Sony Xperia 1 V | The Sony Phone We Needed? | TSW154

The Sony Xperia 1 V boasts a major camera upgrade vs the Mark IV, namely a fresh 24mm Exmor T sensor which can apparently take better night shots. Hopefully my unboxing and review of the Sony Xperia 1 V will be live soon but here’s a run through of all of the big specs, features and upgrades.

As always, it’s the Alpha camera tech that’s most compelling on this 2023 Sony flagship smartphone. While the ultra-wide and telephoto zoom lenses appear very similar to the IV, the Xperia 1 V serves up an all-new primary sensor that’s larger than before. You can shoot 12MP pics with improved low light performance, according to Sony. And also up to 4K 120FPS video, using all three lenses.

Other improvements include that Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, pumped-up stereo speakers and a new grippy deisgn.

Are you tempted by the Sony Xperia 1 V? It’ll cost you around £1299 when it hits the UK at the end of June, so get saving/organ harvesting now!
