There is no official launch date for the Sony Xperia 1 V yet. There’s still a chance that the Sony smartphone will take the stage at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. At least the leaks regarding Sony’s next flagship are slowly increasing. A series of new high-resolution renders have surfaced online today, now offering a taste of what the Xperia 1 V could look like.
In short, Sony isn’t really going to change much from its well-known design. This is also supported by the previous rumors, which, among other things, brought to light a leaked photo of the back. Accordingly, Sony will slightly adjust the camera module of the Xperia 1 V. Compared to the Sony Xperia 1 IV, the ToF and RGB IR sensors have disappeared. This leaves only three large sensors, which also look larger than on the 1 IV. The bottom one houses a befitting periscope zoom camera. The LED flash has moved into the island on the upcoming model, while on the predecessor it was outside the island above.
In the wake of the new images, some alleged technical data also came to light. According to this, the Sony Xperia 1 V measures 161 x 69.3 x 8.5 mm, compared to 165 x 71 x 8.2 mm for the Xperia 1 IV. According to the source, the phone will keep its flat 6.5-inch display, likely with the same aspect ratio of 21:9. Accordingly, the Xperia 1 V should have much narrower display edges.
Like its predecessor, the Xperia 1 V is said to offer a 12-megapixel main camera and a 12-megapixel periscope telephoto lens. According to previous reports, the ultra-wide will be upgraded from 12 to 48 megapixels. On the front, the selfie camera has a resolution of 12 megapixels. A Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset should take over the drive. This would make the 1V the thinnest smartphone to date using Qualcomm’s current flagship platform.
