About the Xperia XZ1
Incorporating the latest Motion Eye™ camera for capturing detail beyond human eye capability, new ground-breaking technology for mobile with 3D scanning, leading BRAVIA TV technologies for beautiful on-screen images including HDR display, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile Platform with X16 LTE, and a premium listening experience with Hi-Res Audio, the Xperia XZ1 is powered by Sony’s latest innovations all wrapped in a timeless design.
For the first time ever in a smartphone, Sony’s unique, innovative in-house algorithm offers the ability to generate high quality 3D scans of objects in just one minute using four scan modes; head scan, face scan, food scan and freeform scan. The 3D renders can be shared via messenger apps as stickers or online 3D communities such as Sketchfab. They can also be brought to life as fun avatars using the camera’s AR effects option, 3rd party apps or set as a one-of-a-kind live wallpaper. Those interested in creating memorable keepsakes may also easily send their scans directly to 3D printing companies like Shapeways.
The Xperia XZ1 Motion Eye™ camera and memory-stacked Exmor™ RS image sensor also offer a new Predictive Capture that stays one step ahead and automatically starts buffering images when it detects action or even a smile, before you press the shutter button. It also offers a new Autofocus burst that intelligently follows your subject, adjusting the focus to make sure your action shots stay sharp.
With two front-facing stereo speakers, the Xperia XZ1 offers a 50% improvement in sound pressure in comparison to previous models in the Sony Mobile flagship family, to deliver a more immersive audio experience when watching movies and TV shows without headphones.
The Xperia XZ1 is coming to Singapore in four new colours, each inspired by natural light, including Moonlit Blue, Venus Pink, Warm Silver and Classic Black at a suggested retail price of S$898. Colour availability varies across retailers. The Xperia XZ1 will be available at Sony Store, Sony Centre, M1, Singtel, StarHub and authorised retail partners on 7 October, and comes with a complimentary Krusell Bovik cover (worth S$25) and 32GB MicroSD card (worth S$25), while stocks last.
