Sony Xperia 1 II made its debut in February this year as the brand’s first Snapdragon 865-powered flagship phone. It was made available in black and purple colour options but last month, news filtered in that the flagship was getting a new colourway.
The third colour option which is a Mirror Lake Green variant is billed to be launched in Japan on October 30. However, the company has now revealed the device will go official earlier than in Japan in Taiwan on October 20 (via).
As stated, the model comes with a cool Mirror Lake Green colour option. Apart from the new colour variant, the Xperia 1 II variant will also come with 12GB of RAM onboard. For reference, the flagship is only available in 8GB RAM with the storage option split between 256GB for the international variant and 128GB for the Japanese variant. We expect this model to ship with 256GB storage.
Apart from the new paint job and larger RAM size, the other specifications are the same as those of the earlier version. To recall, the Xperia 1 II features a 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED screen that comes with a 21:9 aspect ratio, making it taller than other flagship phones available in the market. Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and the storage is expandable up to 1TB.
The phone features a triple-camera setup on the back which is developed by the engineers who made Sony A7 III and other popular mirrorless cameras. The phone’s camera setup includes three 12-megapixel sensors — wide, ultra-wide, and zoom.
The price in Taiwan for this 12GB option is yet to be announced but it will sell for JPY 124,000 (~$1170) in Japan.
