Sony Xperia 1 VI dimensions revealed, the phone will be a bit shorter and a bit wider

A couple of weeks ago we heard a rumor that Sony will drop the 4K display from the next Xperia 1 model – this would happen as the aspect ratio changes from 21:9 to 19.5:9 (which suggests that the vertical resolution will no longer be 3,840px). This would also entail a change in the phone’s dimensions and a new leak reveals the new values.

The Sony Xperia 1 VI will allegedly measure 162 x 74.4 x 8.45mm – that is 3mm shorter and 3mm (and a bit) wider than the Xperia 1 V, which is 165 x 71 x 8.3mm. The renders from last time show that Sony will stick with its traditional design with a top and bottom bezel, so the loss in vertical space doesn’t come at the cost of stereo speakers and a front facing camera that’s in the bezel rather than the screen.

Speaking of the screen, it will measure 149.6 x 69.4mm. That works out to 19.4:9 aspect ratio and 6.49” diagonal. Here’s how this compares with the Mark V screen:

As you can see, the display is losing a bit of space vertically (2mm) but becomes wider(by almost 5mm).

The Sony Xperia 1 VI is expected to be unveiled in May. A previous leak suggests that the phone will have an option with more RAM, 16GB, but the base will remain at 12GB. That leak also talks about the Xperia 5 VI (just 8GB) and Xperia 10 VI (6/8GB), but there’s no indication whether these two models will also be unveiled in May.

Thanks for the tip, Josip!
