Sony has been actively involved in the smartphone market, offering three lineups: Xperia 1, 10, and 5. Sony refreshes the series with new models yearly.

Now, it seems like Sony is preparing for the next models in the series.

Before we jump to the latest news, let’s recall what happened in the past week. There was a rumor circulating online that Sony is saying farewell to the Xperia 5 series. This news caused distress among fans of the lineup. Although there was no official confirmation, fans were confused whether to believe this news or not. Finally, the latest news suggests that this rumor may be unfounded and Sony may launch the Xperia 5 VI.

Gizchina News of the week

Photos of protective cases for unreleased Sony Xperia devices were posted by a user on Weibo. One of these devices appears to be the Xperia 5 VI. The protective cover reveals that Sony is going to stick with two camera sensors just like with the previous model. However, a significant change is the absence of the cutout for the camera shutter button. Perhaps Sony is bidding farewell to the camera shutter button with this model. Additionally, the display’s aspect ratio appears to have shifted from the iconic 21:9 to 19.5:9.

It’s not just the Xperia 5 VI that had its protective cover revealed. There is also the Xperia 1 VI. It seems to have no design differences except the aspect ratio being changed to a wider one. The decision to go with a traditional aspect ratio might be to get the acceptance of a wider range of customers. Since only Sony was working with a 21:9 aspect ratio, their phones looked different from all others in the market.

    Don’t tell me, this “rumour” was from “someone close to the matter” or “a source”.

    Neither is in any way reliable – yet you still run with this crap every single time. This is why no one pays much attention to “tech journalists”.
