Sony launches new Xperia 1V smartphone packed with Sony’s cutting-edge technology
Sony today announced the world’s first flagship smartphone equipped with a newly developed stacked CMOS image sensor with 2-layer Transistor Pixel the Xperia 1 V. The 24mm lens on the back of the Xperia 1 V is equipped with the “Exmor T for mobile” sensor, which is around 1.7 times larger than its predecessor. The Xperia 1 V supports the needs of creators with its high-performance technology, such as the 85-125mm (F2.3-F2.8) optical zoom lens that enables bright portraits with little distortion. It depicts rich colors and textures in even the darkest locations, thanks to the combination of low-light performance and high-speed multi-frame overlay processing technology.
The S-Cinetone adjustment, installed for mobile, beautifully expresses the texture of human skin, resulting in cinematic images without color grading. Various presets, including Creative Look, are available for users, along with high-performance real-time AF and AI depth analysis that clearly focuses on distant subjects. High-speed continuous shooting of up to 30 frames per second with AF/AE tracking is also available. The Sony Xperia 1 V also boasts an improved Vlog experience with Product Showcase Setting and a voice priority mic near the rear camera, which clearly records the creator’s voice even in a noisy outdoor location. During YouTube live streams via the “Videography Pro” function, viewers can leave comments in the comment section, allowing for real-time interaction.

The powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen2 Mobile Platform enhances CPU power efficiency by around 40%, and the battery maintains 80% or more of its maximum capacity even after three years.
