The upcoming Sony Mobile flagship, the Xperia 1 V, has already made quite a buzz in the tech community with its leaked appearance image, impressive benchmark scores, and model number. Fans are eagerly waiting for the official announcement and release of the device, and recent leaks have shed some light on the upcoming smartphone.
While detailed specs of the Xperia 1 V are still not confirmed, sources suggest that the device will feature top-of-the-line hardware and software components. Rumors indicate that the phone will come with a high-resolution OLED display with HDR support and a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone is also expected to pack a powerful camera system, featuring a triple-lens setup with advanced imaging capabilities. What’s more, the Xperia 1 V is rumored to be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (8 Gen 2) with some exclusive customizations for image processing.
Overall, the Xperia 1 V is shaping up to be a top-tier smartphone, offering premium features and specifications. There have been conflicting rumors about the camera system of the Xperia 1 V, with some suggesting that the phone will feature a 48MP sensor, while others suggesting that there won’t be any major upgrades to the camera system.
If the latest leak on Weibo is accurate, it suggests that the Xperia 1 V will feature a triple-lens camera system, with a wide-angle lens, a super wide-angle lens, and a telephoto lens.
Here are the rumored camera sensor sizes for each lens on the Xperia 1 V:
- Wide angle (standard): 1/1.4 inch
- Super wide angle: 1/2.5 inch
- Telephoto: 1/2.9 inch
- Front: 1/2.4 inch
As mentioned above, the Xperia 1 V will feature a triple-lens camera system, with a wide-angle lens, a super wide-angle lens, and a telephoto lens. The camera sensors for each lens are also listed, with the standard wide-angle lens having the largest sensor size at 1/1.4 inch. The super wide-angle and telephoto lenses have smaller sensor sizes of 1/2.5 inch and 1/2.9 inch, respectively.
The front-facing camera is also mentioned in the leak, with a sensor size of 1/2.4 inch. While the leak doesn’t provide any additional details on the camera features or capabilities, it does give us an idea of what to expect from the camera system on the Xperia 1 V.
If the information about the sensor sizes in the leak is correct, then it’s possible that the Xperia 1 V will have a 12MP resolution for each of its camera sensors. Some of the best smartphone cameras on the market today have lower pixel counts, but excel in other areas such as low-light performance and dynamic range. Therefore, even if the Xperia 1 V has a 12MP resolution for each of its sensors, it’s still possible for it to produce high-quality images.
However, the camera sensor sizes for the Xperia 1 V appear to be slightly different. Here are the camera sensor sizes for each lens on the Xperia 1 IV for comparison:
- Wide angle (standard): 1/1.7 inch
- Super wide angle: 1/2.9 inch
- Telephoto: 1/3.5 inch
- Front: 1/2.9 inch
As you can see, the Xperia 1 IV’s standard wide-angle lens had a slightly larger sensor size of 1/1.7 inch, compared to the Xperia 1 V’s 1/1.4 inch sensor. However, the other sensors on the Xperia 1 V appear to be slightly larger than their counterparts on the Xperia 1 IV, such as the super wide-angle lens and the front-facing camera.
As per the source, the Xperia 1 V will have a completely updated camera system with four sensors, including a wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, and a front-facing camera. This would mark the first time that Xperia has featured a compound eye camera system, which could potentially offer improved versatility and image quality.
According to rumors, the Xperia 1 V is expected to be announced in May. The exact release date of the Xperia 1 V may vary by region, but it is rumored to be released in either June or July following its announcement in May.
