Sony Xperia 1 II and Xperia Pro Gallery

If at first you don’t succeed, tweak. That’s Sony’s strategy with the Xperia 1 II, a “Mark II” upgrade of 2019’s Xperia 1 with more camera refinements and a punchier processor. On the rear there are three cameras and a 3D time-of-flight sensor. You get a 16mm 12-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 lens, a 70mm 12-megapixel f/2.4 camera, and a 24mm 12-megapixel f/1.7.

The primary 24mm camera as well as the 16mm camera use Dual Photo Diode sensors. The 24mm also has on-sensor autofocus, covering roughly 70-percent of the sensor. It allows for things like Real-Time Eye AF, which can now recognize both humans and pets. On the video side, Sony has added to the 4K 24p with support for 25 and 60 fps shooting.

As for the Xperia Pro, Sony is describing that as a “technology development” right now, though one it intends to eventually commercialize. Though it may look at first glance like the Xperia 1 II, it’s designed to mount on top of a camera and – courtesy of an HDMI input – act as a monitor display as well as doing duty as a 5G modem for streaming.
