The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Sony, which took place in September 2022 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2022). This is a new model Sony Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition — dual 5G-smartphone works on Android 12, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. The manufacturer implemented functionality for working in 5G networks in this model. This means that you can use high-speed mobile Internet (up to 100 Mb/s) without delay with a stable signal. Agree that this should be very useful and we will all quickly get used to this quality of mobile Internet.

The case Sony Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition has a dust and water protection. Today this feature has already become the standard. Since 2017, more and more smartphones are manufactured with the protection of the enclosure in accordance with IP67, IP68, etc.

Main camera and selfie camera

An excellent camera with multiple lenses (12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide + 0.3 MP Depth sensor) was received by Sony Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition. And now you can definitely stand out with your photos among your friends. At least, thanks to the fact that two or more cameras will help you shoot excellent portraits with the Bokeh effect, and take photos with zooming, without much loss in image quality. And on the front of the smartphone we see a camera with one lens: 12 MP Wide. Today this is a weak camera. If you are looking for a good camera phone to take pictures of yourself, then be sure to look selfie smartphones in our catalog.

Price for Sony Xperia 1 IV Gaming Edition: buy or not to buy?

All these characteristics in 2022 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in September 2022 at a price of $1225. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.
