The flagship packs a triple camera setup developed with the engineers behind Sony’s A7 III and other popular mirrorless cameras. The three 12-megapixel cameras (wide, ultrawide, and zoom) can shoot at up to 20 fps in burst mode with autofocus and auto-exposure enabled, making it suitable for action and sports shooting.

It also has the ability to do human/animal eye-tracking and comes with pro photography and movie settings to give users full manual control.

A leak shows that the Xperia 1 II has a big 6.5-inch 21:9 4K HDR OLED screen and can serve as an external display for some Sony DSLR or mirrorless camera models. Other specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 856 CPU and a 4,000mAh battery to keep that bright screen going, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

What more? The Xperia 1 II is Sony’s first 5G smartphone (sub-6Ghz) for Europe, but for now, it will only support LTE bands in the US. Sony may soon unveil the Xperia Pro 5G with high-speed mmWave 5G tech that does work in the United States.

That phone would also have professional broadcast features including an HDMI input port and will no doubt cost even more than the non-pro model. As mentioned, orders kick off on June 1st with shipping slated to start on July 24th.
