Here’s the first look at the Sony Xperia 1 VI. Hemmerstoffer shared CAD-based renders of the smartphone, revealing its design from every angle. It will be the successor to last year’s Xperia 1 V. Rumours of the Xperia 1 VI launch have been circulating for quite some time.


There will be no major changes to the overall design of the Sony Xperia 1 VI compared to its predecessor. A flat frame surrounds the device, with power and volume buttons on the right edge, the latter also acting as a fingerprint scanner. The camera shutter button is located close to the bottom edge on the same side.

Xperia 1 VI has a protruding camera module in the shape of a pill. The camera is equipped with three ZEISS lenses, as well as a periscope sensor. The bottom edge has a USB-C port and SIM tray, while the top edge has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Sony continues to stick with its old-school top and bottom bezel that isn’t too thick, unlike Android phones with bezel-less displays. There will be a 6.5-inch display on the device. The smartphone measures 161.9 x 74.5 x 8.4mm in terms of dimensions. As a result, it will be a bit smaller, wider, and thicker than the Xperia 1 V. This will change the aspect ratio from 21:9 to 19.59.
