Concept images of Sony Xperia 1 IV 5G show the design of this flagship
New concept images of the Sony Xperia 1 IV 5G have been released that show its design.
The release date of the Sony Xperia One Mark 4 5G is approaching; Because recently, the information of this smartphone has been revealed and its renderings have been published in cyberspace.
Xperia One Mark 4 5G concept images are now shared so that we can become more familiar with its design.
According to Gizmocchina, the front and back images show the Sony Xperia One Mark 4 5G.
The device is equipped with a flat, non-cropped 6.5-inch display with a 21: 9 aspect ratio, 120Hz refresh rate, and 4K resolution, which also features Sony’s traditional bezels and high standard design. The screen is also protected by Victorian Gorilla Glass and supports HDR.
On the back panel, the Xperia One Mark 4 5G has a set of vertical cameras with three lenses. Also, the LED flash is placed under the first two lenses, which are responsible for the exposure in different conditions. The smartphone is expected to use ZEISS brand cameras. There are no details about these sensors. If you recall, the previous generation also had three sensors on its back panel, and for the second and third cameras, ultraviolet and telephoto lenses were used. We can expect the same on the Xperia 1 IV.
The smartphone has a power button on the right that is integrated with the fingerprint sensor. Sony’s new smartphone is expected to be IP68 certified.
Since this device will be in the flagship category, it seems that it will come with a Snapdragon 8 generation chip with 12 GB of RAM and a maximum of 512 GB of storage memory.
According to leaked information, this phone may be equipped with a 5000 mAh battery with the ability to support 45-watt fast charge technology.
The Xperia 1 IV, like the previous model, is expected to have a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port.
The mentioned phone will run the Android 12 operating system.
Sony Xperia 1 IV 5G: design and functions
Sony’s often out-of-the-box choices have not borne fruit in terms of sales, however, the manufacturer does not give up and continues to want to distinguish itself from the rest of the competition, starting from the elongated aspect ratio that has identified its smartphones for years and the thin frame. maintained so as not to pierce the display.
Even Sony Xperia 1 IV 5G will remain faithful to these identity traits, with thin upper and lower bezels, but sufficient to accommodate camera and speaker, and above all symmetrical, for an overall look that is always balanced and elegant like few others.
In the rendered images you can see the work that Sony should do to make the edges even flatter, in line with the latest market trends (think of the iPhone 13, but also of OPPO Reno 7).
As for the technical data, we are talking about a 6.5-inch display with an aspect ratio of 21: 9, with 4K resolution, HDR support, and 120 Hz refresh rate.
All protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.
According to rumors, Sony will resume a feature adopted first and copied by many:
the fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button, with all the advantages of precision and speed deriving from this solution.
The Japanese manufacturer will not even give up the usual extra button for the camera, as always with double stroke for focusing and shooting. Instead, the button dedicated to Google Assistant will be eliminated.
The SIM compartment is located on the underside, next to the USB-C port and the second system speaker (which paired with the first will guarantee the usual excellent experience with 360 Reality Audio and Dolby Atmos) and, strange to say, but there should even be the port for the 3.5mm audio jack.
Sony Xperia 1 IV 5G will not be a compact smartphone, they report dimensions of 164.7 x 70.8 x 8.3mm (9.5mm in correspondence of the cameras) and will be provided with the usual IP68 certification against water and dust.
The photographic sector of Sony Xperia 1 IV 5G is still shrouded in mystery: if the design does not move too far from that of the predecessor, the characteristics are not clear.
There may be a single 8MP front camera, followed by a triple rear camera with various focal lengths, ZEISS optics, and night mode (that’s everywhere now). Only time will tell us more.
Powerful hardware and Android 12
Sony has a long tradition of very specific choices on software: the interface is generally Android practically stock and is then completed by a set of proprietary apps specially designed for the multimedia part.
In this case, we will clearly see Android 12 at launch and a relaunch on updates is also hoped for: Samsung is doing school and Sony is still stuck at 2 versions of Android for the top models.
As for the power, Sony will certainly rely on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and will support it with lots of RAM, perhaps 12 GB, and internal memory (256 GB and 512 GB expandable via microSD).
There is still a lot of uncertainty about the Sony Xperia 1 IV 5G battery: the current model offers 4,500 mAh with fast charging at 30 watts, with the new Sony flagship it could go to 5,000 mAh and 45-watts.
The charger will be included in the sales package (except overturns) together with a cover.
Availability and prices
In the coming weeks, we will know more about Sony Xperia 1 IV 5G, which will be offered in the two colors green and black (but the renderings show a purple variant) at a certain high price: Xperia 1 II started from 1,200 euros, Xperia 1 III from 1,299 euros; the hope is that at least there will be no increases.
If Sony were to do, as usual, Xperia 1 IV 5G will be announced in the spring, but it will arrive on the market with months of delay.
