Sony Xperia 1 VI

Sony has unveiled its latest premium smartphone, the Xperia 1 VI, marking a significant leap in mobile photography technology. Priced at approximately £1299 and available for pre-order from 15th May, this smartphone integrates cutting-edge features to cater to both photography enthusiasts and professional users.

The Xperia 1 VI is equipped with a telephoto optical zoom lens offering a versatile zoom range of up to 7.1x, enabling long-distance shots from 85mm to 170mm focal lengths without degrading image quality. This capability not only enhances landscape and distant object photography but also excels in capturing intricate details in tele-macro photography, such as floral interiors and other close-ups with a minimal focus distance of just 4cm.

Central to the Xperia 1 VI’s photography prowess is its 24mm wide-angle lens equipped with the “Exmor T for mobile” sensor. This sensor enhances low-light performance significantly, enabling photographers to capture vibrant and detailed images even in challenging lighting conditions. The AI-powered autofocus (AF) system, which includes tracking and human pose estimation, ensures sharp and dynamic photographs by effectively tracking subjects in motion, a feature adopted from Sony’s high-end Alpha series cameras.

For video enthusiasts, the Xperia 1 VI introduces an array of professional features. The new Pro video mode allows users to control detailed settings, ensuring cinematic quality in video capture. The AI remastering technology of its BRAVIA-powered display enhances image contrast, color, and clarity, making content viewing on the smartphone a high-quality visual experience.

Beyond its imaging capabilities, the Xperia 1 VI is designed to be a comprehensive entertainment device. It boasts an enhanced audio system with a high-performance speaker that reduces distortion at high volumes and optimizes low-frequency output for an immersive audio experience. Supported by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform, the smartphone promises exceptional performance across gaming, audio, and other applications.

The Xperia 1 VI doesn’t just stop at hardware advancements. It’s packaged in an environmentally friendly manner, with Sony using materials such as bamboo, sugar cane, and recycled paper for the packaging, aligning with Sony’s sustainability commitments. Additionally, the smartphone is designed with accessibility in mind, featuring enhanced Voice Control and ‘TalkBack’ functions to help users navigate the device effortlessly.

Sony’s Xperia 1 VI is available in three colors: Black, Platinum Silver, and Khaki Green, allowing users to choose a style that best fits their personality. For more details and to place a pre-order, visit Sony’s official website.
