A mobile for professionals
This Sony Xperia Pro 5G is very similar to the Xperia 1 II launched last year, except for the incorporation of 5G and HDMI. The introduction of HDMI is one of the highlights
This means that you can connect your phone to a camera’s HDMI port to use a larger screen when taking photos or recording videos. In addition, 5G connectivity also plays an important role in the device as it allows it to act as live streaming link for camera, in addition to acting as an external monitor. The device can stream images from its HDMI input directly to YouTube. It also supports StreamLabs and StreamYard for streaming on other platforms such as Twitch and Facebook Live.
These functions are what make the Sony Xperia Pro 5G a smartphone for professionals. Otherwise, the device maintains the Same specs we saw in 2020 on the Xperia 1 II. The same 6.5 inch OLED screen, the Snapdragon 865 as a processor and a battery capacity of 5000mAh, which will give good battery life when recording or taking photos with it.
The cameras are the same with three 12 Mpx sensors on the back (main, telephoto and ultra wide angle), with support for 4K recording, in addition to having threex optical zoom. In addition, they use the proprietary technology of Digital Cinema Camera for the professional color processing of these cameras.
Price and availability
The Sony Xperia Pro 5G has already gone on sale in the US and Sony also confirms this do not intend to launch this device in Europe. It will therefore be limited to the American market, unless the manufacturer changes its mind in the near future on this subject. This phone doesn’t stand out for being particularly cheap, as it launches for $ 2,499.99.
