Sony has scheduled an Xperia product launch event for September 1. The company is expected to launch the new Xperia 5 IV flagship smartphone at the event.
The Sony Xperia launch event will be held on September 1 at 4PM JST (12:30pm IST). It will be live-streamed on the company’s official YouTube page. The company has not officially revealed any other information relating to the upcoming handset.

Sony Xperia 5 IV Details
The Sony Xperia 5 IV will be the successor to the Xperia 5 III, which debuted back in April 2021. The phone is expected to launch with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and a triple camera setup. It is expected to feature the same camera setup as its predecessor the Xperia 5 III. Additionally, it may feature a 120Hz OLED display, IP68 water resistance, and dual stereo speakers.
A recent Federal Communications Commission (FCC) listing suggested that the Xperia 5 IV’s display will measure 155.74mm in height and 67.1mm in width, whereas the diagonal length could be 153.5mm. These measurements suggest that this smartphone may feature a 6.04-inch display. Moreover, the phone will come with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port.
Earlier this year, Sony Xperia Ace III was launched. It is available in a single 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant which is priced at JPY 34,408 (approx Rs 20,500). Sony has launched the smartphone in four colour options — Black, Blue, Brick Orange, and Grey. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 480 SoC with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of UFS storage. .
