Although the Mobile World Congress was canceled, the most important firms in the world have decided to make their streaming releases to make their new products known to the world.

A phone that wants to conquer you for the photograph

Although this new Sony equipment is much more beautiful and refined compared to previous models, the firm still has a very strong design line, and we see a high-end with less used frames compared to the proposals of Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, etc.

Also, the fingerprint reader is on the side, something that does not extract us coming from Sony, but that is not understood by having an OLED panel.

Where s there are interesting surprises is in the camera, because like Nokia, Sony has collaborated with the signature specialized in photography, Zeiss, which has signed the cameras of this phone, which in theory can bring us much better photographic results than any another smartphone from Sony.

On the other hand, we must not forget that for this phone there is also the collaboration of the Sony photography department and the smartphone department, a collaboration that was born last year, and that little by little it seems that it could give good results.

The bad thing is that at the moment we do not know its photographic quality, although we applaud that in versatility Sony has not lagged behind its competitors.

Sound matters

The high-end tend to be phones that are required in the sound section, and the Xperia 1 II seems to be fully compliant. And it is that we not only have a double stereo speaker compatible with Dolby Atmos, but it offers Sony 360 audio technology, and it also relies on artificial intelligence to improve the frequency and bite rate in real time.

Another good news is that the phone s includes the 3.5mm jack, an element that is in extinction in most smartphones of this range.

There is also a Pro version

Along with the Xperia 1 II the Xperia Pro has also been presented, which we can say is a version with small changes of this Xperia although in the end its name does not indicate that they are from the same series.

The specifications between both devices are very similar, it changes in that this version arrives with more storage and 2 GB more of RAM, and of course in that this Pro model is also 5G and has micro HDMI to use it as a secondary screen in video cameras professional.

And it is that Sony says that you can use the Xperia Pro to use it as an external monitor of its professional video cameras, because in addition to the USB-C it also has the micro HDMI port.

It is also compatible with 5G of millimeter wave, which means that this device can reach the maximum speed available for these networks.

Price and availability

It is very likely that this device does not arrive in Mexico because the firm no longer bets on our country in smartphones, however, other markets arrive in spring, at which time its price is also revealed.

Regarding the Xperia Pro, it is still in development and no details on the price or availability have been given.
