The Xperia 1 Pushes Display Limits with its 4K HDR Panel

What do you do if you refuse to go for the notch route and the hole-punch approach to stand out of the crowd? For Sony, that involves creating a phone with an extra tall display in the form of the Xperia 1.

A successor to last year’s Xperia XZ3, the Xperia 1’s standout feature is its 21:9 CinemaWide OLED display. It is huge at 6.5 inches, and comes with 4K HDR resolution, making it one heck of a display—literally and figuratively. The choice to go extra tall is for multitasking purposes and for watching videos and playing games.

Being a flagship phone, you get flagship features on the Xperia 1: Snapdragon 855, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, IP68 rating, and a triple rear camera setup consisting of three 12-megapixel cameras: 26mm wide lens, 52mm telephoto lens, and 16mm ultrawide lens. The wide and telephoto lens get OIS for blur-free shots.

  1. Does anyone remember z5 premium? It came out with QHD 4k resolution with an overheating 810 soc. My friend bought that for 46k cash and was the most expensive phone at the time (2015) and she regretted it ever since. Lesson learned, you cant really utilize a 4k phone, if you cant download or stream 4k content.
