Sony Xperia 1 II to get night mode, eye AF in ultrawide camera in first update

Sony is reportedly working overtime to bring a few features to the Xperia 1 II's cameras in an update to be seeded right after its launch.

It will bring the eye autofocus that makes sure human eyes are always in focus to the 16mm ultrawide camera. Additionally the update will enable 1080p at 120fps slow-motion video recording and 4K video at 60fps. Finally and likely the most important bit is the night mode for the main 24mm camera.
