Last month, Sony announced that its Xperia 1 flagship Android phone will be released on July 12 in the US. But today it shared that preorders start on Friday, June 28, and that if you pony $ 949.99 for the new phone pony, you get a pretty good preorder bonus: its 1000X M3 wireless noise canceling headset (worth $ 350).
There are cheaper ways to get these headphones if you don't want the phone. We've seen them sell for just $ 289 in previous sales. But if you were already planning to buy Sony & # 39; s new phone, this should give you even more confidence in your decision to do so.
The Xperia 1 has a 4: 3 OLED screen with an aspect ratio of 21: 9, giving it a long, skinny look. The 6.5-inch screen sounds awkward on paper, although this aspect ratio should make it easier to control and store than larger phablet phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. As noted in my review of the cheaper Sony Xperia 10 sharing this design, 21: 9 is great for browsing on Twitter or reading an article, but less for watching YouTube videos and playing certain games. Some apps do not yet support the aspect ratio and it results in content that is not displayed correctly. The aspect ratio is a natural adjustment for movie trailers and videos that you record with the camera with the rear triple camera, should be displayed fine.
This phone works on AT & T, T-Mobile and Verizon and you can take advantage of this order for bestselling via Best Buy, Amazon, B & H Photo, Focus Camera, Beach Camera and other points of sale. This deal ends on July 12, the day of the release of the Xperia 1.
