Sony brings mid-range Xperia R1 and R1 Plus to India

In a press event, Sony unveiled two devices from their Xperia R series. While most Xperia devices are considered as overpriced, R lineup is aiming at the value-based smartphone markets like India. The design of the new devices looks like any generic device from Sony but with USB type-C port.

 

 

Let’s take a look at the specification of Xperia R1 –

  • 5.2-inch 720p Display.
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor.
  • 2 GB RAM.
  • 16 GB Internal Memory.
  • 2620 mAh Battery.
  • 13 MP Rear Camera.
  • 8 MP Front-facing Camera.
  • Android Nougat but will be able to upgrade to Oreo soon.

Let’s take a look at the specification of Xperia R1 Plus –

  • 5.2-inch 720p Display.
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor.
  • 3 GB RAM.
  • 32 GB Internal Memory.
  • 2620 mAh Battery.
  • 13 MP Rear Camera.
  • 8 MP Front-facing Camera.
  • Android Nougat but will be able to upgrade to Oreo soon.

 

Sony will be selling both the devices via Amazon and Flipkart starting on November 10. There won’t be much color option for buyers. Only Black or Silver. While the base price of Xperia R1 is INR 13990, Xperia R1 Plus will cost INR 2000 more. At INR 15,990, it is harder to consider Xperia R1 Plus as an option. Still, you might go for it as we all know Sony builds some hardy handset in the market and it can be an essential reason to buy those.
