The Xperia 1 VI maintains the series' minimalist design with a boxy appearance, flat edges and a flat back. The back features a pill-shaped camera island, reminiscent of the previous model. The biggest innovation in the design is given by the display, now in a more conventional 19.5:9 aspect ratio, rather than the cinematic 21:9.

Sony has chosen to abandon the 4K OLED display in favor of a 6,5-inch FHD+ panel (1080 x 2340 pixels). The phone still uses an OLED panel with HDR certification, full DCI-P3 and X1 color gamut coverage for mobile devices. It offers a refresh rate from 1 to 120Hz, a 240Hz touch sampling rate, and 240Hz motion blur reduction. The display, together with the back, is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2.

Under the hood, the Xperia 1 VI comes with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage.
