The Sony Xperia 1 IV could be getting a big camera upgrade

It’s likely there will still be an official Sony Xperia 1 IV charger to buy direct from Sony if you absolutely must have another charging brick in your home. The handset may well come with a USB cable as well, so could recharge it from another device like a laptop.

According to the rumour mill, the new Sony Xperia 1 IV flagship smartphone will include a selfie camera improvement but will not come with a charging adapter. That latter trend (via Notebookcheck) is unsurprising, given that most phone makers are following suit. Because many of us already have chargers, it makes environmental and financial sense to stop include new ones with every smartphone sold.

As for the other piece of leaked information (also via Notebookcheck), the Xperia 1 IV is rumored to be getting a selfie camera upgrade, with the upcoming smartphone in line to offer a 12MP snapper on the front of the phone, embedded into the display. You may remember that the Sony Xperia 1 III sports an 8MP selfie camera: while megapixel counts aren’t everything, this does suggest that the selfie camera on Sony’s next phone will be significantly better than the one on its predecessors. We’re previously heard that the phone’s rear cameras will be upgraded too.

When it comes to the question of a launch date, a teaser video posted by Sony a couple of days ago points to Wednesday May 11 being the big day. Coincidentally that’s also the day that the Google IO 2022 developer conference is scheduled to get underway. When it comes to lists of smartphone specifications, the quality of the selfie camera isn’t something that many of us check first. We’re more likely to look at the internal processor (showing the phone’s speed), or the cameras that make up the rear camera module, before glancing at the selfie camera spec.

Considering how many selfies get snapped every hour of every day though, that’s quite strange. They’re the go to photo choice for capturing what’s happening during the day, whether it’s drinks with friends or a funny moment with the pet. Photos taken with the selfie camera require good-quality lighting and focus just as much as those taken with the rear camera, even though the specs are usually significantly inferior. That’s partly due to the limitations of the form factor of course.

Hopefully the Sony Xperia 1 IV will come with a formidable selfie camera – Sony can be relied upon when it comes to its camera lenses. When picking your next phone though, it’s perhaps worth making a note of how good or otherwise the selfie camera is.
