Sony Xperia 5 II brings performance power in a compact body


The company says that the Xperia 5 II has the "first 4K HDR 120fps slow-motion movie recording in a smartphone", which can be played back at 5x slow motion (which shakes out to a cinematic 24 frames per second). It'll also have all the "pro" options Sony smartphone fans have come to expect.

Inside the phone everything is powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor, and that's matched up with 8 GB of RAM and either 128 GB or 256 GB of internal storage. After a series of leaks and rumors, the company has finally made the Sony Xperia 5 II official with powerful camera capabilities.

But would you still get a Sony Xperia phone if it were to ship in Kenya? A 4,000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and it supports USB PD fast charging.

Sony has also increased the touch sampling rate of the Xperia 5 II's display to 240Hz.

Sony has positioned the Xperia 5 II as a gaming machine, too.
