Regarding the Xperia 1 V, it is confirmed to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 and will come with 12GB of RAM. However, there is still uncertainty surrounding the other specs of the device. The camera details, battery charging speeds, and display features are all revealed through some reliable sources. It is expected that the device will feature a premium design with high-end features and a focus on multimedia capabilities, as is typical of Sony’s flagship Xperia devices.
As for the Xperia 10 V, there is a possibility that it will feature a MediaTek Dimensity chipset instead of a Snapdragon one. The exact chipset and other specifications for the device are unknown at this point, but it is expected to be a mid-range offering with a focus on affordability.
A new piece of information regarding the release timing of these two models has been posted on Weibo. First, regarding the order of release for the Xperia 1 V, according to the post, the release will be in the following order: Hong Kong version/Taiwan version → European version/Japanese version/other Asian versions → Chinese version → US version.
The release order of the Xperia 1 series varies by country and region, but generally, the Hong Kong and Chinese versions and European versions are released earlier, while domestic models are released in the middle, Chinese versions are released inconsistently, and US versions are generally released later. Therefore, it is likely that the release order of the Xperia 1 V will follow this trend.
However, the information doesn’t provide any specific release dates, so it’s not very useful, but it does suggest that the release of the Xperia 10 V will be significantly delayed. On the other hand, the domestic release of last year’s Xperia 10 IV was also delayed by about a month from the Xperia 1 IV, which was released in early July last year.
Based on the information available, it is unclear how long the delay for the release of the Xperia 10 V will be. However, last year’s Xperia 10 IV was released in Japan about a month after the Xperia 1 IV, so it is possible that the release interval between the Xperia 1 V and the Xperia 10 V in Japan will be similar.
