Smartphone engineering is accelerating at a rate that’s threatening obsolescence to once-specialist gadgets. First, it was the digital camera; now, however, it appears that Sony aims to take on video cameras and portable gaming systems in one fell swoop.

The launch of the flagship Xperia 5 II marks the world’s first smartphone equipped with 4k HDR 120fps slow-motion video recording. But version two boasts a number of other upgrades compared to its predecessor. For instance, the Xperia 5 II gains 5G connectivity thanks to its Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, a beautiful 6.1-inch CinemaWide OLED display, and a lightning-quick 120Hz refresh rate. While this translates to smoother day-to-day onscreen performance, it also means that users can customize the refresh rate during gameplay. Additionally, Sony’s fitted its Xperia 5 II with Heat Suppression Power Control, a gaming mode that shuts off the battery when using the charging cord to prevent the phone from overheating. Add in a generous 4000mAh battery, a 12MP triple-lens Zeiss camera, and 8GB of ram, and you have a capable smartphone flush with all the features you could ask for. You can buy the Xperia 5 II today from Sony for $950.
