Let's play a game: if anyone can practically justify here how UFS3 and LDPPR5 RAM makes their life on the phone easier over UFS2.1 and LDPPR4 I will personally purchase and ship her or him Galaxy S20 Ultra as long as their live in EU or USA/Canada. I'm not kidding cause at the same time I know no can justify such thing.

I like 21:9 ratio very much, it's convenient for me.

You get whatever you pay, I am willing to pay $2600 motorola razr dan $1200 for this xperia because I try all brand and i know both quality are superb.

USB VERSION
Ver. 3.1

Well it appears it won't have 5G in U.S. at least for T-Mobile, and I think Verizon too. It's also missing Band 71 for 4G LTE, which T-Mobile also uses. But back to 5G..........for T-Mobile, they use Bands 41, 71, 260, & 261 (Verizon only uses 260 & 261 at this time anyway). The 1 II doesn't have ANY of those bands, which to me is unacceptable, especially at $900+ (and possibly $1000+).

Regarding UFS though, Phone Arena shows 3.1, and yes GSM removed 2.0 as well. So I'm going to assume the listing on Phone Arena IS correct, which is great!

I also have a big issue with it having NO Face Unlock, despite all the MANY impressive improvements Sony put on it over the Xperia 1. Still gotta wait and see on the camera quality and battery life too though. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint on both fronts like the Xperia 1 did last year.

Im really wait to test this 24mm 12mpx nice size 1/1.7" sensor with f1.7 Zeiss optics. Maybe before launche I will get it. :]

Making innovations for the sake of innovations leads to Sony claiming a remote control to be a smartphone. It is not convenient to work on a remote control. Sony must understand that. They can make a 16:9 or 18:9 flagship and compare how much they will sell compared to the same phone specs with ratio 21:9.

  • anonymoose

there is some info that tech sites jumped the gun on and caused confusion for this phone. even gsm reported first this wont have 5g in USA and that its ufs 2, but then removed that. the price is eu priceand some say itll be less than 1000 usd. nothing is officially announced. even the press release they sourced in their price article now has L4 price only. giving that xperia 1 launcehd with 950 and some phone retailers claim the same price. it makes sense for it to match it.

Xperia 1 II: great phone, but way too expensive.

Xperia 10 II: great phone and a competitive price, I think it's a very good midranger.

I think GSMArena should have added a size choice for the Xperia 1 II (similar to what they have done for the Xperia 10 II): The Xperia 1 II is... Too big for me (I want a compact flagship).
