Sony Xperia 5 IV is in the works, according to one of the most accredited leakers on the Chinese social network Weibo. It will be a direct successor to the current Xperia 5 III, and will therefore position itself as a relatively compact top of the range.


According to sources, it will be equipped with the Plus variant of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, currently still unpublished but expected to announce in the second half of the year. The rest of the advances indicate a 6.1″ display, coated with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, and a slightly larger battery than the one implemented in the Xperia 5 III, which by reference was 4,500 mAh.

The camera hardware will instead remain unchanged. We therefore expect a triple unit in the traditional wide-angle / ultra-wide-angle / telephoto configuration, respectively with IMX557, IMX363 and IMX663 sensors, naturally all Sony, and all 12 MP. At this point, it is safe to assume that the aesthetics of the smartphone will also be very similar to what has already been seen in the current model.

An important detail to underline is that, if usually in Snapdragon chips the transition from the “smooth” model to the Plus model only implies an increase in operating frequencies, this year another key aspect will change: the manufacturer. The S8G1 is made by Samsung’s foundries at 4nm, while the Plus is expected to switch to TSMC. The “number” of nanometers should remain the same, but it is widely believed that TSMC’s process is more refined and ultimately superior to that of its South Korean competitor.
