Sony's Xperia 5 II, which was unveiled last month, is now available to pre-order in the U.S. While Sony isn't bundling a pair of its WF-1000XM3 true wireless earbuds with the phone stateside, it is offering a gaming bundle that includes the HyperX Cloud II gaming headset.

The Xperia 5 II gaming bundle, which is priced at $950, will begin shipping on December 4. In addition to the official Sony website, you can now pre-order the flagship phone from Amazon and B&H as well.
The Xperia 5 II comes with a 6.1-inch FHD+ OLED display featuring a 120Hz refresh rate and a 240Hz touch sampling rate. Like the Xperia 1 II, the phone runs on a Snapdragon 865 chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. It has a 12MP triple-camera setup on the back with continuous burst shooting speeds of up to 20fps and the ability to capture 4K HDR slow-motion videos at 120fps. It also comes with front-facing stereo speakers, IP68 water resistance, a 4000mAh battery with 21W fast charging, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, it isn't compatible with 5G networks in the U.S.
