Play without limits

Designed in collaboration with professional eSports players, Xperia Stream is custom-built for the Xperia 1 IV to maximise its gaming performance. Key features include a total cooling system, multiple ports and a specialised design for intensive gaming and streaming.

Designed in collaboration with pro players

Xperia Stream was conceived following discussions with eSports players about the rigorous demands of professional gaming. To challenge for world championships, pro gamers need to be able to play for extended periods with the highest quality gaming settings enabled. So Xperia Stream combines outstanding cooling performance with easy cable management and a comfortable shape for hour after hour of high-intensity play.

Play hard, stay cool

The total cooling system drives airflow along the body of the Xperia 1 IV, creating a continuous air stream from the back to the front. This regulates the temperature, making it possible to play even high-load games for long periods of time.

Optimise cooling and unleash the power with Game enhancer

Game enhancer displays the status of your device and controls the fan automatically when cooling is needed – or you can adjust the fan's rotation speed manually. By regulating the temperature of your device in this way, Game enhancer helps to stabilise gaming performance. It also offers thermal boost, a dedicated setting for Xperia Stream, which enables the phone to handle extremely demanding loads, such as high resolution games and high frame-rate games.

Prevents overheating and protects your battery

When using a charging cable for gaming, Heat Suppression power control powers the phone system directly rather than charging the battery. This reduces thermal stress, helping to maintain gaming performance and keep your battery healthy for longer.
