The Sony Xperia Pro camera phone went on sale more than a year ago, but until now, its price was about $2,500. Now various online stores have reduced the prices by $500, but even after that, the price is still very high.
It is now available to buy on the Bhphotovideo.com, Adorama.com, and Amazon.com websites for $1,998. Sony Xperia Pro phone with best camera is designed for professional bloggers. The highlight of the Xperia PRO is a 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED display with a 21:9 aspect ratio that can be used as a camera monitor via HDMI.
In general, the Sony Xperia Pro is similar to the Xperia 1 II (REVIEW), but it has a thicker body and sixteen 5G antennas. To transfer data from the camera to a smartphone, not only USB-C but also an HDMI port is provided.
The hardware is practically identical to that of the Sony Xperia 1 II, right up to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, so the performance cannot quite keep up with current flagships such as the Xiaomi Mi 11 or the Samsung Galaxy S21. There is also a 6.5-inch OLED display with an impressive resolution of 3,840 x 1,644 pixels, a 12 megapixel ultra-wide-angle, wide-angle, and telephoto camera, and a 4,000 mAh battery.
The HDMI port is extremely useful for the target group because it can be used to transfer 4K HDR videos at up to 60 fps from any camera with an HDMI output to the smartphone.
In practice, this means, for example, that the Xperia Pro can be used as an external display – a useful feature, as the high-resolution OLED screen of the smartphone is far superior to the tiniest LCDs of most cameras. This functionality becomes particularly exciting in connection with the 5G modem because videos recorded with a professional camera can be transmitted live.
The Sony Xperia Pro received 512 GB of flash memory versus 256 GB for the Xperia 1 II. For other characteristics, smartphones are copies of each other.
