Sony shows the new high-end smartphone Xperia PRO-I

With the Xperia PRO-I, Sony is aimed at the target group of demanding photographers and filmmakers – the purchase price is correspondingly high.

Last year, Sony made people sit up and take notice with the Xperia PRO smartphone, which costs around 2,500 euros and which is intended to appeal to a rather small target group with its extensive camera equipment. With the Xperia PRO-I, the successor will come in December, which should also be suitable for demanding photographers and filmmakers. At 1,799 euros it is significantly cheaper than its predecessor, but still very expensive.

There is a rear triple camera with Zeiss technology, the lenses of which offer 12 megapixel resolution each. The Exmor RS main sensor comes from the compact camera RX100 VII and is a generous one inch. It is supposed to let in a lot of light and also has a phase detection autofocus for quick detection of movements.

The other lenses offer a wide angle and a double optical zoom. Video recordings are possible in 4K resolution with up to 120 frames per second. Various audio modes and an additional mono microphone next to the main camera should enable clear voice recording without annoying background and wind noise.

The hardware equipment includes a 6.5-inch OLED display with 4K resolution and 120 Hz, a Snapdragon 888 processor, 12 GB of RAM, 512 GB of expandable data storage, Dolby Atmos, a 3.5-millimeter headset connector and a 4,500 mAh battery that can be quickly charged with 30W. A USB 3.2 Gen 2 connection enables fast image transfer to a PC. The 211 gram housing is protected against dust and water in accordance with IP65 / 68 and has a two-stage release button for the camera on the side.

A new accessory is the VLOG monitor for 199 euros, a 3.5-inch LC display with a magnetic metal holder. This allows video bloggers, for example, to see themselves while filming via the main camera of the smartphone. You can control recordings using the GP-VPT2BT Bluetooth handle, which also costs 199 euros.
