Sony Xperia fans rejoice! The Japanese electronics company has not forsaken Malaysia! The initial inklings of the company leaving the Malaysian market have turned out to just be hearsay. The company is making their much anticipated return with their flagship Xperia 1. The Xperia 1 was initially announced at 2019’s Mobile World Congress (MWC).
The new Sony flagship smartphone is the first smartphone from the manufacturer to bring together all of Sony’s award winning technologies in one compact package. The Xperia 1 is the first smartphone in Sony’s arsenal to bring Sony Alpha’s BIONZ X technology which optimises Sony’s camera technology for mobile devices. In addition, the Xperia 1 also features a first of its kind 21:9 CinemaWide display with 4K resolution.
The Sony Xperia 1 comes packed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which promises a good amount of processing power with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. It has a 6.5-inch OLED display which is paired with Dolby Atmos sound.
The Xperia 1 will be making an appearance at the Sony Expo which will be happening at Midvalley Megamall from August 30, 2019 until September 1, 2019.
