Sony is said to be planning to launch six Xperia smartphones in 2023, which could be equipped with Snapdragon processors.
As reported by Android Central, the Japanese tech giant is working on at least five new phones that are set to be released next year.
Of the new models, three will be premium and one will be an entry-level smartphone.
The flagship models are said to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is expected to be unveiled at Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon Summit 2022 next week, according to the report.
The models include Xperia 5 V, Xperia 1 V, Xperia PRO-II, Xperia 10 V and Xperia ACE IV.
The Xperia ACE IV is rumored to be the cost-effective model that features Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 processor.
According to PhoneArena, this device could be an alternative to the iPhone mini for Android enthusiasts. The report stated that the device is available in two versions: one targeting the Japanese market and the other likely to reach global markets as well.
Another report suggests that at least one of the Xperia smartphones could be without a side-mounted fingerprint sensor in favor of an in-display sensor.
The power button on previous Xperia models served as the fingerprint sensor and the power button.
On the whole, aside from making the best flagship phone, Sony is poised to take on cheaper Android alternatives with its batch of new products for 2023, Android Central reports.
