The 5G Sony Xperia 5 II will ship with an 18W charger
No love for the charger from Sony
The Xperia 1 II features a decent 4,000mAh battery and Sony has decided to re-use that cell inside the smaller Xperia 5 II. It represents a massive bump in capacity over the first-generation model, which featured a 3,140mAh battery.
But whereas rival brands such as Samsung and Huawei are pulling ahead in the power adapter department with fast charging speeds of 25W and 40W respectively, FCC documents (via GSMArena) show Sony has decided to retain its 18W technology again.
A flagship chipset paired with a flagship display
For those of you that aren’t aware, the Sony Xperia 5 II will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage as standard. Customers can expect Android 10 and Sony’s minimal UI customizations straight out of the box.
Completing the package is a triple-camera system borrowed from the ultra-premium Sony Xperia 1 II and a 120Hz 6.1-inch OLED display.
