Sony Xperia XZ1, XZ1 Compact and XA1 Plus officially announced, same design, updated tech specs from about RM1622
Sony officially announced 3 smartphones at IFA 2017 with the Sony Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact priced at $699 (~RM2985) and $599(~RM2558). While the design is the same rounded sides as before the tech specs have been updated with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, 4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage, 19MP MotionEye camera for 960fps slomo video, a 2700 mAh battery and Android 8.0. Also on display was the Mediatek Helio P20 powered Xperia XA1 Plus with a 5.5-inch FHD display and 23MP rear camera for $379.99 (~RM1622).
The Xperia XZ1 surprisingly goes for a 4.6-inch 720p display while also adding on the inches in the thicker plastic body instead of a metal one like the XZ1 which has a 5.2-inch FHD display. Both are still IP68 water resistance rated though. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet about any of the Xperia smartphones above but they should arrive in Malaysia by year-end.
