Sony Xperia 1 V is Finally Here with a Headphone Jack, MicroSD Card Slot, Cinema-Like Video Quality, and Impressive Cameras

By this point, it is safe to say that we all know Sony knows how to do smartphones well, and the Sony Xperia 1 V is just proof of that. The phone went official earlier today and has become one of the best smartphones in the market that you can get your hands on. Sony's latest flagship brings everything one could want and more, thanks to top-tier specs that ensure you get the performance.
At $1,399, the Xperia 1 V might as well be the best Android smartphone of this year that you can buy in July
The Sony Xperia 1 V ticks almost all the boxes that make a perfect smartphone. You get stellar cameras, a microSD card slot, a headphone jack, a massive battery, and a beautiful screen. This can be yours at $1,399, making it the most expensive and decked-out smartphone on the market.
Considering how the focus is largely on the cameras, let's get that out of the way. The Sony Xperia 1 V comes with a massive 52-megapixel f/1.9 1/1.35-inch sensor that the company claims is 1.7x larger than the sensor found on the Xperia 1 IV. The sensor also has increased light sensitivity, allowing for much cleaner shots. The sensor manages to capture images at a 4.3:3 aspect ratio, but the photo and videos will only be shot using 48-megapixel, and of course, the 12-megapixel binned shots are also available. The fun part? You can even go ahead and shoot 4:3 videos using this camera.

Other cameras include a 12-megapixel variable telephoto camera that ranges from 85mm to 125mm zoom and a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera. The Sony Xperia 1 V also has a lot of other camera-related stuff, including the S-Cinetone option, Night Shooting, focus peaking, Creative Look, and more. The best thing is that you can use the smartphone as an external display if you have a Sony Alpha camera, making a complete photographic ecosystem.
Conversely, the Sony Xperia 1 V has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. You get a 6.5-inch 4K, 120Hz OLED display on the front. Sadly, this is not an LTPO panel, so the minimum is 60Hz. Powering the device is a 5,000 mAh battery that can be charged with 30W wired charging and 15W wired charging. The company does not give you a charger in the box.
Last but not least, the Sony Xperia 1 V comes with 12 gigs of RAM with 256 gigs of internal storage that can be upgraded using a microSD card slot. You also get Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on front and rear, an IP68 rating, dual stereo speakers, a shutter button, and sub-6GHz 5G.

As for pricing and availability, the Sony Xperia 1 V is launching in the U.S. in June and will run you $1,399. The phone will be available in Black, Khaki, Green, and Platinum Silver. Sony has not revealed the details of the phone hitting other regions.
