Sony’s cameras have always been the centerpiece features of the Xperia smartphones even if they haven’t always had the greatest success. With the Xperia 1 II, the company promises excellent shots and videos thanks to its improved hardware and processing. And that’s the focus on one of the latest promo videos.
But what we found even more interesting is this short video showcasing how the AI focusing works. A machine learning algorithm takes the data from the 3D ToF sensor on the back to lock onto the subject fast and accurately. It uses the topographical map made by the ToF camera to gain depth perception, separate the subject from the background and decide where to focus, which also means that the autofocus should work flawlessly even in dimly-lit conditions.
And if you want to learn a bit more about the handset as a whole, you can watch this hands-on video from Sony. It talks not only cameras but also 5G connectivity, performance, display and battery life.
