Interview excerpts from Sony’s Xperia 1 II development team
On the lack of super slow motion recording:
We designed the video recording features in the Xperia 1 II around the needs of cinematographers and other video creators. The vast majority of the time they were using slow motion at around 4 to 5 times slower than real time. 960fps can’t be used for recording long scenes, so it was decided that 120fps (shot at up to 2K resolution) was enough.
Smithravi, 10 Jun 2020Engadget Japan’s interview is quite insightful and there are a number of other things to note.... moreThis is awesome, but I am curious how is the hater will trolling these until it looking so bad.
OMG!! Sony is getting a lot of my money this year. Xperia 1ii, at some point going to finally go for an OLED TV and PlayStation 5.
Guys, where is the battery review? If this clocks over 90, pretty decent but I have alternatives, if over 100 i'll take this up. Main appeals are the camera and screen. My primary uses for phone is the camera, since covid has adjusted my lifestyle, i use the laptop more frequently for web and video.
You guys, reviewers, don't know nothing about photography... Many times confirmed, now again.
Who says hardware button induces more shake than tapping the screen? You? Oh, sorry...
Smithravi, 10 Jun 2020Here is the response from Yuki Ikeda, a member of the System Design Department:
The decisio... moreSo they planned on removing it and then adding it back.
Now just advertise it and get in with the carriers better on to of that smart ploy if they really want the sales. Or survival.

Engadget Japan’s interview is quite insightful and there are a number of other things to note. We typically don’t get this much transparency when companies talk about their phones.
1. The Sony Xperia 1 II has a 4K resolution OLED panel that runs at 60Hz refresh rate but has a “Motion Blur Reduction” feature that produces a “90Hz equivalent” refresh rate experience. What this feature does is “increase the voltage in time with the activation of the OLED pixels when displaying an image.” Sony says this has the advantage of avoiding the “pixel looking gray” which can happen when “[sending] the instruction to activate a pixel” as “it takes some time to switch from black to white.” XDA’s Dylan Raga posits that this might help reduce black smearing and motion blur when scrolling with black text on white backgrounds showing, which is a common problem on high refresh rate OLED panels. Motion Blur Reduction is active at all times when the feature is enabled, even when watching a movie.
2. 70-80% of users who purchased the Xperia 1 were satisfied with the display performance, which is what Sony used to justify keeping the 21:9 aspect ratio (a “CinemaWide display”). Sony says that over 50% of Netflix movie content is optimized for 21:9 and a few games like Call of Duty Mobile are also optimized.
3. The Xperia 1 II can be set to a white point of D55 or D65 so colors of a photo can be faithfully reproduced before printing them out. This is aimed at pro photographers.
1. The T* after the “ZEISS” logo on the camera bump is “related to the special coating applied to the lenses.” This coating “minimizes flare and ghosting.”
2. The 16mm and 24mm sensors on the Xperia 1 II use a Dual Photo Diode (Dual PD) sensor which allows 100% of the pixels on the sensor to be used for phase-detect autofocus. This results in faster and more accurate autofocus, and is how the Xperia 1 II achieves its “world-first 20fps burst shooting with AF and AE.” Sony decided to keep the sensors at 12MP because choosing a higher resolution would affect the sensor’s readout speed, reducing the high-speed shooting and autofocus performance, and also “prevents the issue of the resolution changing when changing the magnification.”
3. Photography Pro is a separate camera app that is coming in a future software update. It will have more settings like manual shutter speed exposure settings, more white balance presets, and the aforementioned 20fps burst shooting mode.
1. Sony’s 360 Reality Audio feature was developed for surround-sound systems with 13+ channels but Sony created a virtual surround sound system using only 2 channels on the Xperia 1 II. Amazon Music HD, Tidal, and Deezer have 1000+ titles that are compatible with 360 Reality Audio.
2. The speakers have been improved from the Xperia 1 –> 1 II. The speakers are now on front, improving the L/R channel balance. Sony also increased the cabinet size, added more powerful amps, and collaborated with Sony Pictures and Sony Music to tune the audio.
3. Sony added a wind noise reduction feature when recording video.
Here is the response from Yuki Ikeda, a member of the System Design Department:
The decision was made to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the Xperia XZ2. We made that decision based on the priority we were placing on improving the design of the phone and the fact that wireless earphones were becoming more common.
The reason for bringing the 3.5mm headphone jack back for the Xperia 1 II is from the same mindset we had when developing the Xperia 1, which is to say “giving people a smartphone that they will love.” We also felt it was indispensable for viewing entertainment-related content and for playing games.
saved, 10 Jun 2020I also have an old Nokia with an oled screen which didn't burn out too.
Do you know why?
You... moreI have an 808 as well. My s1 also never had it.
Out of 20ish oled devices between my family only like 4 has maybe a little. And 2 of those were purchased that way.
So what we do know is that oled burn in is extremely exaggerated.
And lcd is not immune to issues and failures.
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2020I have a 2009 omnia HD with zero burn in.
Lcd at white point uses less power. We all know th... moreI also have an old Nokia with an oled screen which didn't burn out too.
Do you know why?
You can't deny the fact that the new OLEDs burn out, and I can't deny that the old ones don't.
Well we all know why the new OLEDs burn out, but you have an unique chance to explain to us all why the older OLEDs don't.
Cons: 4K screen has little pratical benifit, next they say 4k 60p is not available and selfie CAM has no 4K capability.
what's the use to shoot in 4K the device is not capable to render it in 4K. If they say the first point is valid and other Cons aren't a con is it ?
