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.

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.
