Sony Xperia 1 VI will be a little shorter and a little wider

The upcoming Sony Xperia 1 VI will reportedly have a slightly shorter but wider display - but without 4K resolution.
Sony Xperia 1 V vs Xperia 1 VI

A few weeks ago, a rumor emerged that Sony would forego the 4K display on the upcoming Xperia 1 VI. The whole thing should be a consequence of the changed aspect ratio – 19.5:9 instead of 21:9. This means that the vertical resolution would drop from 3,840 pixels and therefore no longer reach 4K. This would also entail a change in the dimensions of the smartphone and a new leak reveals the new values.

The Sony Xperia 1 VI is said to measure 162 x 74.4 x 8.45 mm. That would be 3 mm shorter and a good 3 mm wider than the Xperia 1 V, i.e. 165 x 71 x 8.3 mm. The renders from last time show that Sony will stick to its traditional design with a top and bottom bezel. Therefore, loss of vertical space does not come at the expense of stereo speakers or the front camera. Sony installs the latter in the frame and not in or under the display.

The display itself measures 149.6 x 69.4 mm, which gives an aspect ratio of 19.4:9 and a diagonal of 6.49 inches. Compared to the Xperia 1 V screen, the display loses a little space vertically (2 mm), but becomes almost 5 mm wider.

The Sony Xperia 1 VI is expected to be presented in May. A previous leak already suggested that there could be a new variant with 16 GB. The basic version remains at 12 GB. The older leak also talks about the Xperia 5 VI (only 8 GB) and the Xperia 10 VI (6/8 GB). But there is no indication that these two Sony phones will also be presented in May.
