While many of today’s cellular products parallel, and even surpass, some of the market’s most prominent camera systems, there’s still a long way to go when it comes to shooting capability, especially in the case of video. Now, Sony’s newly-announced Xperia 1 MKII looks to provide shooters with a cutting-edge cinematic experience, while also boasting the ever-elusive “5G” title.
Developed alongside the same body and lens engineers that have worked on Sony’s Alpha series cameras, the Xperia 1 MKII is the epitome of a multipurpose smartphone. Inside, a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile chip and 1/1.7″ sensor work in unison with the device’s Zeiss Optic-adorned triple rear camera, providing users with precise autofocus, 20 FPS continuous shooting, and 4K HDR video capabilities, courtesy of Cinematography Pro “powered by CineAlta.” A redesigned sound suite that looks to reduce signal noise and isolate specific frequencies during filming also helps to keep shots devoid of any low-end audio, meaning you’ll be able to utilize the phone’s camera system to its full extent. Pair that with seamless use alongside Sony’s Alpha range, IP65/68 water resistance, and Dolby Atmos support, and you’ve got a recipe for one of the industry’s most innovative handsets.
