Sony has recently announced its first 5G smartphone ‘Xperia 1 II’. Sony is a major supplier of image sensors to other smartphone makers and its Xperia 1 II camera is grabbing a lot of attention with its amazing design.

The camera of the Xperia 1 II has three lenses that offer a wide range of focal lengths (16mm, 24mm, 70mm) that enable the user to capture a variety of images. All the three rear lenses have a 12MP sensor, while the front lens has an 8MP sensor. And, it is for the first time that Sony is using Zeiss optics in its smartphones.

Another photo-friendly feature of the Xperia 1 II camera is real-time eye autofocus. Also, there is a noise reduction feature to improve audio capture. The smartphone packs a 4,000mAh battery as well as fast wireless charging. The Xperia 1 II has a 3.5mm headphone jack that lets music lovers enjoy music with a high sound quality by just plugging in their favorite headphones.

About Sony’s new 5G handset, president of mobile communications, Mitsuya Kishida said: “Our new continuous autofocus keeps tracking of moving subjects. What’s special about this is with 20fps it calculates the object 3x per frame — that’s 60x per second — capturing the very moment. With the power and speed of 5G, you will be able to share those moments more quickly and more easily across the network”.
