More about the Sony Xperia 5 IV
The Sony Xperia 5 IV offers all the power of a flagship phone in a more compact body, making it one of the few truly powerful compact devices.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will ensure you get a flagship experience, while there’s support for microSD to expand storage and there’s a 3.5mm headphone socket – rare features on a modern phone.
This handset offers a 5000mAh battery – larger than the previous generation – while also supporting wireless charging, a first for the Xperia 5 series.
The triple camera system on the back offers three 12-megapixel cameras and draws from the experience of Sony alpha cameras to give you a better manual experience, while the front camera has been upgraded to a 12-megapixel sensor too.
