Sony Xperia 5 II Price and Release Date

In May 2020, Sony unveiled the Xperia II, featuring top-tier photo and video mechanisms akin to its high-end full-frame mirrorless cameras. Priced at N1,200,000 ($1200), the Xperia 1 II set a precedent. Now, with the introduction of the Sony Xperia 5 II, Sony delivers a more creative, compact, and affordable alternative.

Priced at a starting point of N950,000 ($950) in Nigeria, the Xperia 5 II retains impressive features while costing N100,000 less (Updated on the 15th of November 2023). Despite similarities in photos and specs with the Xperia 1 II, the Xperia 5 II sacrifices wireless charging, a 4k display, and a time-of-flight sensor, but it upholds the remarkable auto-focus technology.

Design and Display

The Xperia 5 II, a smaller sibling of the Xperia 1 II, shares the same 21:9 aspect ratio display, ideal for streaming widescreen content. Sporting a 6.1-inch 120Hz HD screen, it’s noticeably smaller and more slender than the Xperia 1 II.

The design, while not the pinnacle of smartphone aesthetics, features a unique Google Assistant button on the side, adding a customizable touch. Positioned alongside a fingerprint scanner, camera shutter button, volume button, and power button, it offers functionality in a compact form.

The Xperia 5 II’s display, although Full HD Plus (1080 x 2520), performs well with a 120Hz refresh rate option, ensuring smooth interactions during gaming and social media use.

Sony Alpha Mirrorless Camera

Equipped with the same camera features as the Xperia 1 II but with improved 120fps video capture, the Xperia 5 II boasts a triple rear camera setup and a single front camera. Expect crisp, high-quality photography with the 12MP ultra-wide shooters.

Sony introduces unique features like 120fps video capture, RAW photo file support, and connectivity to the latest Sony A7SIII camera via USB-C. On the front, an 8MP single camera eliminates the need for a notch, showcasing Sony’s commitment to a sleek design.

Performance and Battery Life

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Chipset processor, 8GB of RAM, and internal storage options of 128GB or 258GB, the Xperia 5 II promises stellar performance. Running on Android 10 OS, it houses a 4000mAh battery with fast-charging capabilities, maintaining Sony’s reputation for efficient battery life.

In conclusion, the Sony Xperia 5 II integrates cutting-edge features, impressive camera capabilities, and robust performance, making it a top-tier choice for those seeking a premium smartphone experience.
