Sony once again made us get up early at the world telephony reference event, MWC. The company launched into the presentation of its flagship, this time Leaving aside the XZ nomenclature and going directly to be called Xperia 1. In this way the firm leaves aside something that has accompanied it since its inception but does not leave out the numbers so it is possible that over time it will regret it and put those recognized acronyms "XZ" back on its devices, or not.
In any case, what we have today on the first day of MWC is a lot of movement taking into account that the strong days were yesterday Sunday, today the day is not falling short. We started at 8:30 am and Sony showed us a device with a somewhat improved design but not something very different from what we already know about the brand. Let's see some of the most important details of this new Xperia 1.
The Xperia 1 with 4k screen
For many it may be unnecessary and for others an important evolution in their smartphones. Sony put aside the 6-inch screen to add half an inch more on this arriving model up to 6,5 inches with a modified aspect ratio up to 21: 9 thanks to the reduction of the front frame. That added to the fact that it is an OLED panel with 4k resolution It makes you fear about the capacity of your battery and if it will hold a day of work, in any case the firm confirms that it does.
When we talk about processors the king in this MWC 2019 is undoubtedly the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Sony is not far behind in this regard adding the most powerful processor. On the other hand we see how the trend of most firms is to add more RAM to their devices and in this case the new Xperia does not reach 12 GB but they go up from 4 GB of the previous model to 6 GB of RAM.
The capacity of these new Xperia 1 increases from 64GB to 128GB for entry models so Sony is also firm on capacity issues. On the other hand, it adds the memory card option that other manufacturers are leaving aside and in this case with a maximum of 512GB.
Triple camera on the rear
Sony's bet is also for the triple camera on the back with a 1.6-inch aperture angle, a wide angle and the TV. In this case we have a 26mm sensor for the wide angle, a 16mm for the wide angle and the 52mm tele which makes the camera of this new Xperia 1 a good device for taking photos. Something that does not surprise us either. On the front we find an 8MP sensor without autofocus.
We found with IP68 certification, a battery of 3.300 mAh That puts in doubt the power to reach the end of the day with a screen of more than 6 ″ AMOLED and 4K, and a Gorilla Glass 6 glass that protects the equipment. In the design we do see a bit of a change compared to the previous more curved models, but it is not a big change either. By the way, from "Fold" nothing on Sony.
