Sony Xperia 1 IV unveiled with revolutionary continuous zoom camera

11 May 2022
The outward design of the phone may look mostly the same, but Sony also upgraded the screen, speakers and the other cameras on the Mark 4.

SuuperBaka, 11 May 2022I wonder what people are gonna argue for thisNot much just a fct that Honor magic 4 ultimate looks better same gioes for Mi 12 ultra and upcomming Motorola frontier with pure clean android experience comapred to this Sony with nearly stock android where you get several unwanted bloatware, adaware, malware and simmilar usual sony bleach which 90% of customers will never use.

    Hamburger, 11 May 2022Please do away with that useless ultrawide camera. The pic... moreUltrawide is the artistic lens, it's really nice to play with it. Also you can always reduce greatly the distortion using the included soft of in post prod.

    Aside from being incredibly artistical, it is also one of the most useful when taking pic of appartment/house etc to sell/rent. Panorama are just low quality shit not even usable due to their format.

        Hildr, 11 May 2022Not sure the point is to sell a lot. Sony is not as famous... moreSony never advertising, while Samsung spends million.

        Here in UK we see adds everywhere, while Sony is well know from 70s , word off mouth Vs money

        Sony don't doesn't care not are greed

          960, 11 May 2022Possibly the greatest flagship of all time. Literally ticks... moreMan possibliy not.
          Honor magic 4 ultrimate is a lot better i am sure about that same goes for upcomming Motorola frontier and maybe Xiaomi 12 ultra.
          At least you get charger in the box.

            A thing I love about Sony is the fact that they can make amazing things. They can make many firsts. Continuous optical zoom? I thought OPPO will be the first, but Sony beat them too. Well done with the phone Sony!

              SuuperBaka, 11 May 2022I wonder what people are gonna argue for thisThe jealous ones who wish they had SD card 3.5jack , 2160p 4k screen and aplha series application on board and playing playstation games with emulator and 600ppi

              Majority are will hate

                Mr. Kroniks, 11 May 2022Sony delivers awesome products, as always. Their phones rea... moreLike most of the brands.
                Anyway Motorola frontier will be the camera beast of this year and no 12 mpix by Sony will beat it.
                Pure android experience at it best and nothing like a close to stock android with several bloatware and zero charger in box like Sony.

                  Kriegsherr, 11 May 2022What you said is true. But there is also other side of the ... moreComparing what's comparable:
                  Xperia 1 IV: 1399€
                  Iphone 13 Pro max 256 Go: 1379€
                  Galaxy S22 Ultra 256 Go: 1359€

                  So the phone by itself is at the same price point than its direct competitor, but it's true there are no "halved" version, for now...
                  What your friend want is the Xperia 5 IV that will more likely match the S22+/Iphone 13 pro.

                    Anonymous, 11 May 2022They just removed the charger. Not following other brands eh?You're ignoring all the good things they've kept & cherry-picking a controversial move.

                    Besides, a charger can be bought separately. But you can't add a 3.5mm jack or a SD card slot on any phone that doesn't have it already.

                      These are the smallest sensors currently available in any flagship phone.
                      Good luck filming anything during evening / night-time.

                        Wow 4k amoled. My S21 ultra Screen ist already nown worn out with various tints across the contrast spectrum. AMOLED is such garbage technology.

                          That's cool and all, too bad Sony's image processing is a literal meme.
                          If only GCam ports worked on Xperia phones...

                              Cutting corners and then green-washing it on a €1400 device is just undefensible.

                                  The Sony Xperia 1 IV meets all the requirements that a flagship smartphone should have.
                                  *glass front (Gorilla Glass Victus)
                                  *glass back (Gorilla Glass Victus)
                                  *Aluminum frame and no plastic frame
                                  *IP65/IP68 dust/water resistant certification
                                  *expanded card slot
                                  *3.5mm jack
                                  OnePlus 10 pro is trash and doesn't even have half the requirements that a flagship smartphone should have.
                                  *no gorilla glass Victus on the back
                                  *no IP65/IP68 dust/water resistant certification
                                  *no expanded card slot
                                  *no 3.5mm jack
                                  Sony is officially one of the top dogs in the flagship smartphone sector.🤣😂😋

                                    I know some of my friends are really interested about buying a Sony but they back off after seeing the price. Spending extra 300/400 bucks for a Sony compared to a iphone pro or Samsung doesn't make it a good deal considering accessories availability, software support etc. etc. . They would definitely buy if it would be available for the same price. I would at least definitely buy.

                                    I have a Xperia 1 mk I. Its really good, would be happier with android 12 though. Sometimes i am bothered by the 21:9 ratio, just that's it. Everything else is top notch even after 2.5 years.

                                      Anonymous, 11 May 2022Oh, so the rumors about the TSMC-sourced 8G1 releasing firs... morethe factory should be set up..and expect production around 2024..?that's what sony released in their press statement when they got into the contract
