Sony has declared its first 5G smartphone – The Xperia 1 II — which, for the curious and confused, is called ‘Xperia One, Mark Two’.
“Nobody understands the entertainment experience better than Sony,” stated prez of mobile communications, Mitsuya Kishida, claiming the corporation is “uniquely positioned” in the generation of 5G cellular technology to offer its target customers an “enriched” experience because of Sony’s extensive content portfolio.
As ever with Sony — a significant b2b supplier of picture sensors to other smartphone manufacturers — it’s made the camera an enormous focus for the new Android 10 flagship, which has a 6.5in 21:9 “CinemaWide” 4K HDR OLED display and is powered by a Qualcomm 865 Snapdragon chip with 8GB of RAM.
Around the back, the Xperia 1II sports three lenses which offer a selection of focal lengths (16mm, 24mm, and 70mm) for capturing several types of photos — from tremendous wide-angle to portraits.
All three rear lenses have a 12MP sensor, while around the front, there’s an 8MP lens. Sony is also utilizing Zeiss optics for the first time in a smartphone, increasing a long-operating partnership to a brand new device type.
Another photo-friendly feature is real-time eye autofocus. Sony proved this by displaying it working on a video of a cat playing with a toy.
Sony’s mobile head was making the announcements at a digital press conference screened through YouTube after the corporate became one of many first big firms to withdraw from the Mobile World Congress tradeshow.
