Sony has been frequent with product launches in the audio segment, however, the Japanese tech giant has slowed down its pace with smartphones. But the company hasn’t called off its mobile division entirely and is gearing up to introduce a new Xperia series flagship phone for the masses. Sony is now refreshing the Xperia 1 lineup with the fourth-gen model. Giznext has managed to grab exclusive renders of the upcoming Sony Xperia 1 IV and some additional details. Following are the details:
Sony Xperia 1 IV In Works; Here Are The Renders
The Sony Xperia 1 IV exclusive 5K render images that Giznext has received leave a little to the imagination when it comes to design. The upcoming Xperia 1 series flagship phone will flaunt a similar design language as its precursor, i.e, the Xperia 1 III.
The Xperia 1 IV will also feature a flat-edge design like the previous-gen model but with slightly different dimensions. The handset will come with 164.7 x 70.8 x 8.3mm dimensions and 9.5mm thickness (camera bump included).
Upfront, the Xperia 1 IV will adorn a flat-edged panel with a tiny selfie camera embedded within the top bezel (no punch-hole cutout or waterdrop notch). The back panel has an elongated vertical camera module with three sensors and an LED flash. The bottom panel can be seen packing the SIM card tray along with the USB Type-C port charging and data transfers.
The Xperia 1 1V retains a 3.5mm headphone jack which is housed on the upper left of the top frame. The left panel of the Xperia 1 IV is kept barren, however, the right spine is a storehouse for the volume, power, and the shutter key. The company seems to have skipped the dedicated Google Assistant key which was present on the previous-gen model. The same has been confirmed by our source.
Notably, the power key on the Xperia 1 IV integrates a physical fingerprint scanner for biometrics. That said of the design, the 5K renders also hints at dual-color options including a matte greenish and black. We are currently not sure if these are the only two options or the brand will introduce some additional shades as well.

Our source has also suggested the Sony Xperia 1 IV will be launched with a 6.5-inch flat display. However, the panel type and specifications are not confirmed at this point. Likewise, the triple rear camera setup is said to feature one telescope sensor, but the remaining sensor type is still at large.
It would be interesting to see if Sony just borrows the design elements from the Xperia 1 III, or the hardware features as well. Giznext is trying to get some additional information related to the next Sony premium range phone’s features and availability and will keep you updated with the details.
