So it's practicaly what should Xperia 5 be in a first place - bigger battery, better sensors, a headphone jack.
I wonder if it would fit the same case since everything but a "jack hole" looks pretty similar.
This time I certanly won't be buying that crap Sony flip case that caused so many scratches on my handset ... hard plastic ... gj.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2020Too late, people don't want to buy 865 at the end of this yearWhy not? It's depending on the price. If it's right, I could live with minor difference of performance. I guess it"s hardly noticable.
video recording in 4K HDR at 120 fps, 120hz? If it is true this phone will be a beast
120Hz refresh rate and 4000mAh battery alongside a 3.5mm audio jack? Things are looking pretty exciting here.
Nick Tagataka, 28 Aug 2020Practicality of 4K120 recording on a smartphone camera aside, this is actually a very impressi... moreI agree. 8K on a phone is completely unnecessary in a phone for now. Unlike shooting in a real camera with good lenses and a large sensor capturing more detail with natural bokeh. In a phone it just looks like very sharp processed footage. It's not too bad but it's just unnecessary.
Eugenefing, 28 Aug 2020Wow!! They really need new wallpaper, design is 2/10Many people would disagree with you. Sony always had the minimalistic look so the wallpaper is fitting for a Sony phone.
Not flashy and colourful like some other phones might try to do.

The Xperia 1ii exists. The Xperia 5 lineup is smaller than the Xperia 1 lineup.
68mm. That's nice. The middle ground between compact and phablet. Like the old Xperia Z2 and phones in that era that weren't a plus or a compact version.

More specifically, a compact version of the Xperia 1 II. If you want the bigger one, check that out instead, or other Ultra/Plus phones for that big screen.
If can record 4K, 10bits, HLG @ 120fps that's insane, more useful that choppy 8K video.
KebabSLO, 28 Aug 2020Price: 1.1k€Unlikely since this is a lite version of the xperia 1 II so probably around 800-900 $
As perfect as this sounds, considering this has a 120hz refresh rate I'd expect the price to be £999 or £899, which is a 200 increase from the 699 the original Xperia 5 was. These phones are getting too expensive
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2020They fixed the battery and jack problems, but one deal-breaker remains: Narrow, useless screen... morei have a sony xperia 5 with same aspect ratio, its actually super comfortable to hold with one hand, and great to browse content. Only thing is a lot of video content is not adapted to it but its not a big deal. I have the ipad pro also and same thing for content consumption not everything is adapted to the aspect ratio but it works great.. very sad that people dont try new things but are expert armchair critics, certainly with sony
