As we get closer to May 17, the number of leaks about Sony’s Xperia 1 VI is increasing. A leaked camera island from the phone hinted at larger camera modules than the Xperia 1 V, contradicting a previous rumor.

Currently, most rumors indicate that the phone will lose its 4K display and have a slightly more common aspect ratio. We have no idea what to expect on the price front so far, but we have an idea now. It is reported that to be the case in Taiwan, the phone will cost less than its predecessor. Instead of TWD 41,990 (Rs.1,07,500/-), the phone will cost TWD 39,900 (Rs.1,02,100/-).

This isn’t a huge price reduction, and even if this rumor is true, we’re not sure if we’ll see similar price cuts elsewhere – it may just be a unique situation in Taiwan. The Xperia 1 V’s price isn’t expected to increase even more than last year, which is good news.

the Xperia 1 VI will feature a 48MP, f/1.9, 24mm, 1/1.35 camera, as well as a 12MP, f/2.2, 16mm, 1/2.5 ultra-wide camera and a 12MP, f/2.3, 85mm, f/2.8, 125mm, 1/3.5 telephoto camera. As with the Xperia 1 V, which debuted with the Exmor T sensor last year, this camera hardware appears to be identical.

Sony may opt for software improvement rather than hardware improvements if this is true, likely with the help of artificial intelligence. Even though the camera specs might remain the same, the design is very likely to change. Sony’s upcoming Xperia flagship will ditch the 21:9 aspect ratio and adopt a more mainstream design, according to recent reports. The upcoming device will therefore be shorter and wider than its predecessors.
