This cellphone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 MSM8998 chip, holding a high speed Octa-Core processing unit clocking at 2.45 gigahertz and a big 4 GB of RAM. The Sony Xperia XZ1 has a great 64 GB internal storage memory and an external SD slot, enough to store tons of apps, games, pictures and videos without even thinking about filling the cellphone.

The Sony Xperia XZ1 is quite a compact cellphone, considering it features a 5.2" screen and it's only 5.83 inches long. The Sony Xperia XZ1 has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.29". This phone is available in a wide range of colors, black, blue, pink and silver. About its construction quality, this phone is majorly built with Aluminum . This cellphone is much lighter than what one would think about a phone this size.

This phone includes a beautiful 5.2-inches screen with a 1080 x 1920 (Full HD) resolution, providing this phone with a perfect graphical experience.

This cellphone features two cameras, a 19 MP back-facing camera and a 13 mega-pixels front camera. Its back-facing camera lens has a maximum F2 aperture so it can shoot detailed pictures even in poor lighting environments.
