Sony Xperia XZ1 is set to reach all the corners in India today on 25th September 2017, Monday.

Sony recently launched the XA1 Plus smartphone for Rs. 24,990 in the country and the launch date of the Xperia XZ1 Compact is still unknown. Internationally, the device is priced at $699 (INR 44,900) so, according to their previous pricing strategy, the device might be priced around INR 50,000.

To recall, the smartphone was announced at the IFA 2017 event in Berlin along with Xperia XZ1 Compact. These premium phones will definitely give a tough competition to the Sony Xperia XZ1. The battery on the Xperia XZ1 has been reduced in size from the one in the Xperia XZs, so you get a 2,700mAh cell inside.

Hardware aside, Sony seems to be the first smartphone manufacturer to offer Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

Other than that, the device features a 5-axis stabilisation which enables slow-motion video recording at 960fps.

The device comes with an internal storage option of 64GB which can also be expanded by a MicroSD card of capacity up to 256GB. For the front, there is a 13-megapixel Exmor RS sensor with 22mm wide angle lens and aperture f/2.0.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 has a fingerprint scanner embedded on the power button (however, Sony says that its availability may not be available in all markets), found at the right side of the smartphone. The primary camera consists of a 19 MP Motion eye camera featuring a 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS mobile memory stacked sensor. The connectivity options in the smartphone comprise 4G LTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB OTG, USB Type-C, and Global Positioning System among others. The device is backed by a 2700mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.

The Xperia XZ1 has a premium aluminum unibody design and is IP68 certified for water and dust resistance. For sound, the company has added high-resolution audio, DSEE HX, digital noise cancelling, clear audio+, stereo speaker, and Qualcomm aptX HD audio. The Xperia XZ1 will be available in Moonlit Blue, Venus Pink, Warm Silver, and Black colours.
