Official Sony Xperia 1 pre-orders will come with free wireless noise-canceling headphones
Sony has a bad habit of releasing perfectly respectable smartphones at wildly exaggerated price points, and unfortunately, the high-end Xperia 1 is no exception, fetching a whopping $950 without actually rivaling the likes of the Galaxy S10+ or even the cheaper OnePlus 7 Pro in terms of design trendiness, camera performance, or overall specifications.

But although the extra-tall 6.5-incher has been listed as up for pre-order on Amazon since March, its official US sales are only scheduled to kick off in a couple of weeks. Namely, on July 12 across major retailers like Best Buy, Amazon, B&H Photo Video, Focus Camera, and Beach Camera, all of which will apparently offer a super-sweet freebie during the handset's sanctioned pre-order period.

This will run from Friday, June 28 to July 12, seeing early adopters score complimentary WH1000XM3 headphones, normally worth no less than $350 on their own. Those noise-canceling bad boys are some of the best-reviewed audio accessories in their class, and although they've been discounted a number of times in the recent past, they're still pretty valuable, substantially sweetening the Xperia 1 deal. 

Available in black and purple color options, the phone obviously packs a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 855 processor, along with 6GB RAM and 128 gigs of internal storage space. That's certainly not a bad high-end configuration, but we'd be remiss not to mention a OnePlus 7 Pro variant featuring 8 gigs of memory and 256GB digital hoarding room costs $699, while the $999 Galaxy S10+ (which can often be purchased at a lower price) comes with 8GB RAM of its own.

Still, as long as you buy the Sony Xperia 1 early, you're looking at a pretty solid deal, having to pay 950 bucks for an objectively great mobile device and some truly amazing wireless noise-canceling headphones.

It has a 4k, DCI-P3 100%, Rec 2020, HDR BT 2020 display. It's the only new 4k display smartphone. Plus the Xperia 1 cameras have 5 axis gyro ois stabilization, which is a first for smartphone cameras. PhoneArena always has to make it look like Sony brings nothing new to the table.

You people keep crying over battery capacity made me doubt, while most test and experiments on the web or YouTube reveal at least very good battery life, i watched a random guy on YouTube playing PUBG at highest graphics for two hours on this phone, it drained only 25% which means 8 hours of total gaming time, plus in case of emergencies this phone ships with an 18w charger and Sony claims 50% charges in 30min, have a break for couple of minutes recharge your phone in case you ran out of charge.

Cheaper than iphone X .... PA editors should take advantage of this offer. Better than waiting until 2030 to see some stuff on iphone.

That's how you do it. If you remove the headphone jack, include wireless headphones or earbuds.

That's how you do it, if you are Sony and want actually someone to buy your phone.
