As usual in these situations, a new leak has overshadowed Sony’s official unveiling of the Xperia 1 VI, its all-out flagship for this year.

There are plenty of specs in this leak, most of which we are already familiar with, as well as some leaked images that appear to have come from a company source – we wouldn’t be surprised if some of these slides would be used in the presentation.


The new Sony Xperia 1 VI will sport the same 6.5″ FHD+ HDR LTPO OLED panel on the front. It will even come with a 120Hz refresh rate along with HDR10+ and 10-bit color depth support. It also features TRILUMINOS Display for mobile, X-Reality for mobile, and comes with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on both the front and back of the device. There is also a 240 Hz touch sampling rate and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

The new Sony Xperia 1 VI is powered by SD 8 Gen 3 SoC coupled with 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB/512GB storage space. It also gets MicroSD card support. For better gaming performance, the phone has a Game Enhancer, an FPS Optimizer, and a vapor chamber.


It will feature triple rear cameras with 48MP (f/1.9) 1/1.3.5″ Exmor T with Zeiss main coupled with 48MP 1/2.5” Exmor T ultra-wide with f/2.3 aperture and 48MP Exmor T periscopic telephoto lens with 60x lossless zoom.
