Short description Sony Xperia Pro

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a good camera that has 4 modules (12 MP Wide, 12 MP Telephoto, 12 MP UltraWide, 0.3 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Sony Xperia Pro has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, dust and water protection.

Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Sony Xperia Pro we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Sony in January 2021. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Sony Xperia Pro works on Android 10 and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2021.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Sony Xperia Pro is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. In addition, this model works in the fifth generation networks (5G), and this means that the speed of mobile Internet will be as high as home Wi-Fi (maximum 100 Mb/s). And there is another plus — the smartphone’s battery will be slower to use up the charge and your phone will work longer until the next charge. We have collected all smartphones with support for 5G networks on a specific page in the catalog, so that it is more convenient for you to choose and search for a new smartphone.

Screen, body and battery

6.5-inch OLED touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Sony Xperia Pro.. Body thickness 10.2 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 4 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thick case and normal battery.

The case of the smartphone is completely protected from water and dust. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide + 0.3 MP Depth sensor and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Sony Xperia Pro has one module: 8 MP Wide. And this, of course, is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone that always works fast, smoothly and does not overheat is a smartphone-dream! You can see how fast our Sony Xperia Pro works in video reviews, and now let′s talk briefly about the characteristics of the processor and memory. This model received 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 865. The amount of RAM is 12 GB.

The built-in memory on which you will store photos, videos, music and all your data, has a volume of 512 GB. In addition, the smartphone supports memory cards microSDXC up to 1000 GB.

Price for Sony Xperia Pro: buy or not to buy?

The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone Sony Xperia Pro we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a huge screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive the usual quality of photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is very powerful with a capacious battery here.

Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $2500 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.

If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.

Sony Xperia Pro
Xperia PRO – empowering photographers to work smarter

The new 5G smartphone Sony Xperia Pro is based on last year’s Sony Xperia 1 II smartphone. The novelty received a micro HDMI port, a 6.5-inch OLED screen (4K HDR), a Snapdragon 865 processor, 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal memory, as well as a slot for microSD memory cards (up to 1 TB).

The body of the smartphone is protected according to IP65/68 standards. It has an aluminum frame, the front screen is covered by Gorilla Glass 6, and the back of the smartphone is a regular plastic panel.

The smartphone supports 5G networks, namely mmWave. Thanks to this, you can broadcast live from your smartphone, capturing the image from the connected camera.

As for the cameras that are built into the smartphone, the Sony Xperia Pro has a quad camera on the back (12MP Wide + 12MP Telephoto + 12MP UltraWide + 0.3MP depth sensor). The selfie camera is located in front of the screen and has one 8 megapixel module.

Price and availability in the market. Looking at the specs and price of the Xperia Pro smartphone, it becomes obvious that this model will not be massively sold. This is a niche smartphone that will not be sold in all regions. Yes, it’s very expensive. But, it can do according to its characteristics, what other smartphones cannot. And the Xperia Pro is intended to replace a bunch of other expensive infrastructure needed to run good quality video streams over 5G networks.
