Sony Xperia XZ1 supplied 3D scanner

While Samsung remains silent, companies like HTC, OnePlus, and Motorola have confirmed Android 8.0 Oreo updates. We're hesitant to call a mobile "cute", yet that's definitely an adjective that could be levelled at these Sony smartphones.

An upgrade over this year's Sony Xperia XA1, the Xperia XA1 Plus offers a large 5.5-inch Full HD display which hits 100% of the sRGB color gamut. The pair is protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 technology, ensuring that the screens do not catch scratches or cracks easily. The 5.5-inch display comes with a resolution of 1080p. Size wise the XZ1 is very similar to the Xperia XZ before it, feeling slim in the hand. For a personalized touch, the integrated fingerprint sensor recognizes you intuitively, giving it that unique and secure assurance.

But here's where it gets good. We'll be sure to put the XZ1 Compact's fully to the test in our review, but the X Compact is quite a long-lasting phone, so we're hopeful that its successor will be too.

Positive Southampton team news ahead of Huddersfield clash, Pellegrino to decideā€¦
Huddersfield signed Switzerland defender Florent Hadergjonaj from Ingolstadt on a season-long loan on Thursday. Huddersfield's start to the season is the stuff of dreams, they are doing great.

That won't be a huge problem for most as it will be a small sacrifice to pay to get a smaller phone with high-end specs. They have a lot of features (like Sony's signature two-step camera button) that other phone makers don't seem to care about, or at least, can't be bothered to put on their phones.

That Snapdragon 835 is really going to scream on this little phone because it's pushing a tiny screen; performance often drops as screen resolution increases, and a 720p resolution is less than the 835 usually handles.

"Taken out of the case, the WF-1000X earbuds automatically power on and connect to the most recent device while the equalizer enables users to set the sound to their personal preference", explained Sony in a press release. The XZ1 will come with Oreo out of the box. The XZ1 comes with 64GB of storage, while the XZ Compact has 32GB, but both phones support microSD cards for expanding storage, according to The Verge.

Economy grew 3% in 2nd quarter, fastest pace in 2 years
For the year a whole, I am now predicting real GDP growth of 2.2 percent, with 2.8 percent growth for the current third quarter. The GDP and PCE price deflators were slightly changed, rising 1 percent and 0.9 percent annualized in the second quarter.

While I remain unconvinced this will be anywhere near the killer app Sony Mobile thinks it will be, the process is undoubtedly simple and hassle-free. The device does offer NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi/ac. At the top of the frame, one can spot the 3.5mm audio jack and at the bottom is the USB Type-C connector slightly off centre. The 8-megapixel front camera, meanwhile, has a wide-angle mode. You also get an auto-capture smile mode, as well as the ability to scan 3D objects and faces. Sony claims it can scan a head in around a minute.

To share the scans, you can export them as a.OBJ file, but it comes smoothed-out, monochrome, and upside-down. You have give Sony props, however, for refusing to budge or even refusing to change its strategy.

The XZ1 and XZ1Compact are also packing a new built-in feature for 3D scanning. Stay tuned for more as we hear it!
