The Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III were both announced in April last year, but the Xperia 1 IV showed up solo in May. The timing as clever as Apple is not expected to launch a successor to the iPhone 13 mini, so there will be a void to fill. As for what the Xperia 5 IV will bring to the table, we don’t have to look far from the Xperia 1 IV to get an idea. That’s because the Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III largely had the same core specs, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipsets, 4500mAh batteries, 120Hz OLED displays, Gorilla Glass 6 backs, IP68 rating, 5G, and headphone jacks.
There will be a tonne of new smartphone announcements during the first week of September. On September 6, Huawei will host a presentation to launch its premium Mate 50 line, and on September 7, Apple will host its Far Out event to unveil the iPhone 14 family. On September 1, Sony has scheduled an event where it is likely to introduce the Xperia 5 IV. In order for us to mark our calendars for the upcoming Xperia event, Sony has posted a little video to YouTube. While the clip doesn’t offer any specifics, it uses phrases like “Be innovative” and “Go compact,” so it’s easy to assume that the Japanese giant is alluding to the Xperia 5 IV.
According to rumors, the Xperia 5 IV will likely have a slightly smaller 6.04-inch screen, something that fans of the best compact phones will appreciate. The phone is expected to retain its predecessor’s camera setup of a 12MP main sensor, 12MP telephoto unit, and 12MP ultrawide module. Unlike the previous Xperia 5 handsets, the new model is expected to offer NFC connectivity and wireless charging. It will likely be armed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and 12GB of RAM.
The biggest differentiator between them was the screen size and resolution – Xperia 1 III offered a 6.5-inch 4K HDR display, while the Xperia 5 III had a 6.1-inch FHD+ screen. And, of course, the Xperia 5 III was also lighter. Other than that, the former had a quad camera setup and 12GB of RAM, whereas the latter had three cameras and 8GB of RAM. The Xperia 5 III launched with a price of $1,000, and the Xperia 1 III retailed for $1,300.
At $1,599, the Xperia 1 IV is more expensive than its predecessor, but apparently, Sony has implemented some cost-cutting measures to prevent Xperia 5 IV’s price from ballooning, although it’s not clear where the company cut corners.
