Sony Xperia 1 V gets Android 14 with Video Creator, improved Bokeh mode

Ivan, 06 November 2023

Sony just started seeding the Android 14 update to the Xperia 1 V. The firmware brings the improved Bokeh mode from the Xperia 5 V, as well as the new Video Creator app. Sony announced the Video Creator app as part of Android 14, though it did previously release it for Xperia 1 V users as a downloadable app.

The Bokeh mode is Sony's Portrait mode and was much more impressive on the Xperia 5 V so it's great news that Sony has brought it over to the 1 V.

The Video Creator app is a neat app that's also available on the Xperia 5 V - it lets you create videos automatically (music included) by choosing which clips you want - the app then does the rest - kind of like Google Photos' new Highlight video. However, if you want to dig deeper, Sony's Video Creator app gives you intricate control and power user tools.

The update may take a few days to reach everyone. Sony is seeding Android 14 to the Xperia 1 V - no word on the firmware for the Xperia 5 V just yet.

I've plugged my Xperia 1 III into a big 4K monitor and couldn't find anything in any app that rendered clearly. The anti-aliasing was very nice but nothing ever was sharp.

No, they even pull it out from their website.

So is there 48mm mode available now for 1V just like on 5V?
