The smartphone designed to accompany professional photographers arrives late, with hardware from last year - and a price tag that will also make the modelsiPhone and the-Galaxy The most luxurious feel like a relatively amazing deal
Many around the network wonder how it is possible that Sony, the Japanese giant that has experienced great success in the gaming world and has a high level of control in the field of photography sensors and in some categories of cameras, fails to translate its benefits into any significant success in the world of smart devices. Games can be a winning feature and very popular in the field. Last year we received an announcement Smart device Of a new kind designed to try to bring out the inherent benefits of Sony More seriously and tangibly for a change, but instead of official availability in stores around the world that intriguing work has quickly disappeared - and now comes the late launch which once again provides more question marks than answers, unfortunately.
The Xperia Pro is finally ready for its launch, with chip The Snapdragon 865 that was the main star last year, screen OLED Extremely high resolution, a unique miniature HDMI computer added to the connectorUSB The familiar standard Type-C, support for extremely high theoretical wireless transmission speeds in the fifth generation of cellular - and a completely grandiose price tag of $ 2,500 (excluding tax) in North America.
Quite a few professional videographers and stills make use of wireless outdoor streaming units based on Wi-Fi and connectivity Mobile phones In order to deal with the vast amounts of information extracted from their equipment on a given working day, and theXperia Pro is a niche product designed to serve as a replacement for this very equipment plus natural bonuses of the quality screen and the Android system below it - but a price of $ 2,500 is also significantly higher compared to those top end products, with differences in specifications relative toXperia Launched with a price tag of less than half does not help make the decisions of Sony For more logic.
The Xperia Pro features a 6.5-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 3,840 × 1,644 pixels with a 10-bit color scheme supported by the BT.2020 standard, 5GB LPDDR12 memory, 512GB fast internal storage, IP68 protection against water and dust, main photo array Triangle with 12-megapixel sensors for standard photography, telephoto and wide-angle photography, stereo speakers, 4,000mAh built-in battery with 21-watt charging support and an octagonal 865 Snapdragon chip of Qualcomm With a modem Snapdragon An accompanying X55 that supports networks 5G At frequencies below 6 GHz and also at MMWave frequencies thanks to an increased number of built-in antennas designed to provide optimum performance in almost any situation and anywhere.
The Xperia 1 II, on the other hand, features a similar shell with water and dust protection, the same advanced screen, the same photo setup, battery With the same capacity, storage Of 256GB alongside 8GB of dynamic memory and chip storage Identical in a thinner and lighter shell - so it remains only to wonder if you think doubling the available internal storage, extra micro- connectionHDMI Dedicated and augmentation of the outer casing so that it is more resistant to frequent daily use in challenging conditions justifies an addition of $ 1,300 or more to the price tag, with a delay of over half a year at launch.
