Many expected to see the Sony Xperia 5 IV launch back in May, when the Xperia 1 IV launched, but that wasn’t the case. However, now the Japanese manufacturer has announced an event to launch a new Xperia device next week, it’s almost certainly the Sony Xperia 5 IV. Sony’s Xperia 5 series is known for being the company’s compact flagship line, being considerably smaller than the Xperia 1 range. 

The launch event will be held on September 1, at 3am ET / 8am BST, and will be live-streamed on the official Sony Xperia YouTube channel, so we can all tune-in.
