At this point, the smartphone war has been going on for well over a decade. And while Apple and Samsung often dictate the conversation, another household name is making its presence felt once again. With Sony’s reveal of the powerful Xperia 1 IV, the tech manufacturer’s fourth-generation smartphone sets itself apart with nearly-unrivaled camera capabilities.

For any phone’s camera to stand out nowadays, you’d expect it to offer some jaw-dropping qualities. As a result, Sony took it upon itself to implement a revolutionary camera in its latest Xperia, equipped with what it claims to be “the world’s first true optical 85-125mm zoom lens.” On top of this mesmerizing range, you can even capture 4K footage at 120fps and live stream mobile games with ease, going to show this new model is suitable for all content creators.

The 5G-capable, Snapdragon 8-powered phone boasts a crisp, 6.5” 4K HDR OLED display and 360-degree audio compatibility, as Sony has practically packed the visual prowess of a BRAVIA television into this handheld device. For added security, it has an IP65-waterproof rating and a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus display, the latter of which is remarkably durable.

If you’re a shutterbug looking to make the most of your phone’s camera, then you might be better off making an upgrade. Sony’s Xperia 1 IV is now available to pre-order on its site for $1,600 and is slated to release on September 1.
