The Xperia 5 II Could Be Sony’s First Smartphone With A 120Hz Screen

Despite the timing of the leak, the Xperia 5 II wouldn’t arrive at IFA. Instead, Sony is reportedly aiming for a September 17th debut. The main question is the price. It’s likely to cost less than its $1,200 counterpart, but it’s not certain by how much.

How does Sony follow up its premium Xperia 1 II smartphone? By offering a lower-cost model that could offer some advancements of its own. Android Headlines claims to have images and specs for an Xperia 5 II that would center around a 6.1-inch, 120Hz OLED display.

Sony’s first phone with a 120Hz screen. You’d have to settle for ‘just a Full HD+ resolution (read: tall 1080p), but you might prefer it over the Xperia 1 II if responsiveness matters more than 4K.

The design would mimic the Xperia 1 II by restoring the 3.5mm headphone jack absent on the original Xperia 5. Sony is apparently betting on wired audio being a selling point in an era when many manufacturers want you to be happy with Bluetooth or a dongle.

You’d otherwise get much of the same performance as the more expensive device, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You’d have three 12MP cameras for main, ultra-wide, and 3X telephoto shots, with Zeiss lenses and 4K 120FPS video recording. You’d also get a Snapdragon 865 chip, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and 5G support.

That difference could be vital when 120Hz support is relatively commonplace in phones like the Galaxy S20. Sony is arriving half a year later and might face stiff opposition when the technology is no longer a novelty.
