The amount of speculation, leaks and insider information regarding the upcoming Sony Xperia 1 V continues to grow with each passing day. Sony’s new high-end flagship phone, the Xperia 1 V, is expected to be officially announced in mid-next month. While there is little confirmed information about the specs, other than the chipset being Snapdragon 8 Gen2 and memory being 12GB RAM (at least for the base model), there is now another “confirmed” specification regarding the battery and charging capabilities of the Xperia 1 V.
Despite the lack of concrete information about the phone, reports suggest that it will have a robust battery and quick charging capabilities.
According to recently discovered benchmark scores, the XQ-DQ72 is most likely the upcoming next-generation Xperia 1 V. Further details about the device are scarce, but recent certification passing information has revealed a “confirmed” spec related to battery and charging.
The certification passing information shows that the corresponding voltage and current are 11V and 3A, indicating a charging speed of 33W. For comparison, the fastest fast-charging value of last year’s Xperia 1 IV and Xperia 5 IV was 30W. This means that the upcoming Xperia 1 V (and possibly 5 V as well) will be able to charge 10% faster than its predecessor.
Although the increase in charging speed is not a significant upgrade, it is a welcome change for users who have voiced concerns about the slow charging speed of previous Xperia flagship models. The increase to 33W charging speed for the Xperia 1 V is a modest but noteworthy improvement.
As for the battery capacity of the Xperia 1 V, there have been very few rumors or leaks regarding this aspect of the device. However, it has been suggested that the thickness of the device may be slightly increased from the previous model. If this is the case, there is a possibility that the battery capacity may also see a slight increase, though this remains to be seen.
Overall, the new Xperia 1 V seems to be shaping up to be an incremental improvement over its predecessor, with improvements to charging speed and possibly battery life. It will be interesting to see what other upgrades and features Sony has in store for its new flagship device.
