A well-known insider @OnLeaks posted on the network renders of the future Sony photo flagship. Images based on leaked CAD renders show the distinctive design, triple camera, and large 6.5-inch screen.
The smartphone will receive a metal frame, a glass back panel, as well as a fingerprint sensor and a special button for taking photos on the side. The approximate parameters of the smartphone are 164.7 x 70.8 x 8.3-9.5 mm, that is, in general, somewhat smaller than the Xperia 1 Mark III. At the same time, the novelty will be slightly thicker than its predecessor, which means that it will certainly receive a more capacious battery.
The fresh photo flagship is also expected to retain a 3.5mm audio jack, a triple-camera setup on the back, and a front-facing camera above the display. It is assumed that the Sony Xperia 1 IV will go on sale in two color variations – matte green and black.
Sony previously confirmed that the new Xperia series smartphones will be based on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 mobile platform. The official presentation of the Xperia 1 IV is expected in the coming weeks, and the device will go on sale in the beginning of the second quarter of 2022.
