Behold the decidedly acquainted however neatly refined Sony Xperia 1 V in high-res renders

In relation to flagship design refinements, we won’t consider any smartphone producer that does a greater job yr in and yr out of sustaining its model id whereas holding the gradual and marginal progress going than Sony.

The corporate is unlikely to start out from scratch and put out a radically redesigned new high-end Android handset in 2023 both, as an alternative seeking to retain just about every part that made the Xperia 1 IV stand out from all different contenders for the title of greatest telephone in 2022.

One thing previous and one thing new 

On the identical time, after all, Sony is evidently making an attempt to do a couple of issues in another way on the Xperia 1 V (pronounced Xperia One Mark 5) because it continues its pursuit of the right tall smartphone. 

Primarily based on a brand new set of renders revealed by the all the time dependable Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka @OnLeaks, in collaboration with Inexperienced Smartphones, the decidedly unconventional and completely iconic 21:9 side ratio is not going anyplace, and neither is the general sharp, squared, and boxy look of the corporate’s most superior Android-powered slab.

What’s totally different is the digital camera module on the again, which gathers all of the sensors and the LED flash extra neatly collectively whereas purportedly protruding “a bit” greater than the rear-facing shooter system of final yr’s Xperia 1 IV.
Simply as rumored (and as pictured) earlier this month, the Xperia 1 V appears to ditch its predecessor’s (largely ineffective) 3D ToF (Time of Flight) and RGB coloration sensors, which additional contributes to a cleaner and extra organized look from behind.
From the entrance, we won’t say Sony’s subsequent massive (cellular) factor is in any method distinctive for the time being, though its general dimensions are anticipated to go down from 165 x 71 x 8.2mm to 161 x 69.3 x 8.5mm. 

Because the 6.5-inch display screen dimension is prone to go unchanged, that may solely imply one factor – the already fantastically symmetrical bezels might be lowered to provide a (barely) extra compact physique. Below the hood, after all, a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor is all however assured to run the present, probably alongside as a lot as 16 gigs of RAM and nearly actually with a 5,000mAh battery additionally on deck.

Identical ports, identical buttons, identical classical attraction

Maybe a very powerful change may see the secondary wide-angle snapper becoming a member of a main 12MP digital camera and a tertiary 12MP telephoto lens on the Xperia 1 V’s rear go up from a 12 to a 48 megapixel rely, though that is removed from etched in stone and clearly unimaginable to corroborate with the assistance of manufacturing facility CAD-based renders like those we’re taking a look at at this time.

These presumably dependable computer-generated pictures solely appear to substantiate the survival of the normal 3.5mm headphone jack and just about the identical placement of the identical buttons and ports on the Xperia 1 V as on its forerunner.

Sony’s signature fingerprint scanner-including energy key on one aspect of the handset is of course nonetheless there, and the identical goes for the unchanged quantity rocker and all the time useful digital camera shutter button. There is not any cause to count on the microSD card slot to go away both, so we are able to positively perceive in the event you’re at the least intrigued by this unorthodox different to Samsung’s sizzling new Galaxy S23 Extremely beast.

It stays to be seen if these hopeful pricing rumors that primarily pop up yearly will materialize eventually with a extra reasonably priced new Sony flagship in a couple of weeks or so. Sure, the Xperia 1 IV solely noticed daylight in Could 2022, however the Xperia 1 V is tipped for an official announcement by the tip of this month by a variety of credible insiders. Who’s excited?
