Everyone’s favorite compact flagship phone just got a refresh with the new Sony Xperia 5 IV.
Like its predecessor, the Sony Xperia 5 IV still has a 6.1-inch screen, in a world where flagships are 6.5-inches and up. It uses an OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate.
It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 octa-core processor, with a standard 8GB of RAM, and an option between 128GB and 256GB of expandable storage.
Despite its small size, it managed to have 5,000mAh battery, so expect good longevity on this one. It will come with a 30W charger and wireless charging capability.
Being a Sony device, the highlight here are the cameras. It has three 12-megapixel sensors with varying lenses. The one on top has a 16mm ultra-wide glass, below it is the standard 24mm with OIS and f/1.7 aperture, and lastly, we have a 60mm telephoto lens that also has OIS.
For durability, the Xperia 5 IV is sandwiched with Corning Gorilla Glass.
The Sony Xperia 5 IV has a price of USD999 (around Php56,700) and will be available in Europe, the UK, and the US this month. The release date in the Philippines is yet to be announced.
