Camera specs for Sony Xperia 1 II has been leaked, comes with 2 sensors from Sony and 2 from Samsung
Sony officially unveiled its Xperia 1 II and Xperia 10 II devices last month and many of its specs are already known. However, there are still a few details that haven't been revealed. Recently, the specs for the Xperia 1 II's camera were leaked, detailing the camera sensors used by the device.
According to GSMArena (via AndroidNext), the rear camera setup of the Sony Xperia 1 II features two Sony cameras and two from Samsung. Its main camera is a 12MP Sony IMX557 sensor (f/1.7) and the other Sony camera is an ultrawide lens, which is a 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor (f/2.2). The third lens is a 12MP telephoto lens (f/2.4) using Samsung's ISOCELL S5K3T2. As for the second Samsung lens, it's used on the front selfie camera, which is an 8MP (f/2.0) Samsung S5K4H7 sensor.

The Sony IMX557 seems to be a new sensor, though it was noted that the model number is similar to the IMX555 used in the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+. Aside from the cameras, it was also mentioned that the Sony 1 II will be using UFS 3.0 storage. It's a fast storage system that gives sequential write speeds of around 220MB/s, so it can save photos taken even faster and possibly allow for higher rates of burst shots.
Sony is expected to start shipping the Xperia 1 II in Q2 2020, but it hasn't been confirmed which countries will be getting the device.
