The Xperia 1 V would rewrite the rules of evening photography

Sony’s cinema camera mobile comes with double-layer pixel technology, advanced heat dissipation, and an excellent adhesive back.

Knowing Sony’s excellent cameras, mobile phones for professional videographers and market-leading camera sensors, it is no wonder that the latest Xperia superphone also focuses on recording still and moving images, but the Xperia 1 V has also improved in many respects compared to its predecessor, which is less noisy, but all the more useful. .


For example, the narrow and elongated shape remained at 165 x 71 x 8.3 millimeters and 187 grams, accompanied by two Gorilla Glass Victus 2 glasses, but the flat back and sides were given a design that dramatically increases grip security, and frankly: too many phones today fails to meet this basic expectation.


However, no one wants to crush the 6.5″ 120 Hz, 3840 x 1644 pixel HDR OLED panel during an accidental accident. The 21:9 ultra-widescreen aspect ratio and the X1 engine for excellent display remained, and the 12 megapixel selfie camera still without disturbing the display, as well as IP65/68 protection against dust and water.


The other important change is twofold: the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 still runs cooler than its predecessor, and the Xperia 1 V offers a 60% larger heat sink inside, where a 5000 mAh battery has been placed, with the usual 30-watt charging cap on the Type-C port. , reaching 50% in half an hour, with a suitable charger purchased separately.


There is also wireless charging and a stereo speaker, and Sony is nostalgic the way we like it: despite the 12/256 GB launch, the microSD slot is given on the hybrid nanoSIM tray (there is also an eSIM), and even the jack output got a place.


Of course, the main point is at the back with the Sony Exmor T camera sensor, debuting for the first time among mobile phones, 1/1.35″ in size, using double-layer transistor pixel technology. It is a 52-megapixel chip with 48 million effective pixels, resulting in 12-megapixel shots with 4:1 binning The Xperia 1 V promises a dramatic improvement in low-light conditions and with S-Cinetone cinema visuals, there will be no errors in video recording, if the display is cinematic in nature, on which post-production can also be carried out.

The 12-megapixel zoom camera is no slouch either: f/2.3 and f/2.8 aperture, and can switch between 85 and 125 mm focal length for 3.5x and 5.2x optical zoom . Finally, the ultra-wide camera is also 12 megapixels with a focal length of 16 mm and a viewing angle of 123 degrees, and the optics on the back have received the Zeiss mark.


There is also Photography Pro mode with an interface and options reminiscent of interchangeable lens cameras. For the time being, Sony’s representative cannot tell you Hungarian prices, but they can tell you about Euro prices: 1,400 such units are expected to be sold at the end of June. Pre-orders will start on June 5, complete with WH-1000XM5 noise-cancelling headphones, and we expect to receive a domestic price then, probably over half a million forints.
