In a recent announcement at the Mobile World Congress, Sony has showcased the new line of Xperia smartphones including their flagship, the Xperia 1, Xperia 10 and the Xperia 10 Plus that come in as mid-range devices. The major eye-grabber in the smartphone is the longer display with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The Xperia also comes with a 4K OLED display which makes it the first in the world to have such high resolution on an OLED smartphone display. While every manufacturer is trying hard to cut down the bezels and make the display as seamless as possible, Sony has gone the other direction and retained a large bezel on the top while the bottom bezel is still pretty thin.
Sony Xperia 1

The display comes with support for HDR OLED CinemaWide format and is protected against breaks and scratches by Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

The Sony Xperia 1 is an entertainment-oriented device with a dedicated Game Enhancement mode, the device also comes with Dolby Atmos for a multi-dimensional audio experience.

The front camera is a 8MP sensor with a 84-degree wide angle lens. The battery on the device is of 3,300mAh capacity which does raise a few concerns given the display size and resolution.

The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset and has 3GB of RAM along with 64GB internal storage.
