Sony Xperia 5 V promotional video surfaces ahead of launch

Earlier this May, Sony introduced the Sony Xperia 1 V smartphone. Now, according to a leaked video ad shared by a Redditor (@JB2unique), the upcoming Xperia 5 V is showcased with a dual rear camera system, departing from the usual triple camera setup, with a tag “New Phone, New Me”.

This change suggests the possibility of a more affordable price compared to previous models. The camera housing also features the ZEISS T symbol, indicating the inclusion of the company’s anti-glare coating.

The leaked video provides a glimpse of the front of the phone, revealing noticeable bezels at the top and bottom, a 21:9 aspect ratio display, and a notchless screen. The top bezel houses the selfie camera instead of a punch-hole cutout.

Other features spotted in the video include a 3.5mm port, a metal-looking frame, and color options in black, white, and blue/gray. The power button retains its fingerprint sensor functionality, and the dedicated camera shutter button remains present.

While the exact launch and availability dates are yet to be confirmed, Sony typically releases its Xperia 5 models around September or October each year. However, this early video leak suggests that the Xperia 5 V might hit the market sooner than expected.
