Sony announced today that its upcoming Xperia 1 flagship smartphone will launch July 12 in the U.S. The phone will be available through Best Buy, Amazon, B&H Photo, Focus Camera, and other retailers.
Be prepared to open your wallets for the Xperia 1 — the phone will cost $949.99 when it launches. Even though similarly-powered flagships cost just as much in the U.S., Sony’s poor performance in the smartphone space is enough for some to perform a double-take.
Announced during MWC 2019, the Xperia 1 features a 6.5-inch OLED display with 4K resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio. The aspect ratio makes the phone taller than most, though it makes the display great for movie-watching.
Elsewhere, the Xperia 1 features three rear 12MP cameras with varying focal lengths, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, a 3,330mAh battery, and Android 9 Pie.
