New Sony Xperia 1 has built-in Alexa

Amazon has begun selling a version of the Sony Xperia 1 that lets owners use hands-free Alexa commands.

The phone will include a pre-installed set of Amazon apps, which include Amazon Shopping, Amazon Music, Audible, and Alexa.

Traditionally, most smartphones that use Alexa as their primary voice assistant have been entry-level models.

However, the Xperia 1 is an impressive premium smartphone and includes a 4K OLED display, a triple-lens camera system, 6GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 855 processor.

According to the product page, this version of the Xperia 1 does ship to South Africa, and will be priced at $950.
