The Sony Xperia 1 V is depicted in a render based on reports to have a similar design as the Sony Xperia 1 and include a 3.5mm headphone connector, which equipment makers have since eliminated.
One of the few manufacturers still offering high-end smartphones with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot is Sony. Along with various configuration enhancements, it appears that the Sony Xperia 1 V also has some features from its predecessor.
On February 11, a high-quality render of the Xperia 1 V was shared via the OnLeaks and GreenSmartphones channels, demonstrating that the device’s look is essentially the same as that of the Xperia 1 IV. Overall, it has a 6.5-inch screen and a square, flat shape.
On the rear, Sony made a slight adjustment. Instead of being isolated like in the previous generation, the flash is now housed inside the module that houses three cameras. GreenSmartphones believes that Sony is finally making an effort to enhance its specs. The other two lenses on the wide-angle camera may be changed, but the sensor can be increased from 12 MP to 48 MP. The selfie camera has a resolution of 12 MP as well. The recognizable Zeiss logo isn’t there in the montage, though. This could be so since there was no mention of a partnership between Sony and the German manufacturer of optical equipment in the early speculations.
The power button with a fingerprint sensor and the 3.5mm headphone port are further noteworthy features. Near the SIM tray at the bottom is where you’ll find the USB-C connector.
Sony’s Xperia 1 V will probably include a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. Additionally, according to rumors, it could include 16GB RAM as opposed to the 12GB found in the Xperia 1 IV from a year ago.
Regarding the release date, the corporation has not made any announcements. According to rumors that have surfaced, Sony may reveal the Xperia 1 V later this month, and the product will go on sale in the summer.
