The next iteration of Sony’s compact smartphone line, the Xperia 5 V, has allegedly been put through the Geekbench benchmark test (via a post on Weibo) which revealed some of the phone’s specs.
The most interesting is probably the 16GB of RAM that the phone will sport on at least one variant of the device if the Geekbench test is legit. There have been other phones, such as the OnePlus 11, that offer a variant carrying 16GB of memory.
If you recall, the compact version of Sony’s Xperia handsets usually are powered by the same chipset, have the same memory and storage, and sport the same camera array as found on the latest full-sized flagship Xperia phone. The Kalama motherboard listed on the Geekbench test is also found on the Samsung Galaxy S23 line and the Xiaomi Mi 13 Pro. So in other words, we can expect the Xperia 5 V to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Android 13 will be pre-installed
The Geekbench test also revealed the model number of the Sony 5 V which will be XQ-DQ72. Considering that the Xperia 5 IV was released last September, we still have quite a few months to go before Sony unveils the Xperia 5 V. As a result, we could see many more leaks and tips for the phone that might help us flesh out the device. We’d be amiss if we didn’t mention that the phone had a single-core score of 1439 and a multi-core score of 5071 on Geekbench.
