Sony Xperia 1 V


The Xperia 1 V is a creator’s dream, offering cutting-edge technology to cater to the ever-changing needs of modern content creators.

The most notable feature is its world-first image sensor, the new “Exmor T for mobile”. Coupled with an 85-125 mm optical zoom lens, this flagship smartphone delivers outstanding image quality, capturing vibrant colours and textures even in low-light environments.

Embracing Alpha Series Technology

Drawing from Sony’s renowned Alpha camera series, the Xperia 1 V equips creators with powerful features such as S-Cinetone, Creative Look, and Real-time Eye AF. These advancements enable users to elevate their photography skills straight from their smartphone.

Unrivalled Sound & Display

The Xperia 1 V boasts a 5-inch 4K OLED display and a robust, low-noise speaker amplifier, delivering an unprecedented viewing experience. Its 4K display is complemented by a long-lasting 5,000mAh battery, allowing up to 20 hours of continuous video playback.
