The pre-orders for the Sony Xperia 1 IV were disappointing

We’re not sure where Anthony got these numbers, but there you have it. Take this information with a grain of salt, though, as it’s not official. It would be interesting to see more specific info, though. Pre-sales for the Xperia 1 III were not all that bad, considering numbers for a number of previous models. Now, the Xperia 1 IV will go on sale in Europe in June, but it won’t arrive to the US until September.

The Xperia 1 IV, Sony’s latest flagship, was introduced earlier this month. Pre-orders are now open for the smartphone, which did not go on sale right away. Now, it appears that pre-orders for the Sony Xperia 1 IV are underwhelming, at least in terms of numbers. According to a source, pre-orders for the Sony Xperia 1 IV have been disappointing. According to Anthony aka @TheGalox_, pre-orders for the Xperia 1 IV are “just a third of those for the Xperia 1 III.” Users don’t appear to be as enthusiastic about the Xperia 1 IV as they were about the Xperia 1 III.


  • When it comes to specs and features, the Xperia 1 IV is a true powerhouse. It features a 6.5-inch 4K OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It includes 12GB of RAM and 512GB of expandable storage. A 5,000mAh battery is also included here, as are both wired and wireless charging. Android 12 comes pre-installed on the device, while the Xperia 1 IV is IP65/IP68 rated for water and dust resistance.

  • Sony does this basically every year, and it’s possibly a reason why users don’t seem to be overly interested. The company announces its new smartphone, but doesn’t make it available for purchase anytime soon. Well, truth be said, Europe will get it about a month after launch, but the same cannot be said for the US. On top of that, the Xperia 1 IV is quite pricey. The pricing for the device starts at $1,599. That basically makes the device more expensive than the competition, and Sony doesn’t have such a major pull in the smartphone market. The company has been making really compelling phones for a long time, though.
