Sony Xperia XZ1 G8342 is the first Android smartphone with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. The all-metal phone is a flagship Xperia model and going through the Xperia XZ1 Specifications, it packs a 5.2 inch full HD Triluminous HDR display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. It also features Motion Eye Camera which records slow motion videos at 960 frames per second.
Under the hood, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB onboard storage. It’s a hybrid dual SIM handset(works with any GSM network) and includes a micro SD card support with 256 GB card support.
Coming to the camera, we have a stunning 13-megapixel front snapper for selfies with f/2.0 aperture and 19 megapixel f/2.0 rear camera supporting 4K video recording with EIS, predictive phase detection, and laser autofocus. It has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Sadly Sony has missed out US warranty for it(as per the Amazon listing).
A non-removable 2700 mAh battery keeps the light on the device and device gets IP68 certification for being water and dust proof handset.
