Sony Xperia 1 V Pricing Information Leak Reveals a Surprising Detail
Sony’s latest flagship phone, the Xperia 1 V, is set to launch in Japan on May 11th, and it’s expected to come with a hefty price tag. While previous leaks have suggested that the phone will be an upgrade over its predecessor, the Xperia 1 IV, a new pricing leak has confirmed that it will cost CNY¥8,000 in China, putting it around $1,160 / RM5,140.
While this is still significantly more expensive than most current flagships, it’s a 6% price cut from the Xperia 1 IV, which launched with a price tag of $1,599. This lower price point might be an effort to keep up with the competition in China, where Sony Xperias are popular.
Unfortunately, this price cut might not extend to global markets, and it’s highly likely that the Xperia 1 V will match the price tag of its predecessor in other regions. However, the phone is expected to come with significant upgrades, such as a next-gen low-noise sensor, which may justify the high price tag.
While we’ll have to wait until the official unveiling to get concrete details, the Xperia 1 V is expected to be a top-of-the-line flagship device, and fans of the Xperia series will likely be eager to get their hands on it. The phone is set to bring significant enhancements over the previous iteration, and it’s sure to make a splash in the smartphone market.
Pokdepinion: I am about pretty sure it will be a little higher than that when it officially arrives in Malaysia. I’m sure it will be a solid device but the high price point will be the one to make it rather hard to sell well.
