More speed, more possibilities
The Xperia 1 II sets a new bar for speed in a smartphone. It packs the latest cutting-edge technologies and a camera developed with Sony´s Alpha camera engineers to deliver exceptionally fast autofocus in a smartphone. And with a 21:9 6.5" 4K HDR OLED display you can watch everything in stunning cinema quality.
For mobile gamers
Professional technology from Alpha cameras
There’s never been a smartphone camera that can capture shots like the Xperia 1 II. It was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 9 series cameras renowned for its industry-leading autofocus technology. The Xperia 1 II features RAW support 3, Eye Autofocus which now works on both humans and animals, and an interface re-designed with new manual controls complimented with a hardware shutter button, all to meet the demands of professional photographers.
Outstanding ZEISS quality in your Xperia®
ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia® smartphone. The ZEISS® T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.
Capture the previously impossible with up to 20 fps AF/AE 4
The Xperia 1 II can capture moments that no other smartphone can. With up to 20 fps continuous burst shooting 5, complete with autofocus and auto exposure, you can capture hundreds of moments in seconds.
Up to 60 times per second continuous AF/AE calculation 6
Stay focused, no matter what’s happening in front of you. The Xperia 1 II continuously calculates autofocus and exposure up to 60 times per second. And with new algorithms for AF precision and performance, you’ll get clear, in-focus shots of even fast-moving scenes.
The sensor designed for speed
Focus fast in any conditions—day or night—with our innovative camera system. A Dual Photo Diode sensor7 delivers spectacularly fast and accurate focusing. With an autofocus system featuring a total of 247 phase-detection AF points covering nearly 70% of the sensor8, AF acquisition is achieved in just 0.03 seconds. And with an innovative 3D iToF (indirect Time-of-Flight) sensor9 for low light shooting, you’ll get precision focusing, whatever the condition. And it all comes together on the large 1/1.7" Exmor RS™ for Mobile imaging sensor with BIONZ X® for Mobile engine, to deliver speed and incredible photos.
The technology behind ultra-fast autofocus
Dual Photo Diode sensor
On our camera, each pixel has two photo diode light sensors, to deliver faster, accurate autofocus.
The autofocus system on the Xperia 1 II features a total of 247 phase-detection AF points covering nearly 70% of the sensor area achieving AF acquisition in just 0.03 seconds. The result is better focus on fast-moving subjects—similar to our latest RX100 series cameras.
Fast focus with a 3D iToF sensor
The iToF (indirect Time-of-Flight) sensor calculates the distance between the camera and your subject in an instant, for fast, accurate AF, whatever the scene.
Large sensor and pixels
Our 1/1.7" Exmor RS image sensor is 50% larger than on the previous model and has larger pixels, which receive more light for better image quality.
Experience Real-time Eye AF—for humans and animals 10
Capture stunning portraits of both people and animals with the sparkle and liveliness of perfect Eye Autofocus.
Eye Autofocus for every situation
Not every shot is a full profile with both eyes of your subject looking at the camera. Even when one eye is covered, or another object passes in front of your subject, the Xperia 1 II will still find the eye and focus fast.
Fast focus, even in low light situations
In scenes where light is low or limited, you’ll still enjoy fast autofocus, even when your subject is moving, thanks to three powerful technologies working together: a 3D iToF sensor, the BIONZ X® for Mobile engine, and the large Exmor RS™ for Mobile sensor.
3D iToF sensor
Our 3D iToF sensor instantly calculates the distance between the camera and your subject for fast, accurate autofocus in any scene.
BIONZ X® for mobile engine
The BIONZ X® for mobile engine has a unique algorithm developed by Sony, for increased light sensitivity and images with less noise.
Larger sensor and pixels
Our 1/1.7" Exmor RS image sensor is 50% larger than on the previous model and has larger pixels, which receive more light for better image quality.
