Sony announced its flagship phone, the XZ1. This is the world’s first phone to feature 3D capture. With the 3D creator capabilities, XZ1 scans objects and people in 3D and can be shared across different media and platforms. High-quality 3D scans of objects can be rendered in just a minute using four scan modes; head scan, face scan, food scan and freeform scan. Each mode has its own custom guides for ease of use. Scanned objects can then be shared on messenger apps using 3D stickers or uploaded to 3D communities such as Sketchfab. Users can also bring scans to life by using them as avatars on the camera’s AR effects options, third-party apps or as live wallpapers. Scans can even be printed on a 3D printer.
The camera of the phone feature Autofocus Burst that lets you capture moving objects sharply. The rear camera is 19-megapixel with Motion Eye feature, HDR photo capabilities, and predictive Hybrid Autofocus. It also supports 4K video recording. The front camera is 13-megapixel with steady shot.
The phone looks premium as it sports a metal body design. Xperia XZ1 is water resistant, dust-proof and reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on the display. The phone is powered by Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expanded up to 256GB). The battery is rated at 2700mAh and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. Another highlight of the phone is that it runs on Android O. The price of XZ1 is Rs. 44,990.
