REVIEW

The most amazing thing is the display and size. The dimension of the phone is 6.22 x 2.68 x .32 inch and weight is just 64 gram. Those who love lightweight devices must appreciate this phone. The display size of the phone is 6.1 inch. Happy to know, the display is OLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M colour visibility. The display gets a good number of protections such as corning gorilla glass 6, X-Reality engine, triluminos display, HDR and more.

The internal storage of the phone is 128 GB and the RAM is 6 GB. Another good thing is, it supports external card. The phone increases its demand having a Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 processor. You can easily run any software or game in this device. It comes with Android 9.0 but assuring Android 10 upgrade. 

Sony camera is always great as this phone has. It has a triple rear camera. All of them are 12 MP but have different sensors. (Wide, ultra-wide and telephoto). The video resolution of the rear camera is 2160p. The 8 MP selfie camera is also appreciating. It is compatible with HDR and 1080p video resolution. Don't forget the additional camera features (LED flash, panorama, eye-tracking and HDR).

You will get secure networking GSM, HSPA and LTE. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with 5G. There are 4 different colours available. (Red, blue, grey and black). Already mentioned about the battery. It is a 3150 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery. They should use a more powerful battery. But the good thing is 18W fast charging option.
