The Sony Xperia 5 IV charges quickly if you have your own cable

Sony’s new phone offers wireless charging and a bigger battery than its predecessor, but all you’ll find in the box is the phone.

The last member of Sony’s 2022 mobile product range has been introduced, and while other manufacturers are constantly trying to outbid each other in terms of size and extravagant appearance, the Japanese continue to see the potential in compact design, clean shapes and convincing performance, especially when it comes to the camera.

Compared to its predecessor, the Xperia 5 III, the new model is 1-1 mm shorter and slimmer, while its weight has increased by 4 grams. The latter is due, among other things, to the 5,000 mAh battery with a 10% higher capacity, which according to the manufacturer’s information can be charged to 50% in half an hour with a 30W PD charger, and the battery maintains this performance and capacity for three years .

The device (for the first time in Series 5) also supports wireless charging, but there is no adapter or USB cable in the box.

All three lenses come with autofocus, and the wide and telephoto also have optical image stabilization. Eye-tracking autofocus has been upgraded from the cameras, and we also get 120 fps with each lens. The selfie camera its role is played by a 12 MP 1/2.9″ sensor with a fixed focus 24mm f/2.0 lens.

The 6.1″ OLED display with a resolution of 1080×2520 works with a 120 Hz refresh rate and is 50% brighter than before. Underneath is the Sapdragon 8 Gen 1, along with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. .Sony continues to stick with microSD storage and they’re also the last to keep the jack connector on their premium phones.The built-in stereo speakers come with Dolby Atmos and 360 Reality Audio support.
