    Sony Xperia 1 II product details

    The Sony Xperia 1 II, also called the "Xperia 1 Mark 2" is Sony's flagship for early 2020. Sony is putting a lot of effort into its cameras this year. On the back is a camera system consisting of four different cameras developed in collaboration with Zeiss. But Sony is also making itself heard on video capabilities, display and audio. The Xperia 1 II is clearly a multimedia phone.

    Breathtaking screen, but not perfect

    Before we start, the Xperia 1 II is a premium flagship with a corresponding price tag. It is sturdy but you get quite a lot of Sony techniques in return. And we need a moment to mention them all. So this story can be a bit long but as I said it is not our fault. We start with the screen. In full this is a CinemaWide 4K HDR OLED 6.5 inch screen. This slightly different 21:9 ratio was introduced with the first Xperia 1 and is, according to Sony, ideal for watching movies in cinemas. 6.5 inches is big enough to watch for a long time, 4K resolution makes images razor-sharp and OLED ensures crisp, clear images. The panel works on the basis of 10-bit, which allows more color tones to be displayed and thus shows colorfast images. Sony throws its own professional color reproduction 'CineAlta' and BRAVIA HDR master technology over this for a professional result. Funny, but does this make up for the screen as well? From numerous reviews that we have reviewed, it does. Conclusions like "breathtaking" and "great" were frequent. Unfortunately, the screen does not have a high refresh rate, which is lacking in this price range.

    Cinema-worthy cameras

    On the back of the Xperia 1 II we find three lenses, just like last year. All three have a 12MP sensor, although the size differs. The main camera has an extra large 1/1.7 inch sensor with f/1.7 lens for extra light. There is an ultra-wide-angle camera with f/2.2 lens and a 124° angle of view intended for spacious landscapes and/or groups. And finally, there is an f/2.4 lens with 70mm focal length for zoom. Focusing is the strongest camera characteristics of the Xperia 1 II. Thanks to the built-in 3D ToF sensor, it not only does this happen in 0.03 seconds, it can also hold out for a long time. It is ideal for capturing moving subjects and filming in focus. The Xperia 1 II checks whether it detects an eye and focuses on it. This eye-autofocus works on both people and animals and in tricky situations, such as when someone walks by or when you blink. Video can be shot in up to 4K, at 24 fps and in 21:9. That corresponds to what you see in the biscope. And the sound is also improved by automatically filtering out wind noise. All Sony-techniques coming from Alpha cameras and Handycam camcorders.

    Main Sony Xperia 1 II specifications

    • Razor-sharp 4K OLED screen with HDR display and high color fidelity
    • 12+12+12MP camera with high-speed focusing, 4K video and cinema sound recording
    • 3,5mm headphone port for your own headset
    • Snapdragon 865 with 5G support is fast enough to play games with
    • 4000 mAh large battery with fast and wireless charging
    • Waterproof glass body (IP65/68 reated)

    For the audiophile

    Sony wouldn't be Sony if audio hadn't been thought of as well. You just find an audio jack connection on the '1 Mark 2' so you can plug in your own favorite headphones. New is that the signal noise is reduced to below 20 dB. There is support for many high-res audio codecs and built-in stereo speakers for when you don't want to have them on your ear. Gaming is also possible thanks to the built-in Snapdragon 865. You can even use your PlayStation's DualShock 4 controller to play Android games. Furthermore, the Xperia 1 II 5G Internet, wireless charging, a 4000mAh battery with fast charging and a waterproof IP65/68 housing of double-sided Gorilla Glass 6. Virtually nothing has failed to make the Xperia 1 II shine. And unfortunately, this is reflected in the price.

    Sony Xperia 1 II in the news

    ts Sony Xperia 10 Ii

    Sony releases three new Xperia phones; Xperia 1 II, 10 II and Xperia Pro

    Phone news ·

    The MWC may have been cancelled, but Sony is still coming up with some new Xperia phones. Say hello to Xperia 1 II, Xperia 10 II and the all-new Xperia Pro. In other words: the new flagship, the affordable middle class and Sony's new showcase phone.

    The Sony Xperia 1 II is a further development of the existing Xperia 1. Though you wouldn't say that right away because of the new look. The aircraft has flat sides of metal, Gorilla Glass 6 on both sides but most striking is the Zeiss branding. Sony puts its collaboration with the German lens manufacturer in a higher gear.

    Sony Xperia 1 II

    As usual, Sony and the Xperia 1 II is all about multimedia. So Sony focuses on the camera, the monitor and audio. The Alpha team was responsible for that first point; known for Sony's high-end system cameras. The Xperia 1 II has, just like those expensive cameras, Eye Autofocus which focuses 60x per second on an eye (human or animal). More than enough to always shoot a sharp picture of someone. Focusing in the dark is also possible thanks to the additional 3D iToF (indirect Time-of-Flight) sensor. It measures the distance between the phone and the subject and then focuses quickly. A 50% larger 1/1.7" Exmor RS sensor with larger pixels provides improved light sensitivity.

    Four Alpha cameras

    The camera system on the Sony Xperia 1 II consists of a total of 4 cameras; a 12 megapixel 24mm f/1.7 main lens, 12 megapixel 16mm f/2.2 wide-angle lens, a 12 megapixel 70mm f/2.4 telephoto lens and the aforementioned 3D iToF depth camera. The camera interface now fits in better with what you are used to on the Sony Alpha cameras, so Sony also cleverly uses the wider 21:9 CinemaWide screen. It measures 6.5 inches, has a 4K resolution and does HDR. It's an OLED panel so splashing colours are guaranteed.

    DSEE Ultimate

    In the audio field there is 360 Reality Audio present; Sony's own object based spatial audio technology. Full-featured stereo speakers sit at the front, there is just a 3.5mm audio jack to plug in your own favorite headphones and there is support for a variety of audio codecs to listen to music wirelessly in high resolution. Think LDAC and DSEE Ultimate. That the Xperia 1 II is a high-end smartphone proves the processor choice. Inside is a Snapdragon 865 from Qualcomm. Together with a 4000 mAh battery with fast charging and wireless charging makes sure you can go forward for a while.

    Xperia 10 II

    Thought was also given to the middle segment. This is how Sony also refreshed the Xperia 10 with the arrival of this Xperia 10 II. This model is equipped with a 6 inch OLED screen with 21:9 ratio. The exchange of IPS by OLED creates deeper black tones and more colorful images. On the back there are now 3 cameras for portraits, ultra-wide-angle and a telephoto to zoom. The housing is made of Gorilla Glass 6 and is IP65/68 waterproof. The Snapdragon 665 draws power from a 3600 mAh battery with Xperia Adaptive Charging for better energy management.

    Sony Xperia Pro

    But the real surprise is the arrival of the Xperia Pro; Sony's first mmWave 5G phone. Although the Xperia 1 II also supports 5G, we are talking about the slower Sub-6 5G. A fast mobile internet connection can come in handy because the Xperia Pro shoots just like the Xperia 1 II photos in RAW and video in 4K HDR. Strangely enough, the Xperia Pro does not offer the very best in terms of specifications that Sony is currently doing, as we find in the aforementioned Xperia 1 II. There are 3 cameras in the back here, one less. What's special is the HDMI port it is equipped with. Connects it directly to your TV. Furthermore, there is a lot of similarity with which the Pro really is another typical showcase model. In other words, to show the world what it can do.
