Sony Xperia 1 pre-orders are up, will cost £849 in UK

08 March 2019

When Sony introduced the Xperia 1 at MWC, it didnít tell us any pricing or market details. Finally, the device arrived for pre-order at Clove in the United Kingdom and we know how much the flagship will cost - £849 for the 6/128 GB variant.

Sony bets a lot on its ultra-tall device. It has three 12 MP cameras, 4K OLED screen with 21:9 ratio and CinemaWide display and Dolby Atmos sound. It also has Snapdragon 855 chipset, a 3,300 mAh battery with USB-PD capabilities and Gorilla Glass 6 both on the front and back.

While Clove is giving you the chance to pre-order the Xperia 1 in Black, Purple, Gray, or White, the retailer wonít ship the smartphone until end of May. At least it is SIM Free & Unlocked and comes with the usual 24-month warranty.
