Yes, you’ve read that right.  In light of MWC 2020 being called off, looks like Sony just went ahead with their announcement anyway, and I do think it’s a cool name, like in a camera.

The Xperia 1 II (read as Xperia 1 Mark 2) has a 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio. While it’s no 120Hz display, there’s motion blur reduction. They claim that it matches a 90Hz display by “adjusting individual frames based on what’s on screen.”

Under the hood is a Snapdragon 865 with a 5G modem that works on sub6 networks. It’s got 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The device IP65/IP68 certified for water and dust protection, and packs a 4,000mAh battery with support for wireless charging as well. Oh, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack too.

For optics, Xperia 1 II uses a triple camera setup that’s now placed on the left side. It uses a 12MP main (f/1.7), 12MP ultrawide (f/2.2), and 12MP telephoto (f/2.4) shooter. It also uses a 3D iTOF sensor which aids in focusing speed. Up front is an 8MP snapper.

The phone also features Eye AF that now works for animals, and is capable of doing AF tracking with 20fps bursts.

Sony has yet to announced the pricing for its newest flagship.
