Add in a 6.5" 4K 120 Hz HDR display, durable water-resistant chassis, and ample 512GB of storage, and the new XPERIA 1 IV can tackle nearly any mobile project.

North American Variant / US Compatible LTE
The XPERIA 1 IV is a North American variant. It may be used in other parts of the world; however, LTE access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network. Please choose your country/carrier above to confirm the network compatibility of this phone.
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) allows you to lower your mobile costs when traveling while staying connected. Once your SIM cards are installed, you will be able to receive phone calls and text messages from either without needing to manually choose which one is active. When you want to make a call or send an SMS message, you can select the correct SIM card. When one SIM card is being used for a phone call, the other will not be active until you hang up. Operator charges may apply.
Pro Camera System
Each of the rear lenses supports 4K HDR video at up to 120 fps, but creators will really love the optics and shooting adjustments implemented by Sony's Alpha 9 engineers. The three lenses include a 12MP 16mm ultra-wide, a 12MP 24mm wide angle, and a 12MP telephoto. The telephoto in particular stands out with an optical zoom range of 85 to 125mm. You can actually seamlessly zoom from 16 to 375mm, switching from digital to optical and back.

For still photography, you can benefit from precision similar to that of the Alpha 9, with real-time Eye AF and AF/AE at 20 fps burst for all lenses. The real-time Eye AF boasts the ability to work on both humans and animals, and Eye AF tracking in real-time is available for photos and videos. In addition, you're supplied with 10-bit raw support, manual controls, and a 3D iToF sensor to allow for accurate background separation that delivers smooth bokeh. On the front of the phone is an 8MP selfie camera to handle your selfie needs.

4K Display
The display is also upgraded from the XPERIA 1 III, with a brighter 6.5" 4K 120 Hz HDR OLED screen with a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio. The display's quality makes it a versatile feature, letting you use it as a viewfinder for filming, as a camera monitor, or to stream UHD media and play the latest in mobile gaming.
Livestreaming
Setting it apart from other smartphones, the XPERIA 1 IV can livestream footage from your DSLR, or you can connect the phone to your camera to use it as a hi-res monitor. This is possible via the USB Type-C and an optional USB Type-C to micro-HDMI adapter cable.
Studio-Quality Sound
Using Sony's Music Pro, you can achieve studio-quality sound by recording onsite with the phone's mic and uploading it directly to the cloud. Once uploaded, AI processing cleans up the audio as needed. Note that this processing is only free for the first month up to 100MB, but just recording audio is always free.
Faster 5G Transfers
From livestreaming to AI-processed audio, all of it can be sent to and downloaded from the cloud even faster with the XPERIA 1 IV. Compared to the XPERIA 1 III, you now get access to both sub6 and the super-fast mmWave spectrums of 5G where available. This can equate to download speeds of up to 5.6 Gb/s and uploads up to 480 Mb/s.

Sony Xperia 1 IV Reviews

Marketing Over Sell

By Mark
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-21

Clearly at $1500 you are expecting certain things from a creator phone touting camera centric features. Marketing over promised here. The Bad 1. Battery Life at 5000mah struggles to last 18 hour day under most conditions. 2. Bloatware pre-loaded (non removable)(Facebook, Linked In, Tidal etc.) 3. Documentation on Camera modes is trash. There are 4 apps for creation, audio Pro, video pro, cinema phone pro, photo pro. It's so convoluted. 4. Cinema Pro App does not allow selection of 3840 recording and has look files that play like LUTs but are just filters. No documentation of what they do, all look like trash. All autofocus options are gone. Why no LUT selection or basics like BT1886 etc? 5. Video Pro allows 3840 recording, but there is no exposure meter, no way to enable it, no look files, but has autofocus like face/object detection. 6. Phone cannot handle heat, always throttling. Forget wireless charging in car. In video pro using autofocus tracking mode at 70F good luck getting 2 minutes before a heat warning and it disables auto focus. 7. No control over audio gain etc in video modes. 8. Auto photo mode is average at best. When you use manual mode and understand what the lens are capable of the photos at 85mm and 125mm can be amazing for mobile lens and sensor. 9. Pro video results are also best when using ND keeping shutting locked at 1/48. But if you don't use a good gimbal it's very hard to get good footage. (Too heavy for OSMO 6 with ND and any wind) 10. Front facing camera, no manual controls. 11. USB video monitoring is limited. The Good 1. Manual adjustments for video and photo are exceptional. 2. Phone speakers are good. 3. Manual photo mode at 85mm is great. 4.AutoISO, 1/48 shutter, digital level, great options. 5.HLG and other HDR options even in video along with H264 and H265 recording 6. Video Pro mode allows streaming directly to YT etc. But longer stream are gonna overheat phone and kill battery fast. Bottom line, disappointed.

Cannot find s better phone.

I want to thank the staff at b&h they did a great job and delivering my product and a timely manner. My product was shipped once it was available and in great condition. I am looking forward to doing business with this company I have purchased several items from this company and they have always delivered. They are one of the few companies that sell the Sony Xperia 1IV which is a camera first before it's a phone.

I wanted to get this phone as soon as it became available. I got my package shipped from B&H the day when it was released - faster than if I would order it directly from Sony. Activated immediately - excellent US version (with mmwave, international versions do have have mmwave))!!! Very happy and satisfied about this phone (no any other phone has this level of sensor and telephoto lens) - same goes with B&H (no any other vendor can have this item in stock and ship this fast - B..tB.y had it backordered until recently)!!!
