The new Sony mid-range smartphone, Xperia 10 II, is scheduled to be released in May. It is certain that they will be released before the new Xperia flagship, Xperia 1 II. And this time, a very interesting comparison image that is said to have been taken with the Xperia 10 II camera was posted on Reddit.
“Night Mode” is a new feature that was featured in Sony’s new mid-range smartphone, Xperia 10 II. The photos taken in this mode have been released. You can see the difference between the normal shooting mode.
The one on the left is in normal mode and the one on the right is in night mode.
Not only the night mode is brighter, but the details are naturally reproduced.
When you crop the image, the difference is even more noticeable.

As you can see, the details of the extremely bright and dark areas are cut off in the image shot in the Auto mode, while the shot in the night mode is reproduced quite nicely in the same area.
By the way, according to this poster, the night mode installed in this Xperia 10 II is different from other models.
Although the details are unknown. There seems to be a fundamental difference that the Xperia 10 II uses AI. While other models night mode superimposes multiple images.
According to Sony, this night mode is not the same as other manufacturers, it is faster, and it does not work by stacking images, they use AI.
The Night mode features of Xperia 10 II is not included in Xperia 1 II
As far as the official page of Xperia 1 II is concerned,. The night mode features of Xperia 10 II are not included in Xperia 1 II.
After the release, the new feature called “low light mode” will be installed.
Speaking from the specs, the Xperia 1 II ‘s low-light mode should be superior to the night mode of Xperia 10 II. But there is a possibility that it will be used for different purposes.
The night mode of the Xperia 10 II seems to have the concept of suppressing overexposure and underexposure by adjusting the brightness and dynamic range.
The low-light shooting seems to focus on the speed of focus and noise reduction in the dark. And bright images with a large sensor.
The camera samples of the Xperia 10 II have no comparison with other models. So I can not comment on anything. But I feel that it is likely to receive good reception as a camera from the mid-range model.
