Sony’s new camera phone comes with a gigantic sensor

Sony’s new high-end camera phone, which, according to the Japanese manufacturer’s tradition, puts the bar high in terms of image capture capabilities, may soon hit stores. The Sony Xperia Pro-I is more of a compact camera with a built-in mobile phone, at least as evidenced by the fact that the primary sensor used in the device has been moved from the RX100 VII compact camera.

The round one-inch Exmor RS sensor contains a total of twenty million 2.4-micron pixels (the images captured by the camera are actually only 12 megapixels), which may seem small compared to the trend of megapixel-hairs in recent years, but thanks to the large pixels camera system is capable of capturing images and videos with a much more detailed and wider dynamic range – especially in low light conditions.

The interesting thing about the Zeiss lens system is that the main camera’s 24mm focal length lens can physically work with two apertures (f2.0 and f4.4), according to Sony, without software tricks, and last but not least, to change the depth of field to suit the subject. The 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle (16mm) camera with f2.2 aperture and the 50mm telephoto system work at f2.4 aperture with twice the optical zoom.

The Xperia Pro-I also features Sony’s A9 Series Professional Camera Imaging Circuit (BIONZ X), which allows the system to take up to 20 shots per second, and the camera’s autofocus is among the fastest in the industry, and the system’s sensors are they cover almost 90% of the image area, which also significantly improves the focus accuracy. In terms of video capabilities, it is worth mentioning that the device is capable of capturing 120 frames per second in 4K mode with lossless image processing.

The mobile capabilities of the new top-of-the-line Sony also leave little to be desired, so the Xperia Pro-I comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 system processor (including 5G connectivity, of course), along with 12GB of system memory and 512GB of storage – the latter with microSDXC cards expandable. The feature of the mobile remained the unusually wide format (21: 9), 120 Hz, 3840×1644 pixel resolution OLED panel. Interestingly, a second display specifically designed for vloggers will also be available as an accessory for the mobile, which can be snapped onto the back of the camera.

In determining the price level of the Sony Xperia Pro-I, the Japanese company presumably took as a basis that the Xperia Pro-I is a real 2 in 1 solution, ie one gets a percussive compact camera and a high-end mobile phone at the same time for money, at least it can be hard otherwise explain the suggested retail price of $ 1,800, which is otherwise the price of Samsung’s high-end, flexible display mobile, the Z Fold 3, and $ 200 more than the most expensive iPhone currently available, 1 TB of storage included on the price tag of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
