Industry-leading autofocus camera technology offers up to 20 fps[i] burst shooting with 60 times per second[ii] calculations and Real-time Eye AF for humans and animals[iii]

Cinematography Pro powered by CineAlta can record in multiple frame rates[iv] and offer more manual controls to enhance your cinematographic shooting experiences

Audio quality as artists intended with sound tuned in collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment, front stereo speakers, and new 360 Reality Audio[xiii] with unique hardware decoding to optimise sound quality

21:9 CinemaWide 6.5 4K HDR OLED display[v]delivers unprecedented colour accuracy with Creator mode powered by CineAlta .

Optimal speed and performance with next Generation 5G connectivity and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G Mobile Platform, with high capacity 4000mAh battery with wireless charging.

Available to pre-order now, the new Xperia 1 II is built for speed with ultra-fast 5G connectivity and a triple lens camera equipped with a host of industry-leading technology taken from Sony Alpha's professional digital imaging models.

The Xperia 1 II is the ultimate camera for the photography enthusiast, helping you capture like a pro by utilising AF technology developed for Alpha interchangeable lens cameras. The triple lens camera offers continuous AF that performs AF/AE calculations at 60 times per second[ii]. Meaning the Xperia 1 II has the world's first AF/AE continuous tracking for high-speed shooting in a smartphone at a maximum of 20 fps[i]. It's perfect for capturing sports, wildlife, or even just kids that won't sit still, as you can focus and follow the subject no matter where they move in the frame.

This technology, combined with outstanding ZEISS optics that were calibrated specifically for Xperia 1 II, allows you to capture every moment in exquisite detail no matter how fast life is moving around you. Plus, with Sony Alpha's award-winning Eye AF technology for animals, as well as humans[iii], even your pets won't escape your lens, which offers three focal lengths 16mm, 24mm and 70mm to capture them in all their glory from whichever angle you choose.

For those more advanced photographers the new Photography Pro technology from Alpha has a user interface that allows manual control of the ISO, shutter speed and more. Plus, with a dual photo diode sensor[vi], an auto-focus system that covers approximately 70 percent of the sensor[vii], the 3D iToF sensor[viii] and a new large 1/1.7 Exmor RS sensor for mobile, the Xperia 1 II is 1.5x more sensitive than the previous model so its fast AF system even works well in low light conditions for high quality images whatever the setting.

The Xperia 1 II's Cinematography Pro app powered by CineAlta also supports 2K 120fps 10 bit HDR cinematic high frame rate shooting[ix] and Cinematic 21:9 4K HDR recording at 24/25/30/60fps[x] for enhanced cinematographic shooting experiences. You can also utilise touch AF and manually control settings such as exposure, Level meter and white balance for a more professional feel, while the unique Intelligent wind filter technology from Sony reduces noise and wind interference for clear audio recording.

For ease of sharing, Imaging Edge for Mobile connects the Xperia 1 II to Sony's Alpha cameras[xi] enabling you to transfer photos and review colours and hues with professional grade accuracy. The Xperia 1 II can also be used as a secondary menu for your Alpha camera via Imaging Edge, so you can control composition, focus mode and ISO sensitivity among other settings remotely.

Whether you're a novice looking for a new hobby or a seasoned professional wanting a smartphone that can partner with your Alpha model, the Xperia 1 II is the perfect companion to get shooting and hone your skills.

Xperia 1 II also offers you the chance to relax with the ultimate entertainment experience. Drawing on Sony's expertise both in audio hardware and music entertainment, the Xperia 1 II has been engineered to deliver a truly authentic listening experience, with audio tuned in collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment. This fantastic audio quality can be enjoyed through the front facing speakers, wireless or wired headphones via the 3.5mm jack. It is also the world's first smartphone to utilise Sony's 360 Reality Audio technology[xii] which optimises sound quality when listening to music on global music and entertainment platform TIDAL[xiii]. Plus, with Xperia 1 II's new DSEE Ultimate technology you can listen to audio in the highest-resolution possible and get the experience the creator intended thanks to AI that automatically improves audio frequency and bit rate in real-time.

You can also further immerse yourself in viewing entertainment thanks to the 21:9 CinemaWide 6.5 4K HDR OLED, which offers a cinematic experience while watching films, as well as an unrestricted view for game play. Take your gaming to the next level when you combine your Xperia 1 II with PlayStation 4s DUALSHOCK 4[xiv] Wireless Controller for easy gaming anywhere. And now with improved touch response time on screen, as well as an updated version of Xperia's Game Enhancer which allows you to pin a game App to the screen, the Xperia 1 II can easily be turned into a gaming-focussed device for the most dedicated gamers out there.

All this is possible thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G Mobile Platform and the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF system which lets you game, capture, stream and connect with staggering multi-gigabit 5G speeds and improved performance with 25% faster CPU and GPU than the previous model. Plus, with IP65/68 water resistance[xv], Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and a large 4000mAh capacity battery comp
