Sony Mobile's latest additions to its premium XZ range are the XZ1 and XZ1 Compact. It will retail for INR 3,490. Meanwhile, on the front, there is a 13MP selfie snapper which comes with f/2.0 and 22mm wide-angle lens.

According to the company the smartphone will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo starting September, and by today's launch it seems that the shipment will start end of this month. The phone is backed by a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 256GB via micro SD card slot.

In the USA, the Sony Xperia XZ1 is priced at $699.99 (roughly Rs. 45,000), and one can expect a fair premium on that price tag when it's brought to India. From there users can choose to utilize it as a wallpaper, print a 3D model, share it on social media, project it onto the real world for some AR fun, and morph it with a teddy bear or alien's body.

The display features Sony's Triluminous display and X-Reality technology which is found on their television display but is specifically tweaked for mobiles. On the connectivity front, the Xperia XZ1 supports 4G LTE with Cat16 (with up to 1Gbps download speed), Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port and MIMO WiFi. The Xperia XZ1 has a 2700mAh backing it with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology. But with this generation's flagships costing over Rs 60,000, it is a relief to see Sony at a sub-Rs 50k price point.
