The Xperia 1 II, Sony's most expensive flagship, is edging ever closer to being released. Due this quarter, Sony has hinted that we could be just days away from a proper unveiling. The device's €1,119 (~US$1,227.40) launch price may be a sticking point for most people, though.
Alex Alderson,

The Xperia 1 II may finally be getting a release. Announced in February, the Xperia 1 II is Sony's next flagship smartphone. Featuring the obligatory Snapdragon 865, the device also has a 6.5-inch OLED panel and Sony's 21:9 aspect ratio.

Spotted with an IMX557 last month, plenty of mysteries remain about the Xperia 1 II. While Sony had originally stated that it would release the device in Q2 2020, the absence of release date updates since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic suggested that the company had delayed proceedings.

Sony España is of the belief that the Xperia 1 II is still on track for Q2. Specifically, the subdivision has been informing people that the Xperia 1 II will land before the end of the month. Hence, we may be just days away from a proper launch.

Sony has already confirmed the launch price of the Xperia 1 II, too. According to a German press release, the Xperia 1 II will retail for €1,119 (~US$1,227.40).
