Review for Sony Xperia 1 II

It has been a while since we saw any smartphone from Sony that managed to show up with unique features but it looks like things are about to change with the new the Sony Xperia 1 II or Sony Xperia 1 Mark II. It’s the new flagship phone from Sony that also comes with a flagship like expensive price tag. Continue reading to find out more about this phone including the Sony Xperia 1 II South Africa price.

6.5-inch OLED Display

Most of the flagship phones from Sony look quite similar and unfortunately the company didn’t do much to change that for the Sony Xperia 1 II. It’s the same design with big bezels on the top and bottom of the screen and the display covers 84.0% of the body. However, the display is really great with 4K resolution: Sony Xperia 1 II South Africa Price3840 x 1644 pixels resolution and 643ppi of pixel density that looks quite bright and vivid thanks to Sony’s BRAVIA HDR remaster technology. The placement of the cameras is almost exactly in the same place as the old flagship phones and it can be found in three different colors after the Sony Xperia 1 II release date South Africa: black, white and purple. One of the surprising parts of the design is that although it’s IP65/IP68 rated depending on the version you get for dust and water resistance, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack port which is not a feature you would see in phones like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Quad Rear Camera Setup

Sony is quite popular for their camera and the company borrowed some features from those cameras for their upcoming Sony Xperia 1 II. It seems like this phone is primarily designed for those who are looking for a great camera phone and considering the Sony Xperia 1 II South Africa price, it should definitely deliver. On paper, this phone comes with four cameras on the back: a 12-megapixel 24mm wide sensor, a 12-megapixel 70mm telephoto sensor, a 12-megapixel 16mm Sony Xperia 1 II South Africa Priceultrawide sensor, and a 0.3-megapixel TOF 3D camera. These are ZEISS quality lenses calibrated for this phone specifically but we will have to wait for the Sony Xperia 1 II release date South Africa to find out how it performs in real life. Like industry level Sony cameras, this one offers features like eye autofocus, RAW support, manual controls and support for shooting images continuously at 20fps. As for the front camera, its an 8-megapixel one which is definitely disappointing for a phone that heavily focused on its camera features. There is also the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus and Huawei Mate 30 Pro if you are not interested to wait for its release date.

4000mAh Li-Po Non-removable Battery

Nowadays all the phones perform more or less the same so it’s actually the battery that’s more important at the end of the day. This phone comes with a 4000mAh Li-Po battery that also supports fast charging. Some of the other notable features are: Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 (7nm+) octa-core processor, microSDXC slot, 256GB built-in storage, 8GB of RAM, Android 10.0, UFS storage system, Bluetooth 5.1, USB 3.1 port, Type-C 1.0 port, fingerprint sensor on the side and NFC.

Sony Xperia 1 II South Africa Price

The Sony Xperia 1 II will cost a whopping R 16200 when it’s here. The release date is still a mystery at this point but it’s expected to show up sometimes in the first quarter of 2020. There is also the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip you can check out if you would like to try foldable display phones instead.
