The Xperia 5 II has stopped by the FCC, confirming that it will come bundled with an 18 W fast charger. The September 17-bound flagship will also have a 4,000 mAh battery, a 120 Hz display and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC.

As the release date of the Xperia 5 II draws nearer, the device has stopped by the FCC. The regulatory body lists the device as the PY7-08372L, including the grantee code of Sony Mobile Communications Inc, and states that it will come bundled with a Sony UCH32 charger. Sony already sells the UCH32, which is certified to deliver up to 18 W of power using USB Power Delivery (PD). The charger outputs at 5V/3000 mA, 9V/2000 mA and 12V/1500 mA, for reference.

The UCH32 will be charging a 4,000 mAh battery inside of the Xperia 5 II, based on a leak published by Evan Blass last week. According to GSMArena, the Xperia 1 II, which also has a 4,00 mAh battery, takes 1:51 hours to reach full charge using the UCH32. The charger can get the Xperia 1 II from 0% to 46% charge in 30 minutes, though.

The FCC listing also describes the Xperia 5 II as having two sets of headphones. However, we imagine that Sony will include only a wired pair of earbuds in the box. Sony does not need to bundle a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm jack in the box though as the Xperia 5 II has a conventional headphone jack like the Xperia 1 II.

The Xperia 5 II will also have a Snapdragon 865 SoC, a 120 Hz display and the three rear-facing cameras from the Xperia 1 II. Sony will unveil the Xperia 5 II on September 17.
