The compact version of Sony’s smartphone received an updated Xperia 5 IV model (I wonder what name its successor will have). It came out in a familiar corporate design. And in addition to a comfortable case, the smartphone offers improved cameras.

The main unit has three sensors: wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle, and telephoto. Now there is support for the company’s Real-time Eye AF focusing system for portraits and a “super-fast” continuous shooting mode even with HDR.

All sensors have a resolution of 12 MP. Sony spokesman El Dean Naude told TheVerge that the company did not intentionally increase the resolution, but increased the size of the sensors for better night shooting and speed.

The model has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage with the possibility of expansion with a memory card. The battery capacity is 5000 mAh.
