Sony’s Xperia series has traditionally adhered to a standard naming convention, with models like “Xperia 1 VI,” “Xperia 5 VI,” and “Xperia 10 VI.” However, recent discussions suggest a potential departure from this established naming pattern this year, marking the first significant change in several years.
Although the model names are still tentative, details have emerged regarding the memory and storage configurations for these models or their equivalents in the upcoming generation. Changes in memory and storage capacities can have a significant impact on users seeking specific performance and storage options in their smartphones.
The Xperia 10 VI is expected to feature 6GB/8GB of memory and storage options ranging from 128GB to 256 GB. The Xperia 1 VI is anticipated to come with 12GB/16GB of RAM and storage capacities ranging from 256GB to an impressive 1TB. Meanwhile, the Xperia 5 VI might offer 8GB/12GB of RAM and storage options spanning from 256GB to 512 GB.
Comparing this to the current Xperia V series, we observe:
- Xperia 1 V: 12GB/256GB and 16GB/1TB
- Xperia 5 V: 8GB/128GB and 12GB/512GB (256GB exclusively for China and Hong Kong)
- Xperia 10 V: 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB (8GB exclusively for China and Hong Kong)
In strict terms, the number of memory and storage variations per model may not see an increase in the upcoming “Xperia VI” series. However, there is a significant enhancement in the maximum memory and storage capacities for each model in the next generation.
The potential increase in maximum memory and storage capacities for the Xperia VI series suggests a focus on providing users with more choices for high performance and expanded storage space, addressing a wider range of user preferences.
The prospect of introducing a 12GB version for the Xperia 5 series is especially delightful, especially for users who have encountered memory shortages with this line. If this upgrade materializes, it has the potential to resolve past limitations and elevate the overall performance and multitasking capabilities of the Xperia 5 series. The expanded memory capacity is likely to contribute to a smoother and more responsive user experience, making the Xperia 5 a more appealing choice for users seeking enhanced performance from their smartphones.
While the information is currently at the rumor level, if confirmed, it presents intriguing possibilities for Sony’s Xperia VI series, promising enhanced memory and storage options for prospective users.
