The Xperia 5 II features a fast camera with technology from Sony’s Alpha series cameras, including Real-time Eye AF for humans and animals for portraits, and up to 20 fps burst shooting with continuous Autofocus that performs AF / AE calculations at 60 times per second.

Sony boasts that the Xperia 5 II will be the first in the world to offer 4K HDR 120fps slow-motion movie recording in a smartphone – it can capture and playback up to 5x slow-motion when recorded at 24fps.

Its immersive 21:9 CinemaWide 6.1” FHD+ HDR OLED display offers colour accuracy with Creator mode “powered by CineAlta”.

The phone is built for gaming with 120Hz Refresh rate display and 240Hz Motion blur reduction for smooth action, plus 240Hz Touch scanning rate and Touch response improvements by around 35% compared to previous model (Xperia 5) for accurate and quick gaming.

The Xperia 5 II has a 4,000mAh battery with fast charging.

The phone is designed to be compact (W68mm x D8mm) to fit comfortably in your hand or pocket.

More details below from the press release.

Xperia 5 II takes many of the leading features from Xperia 1 II, including a triple lens camera paired with ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for Xperia 5 II.

Its superb audio features include High-Resolution Audio, a 3.5mm audio jack, and front-facing stereo speakers, all rounded up in a compact and beautiful, slim design to fit perfectly in your pocket.

It also adds 120Hz Refresh display rate and 240Hz Touch scanning rate to give the smoothest and most accurate gaming experience.

Capture perfect portraits and unmissable moments, always in focus

Taking a leaf out of its big brother’s (Xperia 1 II) book, Xperia 5 II is designed with technology from Alpha™ series cameras for razor sharp results.

Perfect portraits aren’t always posed and creating clear, spontaneous shots is where Real-time Eye AF comes into its own.

Whether you’re photographing fast-moving people or animals, Real-time Eye AF makes sure the most expressive part of the face takes centre stage, even when one eye is covered, or the person is moving quickly.

“Sony’s heritage has been rooted in technology and engineering, and our portfolio has expanded to include the field of entertainment from music, movies, games and much more. With this unique background, Xperia smartphones are feature-packed with Sony’s advanced technologies in a compact body, with a profound passion to push the boundaries of what is possible,” said Atsushi Endo, President, Sony Singapore Marketing Company.

Xperia 5 II captures unmissable moments by offering continuous Autofocus that performs AF / AE calculations at 60 times per second, which enables you to shoot and store 20 shots (20fps) with high precision, accurate focus and optimised exposure.

The versatile triple lens camera, with three focal lengths: 16mm/24mm/70mm, captures beautiful landscapes and portraits, and lets you zoom in on distant subjects.

The ZEISS optics are specifically calibrated for the Xperia 5 II and feature the renowned ZEISS T* coating for reduced reflection, resulting in exquisite contrast and image rendering.

Quality images are captured when shooting at low light with its 1/1.7-inch large sensor and noise reduction with Bionz X™ for Mobile engine.

Like Xperia 1 II, it offers Photography Pro, a user interface that was developed in collaboration with professional photographers and mirrors many of the manual controls available in Alpha cameras including ISO, Shutter Speed and EV Indicator, whilst also providing RAW support.

In addition, Cinematography Pro “powered by CineAlta” now enables more choice for engaging, story-telling with dramatic slow-motion cinematography creation, making it the world’s first 4K HDR 120fps slow-motion movie recording in a smartphone which can capture and playback up to 5x slow-motion when set at 24fps.

It also records in 21:9 ratio at 24/25/30/60fps, enhancing cinematic expression.

Eight different Look colour management pre-sets allow you to change the mood of your scenes to different cinema styles.

Whilst Sony’s unique Intelligent wind filter technology uses award-winning audio separation technology to reduce wind interference for clearer audio recording.

360 Reality Audio hardware decoding optimises sound quality when listening to music on global music and entertainment platform, TIDAL.

High-quality music can be enjoyed through the front stereo speakers or when listening with headphones either wirelessly or with the 3.5mm audio jack.
