It would be a long time since Sony has not introduced a new smartphone in the market, although it really used to have some great offerings in the past. However, the company has now announced a new phone Sony Xperia 5 II, which will be a follow up to their last year offering Sony Xperia 5. The new smartphones will come with a few notable upgrades in a better designed and slimmer package. The phone will come with a 6.1-inch screen, which will be an FHD+ OLED display, supporting a refresh rate of 120Hz. Along with this, the panel will also support HDR and motion blur, which is also used in Sony’s TV lineup.
The phone will be the first in the market to use the black frame insertion, which reduces motion blur. The display has a 240Hz touch sampling rate, which should enhance all of your interactions with the Sony Xperia 5 II. In addition, it will be powered by the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset and 8GB of RAM, to make sure that there is no lack in performance. The phone will be launched in two different variants, providing you the storage option of 128 and 256, along with microSD card support. The phone will still have the triple camera setup as it was in the previous model, which will be the 12-megapixel setup consisting of a 16mm wide-angle, 70mm telephoto (3x), and 24mm main (or wide) setup.
A battery of 4000 mAh will ensure a full day of working with 18W fast charging out of the box. However, the users will have the option to purchase a 21W fast charger as an additional accessory. Other features of the phone include a 3.5mm jack, Gorilla Glass 6, IP68 water, and dust resistance rating, etc. It will be available for preorder in the US on September 29 and will retail in Europe for €900.
