There are just a few days left until the presentation of the new generation Sony Xperia 1 flagship, the fourth: the appointment is for 11 May, and to keep the interest of fans high, the Japanese company has published a short official teaser on the Chinese social network Weibo. The details that are leaked are not many, but it is clear that the primary target of the teaser (and consequently of the smartphone) are the content creators.
Not only does the accompanying post itself say so, but in the video it is observed Pierre T. Lambert, photographer and YouTuber which has collaborated over the years with a variety of brands (including Google Pixel) and which speaks, without revealing too much, of the capabilities of the photographic sector of the smartphone. We can expect a physically very large camera, according to Lambert’s words.
The rumors leaked so far corroborate (in more detail, fortunately) what the photographer said: we are talking about a 48 MP sensor in 1 / 1.28 “format and with individual pixel dimensions of 1.22 micrometers (naturally with optical stabilization). At least two secondary cameras: one ultra-wide angle, with a 48 MP sensor but smaller (0.7 micrometer pixels) and a telephoto with the same sensor as the ultra-wide angle. The rest of the specifications (always presumed, of course) can be summarized as follows:
- display: 6.5 “, flat, 120 Hz
- chip: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
- RAM: 12/16 GB
- storage: 256/512 GB
drums: 5,000 mAh
- charging: 45 watts with Power Delivery and wireless charging
- operating system: Android 12
The smartphone could be significantly more expensive than the previous generation, precisely due to the qualitative increase of the cameras: we are talking about + 20% in the worst cases. If nothing else, the 3.5mm audio jack.
