- Leaked Sony Xperia 1 V renders show a familiar design.
- Outdated phone specs suggest a camera upgrade is on the cards.
- The phone appears to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack and physical fingerprint reader.
Sony is one of the few brands that still retains older smartphone features in its flagships, such as a 3.5mm headphone port and microSD storage. It looks like the Sony Xperia 1 V will also inherit these features from its predecessor and get some improvements.
High-quality Xperia 1 V renders leaked (via OnLeaks, GreenSmartphone) over the weekend, showing a largely unchanged design compared to the Xperia 1 IV. The phone apparently gets the same boxy design with a 6.5-inch flat screen.
Sony made minor changes on the back, with the flash now housed within the triple camera island. Speaking of which, Sony may eventually move away from the 12MP wide-angle sensor and move up to a 48MP shooter, as per the leaks. The other two sensors are expected to remain 12MP snappers. Another 12MP selfie clicker is expected on the front.
Zeiss camera branding is missing from the render. However, that could just be due to the initial nature of the leak.
Elsewhere, the render also features a 3.5mm headphone jack and a power button with an embedded fingerprint sensor. There’s a USB-C port at the bottom, next to the SIM tray.
Sony will likely equip the Xperia 1 V with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Rumors also suggest it could sport 16GB of RAM, up from 12GB last year.
Regarding the launch date, the company has not revealed anything officially. Leaks suggest Sony could announce the Xperia 1 V later this month, with availability scheduled for the summer.
