Sony crams Xperia technology into its newest premium compact

The Xperia 5 IV premium tiny smartphone, a powerhouse for content creation that includes a ton of tech dropped down from the company’s 2022 flagship, the Xperia 1 IV, has gone on sale.

The phone’s dimensions are 156 x 67 x 8.2 mm (6.1 x 2.6 x 0.3 in). It has a 6.1-inch Full HD+ OLED display with a 21:9 aspect ratio that is said to be 50% brighter than its predecessor and is covered in Corning Gorilla Glass Victus which resists scratches.

With a 120 Hz refresh rate, 240 Hz motion correction, and 240 Hz touch responsiveness, the screen should allow for smooth action video playback and precise gaming. The user can adjust visual and sound settings for the best possible gaming experience. Even in low-light conditions, a 12-megapixel selfiecam embedded in the top bezel enables 4K HDR

Instead of choosing Qualcomm’s most advanced mobile platform to power this device, Sony has opted to take a step back and use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is supported by 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Although not as snappy as the most recent flavor, users should still experience performance that is quick.



The small phone includes a triple camera array with three 12-megapixel cameras: a 24-mm main camera with an F1.7 aperture and optical image stabilization, a 16-mm ultra-wide camera, and a 60-mm telephoto camera (also with OIS).

All rear cameras have object tracking and eye AF, and all HDR lenses support 20 fps AF/AE burst shooting. The array’s ability to record 4K HDR video at 120 fps with any of the rear cameras will appeal to people who enjoy include Matrix-like dramatic slow-mo scenes in their mobile video masterpieces. Livestreaming is also made feasible via the Videography Pro program. The smartphone can even be used as an external monitor for mirrorless cameras that are compatible.

The Xperia 5 IV features front-facing speakers that promise “clearer sound and low-frequency performance” as well as a 3.5-mm headphone jack, which is unusual for smartphones today. Listeners will be able to immerse themselves in Sony’s 360 Reality Audio via cabled or wireless earbuds as well as these speakers. LDAC high-resolution streaming is supported, and DSEE Ultimate AI-based upscaling has also been baked in.

With on-phone multi-track editing and access to “Sony’s proprietary sound source separation technology to decrease noise and separate vocal and acoustic guitar sounds,” the smartphone may be used as a field recorder for vocals and acoustic instruments.

Wireless charging has now been added to the list of specifications, while the 5,000-mAh battery still allows cable fast-charging to reach 50% capacity in 30 minutes.

From the end of October, the IP65/68 Xperia 5 IV will be offered for sale for about US$1,000. Preorders can be made right now.
