Yellow King, 14 Feb 2020Xperia 1 has it's own exclusive sensor not shared by anyone.Xperia 1: Imx445, S5K3m3, S5k3m3, S5k4h7
Xperia 5 : imx563, s5k3m3, s5k3m3, s5k4h7
what the hell is that naming scheme? It's more confusing than the sony a6000s
Such an awful shape of display in Xperia 9. Hope it is still in progress and Sony won’t fallow commonplace trends. I have been loving Xperia for camera button, water resistance and angular design. To become successful again they need to keep up with the trend of small edges and bezels without copying after Samsung, Apple etc. Otherwise, Xperia will just lose its identity and eventually end up selling some phones dyed in toxic colors.
VectorR, 14 Feb 2020Hm, if rumors are right then Xperia 1.1 will match the price of S20+ which means no buy for me.It will be much cheaper.
six_tymes, 14 Feb 2020looking forward to seeing reviews on both of these, then ill buy. Jack through dongle and sd is there, anything else?
That phone looks too tall & thin, although Sony sensors are the best the main problem with Sony phones is they are terrible at software, photos from a Sony phone are worse quality than from other manufacturers that use the same Sony sensor.

Anonymous, 14 Feb 2020$900+ ? Still too expensive for an experia. $700 is reasonable price.only the screen is more expensive than flagships from cheap copycat brands that dream to be apple.

They can't do that because their Camera sales will be plummeted since the customer's will buy their phones with the same quality as their camera products.
It's easy to brag about 8K, but one has to look for the gotchas.
- The S20/20+ only do 8K on the telephoto lens, which is less useful than the regular wide angle lens.
- The S20 lineup can only record 8K video for 5 minutes (4k for 10 minutes).
So next time a company claim they can do 8k, I want to know what, if any, are the limitations. Too many bloggers and youtubers just parroting the marketing materials, and provide no actual useful info to the viewers/readers.

I use a samsung S5+ that I bought in late 2014 and the battery still gives me a full day of use.
Had the battery been sealed in it wouldn't be a problem at all.
