The digicam specs for the Sony Xperia 2 (or Xperia 1.1, as some suppose it may be referred to as) have been a little bit of a thriller thus far, however a brand new leak suggests they’re going to be very acquainted, as they could possibly be the identical because the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus.
This comes from Weibo leaker Zackbuks, who has been posting fairly prolifically in regards to the new Sony telephone for a number of days now. It isn’t clear how the poster obtained the data, however they appear effectively revered as a Weibo leaker and notably appropriately predicted the Sony Xperia 5.
Zackbuks’ fundamental prediction is that “the brand new Xperia’s digicam system is similar because the Galaxy S20 +”. The Samsung telephone has 12MP fundamental, 64MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom, and 12MP ultra-wide cameras, that are joined by a depth sensor. It is value declaring that the leaker suggests the Sony telephone’s ultra-wide digicam could possibly be completely different, although.
AndroidNext, which reported on this info, suggests these sensors might be from Samsung, not Sony, however we won’t discover any intel to again this up. Sony might be essentially the most prolific smartphone digicam sensor producer, however Samsung itself made most the Galaxy S20 tech. If Sony had been to make use of Samsung’s tech as a substitute of its personal, it could point out the corporate actually is attempting to mimic the Galaxy S20 collection.
That is not all that Sony could possibly be copying from Samsung both, as Zackbuks says “will Sony do an 8K HDR recording?”. The power to file movies in 8K decision is a giant promoting level of the Galaxy S20 collection, though the Xiaomi Mi 10 has the characteristic too and it’ll truly be launched earlier than the Samsung telephones (at the least in China).
Lastly, Zackbuks states the Sony Xperia 2 (or Xperia 1.1), will launch on February 24 by way of a web-based occasion. We knew Sony was internet hosting a web-based launch for one thing after it cancelled its February 24 press convention at MWC 2020, so this is smart.
We’re anticipating the brand new Sony flagship on the occasion, both the Xperia 2 or Xperia 1.1, and we may additionally see a Sony Xperia 5 Plus in keeping with some sources (sure, Sony actually has no consistency with its Xperia naming system). TechRadar might be reporting on that occasion when it occurs, so keep tuned for all of the information, opinions and evaluation.
