Following the schedule, Sony today released the Xperia 5 IV flagship phone. To protect the environment, the machine not only does not come with a power adapter but also does not come with a data cable. We guess this trend will spread to other top companies as well.
Sony doesn’t like changing the appearance of its smartphones. The Sony Xperia 5 IV is no exception. It is basically the same as the previous generation. The phone adopts a narrow and long body design. The power button on the site integrates the fingerprint recognition scanner. Plus, there is a physical button for taking pictures.
Another highlight of the handset is the sound. The device retains a 3.5mm headphone jack and comes with a new structure of dual front speakers. The Sony Xperia 5 IV supports 360 live sound effects and Hi-Res high-resolution audio playback. Based on DSEE Ultimate and LDAC technology, users can enjoy high-resolution streaming content. Meanwhile, the Xperia 5 IV supports the latest Bluetooth Low Energy audio technology.
On the front, our protagonist sports a 6.1-inch FHD+ resolution OLED screen with a screen ratio of 21:9 and a 120Hz high refresh rate. The display brightness is 50% higher than the previous generation. The machine has a built-in real-time HDR driver, which can optimize the bright and dark details in the HDR10 display content.
In terms of performance, under the hood, the phone hosts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen1 processor. It is accompanied by 8+128GB storage. However, you can expand the memory to up to 1TB via the micro SD card.
Sony Xperia 5 IV Camera and More
Now, let’s talk about the biggest selling point of the Sony Xperia 5 IV – the camera. The handset comes with three 12-megapixel cameras. They all support 4K HDR 120fps video shooting. At the same time, the Xperia 5 IV supports eye focus and object tracking functions. The “Video Master” app can also access the live broadcast platform through the RTMP protocol and output high-definition live broadcast images.
On the front, we have a 12-megapixel 1/2.9-inch sensor.
The Sony Xperia 5 IV features a built-in 5000mAh battery that supports 30W wired fast charging. It can be charged to about 50% in 30 minutes. At the same time, the machine supports wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
The machine starts at 1,049 euros and will go on sale in October.
