The new Sony smartphone, Xperia 1, will stand out on any shelf by its atypical height for a smartphone.
After a fairly long break and many rumors about the uncertain future of its smartphone division, Sony officially unveiled its new flagship at the Mobile World Congress 2019.
With a 21: 9 image ratio, Xperia 1 is a very tall smartphone and the first smartphone with a 6.5-inch OLED 4K HDR screen.
The actual height of the new Sony smartphone is 6.57 inches. For comparison, the iPhone XS has a height of 5.65 inches.
Sony claims that Xperia 1’s very high screen has at least three advantages over the rest of the smartphones. First, because most applications have a vertical orientation, more screen content will be visible.
Second, multi-tasking, which involves displaying more vertical applications, will be more comfortable. Finally, movies that are recorded on a wide format will be better framed in such a screen.
Xperia 1’s photo camera consists of three 12-MP cameras – a tele room (52 mm focal length), a wide (26 mm) and a super wide (16 mm) camera.
The new Sony smartphone, which will be officially launched in March for an unannounced price, is based on the Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage space, a 3,300mAh battery and is waterproof.
