Sony has just released the new Xperia 1 IV (Mark 4) smartphone that features a continuous zoom camera that promises pro-grade imaging and video capture.
Last year’s Mark 3 featured a focal length telephoto camera that could only toggle between 70mm and 105mm focal length. The successor, however, has completely different and far more advanced focal length capabilities.
Because of the revolutionary new design, the Mark 4 zooms in more at the far end which can toggle between 85mm to 125mm with 3.5 to 5x optical magnification.
Additionally, the three 12MP rear cameras feature 4K video recording at 120 fps, Optical SteadyShot with Flawless Eye, Eye AF, real-time object tracking, and autofocus.
The front camera is upgraded to a 1/2.9-inch ExmorRS 12MP lens. This is up from the 8MP lens on its predecessor.
Here are the key specs of the Xperia 1 IV:
|Chipset||Snapdragon 8 Gen 1|
|Display||6.5-inch QHD+ OLED 120Hz|
|Battery||5,000mAh 30W fast charging|
|Rear Camera||12MP main camera|
12MP telephoto lens

The pricing of the Sony Xperia 1 IV starts at around EUR 1,300 in Europe and pre-orders are now available and will ship in June. As for the American market, the Mark 4 will be available for USD 1,600 in September.
