FCC Possibly Certifies Xperia 1 V, 10 V, and ACE 4 for 2023 Lineup

Two or three unreleased models that will make up the new Xperia lineup in 2023 have successfully passed FCC certification. The first model, with the FCC ID “PY7-12907W”, supports Wi-Fi 6 (ax), indicating that it is likely a high-end device with wireless charging support. Furthermore, the corresponding band in the United States suggests that it may be the domestic version of the Xperia 1 V for Docomo.

Meanwhile, the second Xperia model, “PY7-97087H”, was confirmed to have passed certification earlier. In addition, two other domestic models, PY7-83032A and PY7-38431P, have also been cleared by the FCC. These models are expected to be part of the Japanese Xperia lineup in 2023, with the Xperia 1 V, Xperia 10 V, and Ace IV being the possible choices for the first half of the year.

However, there is a concern that the two models, except for PY7-12907W, do not support Wi-Fi 6 (ax). The Xperia 10 V is expected to have Qualcomm’s latest mid-range chipset, the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1, which should support WiFi 6. If one of the models PY7-83032A/PY7-38431P or PY7-97087H is the Xperia 10 V, it will either have to use a chipset that does not support WiFi 6 or it may not be the Xperia 10 V at all. 

However, if neither of the other two models turns out to be the Xperia 10 V, it raises the possibility of a third mid-range device being added to the 2023 lineup that is distinct from both the Xperia 10 V and the Ace 4. Intriguingly, should the PY7-83032A/PY7-38431P or PY7-97087H not be the Xperia 10 V, it opens the door to the possibility of a third mid-range Xperia model joining the 2023 lineup, adding to the already diverse range of devices. The exact specifications of this mysterious device remain unknown

Although this point remains somewhat of a mystery, it is expected that more specs for all three models will gradually be revealed over the next few weeks, along with the chipsets they will be powered by.
