It has a stunning 4K HDR OLED screen and will cost $949

Sony’s newest flagship, the Xperia 1, is coming to the U.S. beginning July 12. The phone was announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this year.

The device features a 6.57-inch 4K HDR OLED display, which Sony claims is a first on a smartphone. That, along with the super tall 21:9 aspect ratio, and it is meant to deliver a truly immersive media experience.

The Xperia 1 is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM, and will come with a triple-camera system consisting of a main 12MP sensor, a 12MP telephoto sensor and a 12MP ultra-wide sensor. That seems to be the benchmark for flagship cameras. The front camera, meanwhile, is a 8MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture.

Most of the Xperia 1 looks promising, but there is some worry about how the device’s 3,300mAh battery will fare with the robust 4K display, which could be a big drain.

The Sony Xperia 1 will retail for $949 and be available through multiple retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Focus Camera. It’ll go on sale beginning July 12.

No carriers are set to offer the Xperia 1 but it will support GSM networks and is certified to work on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
