Earlier this May, Sony introduced the Sony Xperia 1 V smartphone. Now, a leaked video ad shared by a Redditor (@JB2unique) showcases the upcoming Xperia 5 V with an intriguing change.
Dual Rear Camera System
The Xperia 5 V is departing from the usual triple camera setup found in previous models. Instead, it features a dual rear camera system. This change suggests the possibility of a more affordable price compared to its predecessors. The camera housing also includes the ZEISS T symbol, indicating the inclusion of the company’s anti-glare coating.
Front Design and Display
The leaked video provides a glimpse of the front of the phone. Notable features include:
- Noticeable bezels at the top and bottom
- 21:9 aspect ratio display
- Notchless screen
- Top bezel housing the selfie camera instead of a punch-hole cutout
Aside from the camera and design details, the video reveals several other features:
- 3.5mm port for audio
- Metal-looking frame
- Color options in black, white, and blue/gray
- Fingerprint sensor functionality integrated into the power button
- Dedicated camera shutter button
Expected Launch Date
While the exact launch and availability dates are yet to be confirmed, Sony typically releases its Xperia 5 models around September or October each year. However, the early video leak suggests that the Xperia 5 V might hit the market sooner than expected.
