There is a continuous design language that Sony’s Xperia smartphones have followed over the years and the upcoming Xperia 1 VI will likely continue this trend. However, there are slight changes imminent with the newcomer’s design. The Xperia 1 VI will surely make its debut in May, and it might leave behind two of its predecessors’ trademark characteristics.

Sony Xperia 1 VI going wider with a new display ratio and lower resolution

To start with, the Xperia 1 VI will not have a 4K display which has always been a hallmark of Sony’s smartphones. Sony pioneered the introduction of 4K screens in mobile devices. But, according to rivals who prefer lower resolutions, 4K doesn’t have any significant effect on user experience. So, the company could allegedly drop this feature. This implies that there would be other areas concerning how well the phone performs and what it does.

Also, the Weibo leak claims that the Xperia 1 VI will not follow the tall cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio as found in previous Xperia models. Instead, it will utilize a 19.5:9 one. As seen from concept renders, this adjustment will make it shorter and wider than its predecessors. Although Sony’s aspect ratio was unique at 21:9, it might have failed to resonate with consumers thus necessitating alternative approaches by makers.

These rumored modifications are pointing to potential strategic changes that may be happening with Sony’s smartphones, aligning them with market trends and consumer preferences. However, it is important to note here that these are just rumors until Sony confirms them officially. But while the suggested decisions might have some logical reasoning behind them, their accuracy is yet to be established.

More leaks abound leaving fans excited about the upcoming Xperia lineup

Leaks in recent times have also disclosed RAM configurations of Sony’s soon-to-be-released Xperia 1 VI. As well as the Xperia 5 VI, and Xperia 10 VI. Further raising expectations for Sony’s imminent releases. Consequently, as fans anticipate more information and official statements from Sony, the exiting of the Xperia 1 VI from the realm of 4k display and tall aspect ratio represents an interesting turn of events.
