SONY Xperia 5 II has been launched as the newest addition to the company’s range of smartphones. The Japanese company, which is expected to release the PlayStation 5 sometime in November, has incorporated a number of interesting features in the Xperia 5 II.
The SONY Xperia 5 II launched with the Android 10 OS and is built around a 6.1-inch OLED (1080×2520 pixels) display with a 21:9 aspect ratio, a touch sampling rate of 240Hz and a 120Hz screen refresh rate. Under the hood, the octa-core Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 chipset is hooked to 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB of onboard storage (expandable via microSD).
In the camera department, this smartphone boasts the same triple-rear camera setup as its predecessor, the Xperia 5, with three 12MP modules in typical Sony style. Up front, an 8MP selfie camera takes care of video call responsibilities and selfies.
The SONY Xperia 5 II launched with IP68/IPX5 dust and water resistance, with both front and back protected by Gorilla Glass 6. This device has a 4,000mAh battery pack that supports fast charging at 21W, weighing 163 grams and measuring 158×68×8 mm
