You can now pre-order the Sony Xperia 1 in the UK
Even though the Sony Xperia 10 and 10 Plus are up for pre-order, the same couldn’t be said of the flagship Xperia 1. That changes today, at least in the U.K. — residents can now pre-order the Xperia 1 through Clove Technology for 849 pounds (~$1,104).
The Xperia 1 is available in black, purple, gray, and white. U.K. residents will have to wait a bit to play around with the phone — pre-orders will start shipping at the end of May. That said, you can import the Xperia 1 through Clove, so those in other countries aren’t left in the cold.
Announced during MWC 2019, the Xperia 1 features a 6.5-inch OLED display with 4K (3,840 x 1,644) resolution and an incredibly tall 21:9 aspect ratio. The display also supports HDR, which should make movie-watching a treat when also taking the stereo speakers into account.
Elsewhere, the Xperia 1 sports three rear 12-megapixel cameras with varying focal lengths — one standard lens, a second telephoto lens, and a third super wide-angle lens. The phone also features a front-facing 8MP sensor, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, a 3,330mAh battery, and Android 9 Pie out of the box.
If the Xperia 1 is too rich for your blood, the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus are stylistically similar and cost almost half as much. You can find out more about the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus’ pricing here.
