Sony’s next flagship Xperia 1 smartphone will be available for preorder starting June 28th. If you pre-order between 6/28-7/12 you will be eligible to receive a free pair of their WH1000XM3 headphones. I will go on record and say they are some of the best noise cancelling headphones I have personally used the past year and its interesting Sony is giving them away with their latest handset.
Besides that the Xperia 1 features an eyepopping 4K OLED display which is a first in a smartphone and will have a 21:9 CinemaWide panel measuring 6.5″. Xperia 1 will work on GSM networks and is certified to work on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
Xperia 1 launches on July 12th and will be available at Best Buy, Amazon, B&H, Focus Camera, Beach Camera and other retailers. Pricing will be a lofty $949.99
Xperia 1 delivers cinematic aspect ratio and accurate color reproduction, for a viewing experience that is true to the creators’ intention. Inspired by Master Monitor color reproduction from Sony’s professional technology, which is used in leading Hollywood studio productions, Xperia 1 lets you experience unprecedented color accuracy with its new Creator mode to bring content to life exactly as it was envisioned. Compatible with Sony’s Imaging Edge application, instantly transfer videos and still images from your camera to Xperia 1 while shooting so you’re able to check the quality or upload to social media instantly.
This ultimate viewing experience is further enhanced by Dolby Atmos, tuned in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment, transporting you into the story with moving audio that flows above and around you with breathtaking realism. Rounding off the entertainment experience is Game Enhancer, which optimizes Xperia 1’s performance and blocks unwanted notifications, as well as enabling the user to record gameplay and find tips for games online.
