Sony Xperia 1 IV’s 12-megapixel main camera sensor is no different from the previous two generations
Apparently Sony Xperia One Mark 4 (Xperia 1 IV) into three It has a 12-megapixel primary camera, but HWiNFO seems to tell a different story. Actually Xperia 1 IV from one of Huawei P30 Pro cameras and also Xperia 1 IIand Xperia 1 III has also used in its new flagship .
The first reviews of Sony’s Xperia 1 IV were published about two weeks before the release of this phone. For some reason, despite focusing on the camera capabilities of this device, Sony refrained from providing more details about the camera sensors of this product. Fortunately, ePrice and GSMArena have addressed the camera sensors used in this phone.
Referring to the image below, NotebookCheck points out that the Xperia 1 IV uses only IMX series sensors, however, Sony has decided to equip the device with some older sensors, including the IMX557 as the main camera. In comparison, Sony has also used this sensor in the Xperia 1 II and Xperia 1 III. It’s safe to assume that the company has made software improvements to its cameras over the past few years, but it still means that the Xperia 1 II and Xperia 1 IV are powered by a 24mm sensor with 1.8μm pixels and a 1/1.7-inch optical format.
Furthermore, HWiNFO reports that the telephoto sensor in the Xperia 1 IV is the same IMX650 that was last used in the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro. This 40-megapixel sensor uses a 1.7-inch optical format. On the one hand, HWiNFO might be reporting incorrect data, which seems unlikely, and on the other hand, the Xperia 1 IV might be using the 12-megapixel IMX650 notch; Just like what he did with Xperia Pro-I.
