Sony Xperia PRO-I Aims To Make You A Phone Photography Master With A Massive 1-Inch Lens
Sony is keeping with its commitment to bringing tools to content creators that will enable them to create, capture and share like they never have before. The phone's main camera is powered by Xperia's high speed processing, through a 1.0-type imaging sensor that is said to deliver the speed of Sony's fast Alpha interchangeable lens cameras. There is no doubt that Sony is laying down the gauntlet when it comes to smartphone photography and videography.
The 1.0-type sensor will also include phase detection AF (auto focus), the first in a smartphone. It will feature 315 phase-detection AF points that cover 90% of the frame, as well as Real-time Eye-AF in humans and animals, Real-time tracking, 20fps AF/AE burst shooting, and anti-distortion shutter. All of this will make capturing clean photos even if Fido is darting around the backyard.
All this also translates into improved video quality. Xperia PRO-I is the first phone to offer the ability to shoot in 4K 120fps. The latest Optical SteadyShot will help capture shake-free video while capturing either fast paced footage or slow-motion video at up to 5x.
A 4,500mAh batter will power the phone's Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G mobile processor, along with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of ROM. This should equate into fast performance while giving you enough battery to last through a long photo/video shoot.
The Xperia PRO-I will have a frosted glass back panel, while the front display will be comprised of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. It will have a IP65/68 rating that provides protection against dust and water.
Another notable addition to this phone is the Vlog Monitor that will be made available to work with the Xperia PRO-I. The monitor will allow for Vloggers to use the rear facing camera, while being able to view what they are actually capturing in real time. The Vlog Monitor will be sold as a separate accessory.
All of these features do come a cost, however. The Xperia PRO-I has a price tag of $1800 and is set to become available unlocked in December 2021 at a variety of Sony authorized dealers. The Vlog Monitor should come in around $200.
