Sony's flagship smartphone, the Sony Xperia 1 VI (pronounced Mark 6) surfaced online and is expected to be launched later this year. Before the official launch, camera specifications for the device have been revealed online, courtesy of Insider Sony.
In line with its predecessor, the Xperia 1 V, the upcoming flagship will boast a triple camera configuration, each equipped with 48MP sensors. Notably different from its forerunner, which incorporated only one 2-layer Transistor Pixel stacked CMOS image sensor (Exmor T for mobile), the Xperia 1 VI will feature all sensors utilizing this technology.
The main camera boasts a 48MP 1/1.4″ sensor with a pixel size of 1.12μm, offering a 24mm wide-angle lens with in-sensor zoom capabilities, enabling 48mm (2x) shots.
With the full-pixel dual-PD AF feature, the camera can swiftly and accurately focus in various lighting conditions, including low light. Enhanced 1080p video recording with EIS support is also anticipated.
Additionally, a dedicated 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera features a 1/2.7″ sensor with a pixel size of 0.6μm, capable of capturing 14-18mm shots with autofocus functionality.
The camera setup includes a 48MP 1/2.7″ periscope telephoto sensor, sporting a pixel size of 0.6μm. The periscopic lens provides zoom ranges from 70-105mm to 85-125mm to 70-135mm, enabling 3x optical zoom extendable up to 6x via sensor crop.
Details regarding the front camera and other essential smartphone specifications are currently undisclosed. However, based on available information, the rear camera setup appears to offer enhanced specifications.
Further insights into this flagship smartphone are anticipated to emerge in the forthcoming weeks.
