Sony is expected to release a new lineup of Xperia devices in the first half of 2023, which includes the Xperia 1 V, Xperia 10 V, and a rumored domestic model, the Xperia ACE IV. Recently, images of protective films for the Xperia 1 V and Xperia 10 V were leaked online, giving a sneak peek into the possible design of these upcoming devices.
In recent days, there have been numerous leaks surrounding the highly anticipated Xperia 1 V and 10 V smartphones. Some of the most notable Xperia 1 V leaks have included Bluetooth 5.3 certification, protective cases, and rumors about the Xperia 1 V having the “most powerful” ultrawide camera capabilities. These leaks have generated excitement among fans of the Xperia line, who are eagerly awaiting the release of these new devices.
One of the most interesting leaks concerns the protective films for the Xperia 1 V and 10 V. Photos of the films show that the Xperia 10 V has a cutout for the speaker at the bottom, but there is no noticeable indentation at the top. This suggests that the Xperia 10 V may have a monaural speaker, similar to its predecessor, the Xperia 10 IV.
On the other hand, the protective film for the Xperia 1 V appears to have a larger cutout for the top speaker than the previous model, the Xperia 1 IV. This has led to speculation that the speaker on the Xperia 1 V may be larger than the one on the previous model. However, it should be noted that these details can vary depending on the manufacturer of the protective film, and nothing has been confirmed yet.
As for the bottom speaker of the Xperia 1 V, the rendering images suggest that it will be placed on the front, but the leaked protective film does not show any cutout on the bottom. Therefore, it’s unclear how big the bottom speaker will be.
However, it’s important to note that different protective film manufacturers may have different designs, so it’s not certain whether the leaked images are accurate.
While fans eagerly await official news from Sony about the release date of the Xperia 1 V and 10 V, it is rumored that the company typically announces new products about two weeks before the official launch. As of late March, there has been no official announcement, which suggests that the release of the Xperia 1 V and 10 V may not happen until mid-April or later. Nonetheless, these leaks continue to generate excitement and anticipation for what promises to be an exciting release for Sony’s Xperia line.
Sony typically announces new products two weeks before the official launch event, and as of the end of March, there has been no official announcement for the Xperia 1 V or Xperia 10 V. This suggests that these devices may be announced no earlier than mid-April 2023.
