Sony Xperia XZ1, XA1 Plus available in Kingdom soon

Sony Xperia XZ1, XA1 Plus available in Kingdom soon

As we've come to expect from Sony phones, high-res audio support is also on board here, with its proprietary DSEE HX tech for upscaling compressed recordings. Trying to lure consumers into buying its new handsets, Sony released promo videos for each of them.

We're pleased to report that Sony has brought waterproofing back to the Compact range so the phone has an IP65/68 rating so it can be fully submersed in fresh water without worry. We've never been huge fans of Sony's custom UI, finding it overbearing compared with the vanilla Android experience, but some of the added apps are a bonus. The two smartphones come with refreshed designs, Android Oreo out of the box and the Snapdragon 835 processor. Moreover, you also get 2700 mAh battery which is the same as its bigger Xperia XZ1. Like most of the premium Sony smartphones, the device does offer IP68 dust and water resistance rating. Wrapping up the premium design are four new colors, each inspired by natural light and the attractive arrival of the changing tones as morning arrives; Moonlit Blue, Venus Pink, Warm Silver, and our classic Black.

The front camera is 13MP with a 1/3.06-inch lens on the XZ1 and an 18MP 1/4-inch lens on the Compact.

Coming in White, Gold, and Black, and Xperia XA1 Plus will be available this autumn. In addition to predictive capture, the camera is capable of taking super slow motion videos at 960 fps, and has "Steady shot" with Intelligent Active Mode 5-axis stabilization to help with taking videos. The Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact will launch worldwide at the end of September with Android 8 Oreo, for respectively EUR 699 and EUR 599, while the Xperia XA1 Plus will launch later this autumn for EUR 349. It is powered by Octa-Core Snapdragon 835 with Adreno 540 GPU. The screen is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Plus the built in Digital Noise Cancelling (DNC) technology reduces exterior noise by up to 98% when paired with DNC headphones for undisturbed listening. The smartphone's rear camera can scan an object and save the file as a 3D image which you can then share on a social network or even print via a 3D printer.

But it's a fairly certain bet that the prime focus will be on a new flagship Sony Xperia device, so read on for full details of how to catch the action live.

With such a small screen size, the Xperia XZ1 Compact is the only smartphone on the market with such massive raw power. "The Compact's selfie camera is a little different though; an 8MP Exmor RS sensor with a 1/4" sensor size and an extra-wide-angle lens with adjustable FOV from 80-degrees up to 120-degrees for those panoramic "grelfies".

Both phones have a 2,700mAh battery though, so there's no change there.

The front camera is a little different to the larger XZ1 and is created to appeal to a market of users who take selfies.
