MWC-2019: Sony Xperia 1

Sony rejected the conservatism of familiar solutions. The new generation of smartphones of the Japanese company, brought to Barcelona, ​​is new in many ways.

To begin with, they changed the nomenclature. Everyone was waiting for the flagship under the name Sony Xperia XZ4, and he came out under the laconic name Sony Xperia 1. It is curious how they plan to reflect the continuity in the names.

The “first number” is followed by adjutants: Models of the middle class Sony Xperia 10 and Sony Xperia 10 Plus. The company is positioning them as “premium”, which is a bit controversial, but it had a bright effect on the price. To this we will return.

All three devices stand out against the background.completely new screen - with an aspect ratio of 21: 9. Nobody has done so long so far that it is possible to talk about innovation without shame of conscience. The display is called “cinematic”, it is confirmed that it takes the viewing of video content to a new level.

In the tail weaves a page - Sony Xperia L3. The device of outstanding chips, characteristic of older models, did not receive, but on the whole quite decently. NFC, in particular, supports. The company has not announced the prices yet. Obviously, the device will be cheaper than Sony Xperia 10, but it’s obviously not necessary to count on the special modesty of the price tag.

Sony Xperia 1

The flagship smartphone Sony Xperia 1 is built on the basis of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and 6 GB of RAM that has already been presented in Barcelona several times.

The screen is the most interesting of the features.apparatus. The extra-long 6.5-inch OLED with a resolution of 1644 × 3840 is exceptionally good for watching movies in high quality. He was even given the appropriate name - CinemaWide. The screen boasts a 10-bit color depth (8 bits with 2 bits for a smooth transition) that can display many shades without layering.

From the point of view of multitasking, when you need to display two or more windows on the screen, such a solution is also unreasonable.

There are no cutouts in the screen, they did not save space, they did not refuse from the forehead - as a result, the smartphone turned out not weak - as much as 167 mm This is in no pocket completely fit.

The sound, of course, corresponds to the picture - a powerful sound. Dolby Atmos, High-Resolution Audio, support for free High-Resolution audio (LDAC).
