After delighting smartphone users in Pakistan with some great additions in the smartphones industry from Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Oppo, and even Redmi, it was finally time for Sony mobile to do one. Released in the September of 2017 at the IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) Show 2018, the Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 compact became the flagship models of the Xperia series.

Powered by some excellent features including Sony Bravia TV tech, PlayStation integration, a magical camera, and a new processor the Sony XZ1 smartphone is a great comparable with the Samsung A8, and Apple iPhone 7. Let’s take a quick look over the Sony Xperia XZ1 to compare its price in Pakistan.

Sony Xperia XZ1 Price in Pakistan

The Sony Xperia XZ1 price on release in September 2017 was set at $700 for the 5.2 inch variant. It’s strange that Sony does not announce the prices of its flagship devices until they are actually in store.

Now although there is an official Sony website and care centers in Pakistan, there may be a slight scarcity in Sony Xperia XZ1’s availability. Probably because Sony smartphones are not known for their resale prices, and the fact that most tech in their phones is available for cheaper in Red-Mi, Huawei, and Samsung’s lower end phones.

The current Sony Xperia XZ1 price in Pakistan is between Rs.68,999 and Rs.75,999, depending where you are buying from. There are some great deals for the Xperia XZ1 available online from:

  • Home Shopping PK
  • ShopHive
  • Symbios PK

Sony Xperia XZ1 Features

Sony has completely revamped its Xperia flagship model adding some really powerful features to the phone. I haven’t included Fingerprint Sensor tech in my feature review since the US version does not come with it. If you do find the European or Asia variant it will have Fingerprint Sensor security integrated in the back.


The most obvious of Sony Xperia XZ1 feature changes is the rounded design of the Sony Xperia XZ1 body. While the body is the conventional Xperia design, the rectangular body, it now has the infinite loop design. You will notice the sides, top, and bottom now have a premium rounded finish. The XZ1 is also water and dust resistant.


The Xperia XZ1 brings an IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and powered by Sony’s exclusive TRILUMINOS technology. Inclusive of three color modes namely Professional, Standard & Super Vivid, the Sony Xperia XZ1 offers a beautiful display even in bright daylight.

The display is also HDR10 certified optimizing the display for Netflix, HULU and other HD playback streaming services. The screen is also enhanced to give you a better gaming experience when you integrate it with your PlayStation account.

The Legendary Sony Camera

The 19 MPx Sony camera is back with more this time. Sony promises that you will catch life’s true beauty with its new Super Slow motion and Predictive Capture features. The Xperia XZ1 gives you the legendary Sony Exmor RS light sensor, Sony G Lens and faster image processing with BIONZ for mobile.

Record Video and capture images at 960 frames per second, never miss a smile, take more colorful selfies, and record video in 4K Ultra with this brilliant new camera from Sony.

A Brilliant New Processor

One of the top Sony Xperia XZ1 features offers the massive Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. Powered by the Kryo 280 OctaCore CPU and Adreno 540 GPU, the multitasking chip is exactly what you will need. Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 is an enhanced chip for better power consumption, better camera performance, gaming, faster WIFI connectivity, App multitasking, and an immersing video watching experience.

Out of the Box Android 8 Oreo

The Sony Xperia XZ1 becomes the first phone to be powered by the Android 8 Oreo OS out of the box. Experience a faster and smoother experience with more battery life bringing together all the power of Android 8 Oreo OS straight out of the box.

3D Creator

An amazing Sony Xperia XZ1 feature I saw in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S9 models is the facial design creator. The Sony Xperia XZ1 offers facial mapping to create 3D models of human faces and objects. You can use these to add as your contact photos, create animated characters, stickers and more.

Improved Audio and music Playback

The Xperia XZ1 offers stunning Sound with DSEE-HX or Digital Sound Enhancement System, an innovation from Sony. Coupled with digital noise cancelling its just you and your music, the phone reduces 98% of noise around you.

The external speakers also gifted stereo speakers for excellent surround sound. Sony has also enhanced the Bluetooth sound streaming experience with LDAC, which delivers Hi-Res audio to your headphones or from a wireless device.
