Sony Xperia PRO Smartphone

MSRP 2500 USDNEX score 51%

Product Overview

Sony Xperia PRO is a professional smartphone designed for photographers and videographers. Its calling card is the unique HDMI input port that allows the user to tether to their Sony Alpha cameras as an external monitor and for live streaming.
Additional wireless connectivity offered by the Xperia PRO further allows the photographer to upload their shots on the cloud quickly.
While the Xperia PRO does not offer the most powerful internals, it is built tougher than most smartphones on the market today. Its construction resembles that of Sony's Alpha cameras, combining IP68 water and dust resistance with Gorilla Glass 6.
On its own, the Xperia PRO is also a photo / video tour de force. With three main rear cameras, the Xperia PRO is able to burst at 20fps with continuous autofocus and auto exposure, including Eye AF. These cameras use sensors notably larger than it is usually the case with smartphones, and they are aided with ZEISS lenses.
As a phone, the Xperia PRO comes with essentially the same 6.5" OLED display found in the Xperia 1 III. It also offers a 3.5mm audio jack powered by a high-resolution DAC. There is also dual 5G connectivity.
