The Sony Xperia 1 II is a flagship Android smartphone manufactured by Sony Mobile. Part of Sony’s Xperia series, the phone was announced along with the mid-range Xperia 10 II on February 24, 2020. Key upgrades over its predecessor, the Xperia 1, include support for 5G connectivity and Qi wireless charging, and a triple-lens camera which incorporates ZEISS-branded lenses with T✻ (T-Star) anti-reflective coating as well as technology brought over from Sony’s Alpha camera lineup.
The Xperia 1 II will ship with support for 5G NR in Europe and Asia (making it Sony’s first Xperia device to support this network), while the United States will ship with a 4G variant. Although 5G networks are supported, it only supports “sub-6” 5G, meaning it is not compatible with millimeter-wave (mmWave) networks.
The Xperia 1 II retains Sony’s signature square design that is seen on previous Xperia phones. The phone has Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection on the front and back as well as IP65 and IP68 certifications for water resistance. The build has a pair of symmetrical bezels on the top and the bottom, where the front-facing dual stereo speakers and the front camera are placed. The left side of the phone contains a compartment for a SIM card and a microSDXC card, while the right side contains a fingerprint reader embedded into the power button, a volume rocker and a shutter button. The rear cameras are arranged in a vertical strip. The phone will ship in three colours: Black, Purple and White (in Japan and Hong Kong only).
