No other mobile has this and now we have a Norwegian price

Sony has unveiled the camera system for the upcoming Xperia 1 IV, a mobile with the longest product side we’ve ever seen.

Sony is betting everything on photography…

According to the company, this is the first mobile phone with a “true optical 85-125 mm zoom lens.”

There is also support for 4K @ 120 FPS, direct streaming and with the option to connect to an external monitor. It’s all powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

For external display support, Sony announces this:

Use the Xperia 1 IV as an external 4K monitor or viewfinder with a variety of useful settings such as brightness, zoom and grid. And enjoy streaming streaming video services with Alpha image quality via the external on-screen feature. You only connect a camera that supports USB Video Class (UVC).


Price: 13,490 kroner. The launch is supposedly 1 September, but we have not been able to confirm this for the Nordic countries.

… But also wants gaming and music fans

There are three lenses in the Xperia 1 IV:

  • 16 mm ultra-wide angle
  • 24 mm vid angle
  • 12MP front camera
  • Optical telephoto with 85 to 125 mm zoom

Sony not only appeals to the photo enthusiast, but also gamers and music lovers:

Xperia 1 IV delivers the best of Sony to all users and creators. There are unique features for videographers and photographers, and a great help for mobile players, whether they are eSports players or streamers. Hi-fi enthusiasts are taking advantage of decades of Sony audio and music expertise along with new Music Pro for studio-style song recordings. And movie lovers will appreciate the brightest 4K HDR 120 Hz screen ever on a smartphone. ”

Incredibly, it therefore also has 3.5 mm:

“Listen in high quality with a 3.5 mm corded jack plug, wireless headphones or concert-quality stereo speakers, and record your own songs with the new Music Pro.”

Xperia 1 IV has Optical SteadyShot with FlawlessEye, which combines the image sensor’s increased reading speed with Sony’s original optical image stabilization algorithm. The result is very stable video images that do not shake.
