The Sony Xperia 5 II made an appearance earlier today – it packs the Xperia 1 II hardware into a smaller case and improves on some areas like the screen, which now supports a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a sample rate of 240 Hz.
120Hz is the future of multi-title gaming for next-gen consoles (like the PS5) that have already announced support. The phone also has game-centric features that eliminate distractions, ensure consistent performance, and allow you to record voice comments on the go.
The next clip offers a more general look at the new Sony flagship. Aside from gaming, the phone places great emphasis on video quality ̵
Speaking of music, you can enjoy Hi-Res audio whether you’re using wired headphones or working wirelessly. And when you unplug the headphones, the Mark Two still has stereo front speakers for music and video.
Sony is a big name in the film industry, it even owns a studio. Creation mode was activated on the 6.1-inch HDR display to ensure that the image displayed is what the director of the film wanted to see. It’s a 21: 9 bootable panel that allows for cinematic content to be recorded without letterboxing.
What if you want to be the one behind the camera? The Xperia 5 II has the right tools for the job – the Cinematography Pro app offers advanced manual controls. It can even record 4K slow motion clips at 120 fps.
If photography is more your speed, it will get it done too. The phone borrows technology from the Sony Alpha team to power its triple 12 MP camera with ZEISS optics. Once again, manual controls with functions such as Eye AF (humans and animals), series shots at 20 frames per second with AF / AE and Bionz X image processing are available in the customized Photography Pro app. The 1 / 1.7-inch main sensor has large 1.8-µm pixels that are optimized for recording in low-light conditions.
