens, and Quad-LED True Tone flash, a 7MP front-snapper with ƒ/2.2 aperture and auto image stabilization, and a 1,960mAh battery.

For the selfie camera Sony features a 13Megapixel camera module with an aperture of f/2.0 and a wide angle lens for broader coverage. Connectivity options of the phone include 4G LTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB OTG and USB Type-C. This means that the phone can be submersed underwater for up to 30 minutes at depths of up to 1.5 metres. We need to thoroughly review it to try out the different Oreo features incorporated in the XZ1. Accidentally dunk your phone underwater? It's easier when you're scanning an object instead of a face. According to Sony, it takes approximately 30 to 60 seconds to take a scan and there is no post processing involved.

The scanned objects can then be shared on messenger apps using 3D stickers or uploaded to 3D communities such as Sketchfab. It is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor. Applications range from recreation to in-game avatars. However, unlike these smartphones, Sony Xperia XZ1 is priced much lower at Rs 44,990. However, do not expect a clean Android Oreo OS, as it comes with the Sony Xperia skin atop it.

At a time when the majority of the competition is offering bezel-less design along with some sleek and compact look, Sony is still stuck with its so-called Loop surface design.

The XZ1 comes with Sony technologies like Clear Audio + and DSEE HX. Moonlit Blue, Venus Pink, Warm Silver, and Black colours and will be available from Monday both online and offline. ( original price - Rs 3,490).
