Sony Xperia XZ1 with Android 8.0 Oreo launched in India Rs. 44990

It comes with HDR screen and 19 MP rear camera.

The Japanese tech giant Sony has finally launched its flagship Xperia XZ1 smartphone in India today.

The XZ1 is not a big departure from Sony smartphones of ols but more of an iterative refresh. The thick bezels on the top and bottom again look out of vogue in an era of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG V30 and so on. The old three piece construction found on the Xperia XZ and XZs however has been replaced by a new metal unibody two piece setup on the XZ1.

The U11 flaunts a 12-megapixel rear camera of aperture f/1.7 with HTC's UltraPixel technology, 5-axis OIS, EIS, and 4K video recording support. The phone also has side mounted fingerprint sensor on the power button.

The base has the USB Type-C port whereas the top features the 3.5mm audio jack. During our brief usage, it took us a long time before we got one scan right. During our brief testing, the texts were crisp and the viewing angles were good as well. With flagship specifications, the phone comes with Sony's Motion Eye camera and an HDR Triluminous display. In one second the XZ1 camera can click 10 photos and it comes with predictive capture features like face expression features and super slow motion video. On the front, you have a 13 MP camera with a 1/3.06-inch Exmor RS image sensor. Then there is Predictive Capture with simile shutter feature. This is done through the dedicated 3D Creator app. The company has already sent out media invites for an launch event. The company says that it will open myriad opportunities in various departments like clothing, healthcare etc.

The XZ1 hit stores at the end of September and boasts the world's first smartphone 3D scanner. Users can scan by following the instructions and the app will create a 3D scan of the object. We'll probably hear more about it sooner rather than later. The device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, which is coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

This is a first non-Google phone which will come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

The phone made waves at IFA as it is the only smartphone launching with Android Oreo out of the box. The battery could be a major concern here for some and it would be interesting to see, how well does it perform during our testing period. For audio, the smartphone comes with Hi-Res Audio, digital noise cancellation, S-Force surround sound, stereo recording, and Qualcomm's own aptX audio software. For connectivity, the XZ1 has 4G with VoLTE, dual-band WiFi ac, Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC.
