The Sony Xperia Pro-I is a continuation of the limited Xperia Pro series. This time with an emphasis on customers who are good at photography and cinematography.
The Sony Xperia Pro-I is a really impressive phone. Regardless of whether you look at its design or characteristics, you will be delighted. The front of this smartphone is made of Gorilla Glass Victus glass. At the back is Gorilla Glass and the frame is made of aluminum. Quality of workmanship – a clean ten.
The dimensions of the phone are 166 x 72 x 8.9 mm. The device is waterproof and dust resistant according to the IP65 / 68 certificate (up to 1.5m 30 minutes).
The display is really top-notch. It is a 6.5-inch OLED screen with a billion colors. The screen refresh rate is 120 Hz. The resolution is a bright 1644×3840 pixel, and the aspect ratio is 20: 9.
The device is equipped with the most powerful Qualcomm SM8350 Snapdragon 888 5G chipset. No less powerful Adreno 660 is in charge of graphics.
The phone comes with 12 GB of RAM and as much as 512 GB of internal memory. It is possible to expand via a MicroSD card, but there you have to make a choice – either another SIM card or a memory card. Android 11 is installed on the smartphone, which simply “slides” on this phone.
The cameras of the new Sony Xperia Pro-I phone are great. The Xperia Pro-I is the first phone ever with a 1-inch camera sensor. The phone has a built-in Exmore RS sensor, the same one used in the Sony RX100 VII camera, adapted for smartphones.
At the back is a 12 MP main camera with Real-time Eye autofocus. There is also a 12 MP telephoto camera and 2x optical zoom. The ultra-wide camera is also 12 MP and there is a TOF 3D in charge of depth in photos.
On the front is an 8 MP selfie camera that takes really great photos. The rear system can record 4K video at 24/25/30/60/120 fps HDR or Full HD at 30/60/120/240 fps. The front camera is capable of recording 1080p video at 30 fps.
The battery of this phone has a capacity of 4500 mAh. Fast charging of 30 W is supported, and if people from Sony are to be believed, 50% of the battery capacity is charged in just 30 minutes.
A fingerprint reader is mounted on the side, and the device also has stereo speakers from Dolby Atmos – which produce really great sound.
All this has its price. Sales of Sony’s new flagship device will begin in December 2021 and the price will be around 1,800 euros.
