Sony Xperia 1 V, already hot rumors: 48 MP and an impressive optical zoom

There is still time to go to the Sony Xperia 1 V presentation, but the rumors are already in good shape. There’s a lot of excitement about the camera’s specs, and it’s an area where Sony has narrower margins of error than others if only because it offers sensors to most (and not) Android manufacturers, and thus it’s at the top of the range it can’t get the scaling wrong – wrong – darkens. From the rumors filtered from China and picked up by specialized Japanese websites, it seems that in Tokyo, at least on a technical level, it will not betray expectations. There is no doubt about adopting the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the next generation of the top-of-the-range chip that Qualcomm should introduce soon. Needless to say there is a complicated deal by touching the subject of cameras. But in China they seem to have very clear ideas of what’s going to happen. The changes will be different: the rear cameras will again be three as on the Xperia 1 IV, but if they are all 12MP on the back, they will all be 48MP. Four times the resolution to marry the reason for pixel binning, the system that merges four pixels into one for 12MP photos as on the Xperia 1 IV but with brighter pixels (we simplified a lot, but if you want to deepen the recent discussion on the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra and a 200MP sensor will clarify your ideas). It is said that the main sensor will be the same as the one that Sony sends to the factories where the iPhone 14 is assembled but with some differences in subject matter, while for the ultra-wide angle there is always a 48MP 1/2, 4″ sensor with 12-megapixel pixel binning, however For the telephoto lens, we will talk about the Sony Xperia 1 V. Rumors talk about a great camera with an equivalent focal length of 70-200 mm. Two years ago with the Xperia 1 III, Sony stunned enthusiasts and observers with its first 70-105mm variable focal length binocular telephoto lens, with the Xperia 1 IV we reached a continuous zoom between two focal lengths (with fixed lenses) 85 -125mm while with the Xperia 1 V It seems that the state of the art will be reached: a minimum focal length of 70mm and a maximum of 200mm. Translated, this means that assuming (and we shouldn’t be far from reality) a “classic” equivalent focal length of the main sensor of 24mm, the Xperia 1 V telephoto lens will offer a continuous optical zoom between 2.9 and 8.3x. The rumors come so far from the launch that the information may be inaccurate, but knowing Sony won’t be surprising. We’ll see if the following rumors confirm today’s reading or correct the shot.
