Sony Xperia 1 II vs. Xperia 1: Specs and size comparison
Announced earlier this week as Sony's latest high-end smartphone, the Xperia 1 II (seen above) refines the design of its predecessor - Xperia 1 - and brings us plenty of hardware improvements.

While other Android phone makers continue to push the limits of all-screen designs, Sony is sticking with the same conservative (but still elegant) look that we know from last year's Xperia 1. Thus, there are no crazy notches or holes in Xperia 1 II's display, which is a 6.5-inch OLED panel with 1644 x 3840 pixels and a 21:9 aspect ratio.

Size-wise, the Xperia 1 II is pretty much on par with the Xperia 1, since it's got a similar screen. However, you may notice that the new phone is a tad thinner (7.9 mm vs. 8.1 mm).  

Sony's newest high-end handset uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, unsurprisingly being more powerful than the original Xperia 1, which packs a Snapdragon 855 CPU. There's also more RAM onboard: 8 GB vs. 6 GB.


The main camera of the Xperia 1 II is a triple one that adds an iToF (indirect Time of Flight) sensor - according to Sony, this enhances autofocus capabilities, even in low light situations. The camera allows you to capture up to 20 photos per second, as well as to record slow-motion 2K video (120 fps).

Other significant upgrades over the Xperia 1 are related to the new smartphone's internal storage (256 GB vs. 128 GB) and battery (4000 mAh vs. 3330 mAh). Oh, and the Xperia 1 II has brought back the classic 3.5mm audio jack!


While the Sony Xperia 1 II features 5G connectivity, it unfortunately doesn't support US-specific 5G bands. In other words, from this point of view, the new Xperia brings no advantages to US customers.

Similar to the Xperia 1, the Xperia 1 II will be sold unlocked in the US. Sony has confirmed that the device will be compatible with Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and Cricket. The new phone is expected to start shipping in the coming months and could be priced at around $999 or less.
