Sony digital camera engineers have imbued the Sony Xperia 1 II 256GB Smartphone with high-end imaging technology and optics similar to what one might find on their flagship a9 mirrorless cameras. At its core are a large 1/1.7" Exmor RS sensor and BIONZ X image processor optimized for mobile that will help enable professional-grade photography features. The larger pixels of the sensor draw in more light for brilliant image quality that's processed quickly. With the addition of ZEISS optics sporting a ZEISS T* coating, photos are sharp and clear with minimal reflections. This technology is incorporated into triple 12MP rear cameras capable of 16mm, 24mm, & 70mm focal lengths.
As with the Alpha 9, the Xperia 1 II's camera system delivers an extremely fast autofocusing system. A dual photo diode sensor provides 247 phase-detection AF points and focusing calculations are done 60 times per second. The results are a smartphone camera that can handle fast moving scenes, capturing focus in as little as 0.03 seconds. Add in a 3D iToF sensor and you can employ fast autofocusing in low light scenes as well. When shooting people or animals, Sony's Eye Autofocus feature detects even a single open eye for automatic focusing on your subject.
Exceptional videos can also be captured with the Xperia 1 II with support for a 21:9 CinemaWide aspect ratio and up to 4K resolution. These videos, along with streaming media, games, and other apps can be enjoyed on the Xperia 1 II's stunning 6.5" 4K HDR OLED display. The addition of motion blur technology helps to minimize lag for clearer image quality, and Dolby Atmos emits cinema-quality sound via two front stereo speakers. Rounding out your entertainment options is support for immersive 360 Reality Audio music files.
Running the Android 10 operating system, this phone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and 8GB of RAM. You can store photos, 4K video, and more on 256GB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via an (optional) microSD card up to 256GB in size. This phone is unlocked and compatible with GSM/4G LTE networks. Connect to the internet and other devices with built-in 2.4+5 GHz Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), and Bluetooth 5.1.
