The company announced that Sony's latest flagship smartphone, the Xperia 1 II (pronounced "mark two"), will ship for $1,199 in the US starting July 24th. Pre-orders begin on 1 June. And if you pre-order by June 28th you will get a free pair of earbuds canceling Sony WF-1000XM3 noise.
A major feature of the Xperia 1 II is its 12-megapixel triple-camera array, which Sony says is capable of shooting up to 20 fps in burst mode, making AF / AE calculations up to 60 times per second, and autofocusing on human and animal eyes for portrait shots. The phone also comes with the Photography Pro and Cinematography Pro apps which give you more manual control over your photos and videos camera settings.
The Xperia 1 II has a 6.5-inch, 4 K HDR OLED screen with an aspect ratio of 21:9, making it bigger than many other phones. The phone is powered by Snapdragon 865 processor from Qualcomm, it has a 4,000mAh battery and supports wireless charging. This also has an audio jack of 3.5 mm, if you are plugging in headphones.
Sony also said it has "development plans" for the Xperia Pro, a new phone that supports mmWave 5 G, which typically offers faster speeds than 5 G sub-6Hz but has a more limited range. But Sony says the new phone will show you the direction of a mmWave 5 G connection and your transmission and reception speeds to help you find service when you're using the Xperia Pro. The Xperia 1 II will only be 4 G in the US, but supports 5 G in its Europe variant.
The Xperia Pro will also have a micro HDMI cable, so you can connect it with an HDMI output to cameras. This means that, according to Sony, you can use the Xperia Pro as a monitor for some DSLR cameras and professional camcorders as well as transmit data captured by a camera over the phone's 5 G connection.
