Sony has announced its latest Xperia Pro smartphone. Sony Xperia PRO-I, in which the “I” in its name means “Imaging”, draws attention with its 1.0 inch camera sensor with phase detection autofocus support. Here are the other Sony Xperia PRO-I features and price.
Sony Xperia PRO-I Features
Sony Xperia PRO-I is powered by a Snapdragon 888 chipset combined with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB of internal storage. Unlike most Android flagships, the device lets you expand your existing storage up to 1TB with microSD cards. Also, the product has a 4500mAh battery and comes with a 30W power adapter, which many manufacturers no longer provide. Xperia PRO-I has a 6.5-inch 4K OLED display that supports 120Hz refresh rate. The 3.5mm headphone jack, which we don’t see on many devices anymore, offers Sony’s LDAC and DSEE technologies that aim to give the best possible sound.
On the camera side, the primary 1-inch camera is borrowed from the Alpha RX100 VII, but Sony states that this hardware is optimized for the Xperia PRO-I. Most of the sensor will be used to shoot 12MP images with a pixel size of 2.4µm. Also, f/2. 0 to f/4. You also get an Exmor RS sensor with a 24mm fixed aperture lens ranging from 0 to 0. Other units include a pair of 12MP sensors and one with 16mm focal length and F/2. It can capture ultra-wide-angle images with 2 apertures. The other is 2x optical zoom and F/2. A telephoto unit with 4 apertures.
According to Sony, Xperia PRO-I supports professional-grade Real-Time Eye autofocus, which detects animals and people. This autofocus feature also has 315 points that cover 90 percent of your frame. To make image capture easier, Sony has equipped its flagship with a two-stage shutter button, one of which has a textured surface. The other key is circular and runs the Videoography Pro application. As for video, the Xperia PRO-I can effortlessly shoot in 4K at up to 120 FPS for 5x slow motion clips. Sony will also sell a standalone Vlog Monitor to vloggers. This accessory has a 3.5-inch 720p screen and will offer a variety of modes for shooting video.
Sony Xperia PRO-I Price
Xperia PRO-I carries a very high price tag of $ 1,800. On the other hand, for this price you might think you’d get an Alpha RX100 VII camera running on Android. The device, which will be available for pre-order as of October 28, will meet users in December.
