Sony Mobile launched the Sony Xperia R1 Plus in India this week alongside a very identical device, the Sony Xperia R1. The smartphone features almost the same features as the Xperia R1 with a bit of addition coming in and that is not far-fetched as the naming convention already depicts such. Look nowhere as I unwrap the beauty behind the Sony Xperia R1 Plus.
