Sony has recently unveiled the Sony Xperia 5 V, a smaller version of the Xperia 1 V. The Xperia 5 V, as expected, integrates many of the characteristics of its larger sibling in a much smaller form. The Xperia 5 V will be available in three colors for €999, with just 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage accessible globally.
Sony has launched the Xperia 5 V, the company’s second flagship smartphone of the year, following the Xperia 1 V. The Xperia 5 V is more than just a scaled-down Xperia 1 V, as expected. Sony has specifically removed any telephoto lens from this year’s Xperia 5. Instead, the Xperia 5 V will take zoomed-in photos with its primary camera, as seen on the Xperia 1 V.
As a result, the Xperia 5 V has a 48 MP primary camera that outputs at 12 MP by default. The camera also has a 1/1.3-inch optical format, a 24 mm equivalent focal length, is optically stabilized, and can autofocus. Furthermore, Sony has 12 MP ultra-wide-angle and front-facing cameras with 1/2.5-inch and 1/2.9-inch optical formats in the Xperia 5 V. Please keep in mind that neither is optically stabilized, and the front-facing camera is also fixed focus.
Sony claims that the Xperia 5 V measures 154 x 68 x 8.6 mm and weighs less than 180 g. As a result, the gadget is almost the same size as its predecessor, albeit with a 2 mm shorter, 1 mm broader, and 0.4 mm thicker casing. Sony has, predictably, switched the Xperia 5 series to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 architecture, which it complements with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage across the board.
Other features, though, remain constant, such as the 6.1-inch OLED display, which remains a 1080p 21:9 panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Similarly, the Xperia 5 V retains its predecessor’s 3.5 mm connector, as well as its front-firing stereo speakers and 5,000 mAh battery with 30 W cable charging capabilities. So far, Sony has stated that the Xperia 5 V will be available in three different colors for €999. At the time of publication, no release date has been set.
