The star of the show is the flagship Xperia 1 IV which should bring a familiar design language inspired by the Xperia 1 III alongside a new chipset - Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and a 6.5-inch 4K 120Hz OLED screen. You can actually catch a glimpse at the phone’s design at the 0:32 point in the event trailer.

Sony usually brings along a new Xperia 10 phone alongside its flagship 1 series so we could also expect the Xperia 10 IV at the event. That phone is also expected to look a lot like its predecessor with a 6-inch OLED screen and triple camera setup around the back. We've also seen rumors about the Xperia 5 IV which will also get a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

We’ll have all the details on the new phones on our homepage after the event concludes.
