Sony's Flagship Xperia 1 21:9 Smartphone Gets a Launch Date: July 12th for $950


Sony has finally given its flagship Xperia 1 smartphone an official launch date and price. The handset, which features a large 21:9 OLED display that supports wide color gamuts, will arrive on July 12th for $949.99.

This looks like a really solid device with a really impressive screen. There are just two things that make this an unfortunate device:

  • the price
  • the OS

Maybe one day the “open” crowd will make something this nice … but I won’t hold my breath.
