Regular readers of the Sony Mobile blog will be familiar with how fantastic the new Xperia smartphones’ displays are. On the newly landed Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus, the gorgeous 21:9 Wide Full HD+ displays offer an immersive entertainment experience and allow you to see more of the on-screen action.

However, the Xperia 1 offers even more exciting gaming features. Its 4K HDR OLED 21:9 display – a smartphone world first – offers an unrestricted view of your gameplay, and under the hood the new flagship is packed with some incredible features to really optimise your gaming experience. But don’t just take our word for it…

Tim Sweeney, computer game programmer and the founder of Epic Games, said: “Mobile gaming has arrived as a platform on par with consoles. Playing Fortnite on the Xperia 1’s wide 21:9 screen – especially at 60 fps – is an amazing and immersive experience. With their strengths as an entertainment company and hardware manufacturer, Epic is firmly committed to Sony’s entire product line from PlayStation to Xperia.”

Game Enhancer is a new feature on the Xperia 1 allowing users to access all their mobile games in one place. Combined with the improved power efficiency from the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855 processor, Game Enhancer boosts both performance and speed in your Xperia 1 device by allowing you to dial up and release RAM depending on your needs. What’s more, this smartphone powerhouse is able to handle processor-intensive apps and games with ease. Users will be able to race through spectacular locations in Ashalt 9: Legends or ‘loot and shoot’ in Fortnite’s dynamic battle royale PvP maps like never before!

Tired of pesky notifications distracting you from drawing First Blood in Arena of Valor? Game Enhancer will block any unwanted notifications! You can even select certain apps to continue sending alerts while others are blocked.

Game Enhancer also enables gamers to record their gameplay and share with friends on social media. You can also find tips for your chosen title online without halting gameplay! The intelligent Xperia 1 knows which games you are playing and displays relevant tips on the left side of the display.

If that wasn’t enough, the expansive 21:9 display gives you enough space for in-screen video chat so you can battle more collaboratively with your friends to defeat your enemies.

In addition to the impressive quality of the screen and the Game Enhancer feature, the new Xperia 1 is packed with Sony’s High-Resolution Audio, DSEE HX, Dolby Atmos® 3D surround sound and LDAC™ technology, ensuring top sound quality that puts you right in the middle of the action.
