Sony shines the spotlight on the Xperia 5 II's video-capturing capabilities in this short film

Android phones have never really been known for exceptional camera quality when it comes to taking videos, but Sony is setting out to change that. The company's newest phone, the Xperia 5 II, starts shipping next month, and it purports to offer the world’s first 4K HDR 120fps slow-motion movie recording from a smartphone. Now Sony has partnered with a former Ubisoft director to release a short film shot entirely on the Xperia 5 II — and wouldn't you know it, it looks pretty darn good.

Sony Xperia XA2 Android 9 Pie rollout resumes after initially bricking devices
