Sony Launches Two Budget Xperia R1 Smartphones In India

Sony Xperia R1 & Xperia R1 Plus with 5.2″ Display & Snapdragon 430 SoC Launched in India

There are more similarities than differences between the R1 and R1 Plus, so let's first talk about what sets the two phones apart. Sony has added an Exmor sensor in the rear camera module along with hybrid autofocus for better images.

Both phones will be available across the country starting from November 10th.

The Sony Xperia R1 Plus is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. And if you're anxious about software support, Sony is expected to provide Xperia XZ users with an Android 8.0 Oreo update at some point. The storage can be further expanded up to 128GB via micro SD card. Both the Sony Xperia R1 & Xperia R1 Plus comes with the similar design. There's an 8MP front camera with 76-degree wide angle. Unfortunately, unlike some of Sony's more expensive devices, there aren't any front-facing speakers to be seen here. They will be powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. The phones will be powered by a 2620 mAh non-removable battery. Other connectivity features include 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer. Interested customers, who pre-book a Xperia R1 or Xperia R1 Plus smartphone on Amazon India, they will get a special offer. Sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient light sensor. The display has a 2.5D curved glass on top. Both of them run on Android Nougat. On the front is an 8-megapixel selfie-snapper.

The R1 Plus and R1 are dual SIM (4G) smartphones. It measures 146.00 x 73.20 x 8.89 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 154.00 grams.

The Xperia R1 Plus and R1 come loaded with Uplink Data Compression (UDC) to improve data transmission which helps to download web pages up to 50 percent faster, the company claims.
