Although Sony is no longer one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, the Japanese company always manages to score with unique functions that no other company uses. But there are always problems that plague smartphones.
Expected Sony Xperia 5 IV with older processor
Actually everything sounded so good. The Sony Xperia 5 IV is supposed to be a more compact version of the Xperia 1 IV and eliminate many of the limitations of the predecessor. For example, the new cell phone should also be able to be charged wirelessly. The use of the new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 was also expected, which was a clear one less heat development has and the smartphone can therefore run faster over a longer period of time because it does not heat up. This dream seems to be bursting (source: sumahodigest).
While the brand new Xperia 1 IV with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 suffers from massive heat problems, will Sony will continue to use this processor in the Xperia 5 IV, although a much cooler chip is available in the form of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The Xperia 1 IV Pro is also said to come with the “older” processor, which causes heat problems. After only a few days with the Xperia 1 IV, testers were disappointed:
The cooling of the Sony phone is simply not enough to compensate for the massive heat development of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Instead of learning from it, the Xperia 5 IV and Xperia 1 IV Pro continue to be equipped with the problematic chip and are therefore too warm.
What makes the Sony Xperia 1 IV so unique:
Why is Sony doing this?
There have been many decisions made by Sony in recent years that were incomprehensible. When asked, there were never really clear answers. Most of the time, however, one got the impression that Sony doesn’t want to put the current flagship in a bad light. That would happen here if the Xperia 5 IV suddenly got the better processor. So instead of easily fixing the error and installing the new processor, this generation of smartphones could remain full of problems. At the latest when the Xperia 5 IV is presented, we will see whether the information about the processor is confirmed.
