(Pocket-lint) – We previously reported that Sony’s upcoming flagship could be launching in May this year, but little is known about the device so far.

The leaked renders reveal Sony’s typical squared-off design language is making its way to the next generation.
The front of the device features a familiar flat-edged display and a small hole-punch selfie camera to the left of the earpiece.
Around the back, we see an elongated vertical camera array, again, similar to the array seen on the Xperia 1 III.
There is no longer a dedicated Google Assistant button, which was found on its predecessor.
It is hinted that we’ll see at least two colourways for the Xperia 1 IV, including black and matte green.
GizNext suggests the display will be 6.5 inches and that the camera array will have a telephoto lens, but other details are unknown.
While we don’t have many details regarding the hardware inside, previous leaks have suggested a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and 45W fast charging. It’s looking to be an exciting release for Sony fans.
