Xperia 1 will be Sony’s first 3 rear camera phone (all 3 cameras have 12MP resolution), which will be sold next month. Recently, the company has released a short promotional video of the camera / video capture capabilities of this camera cluster.
Specifically, the phone is integrated with the main camera using 26mm focal length lens and aperture of f / 1.6. In addition, users can capture larger images with super wide or 16mm zoom lens with 52mm telephoto lens. Sony brought the phone to “virtual living mecca” Hudson Yards (USA) and showed off the photography capabilities of Xperia 1. Escherian staircase with a strange structure is a great place to highlight the difference between three lenses.
The ultra wide-angle 16mm lens only has an aperture of f / 1.6, while SonyMobile.com says the lens has an aperture of f / 2.4. The video also shows that the 26mm lens has an aperture of f / 2.4 and the site claims this lens has an aperture of f / 1.6. Therefore, the camera aperture varies flexibly from f / 1.6 (main camera) to f / 2.4 (super wide).

Other specifications of the Xperia 1 include: a 6.5-inch OLED display; Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor chip, 6GB RAM; 64GB / 128GB internal memory; Adreno 640 graphics processing chip; battery 3330 mAh.
Currently, the pre-order price for Xperia 1 in the US is up to 999.99 USD (23.2 million VND) on Amazon for the unlocked version and American standard warranty. This price is evaluated by experts as quite expensive compared to other “competitors”.
