(Pocket-lint) - We previously reported that Sony's upcoming flagship could be launching in May this year, but little is known about the device so far.

Now though, the notorious OnLeaks in partnership with GizNext, bring us a detailed look at the upcoming Sony Xperia 1 IV.


The leaked renders reveal Sony's typical squared-off design language is making its way to the next generation.

The front of the device features a familiar flat-edged display and a small hole-punch selfie camera to the left of the earpiece.

Around the back, we see an elongated vertical camera array, again, similar to the array seen on the Xperia 1 III.

In terms of connectivity, we can see a USB-C port, SIM tray (presumably with MicroSD card support) and the often neglected headphone socket.

There is no longer a dedicated Google Assistant button, which was found on its predecessor.

It is hinted that we'll see at least two colourways for the Xperia 1 IV, including black and matte green.

GizNext suggests the display will be 6.5 inches and that the camera array will have a telephoto lens, but other details are unknown.

While we don't have many details regarding the hardware inside, previous leaks have suggested a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and 45W fast charging. It's looking to be an exciting release for Sony fans.
