Android version and market relevance

In May 2022 was announced smartphone Sony Xperia 1 IV. It is located in the series Sony Xperia 1 among many others smartphones Sony.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Sony Xperia 1 IV works on Android 12, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2022. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Sony Xperia 1 IV, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Then we can make you happy, because Sony Xperia 1 IV works great with two SIM cards. And since 2020, after the official launch of 5G networks, it has become very important for most buyers that the new smartphone has high-speed mobile Internet. Sony Xperia 1 IV has support for fifth-generation networks, so you can choose it for purchase if it suits you for other characteristics and price.

Screen, body and battery

6.5-inch OLED touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Sony Xperia 1 IV. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 8.2 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 5 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thick case and very capacious battery.

The most interesting thing is that the screen in the Sony Xperia 1 IV has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The higher the value, the better. And this is very important in mobile games, because the high refresh rate makes the graphics smoother in the game. All smartphones with a display refresh rate of 120 Hz are collected in our catalog.

The case of the smartphone is completely protected from water and dust. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Take photos and videos on smartphone Sony Xperia 1 IV possible on the main camera (12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide + 0.3 MP Depth sensor) and on the front camera (12 MP Wide). We tried to group all smartphones in the catalog into segments and this model with such a main camera got in the segment of weak chambers. And today there are a lot of camera phones at affordable prices, which we recommend that you look at.

Processor and Internal Memory

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. Sony Xperia 1 IV has 8-core Snapdragon 8 Gen1 (4 nm). RAM here with size 12 GB.

Available versions Sony Xperia 1 IV with different amount of built-in memory: 256/512 GB. Note that the more memory, the more expensive the smartphone. And if there was not enough internal memory, then you can save the necessary data on the memory card microSDXC .

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

$1599 is the price for Sony Xperia 1 IV at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with an ordinary camera for photos and video, and with a conventional front camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? Here is the case that it is in Sony Xperia 1 IV that a very powerful battery is installed. And, if you need a smartphone with a very long mode of operation from one battery charge, then we recommend looking at this model, or similar smartphones with a powerful battery.

Sony Xperia 1 IV will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
