According to recent rumors circulating on Weibo and originating from English-speaking sources, Sony is speculated to be working on mid-range segment launches. This includes much in the news Sony Xperia 1 VI and another new Xperia model, potentially dubbed and frequently rumored as the Xperia ACE IV. The rumored device is said to feature a 5.8-inch display with a unique 21:9 aspect ratio and a notch design.
Given Sony’s track record of offering distinctive aspect ratios in its Xperia lineup, the presence of a 21:9 display adds credibility to these rumors. Notably, Sony remains one of the few manufacturers to adopt this aspect ratio.
The inclusion of a notch design typically aligns with devices in the mid-range or entry-level segments, suggesting that the Xperia ACE IV may target this market demographic.
However, it’s worth considering that the 5.8-inch display size doesn’t significantly deviate from the 6.1-inch screens found in the Xperia 10 series. This similarity raises questions about how Sony plans to differentiate between its various models, especially if both the Xperia ACE IV and the Xperia 10 VI are released in the coming days.
