Xperia 1 II: Is Sony equipping its next flagship with a better main camera than the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus?
Announced last month, there remain many unknowns about the Xperia 1 II. While Sony states that the device will incorporate "industry leading Sony Alpha technology" and ZEISS optics, it is still yet to confirm which camera sensors that the Xperia 1 II will feature.
|Sensor name||Camera type||Megapixel count||Aperture|
|Sony IMX363||Ultra-wide-angle||12 MP||f/2.2|
|Sony IMX557||Main rear-facing camera||12 MP||f/1.7|
|ISOCELL S5K3T2||Telephoto||12 MP||f/2.4|
|ISOCELL S5K4H7||Front-facing||8 MP||f/2.0|
GSMArena speculates that the IMX557 will likely share a few characteristics with the IMX555 found in the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus. However, there is no evidence to suggest that is the case as Sony is yet to publish any details about the IMX557.
The Xperia 1 II appears to have UFS 3.0 storage, too. Sony has confirmed that it will be releasing the Xperia 1 II in Q2 2020.
