Sony has just launched the Xperia 1 V and Xperia 10 V, both of which should be available next month. However, according to a new report from the Land of the Rising Sun, the Japanese company may have another mid-range Android phone up its sleeve that offers better specs than the current mid-range Xperia: the so-called Sony Xperia 7!
- Sony is reportedly working on another mid-range phone in 2023.
- The device is said to be the Sony Xperia 7.
- It could launch alongside the Xperia 5 V in September.
- The Sony Xperia 7 is said to be better equipped than the Xperia 10 V.
The big surprise candidate: the Sony Xperia 7
According to a relatively unknown user on the Chinese network Sina Weibo, the thesis of “SumahoDigest” has now been picked up that Sony will release another mid-range smartphone this year and with it a new series that will start the Sony Xperia 7. It is the identical Xperia device that was previously known as the Sony Xperia Ace 4. The rumored identity follows Sony’s current naming convention: the Xperia 1 is the premium line, followed by the standard flagship Xperia 5 and the mid-range Xperia 10 device.
Sony Xperia 7: specifications and release
The Sony Xperia 7 first appeared in the Bluetooth certifications alongside another Xperia smartphone. The first device is said to feature an unknown MediaTek chipset, which could be one of the newer Dimensity 8000 or 9000 series mobile processors. The Sony Xperia 10 V was launched last week with an outdated Snapdragon 695 and a 60 Hz display.
Aside from the obviously better and faster chipset for the Sony Xperia 7, there aren’t any other solid details that have been revealed yet. Expect the unannounced Xperia device to have a wider display with larger dimensions, moving away from the compact form factor of the Sony Xperia 5V and Xperia 10V.
In terms of launch and pricing, Sony could unveil the Xperia 7 alongside the recently leaked Xperia 5 V, which is due out in September this year. The price will obviously be higher than that of the Xperia 10 V, which is to be sold from June 1, 2023 for 449 euros, and well below the 1,000 euro mark of the Xperia 5 IV (test).
