At the Mobile World Congress event in late February 2017, Sony fans had a chance to witness the official reveal of Sony Xperia X1. Not having to wait longer, soon they will be able to order this mid-range smartphone in the United States on the 1st of May. To start pre-orders, customers will have to pay $299.99 for an unlocked smartphone, which has also been sold in other regions, including India.
Sony Xperia X1 features a 5-inch 720p display together with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It is also said to run on a 64-bit MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processor. In terms of memory, the smartphone comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of on-board storage, which can be expandable to 256 GB of additional storage via a microSD card.
Another striking feature of the Sony Xperia XA1 is its rear camera. It is equipped with a 23 MP 1/2.3-inch Exmor RS sensor, which can support wonderful low-light performances at ISO 6400. In addition, the rear camera also uses a 24 mm wide-angle F2.0 lens. Apart from the 8 MP front-facing camera, the phone supports us with a 2,300 mAh battery. However, it is a bit pitiful because of lacking a fingerprint sensor.
There will have a plenty of retail websites, notably Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo, Fry’s Electronics, and more, which can supply us this item. In the meanwhile, there are color variants for you to choose such as black, white, pink, and gold. Also, the Sony Xperia XA1 will cooperate with GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. In the time coming, Sony has intention of rolling out the Xperia XA1 Ultra with a larger 6-inch 1080p display as well as the Xperia XZ Premium, known as its latest flagship device. However, the price of both has not been officially announced.
