This is the third flagship phone from Sony this year to launch in India after the Sony Xperia XZs and the Xperia XZ Premium. The wonderful handset also has 19 mega pixel Exmor RS sensing element with the capability to shoot slo-mo videotape recording at 960 frames per second, projecting capture and 4K video. However, in India this price might see a slight hike.

While Sony's rivals Apple, LG, and Samsung have done away with bezels in their smartphone designs, it is interesting to note that the Xperia XZ1 still has thick bezels both above and below the display. The Sony Xperia Z1 was launched globally alongside the Xperia XZ1 Compact and the Xperia XA1 Plus. The series got rolled out earlier this month during IFA 2017 meeting in the German capital, Berlin. The main camera has the triple image sensing technology as well. It is powered by Snapdragon 835 processor, coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.


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.

The smartphone comes with a loop surface design and sports a 5.2-inch Full HD HDR display with Triluminos, X-reality picture engine and dynamic contrast enhancement. If the pricing for the Sony Xperia XZ1 goes accordingly, the OEM might make a good comeback in the Indian flagship smartphone market. The phone also has a microSD card to increase storage (up to 256GB). It is further protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top of the screen.


Another highlight of the Xperia XZ1 is that it ships with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and becomes the first smartphone apart from Google Pixels and Nexus devices to boot Android Oreo. The device is fitted with a 2700 mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick charge 3.0 complaint. But, the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) is missing this time also on Sony mobiles.

In terms of connectivity, the India version will feature dual SIM card capability with 4G LTE and VoLte. The smartphone is water and dust resistant with an IP68 certification.


Available on four different colors such as Black, Warm Silver, Venus Pink, Moonlit Blue.
