It is likely Sony will support the Xperia 1 with software updates for a little longer than the Xperia XZ3, but we wouldn't expect either to stop getting updates for a couple of years. Sony's also worked with a bunch of big game developers such as Epic Games, Gameloft and Tencent to optimise mobile titles like Fortnite, Asphalt 9, and Arena Valor to run on the Xperia 1 at its native 21:9 ratio.
In terms of imaging, the Xperia 10 Plus has a 12-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel secondary camera. Both these cameras are capable of capturing 21:9 images and video shots and also include Bokeh effects, video streaming, slow-mo recording at 120fps and Hybrid autofocus and more.
Movies made with a 21:9 ratio include Ghostbusters, The Matrix, Pulp Fiction and Alien.
Sony's new handset wields a spacious 6.5-inch OLED display with a 4K resolution and 21:9 "CinemaWide" aspect ratio, and high dynamic range (HDR) support. In fact, the Xperia 1's battery is going to be powering a 4K display, so it's possible that life will be worse. The Xperia 1 is also touted to be the world's first 4K OLED panel smartphone. But the display is only half the story.

Sony has partnered with Dolby for improved audio experience in this device.
The last flagship phone Sony unveiled at Mobile World Congress felt a bit dated when it came to design, featuring large bezels and a single-lens camera. This ensures that the music you listen to and the videos you watch have crystal clear sound. Both the phones come with dual rear cameras and sport a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The cheaper model has 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors, while the 10 Plus comes with 12-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras, as well as 2X optical zoom. Sony enthusiasts will also be delighted to find that the fingerprint sensor has been re-integrated into the side frame of the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus. The battery sits at 3,330 mAh, which isn't too bad but still a bit behind some of the competition.
The Xperia XZ3 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset - one of the most powerful chipsets we saw inside phones previous year - while the Xperia 1 is sporting the even more recent and superior Snapdragon 855.
The Sony Xperia 1 is powered by octa-core processor and it comes with 6GB of RAM.
Both Xperia 10 and 10 Plus will run Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and would be available in select markets from 25 February. It ships with 128GB of onboard storage, though an additional 512GB of storage can be added via the external microSD slot.
Sony has just restarted the Xperia line with the Xperia 1 but when it reaches the Xperia 9, it might be at a loss what to call the next flagship. And the new display will definitely help with multitasking. Both the smartphones will be going on sale in the U.S. starting next month.
