The FCC has certified an upcoming Sony smartphone and it seems to be the Xperia 5 IV which has been rumored for a while. The device listing confirms a few key specs including the phone’s dimensions – it’s 155.74mm tall and 67.1mm wide.
Compact phone lovers will rejoice as that’s a tad shorter and narrower than last year’s Xperia 5 III which stood at 157mm and 68mm respectively. The screen diagonal on the Xperia 5 IV is listed at 153.5mm which is exactly 6.04-inches – a tad shorter than the Xperia 5 III’s 6.1-inch panel.
In addition, Xperia 5 IV will feature a USB-C connector for charging and data transfers as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack. The listings also confirm NFC connectivity and wireless charging – something not seen on the previous three Xperia 5 models.
In addition, the Xperia 5 IV will get Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and support for RFID smart cards which are widely used in Japan. That’s all the info we have for now but we should expect more details to emerge in the coming weeks.
Past rumors suggest Xperia 5 IV will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. It’s expected to recycle the Xperia 5 III’s camera setup – meaning a 12 MP (IMX557) main sensor, a 12MP IMX663 telephoto module and a 12MP (IMX363) ultrawide snapper.
