Sony Xperia 1 V will have no camera bump, Geekbench scores looks sus

While we recieved news about the much anticipated premium flagship of Sony, the sources of which are too unreliable to take seriously at this moment

Several new Xperia 1 V rumors have surfaced, but it appears that only one of them is entirely trustworthy. According to reports, a potential Sony Xperia 1 V has once again been benchmarked on Geekbench, but despite the best efforts of some fans, the initial record seems to be kept from the general public.

The alleged Geekbench entry is for the “Sony XQ-DT72” model, which is assumed to be an Xperia 1 for 2023, according to SumahoDigest, a typically reliable source. 11,647 points is the OpenCL score for GPU testing, nearly doubling the previous score (Adreno 740 iGPU vs. Adreno 730 iGPU).

This particular benchmark leak seems rather suspect due to the apparent performance increase between the iGPU components of the Xperia 1 IV and Xperia 1 V, but another rumor from ZACKBUKS comes in a more trustworthy form.

The well-known Xperia leaker claims that LG Innotek’s “Optical Telephoto Zoom Module,” which has the dual benefits of offering 4x to 9x magnification and being so small as to eliminate the need for a camera bump, may be used by the Sony camera team. Moving away from Sony’s in-house camera expertise would be a shocking move.

Both the Xperia 1 III and the Xperia 1 IV took their time getting from China to the US and UK; the Xperia 1 IV launched in China in June and didn’t go on sale in the US until September (over two-and-a-half months).

However, a different insider claims that compared to the Xperia 1 V’s 2022 predecessor, Sony is already two months ahead of schedule in the testing phase.

Therefore, the launch could take place as early as April 2023. Hopefully, this means that the Sony Xperia 1 V will be available in the US, UK, and other nations by June for fans of the adored line outside of China.
