It seems like one of the rumors about the Xperia 1 V isn’t entirely accurate. The Sony Xperia 1 V has been benchmarked on Geekbench once again, but despite the best efforts of some fans, the original score remains unknown.

The Geekbench entry is purportedly for the Sony XQ-DT72 model, which is assumed to be an Xperia 1 for 2023, according to SumahoDigest. For GPU testing, the OpenCL score is 11,647 points, which is roughly double the previous score (Adreno 740 iGPU vs. Adreno 730 iGPU).

Since the iGPU components of the Xperia 1 IV and Xperia 1 V are supposed to perform better than one another, it appears that this particular benchmark leak is quite shady, but another rumor from ZACKBUKS looks more reliable.

LG Innotek’s optical zoom module can provide 4x-9x magnification and is so small as to eliminate the need for a camera bump, according to the well-known Xperia leaker. Sony moving away from its own camera expertise would be shocking.

It took more than two-and-a-half months for the Xperia 1 IV to launch in China, and it took over two months for the Xperia 1 III to launch in the UK and US. The Xperia 1 V’s testing phase, according to a different insider, is already two months ahead of schedule compared with its 2022 predecessor. This could result in a launch in April 2023. Hopefully, the Sony Xperia 1 V will arrive in the US, UK, and other countries by June for fans outside of China.
