During the past few weeks there has been a lot of talk about the arrival of a new high-end smartphone from Sony, which will arrive to succeed the Xperia 5 launched during IFA 2019. Now, after its design has been revealed in images published by the renowned Evan Blass, we have (practically) confirmation of its submission date.
The manufacturer has already confirmed that it will host an online event through its official YouTube account on September 17th. The event will start at 8AM (UK time) and although information about the planned news has not been revealed, everything indicates that it will be used for the presentation of the much talked about Sony Xperia 5 II.
Sony Xperia 5 II will follow the brand’s usual design lines
After having decided to bet on smartphones with a peculiar design, the manufacturer seems committed to following its strategy, launching smartphones with a seriously stretched screen. Therefore, as confirmed by the images published by Blass, the Xperia 5 II will also arrive with a very high screen, maintaining the 21: 9 format.
However, it seems that Sony will not yet make the will to its fans, keeping vertical margins extremely visible. In the case of the top of the front panel, the margin will be used to integrate the front camera, handset and respective sensors. At the rear, we have a module with three sensors, which has a very conservative design.
Alleged specifications of the Sony Xperia 5 II
- 6.1 “inch OLED screen with Full HD + resolution and 21: 9 format
- 120Hz refresh rate
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor
- 8GB of RAM
- 256GB internal memory
- Triple rear camera: 12MP + 12MP (ultrawide) + ?? MP
- Side fingerprint reader
- 4,000mAh battery
- Android 10
With regard to its triple rear camera, we continue to await concrete information about its sensors. Most likely, the “mystery” sensor should be your main sensor, which will be at least 48MP. As for the lens of the second 12MP sensor, it is possible that it is dedicated to capturing portraits.
Since we are still practically 3 weeks from its official presentation, it is guaranteed that more information will come up to “D-day”.
