Sony has now officially announced the launch date of its next flagship smartphone, the Xperia 1 VI. The Xperia 1 V's successor is geared to be a zoom-oriented device and is expected to be joined by the mid-range Xperia 10 VI when it debuts next week.

Sony's upcoming smartphones, the Xperia 1 VI and Xperia 10 VI, recently leaked online. The company has now come out to effectively confirm its launch plans for both devices as well.

Taking to the official Sony Xperia Twitter page, Sony has now confirmed a May 15 global launch event for the new Xperia phones. The embedded video uses the tagline "Zoom into wonder, next ONE is coming," all but confirming the imminent launch of the Xperia 1 VI. If history is any indication, the flagship Xperia 1 VI will be joined by the mid-range Xperia 10 VI.

As revealed by prior leaks and now corroborated by the launch tagline, the Xperia 1 VI will arrive with significant camera upgrades over last year's Xperia 1 V—particularly in the zoom department. The flagship is tipped to deliver a 2x in-sensor zoom on its main camera, while also extending the zoom range of its telephoto lens from the Xperia 1 V's (buy on Amazon) 5.2x to a 7x zoom from an equivalent 170 mm focal length.
