The Xperia 1 II (Mark II) is Sony’s new flagship smartphone. It will feature the Snapdragon 865 processor with 5G connectivity, a 4.000mAh battery with wireless charging, and USB Type-C connector. It comes with IP65/68 water resistance and Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on both sides.

When it comes to memory, the phone has 8GB RAM, 256GB internal storage and it supports microSDXC memory cards with up to 1TB capacity. Good thing is that, unlike most competitors, Sony decided to keep the 3.5mm audio jack. The phone also features two front-facing stereo speakers. The dimensions of the phone are 6.5″ × 2.8″ × 0.3″ and it weighs 6.4oz.
