Sony Xperia XZ1 arrives in the US

Sony's most anticipated phone Xperia XZ1 is finally launching in India

The event is scheduled to be hosted in Delhi and that's when pricing and availability details will be announced.

Sonu Xperia XZ1 is the first device to ship with Android Oreo out of the box. Finally, this phone will enter the market by the end of September 2017 in India. The front-facing camera further supports Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and smart selfie flash, which helps in taking selfies in low-light conditions. All Xperia XZ1 color variants will cost $699.99. The user will then be able to use your avatar with the camera as augmented reality and record a video in MP4 format. The rear camera, with 5-axis stabilisation, is capable of slow-motion video recording at 960fps, similar to that in the Xperia XZ Premium, as well as 4K video recording. They may unveil the dual-SIM model phone in India. For the front, there is a 16-megapixel shooter with 23mmm wide-angle lens. There is also a fingerprint sensor on the Home button of the phone.

This phone sports the metal surface along with the "flagship loop surface". Also, the display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The handset is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core SoC paired with Mali T880 MP2 900MHz GPU and 4GB RAM. It comes with 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage that can be expanded up to 256GB via micro SD card slot. The connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, USB OTG, USB Type-C, Bluetooth, and Global Positioning System.

The power key houses the fingerprint scanner but it is disabled in the U.S. due to ongoing patent issues. So the expected price of Sony Xperia XZ1 in India will be in between this range. This phone also has the Qualcomm's aptX audio software.

The price of Sony Xperia XZ1 in the United States is $699.99 which is approximately equal to Rs.45,000. Interested parties can grab this high-end phone in Black, Moonlit Blue, Pink or Warm Silver. Dimensionally, the handset measures 148 x 73 x 7.4 mm and weighs 156 grams. In the Indian smartphone market, the Xperia XZ1 will likely to be priced somewhere in between the Rs 48,000 and Rs 50,000.
