Sony flexes digital camera muscle with maiden 5G phone

Tech group bets on business-grade camera phone for content pros

Mitsuya Kishida, head of Sony smartphone segment Sony Mobile Communications, reveals the first 5G model under the Xperia series.

TOKYO -- Sony said Monday it will soon release a smartphone that combines the speed of fifth-generation communication with the Japanese tech group's strengths in digital photography.

Sony's first 5G phone, the Xperia 1 II, will reportedly sell for around 1,100 euros ($1,200) in Europe. The rollout will coincide with the launch of commercial 5G services in Japan this spring.
