The latest images of the upcoming Sony Xperia 1 VI mobile phone have been shared by Android Headline. The renders provide a detailed look at the design and features of the device. The renders show the phone in two colors, black and white, although the actual colors look closer to dark gray and beige. The front of the phone has a straight screen design, with the camera placed on the forehead, resulting in thicker forehead and chin areas. This design choice is consistent with Sony’s signature style, which emphasizes a unique silhouette.

Changing the proportions

The Xperia 1 VI’s most significant design change is the move away from the 4K screen and ultra-long 21:9 aspect ratio that has been a hallmark of the Xperia series. Instead, the new phone is expected to adopt a more standard aspect ratio. This change is likely a cost-cutting measure for Sony, making the Xperia line more competitive in the market.

The Sony Xperia 1 VI has three cameras on the back, located in the upper left corner, and includes a Zeiss logo, indicating that the phone’s lens will use a Zeiss T* coating to reduce glare. The phone also has a 3.5mm headphone port at the top and all the buttons are concentrated on the right side, including the power button which acts as a fingerprint sensor, the volume rocker and the shutter button.

Protective cover and release date

Sony has also prepared a new protective bracket cover for the Xperia 1 VI mobile phone. The phone is expected to be launched on May 17 this year, according to a report by IT Home. This date coincides with earlier rumors that the phone will be launched in May 2024.


The rendering of the Sony Xperia 1 VI reveals a significant departure from the company’s traditional design decisions. There is a particular departure from the 4K screen and the ultra-long 21:9 aspect ratio. This change is likely a strategic move to make the Xperia line more competitive in the market. However, the company will retain the overall aesthetics of the phone. With its new design and features, the Xperia 1 VI is expected to be an exciting addition to Sony’s lineup.
