According to the latest rumor, Sony is reportedly planning to release its next flagship earlier in 2024 – specifically at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona at the end of February. This would mean that the announcement would be made about three months earlier than the Xperia 1 Vs, which itself launched at the end of July.
If this rumor is true, it indicates that the Xperia 1 VI will be released in time to compete with other major Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 flagship phones such as the Galaxy S24 Ultra and the Xiaomi 14 Pro.
Another aspect of the rumor suggests that the Xperia 1 VI will be equipped with a large sensor 6x zoom camera. This would provide a zoom capability of approximately 140mm, surpassing the current 125mm or 5x zoom capacities. Additionally, the camera will feature Sony’s Clear Image Zoom capabilities.
Lastly, Sony will remain committed to its tradition of shipping the Xperia 1 VI in a sustainable package, made with recycled materials and without any accessories.
