Improved Content Capture
The Xperia 1V is raising the bar with its’ newly developed image sensor. Due to the combination of the low-light performance, which is approximately double compared to the previous model and the high-speed multi frame overlay procession technology of the Xperia 1V, it is possible to shoot a noise resistant photo with a wider dynamic range that is equivalent to a full-frame camera.
The 24 mm lens on the back of the Xperia 1V equipped with a 2-layer Transistor Pixel stacked CMOS image sensor which is about 1.7 times larger than previous image sensor. In addition, the 85-125 mm (F2.3-F2.8) optical zoom lens enables bright portraits with little distortion.
The Xperia 1V has a multitude of functions including colour presets such as Creative Look, also found in Alpha series cameras, and high-performance real time AF (auto focus). Additionally, high-speed continuous shooting of up to 30 frames per second with AF/AE tracking is newly available.
4K OLED Display
Packed into the flagship Xperia smartphone is a 6.5-inch 4K OLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The powerful and low-noise speaker amplifier improves the spread and depth of the sound, and the extension of the low and high frequencies, creating a more dynamic and clear sound. Xperia 1V offers an authentic viewing experience of movies and music without a need for an additional speaker.
On the backside, it has a functional tactile design that uses a uniquely developed texture glass. Combined with the fine slits on the side, it provides a stable grip and prevents from slipping when you hold the smartphone during shooting or viewing.
Large 5,000mAh Battery
Despite using a 4K display, approximately 20 hours of continuous video playback is available with a powerful 5,000mAh battery. It supports wireless charging, 30 minutes quick charge up to 50%, and furthermore, Xperia’s unique charging optimisation technology supports users with a battery that maintains 80% or more of its maximum capacity even after 3 years.
Sony Xperia 10V
Compact and lightweight, the Sony Xperia 10V is easy to carry everywhere yet boats a best-in-class 5,000mAh battery, newly equipped front stereo speakers, a bright OLED display and a triple lens camera.
Entertainment on the Go
The stereo speakers at the front of the phone deliver powerful, balanced true stereo sound. In addition, the 6.1-inch, full HD+ OLED display is approximately 1.5 times brighter than the previous model, improving visibility outdoors. The TRILUMINOS Display for mobile draws on Sony’s years of TV expertise to optimise the display for movie viewing.
Equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack, it also supports wireless transmission technology LDAC, so you can enjoy high-resolution high-quality sound with both wired and wireless headphones. In addition, DSEE Ultimate, which uses Sony’s proprietary AI technology, reproduces the sound source of the streaming service with high-quality sound equivalent to high resolution.
Beautiful Snapshots Made Easy
Capture life to the full – made easy with Xperia 10V. The camera uses scene conditions and subject detection technology to automatically select the ideal settings for the best shot, so you don’t need to waste time choosing settings.
With a choice of three lenses on the rear camera (focal lengths 16mm (F2.2), 26mm (F1.8), and 54mm (F2.2)) a host of different shots are possible. In addition, the wide-angle lens is equipped with a new image sensor that is approximately 1.6 times larger than the previous model, allowing more light to be captured and enabling clearer shooting in darker locations with less noise. Optical image stabilisation makes it possible to take beautiful shots of difficult-to-shoot dark locations, scenes with large contrasts, and night scenes.
Light, Tough & Beautiful
Officially the world’s lightest 5G smartphone with 5,000mAh battery at 159g, it can offer a huge 34 hours (approx.) of video playback. In addition to IP65/68 waterproof and dustproof performance, the display is durable thanks to Corning Gorilla Glass Vicus that is highly resistant to both drop and scratch performance.
The Xperia 10V comes in the same colours (lavender, sage green, white, black) as Sony’s latest fully wireless headphones WF-C700N (sold separately). So, you can enjoy colour coordinating your smartphone and headphones when out and about.
For ease of use, Xperia 10V is equipped with “Side sense” for quick shortcuts to apps and “21:9 Multi-Window Switch” that divides the screen into two sections so you can easily browse the web and watch a video at the same time using its full 21:9 display.
