The term “SONY” sounds like a Brand that produces a Camera & sound system. But how many of you know that Sony is once a leading smartphone brand that introduced the new era of water resistance smartphones which was a major important feature that everyone notice while choosing a smartphone. Then! What happened with the sony smartphones? Why didn’t they go nowhere? these topics will be soon covered within this series of Blogs.
However, Sony has turned the plate on mobile technology to a whole new level. I would say Sony is one of the Brands which is willing to sell mobiles despite the dominance of Apple and Samsung. Sony is known for their fine cutting edge technologies in camera, sound systems, and even gaming consoles but not quite known for their mobile but Sony Xperia Pro 1 5G is standing on top of all.
(Disclaimer: Don’t miss out on the camera part)
Let’s cover with the Elegant specification of the Sony Xperia Pro I
Build-in, Design and Handling:
It has built with a dimension of 166×72×8.9mm of a pure aluminum frame with gorilla glass on both sides. It is not a typical dual glass smartphone but Sony made this thick and ribbed aluminum frame for the best grip you can get in a duel glassed smartphone. (Yes, Don’t have to fear dropping your mobile even if you do you have a metal frame to handle that. LOL. )
Xperia pro 1 has an OLED with 1 Billion colors and up to 120Hz display which is still the best refresh rate hence displaying smoothness while gaming is still bliss. They give 1644×3840 pixels with 643ppi which gives you fine 4K display quality. 82.5% Screen-to-body ratio. Imagine an 82.5% S-B ratio with a 4K display will be a Valhalla for movie lovers.
How could I miss the display material? Sony Xperia Pro I has a gorilla glass Victus which is twice as strong and scratch-resistant as Gorilla glass 6 said the company. Xperia Pro I also comes with a back gorilla glass 6.
Water & Dust Resistance:
Comes with IP65 dust resistance and IP68 water-resistant with up to 1.5m underwater for 30 minutes.
Sony Xperia Pro I comes with Qualcomm SM8350 Snapdragon 888 5G chipset and Octa-core with Adreno 660 processors which run in Android 11 OS. They also provide 512GB of internal storage with 12GB enormous RAM for the best processing speed.
The Camera: Sony Xperia Pro I
Let’s get into that Bigger part:
I’m excited a bit high whenever speaking about a device camera and its features.
We know Sony is known for their exceptional Professional camera’s, Also they had Quoted :
Xperia PRO-I [THE Camera]: The ‘I’ stands for Imaging. The Xperia PRO-I redefines the camera, combining professional imaging quality with smartphone communication capabilities. So you can be creative, wherever, whenever.SONY
For Instance a (Sony RX100 v7 camera inbuild into your mobile phone. Or a Smartphone is built with a 1″ inch sensor). “Oh man, that’s a whole new innovation” Sony has a huge camera sensor of size 1inch which is the first smartphone that introduces this kinda innovation into the smartphone Era. This cannot be seen in any mobile, It’s also a bitter truth that iPhone uses a Sony camera so only if Sony gives its sensor does the iPhone have to think about it. I Hope iPhone 14 will be released with a 1″ sensor!!! Maybe that’s a Camera more than a Smartphone.
(Note: iPhone 13 pro max use 0.6-inch sensor)
Sony Xperia Pro 1 has a Quad camera on the back which gives you a 12MP camera with wide-angle, 12MP for telephoto with 2× optical zoom, another 12MP for ultrawide photos, and 0.3MP for depth with LED dual-tone flash. I suggest you never judge these cameras based on their Megapixels and optical zoom.
Note: iPhone 13 pro max uses a 12MP camera with 3× optical zoom.
Another DSLR level feature is 315 Phase detection auto-focus points which allow the light to enter various areas of the lens and cover 90% of the frame to measure exactly how out of focus the image is, so the lens can be focused quickly and accurately. Also, provide 20fps burst shooting with less noise.
They provided a video spec of 4K video recording with up to 60fps with Dolby vision HDR with 60fps. It also facilitates Pro resolution, cinematic mode, and stereo sound recording.
So for detailed features of the Camera, we had made an individual dedicated blog post which will be rolling out before Thursday.
The Selfie camera is a single 12MP-HDR camera with depth and biometric sensor with a recording of 4K videos up to 60fps. Tik Tokkers and You tubers will love it.
Xperia Pro 1 comes with a 4352 mAh non-removable Li-ion battery which has a fast charging of 27W which is 50% in 30min (as advertised). USB power delivery 2.0 for fast data transfer.
Packaging: No Plastic Inside

Expected price is Rs.1,56,000. I personally felt that the two designers worked and by default they made a new innovation of the smartphone into a camera. For Real, I’m curious about the launch and user experience with the camera. Hope this might be a Great relaunch of the tech giant Sony into the Smartphone battle.
Soon there are maybe several new sony users around you!!
Will they soon beat apple and Samsung out of competition in the tech race?
Comment your view…cheers.
