Sony will host a new product launch event on September 17 in which it is expected to announce its Sony Xperia 5 II smartphone.

While there are a good three weeks before the device goes official, the folks at Android Headlines have published the Xperia 5 II's specs sheet in all its glory.

Of course, refresh rate capabilities are not everything, and compared to the existing Xperia 1 II, the upcoming Xperia 5 II is tipped to sport a smaller and less sharp screen with a diagonal of 6.1 inches and a Full HD+ resolution presumably matching the 2520 x 1080 pixel count of 2019's Xperia 5. Naturally, the Snapdragon 865 chipset will be paired with a 5G modem. Well ahead of the launch, the rumor mill is actively spilling information on the specs and features of the Xperia 5 II.

The leaked images suggest the volume-rocker buttons be on the left-hand side, while the power button and shutter button sit on the right-hand side. The main shooter is a 12MP unit with f/1.7 aperture, 24mm equivalent lens, with an 82-degree field of view.

The cameras on the Xperia 5 II have been upgraded, though the triple-camera setup on the back looks identical to what the Xperia 1 II has, with Zeiss lenses. However, the Sony Xperia 5 model also reached the users and entered the race with its competitors with its features. For one, Sony has no problem pricing its phones well above its competition. The latter recording mode means you can film slow-motion at 4K HDR, which is rather impressive.

The phone has 158 x 68 x 8 mm overall dimensions. There is also OIS and EIS for video, and Optical SteadyShot - Sony's way of saying hybrid OIS/EIS stabilisation for video.

The smartphone will come equipped with a bigger 4,000mAh battery and USB-PD charging support via the Type-C port at the bottom. With the Xperia 5 ll, the Japanese-giant will be hoping for a better result.
