Late last night Sony announced the Xperia 1 Mark II, a smartphone that can shoot 20fps still images and offers some of the focus and exposure technology found in Sony’s high-end a9 camera. The main camera in the array of three opts for a 12-megapixel, 1/1.7 inch sensor with real-time Eye AF for humans and animals. On the front you’ll find a 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED display.
The three lenses check in at 16mm, 24mm, and 70mm focal length equivalents and they all have a ZEISS T* coating to cut down on reflections. This advanced smartphone works great in low light thanks to that large sensor and an autofocus system that covers 70 percent of the sensor.
On the video side of things, the phone supports 2K video at 120fps 10-bit HDR shooting and 4K HDR recording at 24/25/60fps. There are metered manual controls for exposure, levels and white balance. The microphone employs a smart wind filter setting to provide clear audio recording without additional accessories.
The Xperia 1 II has a 4,000 mAh battery that charges to fifty percent in 30 minutes. It has a IP65/68 water resistant rating and features strong Gorilla Glass 6 on both sides. The phone will come with Android 10 and be available in 2020 on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket and MetroPCS.
