The all-new Xperia 5 II, according to our expectations, is going to have a much traditional rectangular design, which is something unique to see in the Sony handsets. It may have a 6.1-inch Full HD+ HDR OLED display. This display is a must in the device as it is a prime requirement of all the flagships in 2020. The device will have an aspect ratio of 21:9. This device will allow an immersive experience to the users as you will see a significant upgrade in the display regarding the refresh rate. It may come with a refresh rate of 120Hz. This device may come with a Snapdragon 865 SoC chipset coupled with an 8GB of RAM and internal storage space of 128GB. The company may keep the MicroSD card slot option available on the device. The device will be 5G ready.
There are also reports that the device might come with an internal storage of 256GB and with a battery capacity, which may range between 3,200mAh – 3,600mAh. The actual battery and storage capacity specification will only get clarified once there comes an official announcement until then; we need to wait for further clarification regarding both.
Some reports also suggest that the device might come with a 4,000mAh of battery, and the device might come with a USB Type C charging port and a fast-charging feature for charging the battery quickly when needed. You may also see NFC on the device along with a fingerprint sensor.
Sony Xperia 5 II: Camera
Sony is widely famous for its camera sensors. Its camera sensors are used by a vast number of mobile manufacturing companies in their smartphones. When it comes to imaging, Sony delivers a great user experience. The upcoming Sony Xperia 5 II is expected to have a triple camera setup on the rear. This triple-camera setup might have three 12-megapixel cameras on the rear. The primary sensor would have an f/1.7 aperture and an 82-degree field-of-view, the telephoto sensor would come with a 3X zoom, and the ultra-wide-angle sensor would come with a 124-degrees broad view. If this happens so, it will, by far, be the most comprehensive viewing range on a smartphone camera sensor to date. You will be able to shoot 4K HDR videos at 120fps, and you could also get both EIS and OIS and EIS stabilization for shooting videos. You might even get a camera shutter button alongside all the features, and it will be available on the device on the right side.
So, these were the leaked specifications of Sony Xperia 5 II; we are sure, that the significant part of specifications we have discussed will be seen on the device, yet there are still some clarifications that need to be made regarding the battery and storage capacity of the device and for that, let’s wait till the company officially announces the device.
