With a larger priority on portrait shooting, the Sony XPERIA 1 V 256GB 5G Smartphone delivers professional-quality content creation for a wide variety of social media influencers and enthusiasts. Upgraded is the 24mm wide-angle lens with a 48MP 2-layer stacked technology to let more light in, improving the XPERIA 1's night shooting ability. Multiple Creative Look presets let you dial in and stick with a specific style, new AI features improve image and video accuracy, and S-Cinetone captures accurate skin tones in cinema-like video. These are a few new features of the XPERIA 1 V, which still showcases a triple-camera system, huge 6.5" 4K 120 Hz OLED display, Hi-Res Audio listening and pro-style recording, and a slew of high-end gaming features.

What's New with the XPERIA 1 V
Sony takes a significant step forward in professional mobile content creation with the XPERIA 1 V. Images and video benefit from improved low-light performance, an upgraded wide-angle lens, and new AI processing. They've also added new features specifically requested by creators, and implemented new abilities focused on the popularity of vlogging. This is on top of audio and gaming upgrades to maximize the quality of your entertainment when you're not creating. Specific features include:

  • Faster Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform
  • Updated 24mm wide-angle lens with 48MP and a 2-layer transistor pixel technology for drastically improved low-light performance
  • Multiple Creative Look presets let you pick a style to shoot in
  • Vertical UI for stills and video for intuitive portrait shooting
  • No more holding up a hand to gain focus, as Product Showcase auto focuses on the object you're presenting
  • Video Priority microphone that better picks up who's in front of the camera
  • New gaming features and an integrated amp for improved front-firing sound
Pro Camera System
The triple-camera system on the rear of the XPERIA 1 V retains the Exmor RS for mobile 16mm ultra-wide and adjustable 85-125mm telephoto 12MP lenses. The wide-angle 24mm is back, but with a significant upgrade to an Exmor T for mobile, which incorporates a stacked, 2-layer structure that lets more light in for much better low-light results. This is in addition to an improved 48MP (effective), 120 fps, autofocus, and OIS. As a system, other improvements include AF/AE tracking burst, but now up to 30 fps and with bokeh. The following system features continue to be available to creators:

  • 4K 120 fps video recording
  • Real-time Eye AF for all lenses
  • Object tracking with Eye AF for video
  • Seamless zoom for video
Creative Looks
Normally you can take stunning 4K videos and high-resolution images to then post process to achieve the look and feel you're going for. With the following Creative Look presets, you can now select one that matches your stylistic goals, saving you time and giving you the ability to just shoot and share.

  • ST: Standard
  • NT: Lower saturation and sharpness in a subdued tone
  • VV: Highly clear images with bright, vibrant colors
  • FL: Moody look by applying sharp contrast to calm coloring
  • IN: Reduces contrast and saturation for a matte look
  • SH: Create a bright atmosphere with transparency, softness, and vibrancy
S-Cinetone for Mobile
Incorporating S-Cinetone for mobile, Sony gives you the ability to capture cinema-like video with accurate skin tone representation. It also provides three times the amount of saturation signal level compared to standard sensors, and noise is reduced in dark areas while creating soft colors.
AI Processing
A trio of AI processing advancements have been added to the XPERIA 1 V to more accurately capture the subjects you shoot and record.

  • AI Depth: Clear autofocus even on subjects in the distance using a depth map
  • AI White Balance: Accurate white balance in multiple light sources
  • AI Exposure: Accurate brightness in almost any environment
Improved Vlogging
Vloggers will enjoy the new Product Showcase and Voice Priority microphone of the XPERIA 1 V. Presenting a product to the camera in a review or unboxing can usually lead to you holding your hand behind it to gain focus on the object. Product Showcase now automatically detects the object and focuses on it, making your videos look more natural and professional. Voice Priority does something similar with audio, focusing on the subject speaking in front of the camera, minimizing the pickup of ambient sounds.
Requested by Creators
Sony doesn't produce a professional-quality mobile shooting platform in a vacuum. They listen to their creators and have implemented the following features they requested into the XPERIA 1 V.

  • Show peaking on Photo Pro, Video Pro, and Cinema Pro
  • When used as a monitor on an Alpha camera, view what you shoot and record it directly to the phone's internal memory simultaneously
  • New live chat viewing function for better interaction with fans on streams
Vertical UI
A new vertical UI in both Photo Pro and Video Pro show Sony's commitment to how you create, making it easier and more intuitive to shoot vertically.
Dynamic Sound
Sony adds a high-power and low-noise amplifier to the XPERIA 1's front-firing full-range speakers, improving fidelity and bass response. When listening, enjoy the sound system's Hi-Fi Audio output via the 3.5mm headphone jack, or Hi-Fi Audio Wireless quality via Bluetooth LE and LDAC. If you want to feel like you're in the studio with the band, you can try out Sony's 360 Reality Audio and 360 Reality Audio Upmix features
