Sony's next flagship smartphone, a followup to the Xperia 1 II released earlier this year, is the Xperia 5 II.

Like the previous phone, the 5 II is a top-tier flagship with a Snapdragon 865 SoC, but it comes with a smaller screen and finally bumps the display up to a faster refresh rate.

The Xperia 5 II is named similarly to Sony's camera line, so it's pronounced "Xperia five mark two." The display is the main difference from the Xperia 1 II: a 6.1-inch, 2520×1080 OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

The 1 II had a bigger, higher-res display, (a 6.5-inch, 3840×1644 display) but it was only 60Hz.

The Xperia 1 II and 5 II are both genuinely handsome-looking smartphones, and now that the 5 II finally has a 120Hz display, it actually feels like it's in the same league as something like a Galaxy Note 20.

For Sony Mobile, though, that's an improvement.

After lots of cost-cutting, though, Sony Mobile projects it will see its first yearly profit in four years.
