|Sony Xperia Pro-I|
Sony is making a strong comeback with the Xperia Pro-I, a smartphone that sees itself primarily as a camera.
It has been some time since Sony last released a smartphone, believing that the Japanese manufacturer can hear everything, even from thousands of kilometers away. The latter recently announced the arrival of the Sony Xperia Pro-I, a smartphone that is seen as a technological showcase, especially in terms of photography with a partnership with Zeiss.
A SONY XPERIA PRO-I THAT DARE TO SELL LIKE A CAMERA
Newly released, the Sony Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III will make people happy, especially with promotions such as Blacks Friday or even around Christmas. However, Sony has decided to bring the Sony Xperia Pro-I to the global market, a smartphone that doesn’t know which foot to dance to.
Indeed, Sony sells this Xperia Pro-I primarily as a camera even if the latter is integrated into a smartphone chassis. Moreover, potential buyers of this product will be able to find an SoC Snapdragon 888 5G from Qualcomm, an OLED panel in 21: 9 format with a definition of 3840 × 1644 for size of 6.5 inches without forgetting its refresh rate. of 120 Hz.
At the same time, this SoC will be accompanied by 12 GB of RAM as well as 512 GB of internal storage. The latter is still expandable using a microSD card. To support the heavy power demands of the Sony Xperia Pro-I, a 4,500 mAh battery is built-in and it can recharge quickly using a 30-watt quick charge. Such performance will allow this smartphone to exploit the full potential of the photo and video part.

I IN TRIBUTE TO SONY’S RANGE OF CAMERAS
This surname does not come out of a magic hat. Then I simply come from the name of the cameras of the Japanese manufacturer with the interchangeable lens without mirror Alpha as well as the cameras. At the same time, the Sony Xperia Pro-I has an Exmor RS-like image sensor with a phase detection auto.
According to Sony’s statements regarding the one-inch 20-megapixel photo sensor, among other things, it has incredible performance even in low light, also has a high dynamic range, and will be able to create beautiful bokeh.
However, according to a DPReview media report, Sony is only using half of the sensor. That is, the 20-megapixel 24mm sensor that has a dual aperture of f2.0 and f / 4.4 would not be fully exploited. The media indicates that in reality, users will only be able to use twelve megapixels.
To manage all the imagery of the Sony Xperia Pro-I, the manufacturer has equipped its smartphone with a BIONZ X processor, which is also the one found in the Sony A9. The addition of such a processor dedicated to the image allows, among other things, to achieve bursts of up to 20 frames per second, in itself, as does one of its colleagues, the Sony Xperia 1 III. In addition, this smartphone, the Xperia Pro-I, is one of the few smartphones to offer such fast autofocus and to follow the eyes of human beings in real-time, whether in 4K video at 120 frames per second as in Photo.
Next to the main sensor, Sony has integrated a twelve-megapixel 16mm sensor with an aperture at f / 2.2, a twelve-megapixel 50mm sensor with an aperture at f / 2.4, and a final ToF sensor, for the depth of field. The sensors have a glass designed in collaboration with the company Zeiss, very famous in the world of video and photography.
A SMARTPHONE THAT WILL NOT BE INTENDED FOR EVERYBODY
We can not hide it, with such high-end components and a very strong belonging to photography, this Sony Xperia Pro-I sold for € 1,800 will not be intended for everyone. Next to that, there’s the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 for the same price, or even cheaper, the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Still, if you want a smartphone with great photos, this Xperia Pro-I has its place on your shopping list. Pre-orders will begin on October 29, 2021.
