Sony is expected to announce the Xperia 5 II at an online event on September 17. This will obviously be the successor to the Xperia 5 from last year, and it looks like Sony isn’t ready to give up on its insane naming scheme just yet.
Recently we saw the first leaked render showing the Xperia 5 II, and today more of these have been outed, alongside a substantial list of its specs.
The phone is said to sport a 6.1-inch FHD+ OLED display with 21:9 aspect ratio, 120 Hz refresh rate, and 240 Hz touch sampling rate. At the helm we find the Snapdragon 865 chipset (the vanilla, non-Plus version), aided by 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.
The rear cameras are wide, ultrawide, and tele. The main shooter is a 12 MP unit with f/1.7 aperture, 24mm equivalent lens, with 82-degree field of view. The tele is also 12 MP, with f/2.4 aperture, and gives you 3x optical zoom. The ultrawide is 12 MP too, with f/2.2 aperture, and 16 mm equivalent focal length an 124-degree field of view. The Xperia 5 II will feature 120fps video recording in 4K HDR.
The handset measures 158 x 68 x 8 mm, and it’s kept alive by a 4,000 mAh battery that charges through a USB-C port with PD support. A headphone jack is in too, making a return (the original 5 didn’t have one).
