It’s only a matter of time before the Xperia 1 V becomes available. This year’s MWC in Barcelona is still a possibility for the phone to make an appearance. Sony’s next flagship has been the subject of leaks in the meantime. We now have a great early look at the device thanks to a set of new high-def renders.

Sony won’t really change much about its iconic design. At least, that’s what rumors suggest. The back of the phone has been leaked in recent times, according to rumors. This photo corresponds nicely with these renders.

Sony appears to be tweaking the camera island of the Xperia 1 V slightly. In comparison to the Xperia 1 IV’s camera island, you’ll notice that the ToF camera and the RGB IR sensor have been removed. Thus, we are left with three large sensors, the lowest of which houses a periscope camera. In comparison to last year’s model, the LED flash has been moved inside the island, rather than outside it, above it.

Some alleged hardware specs are also included in the new set of renders. It is estimated that the Xperia 1 V will measure 161.0 x 69.3 x 8.5 mm, as opposed to the Xperia 1 IV’s 165 x 71 x 8.2 mm. According to the source, the phone will retain the same 6.5-inch flat display, likely with the same 21:9 aspect ratio. On the Xperia 1 V, we can expect noticeably slimmer display bezels if all of these measurements are accurate.

Like its predecessor, the Xperia 1 V will have a 12MP main camera and a 12MP periscope telephoto. According to reports, its ultrawide camera will be upgraded to 48MP from 12MP. Xperia 1 V should keep its 12MP selfie camera.
