Xperia 1 II

Sony has updated its Xperia lineup of smartphones with the introduction of the Sony Xperia 1 II in its flagship range while the Xperia 10 II updates the Xperia 10 and the Xperia L4 brings another budget-friendly option to the Xperia camera phone collection. 

Sony’s New Flagship Xperia 1 II

The Sony Xperia 1 II utilises technology developed for the Sony Alpha interchangeable lens camera line up and as a result, features 20 frames per second (fps) AF/AE tracking on its rear, triple-camera set-up (16mm/24mm/70mm) which features ZEISS optics with T* (T-Star) anti-reflective coating and real-time autofocus (AF). 

The Dual photodiode sensor along with an auto-focus system that covers approximately 70 per cent of the sensor, 3D iToF sensor and a new large 1/1.7" Exmor RS sensor make the Sony Xperia 1 II 1.5x more sensitive to light than the Xperia 10 which means AF is faster and more accurate when light levels drop.

Video can now be captured at 2K 120fps and thanks to the Cinematography Pro mode, users can access Touch AF, Metered Manual controls for setting exposure, Level meter and improved white balance settings. The Intelligent wind filter technology from Sony also reduces noise and wind interference.

Other features include 5G connectivity, a 6.5" 4K HDR OLED display, water/dust resistance and a 4,000mAh battery. 

Availability - The Xperia 1 II will be available in black or purple in Europe, shipping with Android 10 from late Spring 2020.
