The Xperia 1 V carries a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, a 5,000mAh battery with 30W fast charging support, and a triple rear camera unit including a 52-megapixel primary sensor alongside two 12-megapixel sensors. Although Sony has not yet given out any details about a successor, details about the Sony Xperia 1 VI have surfaced online.

X user Insider Sony (@INSIDERSONY) shared a leaked promotional image that suggests that the Sony Xperia 1 VI may be unveiled during a Sony event at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 on February 26. In a subsequent thread of posts, the same user shared details about the purported phone's rear cameras.

Similar to the current gen phone, the Sony Xperia 1 VI is likely to be equipped with a triple rear camera setup. However, the specifications of the camera units are expected to be different.

Notably, the Sony Xperia 1 V features a 52-megapixel 1/1.3.5-inch primary sensor with f/1.9 aperture, a 12-megapixel 1/2-inch sensor with an ultra wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture, and another 12-megapixel telephoto shooter with 3.5-5x optical zoom and 15.6x hybrid zoom. The handset was priced at $1,399 (roughly Rs. 1,14,700) for its lone 12GB + 256GB option.
