The X1 for mobile engine, powered by Sony’s award-winning BRAVIA TV technologies, brings HDR (High Dynamic Range) remastering technologies ensuring everything you watch, including streamed content, can be enjoyed with more contrast, colour and clarity.

The display, together with originally developed image processing, supports 10-bit tonal gradation and wide color space ITU-R BT.2020, as well as DCI-P3 with Illuminant D65. The sleek display is encased by durable Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on front and back, while IP65/IP68 certified water resistance guards against the elements.

Cinema recording and precise photo shooting
Technologies from Sony’s Alpha interchangeable lens camera are inherited in Xperia 1 as BIONZ X for mobile enabling the world’s first Eye AF (Auto Focus) in a smartphone and deliver continuous burst shooting with up to 10 fps AF/AE tracking (Auto Focus and Auto Exposure) to give you precision focus and optimal exposure.
Capture better low light images with the bright F1.6 lens and large pixel pitch 1.4μm Dual Photo Diode image sensor ensuring even moving subjects are blur-free, while RAW noise reduction delivers beautifully clear images.
