Sony announcing new phones at MWC 2019 is no surprise – it usually does the same every year – but the shape and style of its latest Xperia handsets are Sony says the Xperia 1 will be available from "late spring," (Northern Hemisphere) with the Xperia 10, 10 Plus and L3 on sale from February 25.

Sony’s flagship Xperia 1 handset will go on sale in the US for $949 on July 12th, the company announced today. The phone was first announced back in February, and it features a super tall 21:9 4K HDR OLED display, which Sony claims is a first for a mobile device.

That means it’ll be able to show most films without the need for any letterboxing, but it will also give you extra vertical space while you’re browsing Twitter or looking through your inbox. In the UK, the handset is expected to start shipping on May 30th, and retailers are currently listing it for £899.

Sony’s mobile division isn’t in a healthy position. Back in March, Nikkei reported that the company cut up to half of its smartphone workforce in the face of declining handset sales. Its smartphone sales reportedly dropped by 50 percent between 2017 and 2018, and Sony sold just one-sixth of the devices last year as it did five years previously. The company is attempting to start fresh with the Xperia 1, and it’s hoping its massive 4K display will allow it to stand out in a competitive market.

The company's newly announced MRW-W3 hub is billed as the "world's fastest" UHS-II SD (and microSD) card reader, supporting read rates up to 300MB/s. Whether or not it lives up to the boasts, it should easily transfer your camera's giant RAW photos and 4K videos. This isn't a one-trick brick, either -- it's meant to handle many of your laptop's other needs while you're on the road. The hub supports 100W power delivery to handle monitors and other particularly demanding peripherals.

With the Sony Xperia 1 , film students or graduates of film colleges might be able to shoot their first short films at a reasonable price. A sales launch is planned for the summer, typical for Sony ' s premium smartphone flagships . The Xperia 1 will be available in 4 colors when it goes on sale in

Sony ’ s latest flagship is designed specifically for you to watch video on – but will the 21:9 aspect ratio work in day-to-day use? The Xperia 1 marks the first time the company has introduced a triple camera to one of its smartphones. It uses a 12MP wide sensor, 12MP telephoto and a 12MP super

While Sony gears up to launch this year’s flagship, details of its successor — the Xperia 2 — are already starting to emerge. Although it currently appears to be an incremental update, the new phone will apparently shrink its predecessor’s 6.5-inch display down to 6.1 inches while maintaining its 21:9 aspect ratio, and Sony will also change the location of the rear triple-camera setup.
