Sony announces Xperia 1 V with stacked Exmor T sensor and 4K OLED display – Sony

Sony has unveiled its new flagship Xperia 1 V, featuring a one-of-a-kind stacked Exmor T sensor that promises even better low-light photos. It also has a 4K OLED display in the classic, for the Japanese company, in 21:9 format.

The screen of the Xperia 1 V has a diagonal of 6.5 inches and supports a resolution of 3840 x 1644 pixels and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus 2. In the upper part of the display frame is the front wide-angle camera based on a 12MP 1 /2.9″ sensor with 24mm lens and f:/2.0 aperture. The back of the device has a special finish with a geometric pattern , while the metal frame is also embossed – with grooves “running” along it – for a better and more secure “hold”.IP65 and IP68 certifications guarantee its resistance to dust and water. water.


Inside the Xperia 1 V is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of expandable storage (a microSD memory card slot is provided). Sony has worked to prevent a repeat of the Xperia 1 IV’s overheating issues, so the cooling system is now 60 per cent larger.

The triple camera system on the back includes a wide-angle camera, a telephoto camera and an ultra-wide-angle camera. Specifically, behind the 24mm f:/1.9 wide-angle lens is a 1/1.35″ 52MP sensor with Dual Pixel PDAF (Phase Detection AutoFocus) and OIS that’s 70% larger than its predecessor. 4:3:3 aspect is between the 4:3 aspect ratio used for photos and the 16:9 aspect ratio used in most videos, so although it is not used in its analysis complete for either scenario, the “crop” is minimal in all cases, which is not the case with the competition (on most devices, the “crop” is important, you n therefore not obtain the optimal result in all cases).


The BSI Quad-Bayer sensor has 1.12µm pixels which together with pixel binning results in a size of 2.24µm for 12MP photos. The feature that makes this sensor special is its pixel structure with the photodiode and transistor on different planes, a feature that maximizes light capture and noise reduction. According to Sony, the Xperia 1 V performs twice as well as its predecessor in low-light environments, and it’s worth mentioning that the company now also offers a night mode for extra help when shooting in dim conditions. very low light. .

The telephoto lens is exactly the same as the Xperia 1 IV. Thus, it is based on a 12MP 1/3.5″ sensor with Dual Pixel PDAF and OIS and an 85mm-125mm telephoto system with f:/2.3-f:2.8 aperture for 3.5x-5.2x continuous optical zoom. The third camera is ultra-wide and based on a 12MP 1/2.5″ sensor with a 16mm lens and f:/2.2 aperture. Zeiss optics with Zeiss T* coating are of course used, with the company even stating that the ToF sensor is absent from the Xperia 1V because its AI algorithms are now so advanced that it makes its existence unnecessary.


The device is equipped with stereo speakers that have higher volume and richer bass, while there is no shortage of a 3.5mm jack for those who still prefer wired headphones. Its battery has a capacity of 5,000mAh and supports 30W fast charging (charging to 50% in about 30 minutes), while wireless charging and reverse wireless charging are also supported. The Sony Xperia 1V will be available at the end of June in Black, Platinum Silver and Khaki in terms of colors and at a price of 1399€ in Europe.


Xperia 10V

Along with its flagship, the Japanese company has also announced the Xperia 10 V. Sony claims that it is the lightest mobile with a 5000 mAh battery (the weight is 159 grams). The device has an OLED display with a diagonal of 6.1 inches and FHD+ resolution (2,520 x 1,080 pixels), which the company claims is 1.5 times brighter than the previous generation and is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.

In the camera department, the device has three cameras on the rear, the main one being based on a 48MP 1/2.0″ sensor with 0.8μm pixels, OIS and a 26mm lens with a aperture f:/1.8 The second telephoto lens (54mm, f:/2.2) offers 2x optical zoom and is based on an 8 MP sensor, while the ultra-wide-angle camera (120° FoV) is based on a similar sensor and features a 16mm lens with f:/2.2 aperture The front-facing wide-angle camera features a 26mm f:/2.0 aperture lens and is also based on an 8MP sensor.

The Xperia 10V includes stereo speakers, a 3.5mm jack with Hi-Res support and is dust and water resistant as it covers IP65/IP68 certifications. As we mentioned, it has a 5,000mAh battery with 21W charging support. The device is expected to start selling in Europe mid-June with a price tag of €449.
