Sony, has launched the highly anticipated Xperia 1 V smartphone, revolutionising the world of mobile photography and videography. Designed specifically for creators, this flagship device is equipped with a cutting-edge image sensor and Alpha series technology, such as the Sony A7 IV, delivering impressive portraits with accurate colour reproduction whether shoot during the day or night.
The Xperia 1 V is the world’s first flagship smartphone featuring a newly developed stacked CMOS image sensor with a 2-layer Transistor Pixel. This sensor, combined with Sony’s renowned expertise, captures rich colours and textures even in low-light conditions, ensuring stunning results in both photography and videography. The Xperia 1 V’s low-light performance is approximately double its predecessor’s, thanks to high-speed multi-frame overlay processing technology. Users can now capture noise-resistant photos with exceptional clarity with a wider dynamic range equivalent to a full-frame camera.
One of the standout features of the Xperia 1 V is its 24mm lens, backed by a 2-layer Transistor Pixel stacked CMOS image sensor called “Exmor T for mobile.” This sensor is approximately 1.7 times larger than previous models, enabling the smartphone to deliver bright and distortion-free portraits with its 85-125mm (F2.3-F2.8) optical zoom lens.
Sony has also incorporated its renowned S-Cinetone technology, known among cinematographers, into the Xperia 1 V. This adjustment allows for the beautiful expression of human skin texture and cinematic image recording without requiring extensive colour grading. The new sensor offers approximately three times the saturation signal level of conventional sensors, resulting in breathtaking images with soft and natural colours, even in dark scenes.
The new Sony camera phone goes beyond its impressive camera capabilities by providing many functions tailored for creators. It includes colour presets such as Creative Look, found in Alpha series cameras and high-performance real-time AF (autofocus). With features like Real-time Eye AF and Real-time tracking, the smartphone ensures precise focus on subjects’ eyes and allows for high-speed continuous shooting of up to 30 frames per second with AF/AE tracking.
Immersive viewing experiences are guaranteed with the Xperia 1 V’s 6.5-inch 4K OLED display, boasting a refresh rate of 120Hz for reduced blur. The smartphone also features a powerful, low-noise speaker amplifier, enhancing audio depth and clarity without needing external speakers.
The Xperia 1 V is slated for release in late June, with pre-orders starting on May 10, 2023. For a limited time, customers who pre-order the Xperia 1 V from June 1, 2023, will receive Sony’s latest WF-1000XM4 true wireless noise-cancelling earbuds with their purchase.
