The brand-new flagship Xperia 1 II smartphone from Sony is now available to pre-order from O2 online on O2’s customisable plans. 

The Xperia 1 II packs the latest cutting-edge technologies and 5G connectivity alongside a camera developed with Sony´s Alpha camera engineers to capture moments that simply no other smartphone can. Up to 20fps continuous burst shooting, complete with autofocus and auto exposure, means that the Xperia 1 II can take literally hundreds of shots in mere seconds. Meanwhile, a triple 12MP wide-angle lens, 12MP ultra-wide angle lens, and 12MP telephoto lens work in tandem alongside an 8MP selfie camera to deliver a sharp finish to photos regardless of the lighting conditions.

Enjoy movies as intended and experience a truly cinematic aspect ratio with a stunning 21:9 CinemaWide 6.5” 4K HDR OLED display, featuring new motion blur reduction technology that reduces the in-between frame lag for a clearer image quality. Customers can also appreciate the finest audio quality tuned in collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment, with front stereo speakers and new 360 Reality Audio for a multi-dimensional surround sound experience.

A selection of tariffs are available from O2 for the Xperia 1 II, starting from £39.37 per month for 1GB data with a £30.00 upfront payment.1

What’s more, customers can also exclusively claim a free pair of Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones worth £329.00 on any orders placed until Wednesday 17th June.2

O2’s customisable plans allows customers to get the devices they have their heart set on at a more affordable rate, with the ability to choose how much they want to pay upfront, the length of their Device Plan, selecting anywhere between three and 36 months (in one-month increments), as well as having the option to flex their data allowance up or down every month to suit their needs.

O2’s 5G network is now live in 30 towns and cities, with plans to roll out to 50 by summer 2020.
