Sony has officially launched its £799 Xperia 5 II smartphone, which comes with 5G support and 4K slow-motion video recording.
The new device, which is an update of the original Xperia 5 released last year, has been designed for photographers who want to 'capture cinematic masterpieces'.
It includes the world’s first 4K HDR 120fps slow-motion video recording in a smartphone, which can can capture and playback up to 5x slow-motion when recorded at 24 frames per second.
The phone is also 'built for gaming' with a 120Hz refresh rate – meaning the display refreshes 120 times a second for smooth on-screen action.
Xperia 5 II is described by the Japanese firm as the most compact Xperia ever, measuring 2.6 inches in width and just 0.3 inches in depth.
It's been designed specifically for one-handed use – with a softer shape on the corners to fit more comfortably in the hand.
The phone is available to pre-order in black and blue in the UK and Ireland and will be shipping from autumn 2020.
