With 5G soon arriving, many tech giants are gearing up its smartphones for the new technology, and among them is Sony with its latest flagship smartphone: the Xperia 1 II.

Created by the Japanese electronics company to be the first of its devices to support 5G, it also seized the opportunity to make a truly powerful phone, with a whole range of high-performance hardware. The phone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5GB Mobile Platform and features a 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED display with a 16:10 resolution, anti-motion blur technology, and extremely accurate color reproduction. Keeping audiophiles in mind, Sony also made the new Xperia Dolby Atmos-friendly, and most significantly retained its 3.5mm audio jack specifically designed for improved audio separation while reducing unwanted noise from signal transfers. Other highlights include a 4,000 mAh battery that supports both wireless and high-speed wired charging, IP65/68 certified water resistance, a 12-megapixel three-camera setup with Zeiss glassware, and even PlayStation DualShock 4 compatibility.

There’s currently no official release date or pricing information on the Xperia 1 II, but you can head over to Sony’s website to learn more now.

For more things tech-related, Apple’s rumored AirPods “Pro Lite” could arrive mid-2020.
