Sony just announced Xperia 1 II (Pronounced Mark 2), the company’s latest flagship smartphone and its first 5G smartphone at an online event. It packs the same 6.5-inch 21:9 CinemaWide 4K HDR display offering bright colors with BRAVIA X1 for mobile as the predecessor, but is powered by Snapdragon 865 with 8GB of RAM and has support for sub-6GHz 5G. It packs triple rear cameras that includes 12-megapixel main camera with f/1.7 aperture, OIS, 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, 12-megapixel telephoto lens with OIS for 3x loss-less zoom, and there is also a 3D iToF (indirect Time-of-Flight) sensor. The Cinema Pro, powered by CineAlta offers 21:9 Movie recording in 4K HDR that promises best results — even in backlit scenes or low light. It has Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection on the front and the back, side-mounted fingerprint sensor and packs a 4,000mAh battery.
OPPO Find X which was launched back in 2018 was a bold attempt from the company with the motorized dual rear camera setup and was quite successful too. While there was no information on the successor for quite some time now, it is likely to change now as the Find X2 Pro has received BIS certification, indicating an imminent launch. OPPO Find X2 Pro (CPH-2025) has appeared on the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) in Thailand and has got the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification. So, we can expect the India launch soon and there are chances that OPPO could launch this alongside the Reno3 Pro in February. Furthermore, these will feature 65W Super VOOC charging which is said to charge the smartphone fully in 35 minutes.
