Sony Xperia 1 II is perhaps one of smartphones the most interesting among those arriving in the next few months: the japanese company has decided to insist on its guidelines in terms of design, without the adoption of any notch, and preferring, once again, two thin frames above and below the screen. But, above all, has opted again for a format 21:9, particularly stretched, and then equipped with a budget camera, and it looks very promising, also the software side.

By colleagues from XdaDeveloper comes today another information: it seems that Sony has also thought of the gamer. How? With a special mode that lets you play holding the smartphone in charge, but without using the battery, thus risking damage and generating an overheating of the device.

The option is called “H. S. Power Control“, and once activated (through the on-off switch that you can find in the options of Game Mode), if the terminal is in charge, will go to directly exploit the energy supplied from the power supply, without charging the battery. A clever idea, that at the time of launch of Xperia 1 II – for 1.199 euros, and now it should not take – will be available right away. And who knows, in the future, perhaps they could benefit, as well as other models.
