The Sony Xperia Pro-I is the sequel to the limited Xperia Pro series, this time only for photography and video-savvy consumers. It’s the first phone to feature a 1-inch Sony sensor, it can output 12-bit RAW images and offers a variety of camera apps to take advantage of the advanced camera system.
Xperia Pro-I (where I stand for Imaging) has some notable updates over the first Pro – it’s a water-resistant Xperia phone with a 6.5″ 4K OLED display that now supports a refresh rate 120Hz The chip has been upgraded to Snapdragon 888, has improved cameras and lenses, but somehow the phone’s profile is now thinner and the whole weight lighter.
The Sony Xperia Pro-I is not a dual-glass smartphone as is popular these days. Sony has made the metal frame thick and ribbed for a better grip. Sony designers have created one of the best smartphones ever.
The Xperia Pro-I is water resistant like any other Xperia-branded flagship. The screen is protected by the latest Gorillas Victus glass.
The new Xperia Pro-I is as big as the Xperia 1 III; The sides are similarly thick (8.3mm versus 8.9mm), but the new model weighs 25g more, likely due to the new camera tech crammed inside.
Compared to the original Pro, the Pro-I is shorter, narrower, and thinner, but it has the same 6.5-inch 4K OLED display. This is an improvement over the previous one. It’s a 6.5-inch OLED display with 1B color and 120Hz refresh rate. The monitor fully supports the BT.2020 color space. Sony’s screen quality can be classified as the best on the market today.
Above the display is where you’ll find the 8MP front camera, Speaker, and notification LED around the top left corner – something many brands have removed.
The Xperia Pro-I has three 12MP cameras, each with different sensors. All of them are centered on the back of the device. The large Exmor RS BSI CMOS 1 is located in the middle, between the 12MP ultra-wide lens (top) and the 12MP telephoto shooter (bottom). The TOF camera and infrared light source are visible just below the main camera.
The LED flash is located outside the large camera setup, near the top. And the white dot next to it is probably the color spectrum sensor. Finally, the last thing of interest is the mono microphone – it’s used to raise the voice when recording video.
The machine has a separate shutter button with large size created with 2 levels of pressing when lightly pressing the camera will focus and press hard, the machine will capture.
The round key can be configured to your liking – Sony imagines photographers will specify a specific camera app or pre-configured shooting modes and parameters. There are many possibilities to use this shutter button.
Sony is selling a dedicated leather case that covers the front bezel and covers the back. It provides a firmer grip but also protects the screen from scratches and/or cracking if dropped.
Overall, the Sony Xperia Pro-I makes a huge impression of a well-designed smartphone with a terrible camera system on the market today. Its problem probably lies in the price up to 1800 USD, not easily accessible to the general user group.
