Sony announces the mid-range Xperia R1 and Xperia R1 Plus

Sony Xperia R1 and R1 Plus have been launched globally in India first and these smartphones will be available across all Sony Center and major mobile stores across India starting November 10.

The Sony Xperia R1 and R1 Plus features 5.2-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) TFT LCd displays.

The Xperia XZ1 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage which is also expandable.

Sony Xperia R1 Plus features a 13MP Exmor Sony sensor at the back with auto-focus and LED Flash. The Xperia R1 comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM whereas the Xperia R1 Plus has 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage and both the internal storage can be extended upto 128GB via microSD card. Both the smartphones are backed by a 2620mAh battery.

The Sony Xperia R1 and R1 Plus smartphones from Sony are not going to sell like hotcakes. Rest of the features are identical in both the devices. The Sony Experia R1 is also one of the cheapest smartphones to use USB Type C port but unlike other expensive offerings it comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Apart from all these, Sony is touting that the new Xperia R1 Plus and R1 also come loaded with Uplink Data Compression (UDC) that supports fast upload and browsing. The display has a 2.5D curved glass on top. The devices run on Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and the company promised to release the Android 8.0 Oreo update. We are wondering as to why Sony had to name them differently when in fact it could have launched a single smartphone with different storage and RAM variants like Xiaomi does. It measures 146.00 x 73.20 x 8.89 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 154.00 grams. This is a dual SIM smartphone, and there's a dedicated slot for microSD card.

In the camera department, the Xperia R1 and R1 Plus include a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP wide-angle front camera for selfies and video calls.
