Though it hit retailer cabinets late (actually late in some locations), the Xperia 5 III is almost a 12 months outdated now – it was introduced in April of 2021. This implies a alternative must be across the nook and one Weibo person claims to have inside information on what the brand new cellphone will probably be like.
The Sony Xperia 5 IV will allegedly persist with the 6.1” display screen diagonal, so the cellphone must be roughly the identical dimension as the present mannequin. Nevertheless, it will likely be a tad heavier at 180g (up from 168g) and it’ll use Gorilla Glass Victus (non-plus) on either side.
The principle digicam will use the IMX557, a 12 MP sensor beforehand featured on the Xperia 1 II. Being 1/1.7” in dimension implies that it has 1.8 µm pixels, bigger than different telephones available on the market have.
