The company sony it has a new member and is destined to compete at the high end. Today, the Japanese company announced the Xperia 1Va premium device that has all the features of the flagships, but includes a completely new CMOS image sensor with two-layer technology.
The design of the Sony Xperia 1 V has not undergone radical changes. The phone sports the trademark 21:9 aspect ratio that features bezels, front-facing stereo speakers, and the side-mounted capacitive fingerprint reader.
Good options in the Sony Xperia 1 V
The screen of this Sony terminal is 6.5-inch OLED and has 4K resolution. It is capable of working with HDR content in real time and its refresh rate reaches 120Hz. As for the main hardware, it must be said that it meets what is necessary to compete with any other model. It has a processor Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from Qualcomm, which is combined with 12GB RAM and 256 gigabytes of internal storage (microSD card compatibility remains).
The terminal arrives with the operating system with android 13 and features Sony’s professional-level creation-focused apps such as Photography Pro; Videography Pro; Cinema Pro; and MusicPro.
A camera that is differential
Sony has kept the variable periscope zoom, which offers a continuous one between 85 and 125 millimeters, sitting on a 12MP Exmor RS sensor (not missing the 16mm ultrawide access). But the real innovation comes in the main 52MP sensor -with 48 being effective- which has the aforementioned newly developed Exmor T sensor. This is 1.7 times larger than found in the previous generation, and Sony also says it can perform 2x better in low light than its predecessor.
The pixel structure of this is a bit different from conventional image sensors in mobile devices. The company you have split the photodiode and transistor and put them on separate layers. By doing so, the company was able to fine-tune the size of both, and the result is more captured light and minimized noise levels.
Sony has also upped its AI computational photography game, and better results can now be expected in modes like Night Portrait, Daylight Portrait, and Night View. Of course, all the technology from Sony’s Alpha camera department is also on board: high-performance real-time AF, real-time Eye-AF, burst shooting, and so on.
Meets on battery
Inside this equipment is a battery 5,000mAh, which should allow for 20 hours of video playback on the 4K display without a hitch. The Sony Xperia 1 V supports wireless charging and, when it comes to fast, it reaches 30W. Therefore, reaching 50% of the battery is achieved in 30 minutes.
