With so much fierce competition in the phone world, Sony needed to step up and do something special this MWC. Instead, it launched the Xperia 1, which has a vibrant screen, but little else to get excited about.
It's not that it's a bad phone, it's just that it's entirely forgettable. That's a serious problem when Sony's rivals are experimenting with folding phones and 5G.
The Xperia 1 has a 6.5-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, three rear cameras and 6GB of RAM. Pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed.
The triple camera array features a standard zoom lens, a telephoto zoom and a super wide-angle mode. It's a setup we've seen already on phones such as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus.
