On September 1, a few top brands will hold new product launch conferences and announce new models. Sony is among them. We know that this company still remains in the smartphone field only for a single purpose, which is to keep fingers on the pulse. Anyway, those who love Sony know that this brand always comes in with amazing models. So we expect new outstanding smartphones from the Japanese first-tier tech firm. At least, there should be one – the Xperia 5 IV.
The Sony Xperia 5 IV has been certified by the FCC before, and the model was XQ-CQ62. As for now, it’s been spotted in the GeekBench benchmark platform. From the screenshot, we can see that our protagonist will have 8GB of memory, sport the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, etc. As you see, it lacks the latest Snapdragon 8 + Gen 1.
We said above that this device has managed to be certified by the FCC. The certification information shows that the Xperia 5 IV has a height of 155.74 mm and a width of 67.1 mm. That’s a bit shorter and narrower than last year’s Xperia 5 III, which was 157mm and 68mm, respectively. Thus, the company has made it more compact.
Additionally, the Xperia 5 IV’s screen is listed as 153.5mm diagonally, which is exactly 6.04 inches. Again, it’s slightly shorter than the Xperia 5 III’s 6.1-inch panel.
The rest of the noteworthy features include a USB-C port for charging and data transfer, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. The list also confirms that the new phone supports NFC and wireless charging. By the way, the latter was not supported on the previous three Xperia 5 models.
From previous leaks, we learned that the handset would come with a 12-megapixel AI triple rear camera. The latter should include a 12-megapixel main camera (Sony IMX557), a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle (IMX363) lens, and a 12-megapixel telephoto (Sony IMX663) lens.
Lastly, the Sony Xperia 5 IV will also support Wi-Fi 6 and RFID smart cards. The latter is what the Japanese customers need, as it’s very popular locally.
