Sony has just announced the Xperia 1 VI (Pronounced Mark 6), the company's latest flagship smartphone at an online event, as expected. It features a 6.5-inch FHD+ LPTO display with a 1-120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch scan rate and 19.5:9 aspect ratio compared to the 4K 21 aspect ratio display: 9.

The phone is powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC with 12GB RAM and has vapor chamber cooling.

New true optical zoom

The Xperia 1 VI retains the 52MP rear camera with Exmor T lens, Zeiss optics and 24mm to 48mm focal length. It also has a 12MP 16mm ultra-wide-angle camera and the new 12MP periscope telephoto camera has a focal length of 85mm to 170mm for up to 7x zoom. There is telemacro support with a maximum magnification of approximately 2x and a minimum focusing distance of 4cm, even without a dedicated macro lens.

The rear camera integrates artificial intelligence technology to recognize the human skeleton, enabling accurate AF tracking even in difficult shooting scenarios due to possible obstacles obscuring the subject's visibility, the company said.

The phone has Full-Stage stereo speakers, 360 Reality Audio from Sony and also includes Dolby Atmos sound tuned in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment. It is IP65 and IP68 rated for dust and water resistance.

It has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection on the front and Gorilla Glass Victus protection on the back. The phone still features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and packs a 5000mAh battery with support for fast charging and Qi wireless charging.
