The Sony Xperia 1 II Looks Like the Best Smartphone Camera Yet

On the front of the phone there's an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera, and Sony has yet to explain whether there are any significant improvements for front-facing shots.

Industry-leading autofocus camera technology offers up to 20 fps burst shooting with 60 times per second AF/AE calculations and Real-time Eye AF for humans and animals. There's also a 3D iToF sensor. This technology already allowed the original Sony Xperia 1 to split each pixel on the sensor two photodiodes, which would receive light from separate angles and essentially act as a phase-detect autofocus system. We couldn't get enough of Cinema Pro, an onboard film-making app that shoots 60fps in 4K and simulates Sony pro cameras. The company is also revealing a "super mid-range" phone today - more on that here. This consists of the main camera, ultra-wide camera, and telephoto camera, respectively.

We can use the Xperia 1's price as a judge of how much the Xperia 1 II will likely cost too. The 6.5-inch display has a 21:9 aspect ratio with a 3,840x1,644 resolution and motion blur reduction, which should provide for a smooth image (Sony says it's the equivalent of a 90Hz display).

Like the Xperia 1 II, the Xperia Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset and 8GB of RAM.

The Xperia 1 II packs in a decent 4000mAh battery that further supports 21W fast charging along with Qi wireless charging too. Sony has also added some enhancements to Android's multi-window view to better utilize the added vertical space when you use the phone in the regular orientation.

Texas vs. West Virginia
In the first meeting between these two teams, West Virginia dropped 97 points on Texas in a 97-59 victory in Morgantown. We tracked Bet Signals at Sports Insights at WVU -4.5 on Sunday night, then Texas at +5, then WVU -5 on Monday morning.

The Sony Xperia 10 II comes with a 6-inch display, matching the size of the Xperia 10. "Only Sony has such deep and well established relationships and we are bringing decades of experience to an end-to-end solution - from professional content creation to mobile communications technology in 5G".

It isn't clear where you'll be able to buy the Xperia 1 II in the United States, but when that information is available, I'll let you know.

Sony Xperia 1 II has been launched as the company's first 5G flagship.

"Whether or not you're a broadcast skilled who requires dynamic velocity or an on a regular basis consumer who needs enhanced leisure Xperia with 5G takes your cell expertise to the following degree", he stated. Its entry-level Sony Xperia L4 and the Sony Xperia Pro, a 5G-capable handset that will only see limited release around the world, make up the rest of the new range. But it makes flawless business sense for Zeiss to go for new partnership for making its optics available on more and more smartphones. While connected the Xperia Pro can be used as an external recorder and even stream video directly over the Internet. One such brand is Sony, which had recently unveiled Xperia L4, had now launched its flagship Xperia 1 II (proclaimed "Xperia One Mark two')".

Its triple camera array has been moved to the upper left corner on the back, leaving only the Sony logo in the middle and the Xperia one at the bottom. Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protects the phone on both face and rear, while a fingerprint sensor is positioned on the right-hand side of the phone. The battery is 4,000 mAh, supports 21W USB-PD charging, and 15W wireless charging.
