Xperia 1 VI tipped to be loaded with latest Exmor T for mobile! Xperia 1 VI price likely to be increased by 20%


Share post:

The upcoming flagship model from Sony in 2024, potentially titled “Xperia 1 VI (Mark 6),” is rumored to bring a substantial camera upgrade. Leaked information on Weibo suggests that all three rear cameras will boast Sony’s latest Exmor T for mobile, particularly the advanced 48MP sensor.

Camera specifications leaked strongly indicate that the upcoming model will likely incorporate Sony’s latest mobile sensor, known as the “Exmor T for mobile,” in all three rear (standard, ultra-wide-angle, and telephoto) cameras. This detail was mentioned in a comment on a recent Weibo post, discussing leaked information that seems to outline the camera specifications for the Xperia 1 VI.

According to the leaks, this significant enhancement in camera technology may result in an unavoidable price increase of at least 10%. The rationale behind this expected rise lies in the higher production costs associated with incorporating these state-of-the-art sensors into every aspect of the camera system.

As you’re aware, in the Xperia 1 V from the previous year, the standard (wide-angle) camera underwent a significant redesign, while the other two camera sensors saw minimal changes.

The Weibo comment also points out that the Xperia 1 V from the previous year witnessed a 10% increase in its domestic price compared to the Xperia 1 IV. If the leaked details hold, it implies a cumulative 20-30% uptick in the pricing of the Xperia 1 series over recent years, highlighting the financial impact of integrating cutting-edge camera features.

The specific cost of the camera module for Xperia smartphones is not disclosed. Nevertheless, it’s clear that if the Xperia 1 VI does come equipped with the latest 48MP Exmor-T sensor, it represents a considerable advancement from previous models. The anticipated Xperia 1 VI price, primarily associated with integrating this advanced sensor, is likely to be a substantial factor.

It’s essential to note that these details are based on leaked information, and a more comprehensive understanding of the Xperia 1 VI’s specifications and pricing is expected with the official announcement from Sony, anticipated around spring.

Xperia 1 VI Camera Specs Leaks

In the Xperia 1 V, the Exmor T for mobile sensor, previously exclusive to the standard camera, has been extended to include both the ultra-wide-angle and telephoto camera sensors. This enhancement ensures that all three cameras now incorporate Exmor T for mobile sensors.

Furthermore, the pixel count of sensors, apart from the main Exmor T for mobile sensors, has been elevated from 12MP to 48MP, hinting at the possibility that the telephoto and ultra-wide-angle sensors share similar specifications.

As of now, it remains uncertain whether these two sensors will adopt the same “two-layer transistor pixel stack type” as the main sensor. Nevertheless, the integration of Exmor T for mobile sensors in the telephoto and ultra-wide-angle cameras, along with the increased pixel count to 48MP, signifies noteworthy advancements.

However, there are reservations concerning the sensor “size.” The telephoto camera’s size has increased from 1/3.5 inch to 1/2.7 inch, while the standard camera’s sensor has slightly reduced from 1/1.35 inch to 1/1.4 inch.

Regarding the telephoto camera, the focal length range has expanded from 85-125mm on the Xperia 1 V to 70-135mm. The zoom magnification has increased from 3.5x to 2.9x and from 5.2x to 5.6x, promising a substantial improvement in zoom capabilities.
