Xperia XZ1 Compact on sale next week

Sony has added a 19MP Motion Eye camera to the Xperia XZ1, which is the world's first smartphone to capture images in 3D with the in-built 3D creator.

Both the devices are IP68 certified water and dust resistant which enables them to be submerged in up to 1.5-metres water for a maximum of 30 minutes.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 bestows a 5.2-inch FHD 1080p HDR Triluminos Display with the Sony X-Reality engine and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. On the front, you have a 13 MP camera with a 1/3.06-inch Exmor RS image sensor. The fingerprint scanner is on the power/standby button, which is placed in the centre of the right-hand edge.

The price of Sony Xperia XZ1 in India is Rs.44,990.

Tremor of 3.4 Detected Near NKorea Nuclear Test Site
Hours earlier, Pyongyang claimed its leader had inspected a hydrogen bomb meant for a new intercontinental ballistic missile. The US move came after North Korea's foreign minister boasted his country may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean.

Sony claims that this device is the most compact flagship device as no other small device sports the Snapdragon 835 processor. Nothing is been mentioned about the compact variant yet which is expected to be made available soon.

This is a first non-Google phone which will come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Cut to 2017, the same familiar design now seems underwhelming and nowhere close to what Samsung and LG have pulled off with the phones such as the Galaxy Note 8 and LG G6. Under the hood, it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, an Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, a 4GB RAM, a 64GB internal memory that is expandable by up to 256GB via microSD card, and a 2,700mAh battery with fast battery charging (Quick Charge 3.0).

In terms of design, Sony's premium smartphones haven't changed much since the launch of Xperia Z in 2013. Available in black, the new XZ1 comes with a side stand cover, available as a bundle offer with the phone for an additional ₹2,490. At the top, there is a front camera along with earpiece, while the on-screen navigation controls are at the base. Features of interest include 3D capture, which lets you scan objects or people in 3D and then share across different platforms and media. For connectivity, the XZ1 has 4G with VoLTE, dual-band WiFi ac, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC. But with this generation's flagships costing over Rs 60,000, it is a relief to see Sony at a sub-Rs 50k price point.
