Design and Display

The world’s first 4K HDR OLED display

We use our phones for pretty much everything these days, so nobody really wants to be squinting at the screen. The Xperia 1’s 4K HDR OLED display means you’ll see every detail, whether you’re admiring your photo collection, streaming a binge-worthy boxset or simply checking your favourite websites.


A cinema in your pocket

There’s something special about a trip to the cinema, but sometimes it’s easier to watch the latest films on our phones. The Xperia 1 combines crystal clear videos with dynamic audio from Dolby Atmos to recreate the cinema-experience on your phone. You’ll see everything from city-wide explosions to beads of sweat clearly on the large 6.5” screen.



Capture memorable images

Want to capture memorable images without investing in an expensive high-end camera? Of course you do. The Xperia 1 is ideal for everything from sweeping landscape shots to selfies. With a triple lens camera helping you to capture every detail, your artistic creations will be ready to share instantly on social media.


Professional camera technology in a mobile phone

Sony have packed the Xperia 1 with technology from their Alpha range of cameras, so you know it means business. Full manual control, RAW noise reduction, dual photo diode – long story short? Better pictures. So get out there and get creative!


Under The Hood

Plenty of space for your apps, movies and pictures

There’s a massive 128 GB of storage space inside. That’s plenty of room for all your photos, apps, even a collection of films. Not quite enough? Insert a memory card to add up to 512 GB of extra space – no more difficult choices about which photos or apps to delete.

Android 9 adapts to how you use your phone

A phone that adapts to how you use it. With Android 9, your experience will just keep getting better and better. Plugging in your headphones? Your favourite playlist is ready to go. Always running out of battery? It adapts to the apps and services you use. Get more out of your phone.
