The retailer also has a special offer for Xperia XZ1 buyers. If they pre-order the phone on or before September 21, they will also get a free pair of Sony h.ear on 2 headphones, which normally costs £250. The phone is available to order in Blue, Black and Silver colors, while the Xperia XZ1 Compact comes in Blue, Black and Pink colors. Both the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact are the first smartphones that are confirmed to run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

The Xperia XZ1 has a 5.2-inch full screen display, and the current fastest mobile processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip. The all-metal body has 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of onboard storage, a 13 MP front-facing camera, a 2,700 mAh battery, and a fingerprint sensor (which won’t be included with the version shipping to the US). The biggest feature for this phone is its 19 MP rear camera, which will have Sony’s Magic Eye technology. It will include features such as predictive focus and Motion Eye 3D, which will let users create a 3D mapped image of a person or any other object.
