Sony Xperia 1: Features | Specifications

Hollywood meets the modern smartphone in the ultra-tall Sony Xperia 1.

2018 saw a number of smartphone manufacturers expand beyond the standard widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, designing their phones with a taller 19:9 ratio to deliver more screen real estate without pushing the width into two-hand territory.

In 2019, Sony is going a step further with the Xperia 1, a 6.5-inch smartphone with an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio. This makes it one of the tallest phones on the market. Not only that, it’s one of a scant few phones to feature a full 4K display, making for one of the sharpest screens currently available on a mobile device.


  • Full 4K display.
  • Ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio.


  • Triple 12MP rear camera array.
  • 21:9 video recording.


  • Snapdragon 855 should provide plenty of grunt.
  • 6GB of RAM is solid if unremarkable.


  • 3,330mAh battery.
  • Adaptive charging to increase battery lifespan.
