Shakalaka boom, 14 Apr 2021It does, the Oneplus 9 pro can do it already. replied to your comment below.

but if you're talking about 4k@120fps screen, then nobody has 4k screens while Sony fans already are enjoying this for over 6 years

1m2 and 5m2 already have been shooting 4k@120fps since last year and nobody was talkin.
Now you're saying "1+ can already shoot 4k@120fps on SD888", but Sony did it on SD865 a good year ago

What's with Sony and classic bezels? One thing I've noticed is that they even avoid showing their screens on pics

iPhone has 3 cameras, and all three take pictures of the same white balance, texture and color quality. Any other phone? Xperia 1 lineup.

Install filmic pro, or mcpro24fps for video shooting. iPhone gives you full manual access to all the cameras. Any other phone can do that?

Sony, LG.
Samsung, OnePlus, xiaomi don't even have access to the telephoto lens for the 3rd party software as if the lens didn't exist. Samsung doesn't have autofocus on wide angle lens. That's considered TECHNOLOGIES?
I'll tell you why: because it was Sony who actually developed the camera2api software protocol interface.

Remember that when you try to do something out-of-the-box with your phone; older Sony phones can easily be flashed with custom software and still used today - my xperia zr from 2012 is on Android 9, Xperia xz premium from 2017 is on Android 11. Huawei? Blocked bootloader! Stay tuned...

iPhone.

Name another phone that has 3 cameras taking images of the same size?

iPhone.

Don't even compare Sony to shitsung or xiaomi - they don't know there's such thing as 3rd party software. Because actually camera2api on Android was developed by Sony.

mcpro24fps or filmic pro don't even see telephoto camera on samsung, oppo, vivo, oneplus, as if it didn't exist. Enjoy the stock cameras on these phones with no chance to unlock their full potential.

LG: I am moving out, who will keep feature-packing?
Sony: I got your back...3.5mm jack for life.

Yes, Sony Xperia 1 iii will beat the Mi 11 Ultra if you are a xtreme professional photographer and videographer. Oh yes, don't forget the upcoming Zenfone 8 series cuz that will kill the Mi 11 Ultra easilly.

You think some "Has-Been" company like Sony is going to challenge the Mi 11 Ultra?

Why can't sony come up with a cohert naming scheme? Maybe I'm just stupid, but I never know whether I'm dealing with a cheap, midrange or flagship phone.
Simple idea

Cheap phone: Xperia Lite
Midrange phone: Xperia Plus
Flagship hone: Xperia Pro

Easy

Computational is needed in JPEG image processing to compensate hardware limitation in a smartphone. I hope 1iii added a bit of it.

I can say camera hardware in Mi11U are 2 years ahead of 1iii. See what I did there? Cant wait for those two to be compared.
