Sony Xperia 5 V launch event scheduled for September 1

Sony has scheduled its Xperia product launch event on September 1 in which the company is expected to launch the new Xperia 5 V flagship smartphone. The phone surfaced in a promo video last month revealing the design and some of the specifications of the phone.

This showed dual rear cameras with ZEISS T* symbol, indicating the inclusion of the company’s anti-glare coating. It also showed 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.

It also revealed a 3.5mm port, a metal frame, and color options in black, white, and blue/gray. The power button embeds the fingerprint sensor, and the phone retains the dedicated camera shutter button.

The phone said to get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, 16GB / 12GB RAM options version, and support for 33W fast charging.

How to watch the launch event?

The Sony Xperia launch event on September 1st will start at 4PM JST (12:30 PM IST), and the company is live-streaming the event, as usual.

We should know the complete specifications when the phones go official in a week.
