These come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa-Core SoC coupled with 2GB or 3GB of RAM, depending upon which model you buy. Both the smartphone feature Sony's loop surface design with a 2.5D curved glass. The best part is Sony has gone with a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer purposes, and yes, they both have a 3.5mm headphone jack as well. The Sony Xperia R1 has a 13MP camera on the rear with LED flash and it is made out of Sony Exmor sensor. There is also an 8 megapixels front camera with the same Predictive Hybrid Autofocus.
