Sony has been teasing the new Sony Xperia Pro phone for more than a year and now it officially unveiled the new device.
The Xperia Pro is a $2,500 flagship phone but not for regular, day to day use.
Instead, Sony aimed it at video professionals and those who stream events – it’s fitted with a four-way beamforming antenna capable of picking up stable 5G signals.
If you look at the Xperia Pro specs, it’s clear that it’s just an improvd Xperia 1 ii built specifically for that niche – so that might justify the price.
It has a 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED display, a 4000 mAh battery and uses the Snapdragon 865 chipset. Since it’s meant to go in the field, it also comes with IP65/68 water resistance.
Even more, the Xperia Pro is designed as a companion piece for the new Sony A1.
This is a $6,500 camera with a full-frame 50MP sensor designed for professional video-makers, promising to capture 50.1 megapixel photos with autofocus and auto-exposure enabled at up to 30 FPS…and 8K video!
If you’re one of them, the Sony AI spec sheet might make you consider it over the reliable Canon R5.
