The Sony Xperia line has a legendary history. The first Xperia model was first introduced in 2013. Last year’s Xperia 10 IV isn’t the newest smartphone on the market anymore, but it’s still a decent phone. As we get further into the year 2023, it’s time to start hearing about what the next-gen Sony Xperia 10 V might build on last year’s phone. We’ve also been seeing leaks and hearing rumors about another upcoming Xperia phone called Xperia 1 V.
We haven’t heard much about the Xperia 10 V, we’re getting our first glimpse at early renders for of this phone. Thanks to OnLeaks for the renders. Unsurprisingly, the Xperia 10 V look pretty similar to the previous Xperia 10 lineup and other recent Sony phones. It comes equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, which is embedded into the power button.
The Xperia 10 V is showcasing a familiar design, a slightly bigger screen, and a three-camera setup with LED flash on the back, but it doesn’t have any hole-punches or water-drop notches on the screen. You can also observe the button layout in these renders. Both the volume rocker and the power buttons can be spotted on the right side of the device.
The USB Type-C port and the primary microphone on the bottom are located on the bottom portion of the phone, and it also has the 3.5mm audio jack on the top, along with the secondary microphone. The Xperia 10 V is slightly larger and thinner — at least according to these leaked dimensions — measuring 153.3 x 68.4 x 8.5 mm compared to the Xperia 10 IV’s 153 x 67 x 8.3 mm. It is expected to feature a slightly bigger 6.1-inch screen, since the phone could be a bit wider.
The Xperia 10 V is expected to be officially launched in May, around the same time the previous model launched in last year. We’re still a c couple of months away from ahead of the launch, we’ll hopefully know more soon.
