In a teaser trailer on YouTube, Sony confirmed that it will be launching its flagship smartphone, the Sony Xperia 5 V, on September 1 in Japan. In the announcement video, Sony gave a few glimpses of the device and a couple of photo samples taken with it. 

The smartphone is coming exactly one year after the Xperia 5 IV made its debut. According to the brand, the device is set to debut on Friday, September 1 at 4 p.m. Japan time, and there will be a live stream on YouTube.

Meanwhile, a tweet from the popular mobile tipster Abhishek Yadav, who also confirmed the official launch date, shared some expected features and images of the smartphone. Now, let’s look at what to expect from the new Sony Xperia 5 V, as depicted in the leaked images and specs from the tipster.

Sony Xperia 5 V: Here’s What to Expect

As we can see in the leaked images, the Xperia 5 V is expected to have two cameras this time around, a primary (wide) camera and an ultra-wide lens, unlike its predecessor. It’s interesting to note that the phone will probably still have a 3.5mm headphone port. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which is also present in some of the top Android smartphones this year, is anticipated to power the Xperia 5 V.

As per earlier rumors, the Xperia 5 V is said to have 16GB of RAM, which would be a substantial improvement over the Xperia 5 IV’s 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Additionally, Android 13 is also presumably pre-installed on the new smartphone.

The Xperia 5 V hasn’t been the subject of many leaks or rumors, but it’s safe to assume that it will still have a 6.1-inch OLED display with an FHD+ (1080p) resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. Again, a 5000 mAh battery is anticipated to offer sufficient battery life. All of these specifics will, of course, be verified in a week, on September 1st, when the device goes official.
