The Sony Xperia 1 VI is expected to make its debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February 2024, according to a recent rumor. This would mark an earlier release compared to its predecessor, the Xperia 1 V, which was launched in late July.
If this rumor holds true, the Xperia 1 VI will arrive in time to compete with other flagship phones featuring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, such as the Galaxy S24 Ultra and Xiaomi 14 Pro.
One notable feature of the Xperia 1 VI, as per the rumor, is its 6x zoom camera equipped with a large sensor. This camera is expected to offer approximately 140mm zoom capability, surpassing the current 125mm (5x) zoom offerings in the market. Additionally, Sony’s Clear Image Zoom technology is said to be integrated into this camera.
In line with Sony’s commitment to sustainability, the Xperia 1 VI is rumored to ship in eco-friendly packaging, featuring recycled materials and omitting accessories.
Please keep in mind that these details are based on rumors, and official specifications and features may vary when Sony officially announces the Xperia 1 VI at MWC 2024.
