Sony’s New Device Reminds Me of a Chocolate Bar.

It looks like the reign of 18:9 aspect ratio devices is over! Well, at least for Sony.

Sony right now 👆🏽

The company announced three new smartphones with 21:9 aspect ratios— the flagship Xperia 1, and the super-midrange Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus.

 

However, the Xperia 1, in particular, caught my attention because it’s the first smartphone with a 4K OLED display all baked in that tall body that reminds me of a delicious chocolate bar:

I don’t how I feel about the tall display, but I can tell you how I felt when I saw some of the specs on the Xperia 1.

It was something similar to this:

Check it out below:

I wonder who agreed to put a 3300mAh battery in a 6.5-inch device, but in all fairness to Sony, the Xperia 1 also comes with a couple of features that might interest a lot of people.

For example, Sony added a “Creator Mode” powered by CineAlta, Sony’s digital movie camera brand. Sony states that this mode is inspired by Master monitor color reproduction and uses “industry-leading technology to ensure consistent color reproduction.” They have also included “Cinema Pro” mode which helps you create cinematic videos in 21:9 at 24fps. Third, Sony has packed an X1 chip to bring BRAVIA color and contrast to everything you watch on screen, and the Android UI is upscaled to 4K. Fourth, the company has a new RAW noise reduction algorithm which promises up to 10fps AF/AE tracking. Furthermore, the Xperia 1 has eye AF for better focus when taking portrait mode or high-speed shots.

So, the question of the day is, with all of these features and display, do you think the Sony Xperia X1 has what it takes to contend with others?

    HEY MISS TECHY
    Wow…
    This is amazing, love the edges.
    am sure it has that capacity for the 2019 challenge the features are up-to-date with the almost bezeless below.

    The camera features makes it feel like Sony digital camera, and I know the output will be (freezing hot)🤔 if there is any word like that,
    4k Oled.. 3ple cam… ahh ha it can compete.

    The top bezel and price MAY disqualify it tho.
