Sony Xperia 1 II Hands-on: A fine-tuned upgrade over the Xperia 1 [Video]
Earlier this year in February, Sony unveiled its flagship smartphone for 2020 — the Xperia 1 II. The device went on sale in Japan earlier this month and Sony expanded its availability to the US earlier today. Much like its predecessor, the Xperia 1 II packs in top-of-the-line specifications, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, a 21:9 6.5″ 4K HDR display, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. XDA TV‘s TK Bay had a chance to take a look at the device before launch and here are his first impressions of Sony’s latest flagship.
In his Xperia 1 II hands-on video, TK goes through the phone’s hardware specifications, with emphasis on its audio, video, camera, and gaming capabilities. A large portion of the video is dedicated to the Xperia 1 II’s display and Sony’s software offering that will help users make the most out of the professional-grade screen.
TK also focuses on the Xperia 1 II’s new Camera Pro updated Cinema Pro apps, that have been designed to offer a Sony Alpha-like experience on the smartphone. The apps offer granular adjustments for everything from the ISO to the shutter speed for each individual camera module on the back of the device and it even lets you customize the UI as per your needs.
Even though Sony’s mobile division isn’t doing great, the company has done a fantastic job with its latest flagship and has included some noteworthy improvements over last year’s Xperia 1. Do check out TK’s video above to learn more about the Xperia 1 II’s capabilities.
