We’re all excited about 5G, and probably some of you are using it already. That’s why we’re excited about Sony’s smartphone. Sony Electronics Inc. introduced the Xperia PRO, the world’s first smartphone with dedicated HDMI connectivity, packing in 5G mmWave and 5G Sub-6 for high-speed data transfer for optimized signal reception. The Xperia Pro can be part of your content-generating toolset.
Xperia PRO’s dedicated HDMI input allows users to enhance their workflow by connecting the device to an Alpha camera or any other HDMI input equipped camera to enable a 5G data link to broadcast video in real-time. Using compatible third-party live streaming applications, Xperia PRO can stream video content from a camera connected to the HDMI input to an RTMP server or directly to popular social media platforms.
Xperia PRO’s HDMI input can also transform the smartphone into a high-quality 6.5-inch 4K OLED monitor through the preinstalled External Monitor host application software. The External Monitor feature features a screen lock function, screen brightness adjustment, zoom capabilities, adjustable grid lines, and more.
Stable High-Speed Data Transfer
A wired USB connection enhances the speed and stability of still image file transfer between the phone and camera. Connect your Alpha brand camera to the Xperia PRO mobile device through the USB connection*, and automatically transfer images to an FTP server.
Optimized Design for Dependable Reception
The Xperia PRO also features a 360-degree antenna design, which covers all four sides of the device. This 360-degree antenna produces the most effective way to capture high-band frequency 5G mmWave signals. Also, Sony says the low dielectric constant material used in the Xperia PRO’s chassis enables radio waves to pass through more easily. Together, these technologies help ensure an optimized 5G signal strength connection, no matter how the user is holding the device or positioned.
The Network Visualizer feature developed for Xperia PRO provides easy-to-understand visualization of the signal direction, communication method, and communication speed of the device to help camera operators locate the best spot for live transmissions. This feature shows the current signal reception, indicates the 5G signal’s direction and provides communication throughput and histogram. There’s a shortcut button located on the Xperia PRO side, which can be assigned to launch a frequently used feature, including Network Visualizer.
Outstanding Imaging Technology for Content Creators
Xperia PRO packs in all of the same industry-leading imaging technology as the Xperia 1 II flagship smartphone, which makes it – even as a standalone device – a powerful tool for photography and video content creation. Because the Xperia PRO is always with you, professionals and other content creators will never miss an opportunity to create high quality, professional-level content or share that content in real-time – even without a professional camera on hand.
Developed with Sony’s Alpha camera engineers, the Xperia PRO integrates technology such as Real-time AF (autofocus) on humans and animals. It also features an interface designed to meet professional photographers’ demands with various manual controls, the capability to shoot up to 20fps with 60 times per second autofocus/autoexposure calculations, and RAW support.
Drawing on Sony’s Digital Cinema Camera engineers’ expertise, the Xperia PRO offers various tools to enhance filmmaking. Users can get creative with Look color management pre-sets, 21:9 movie recording, 4K HDR in 24, 30, 60, 120fps slow-motion, and an Intelligent wind filter. The 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED display features a 21:9 CinemaWide aspect ratio and supports the BT.2020 color space.
The Creator mode “powered by CineAlta” and a specially calibrated D65 white point reference complements Sony’s professional color monitor’s color reproduction.
Xperia PRO features ZEISS® optics calibrated precisely for Xperia with the ZEISS T* coating to reduce reflections. Xperia PRO also features a triple-lens camera with a 16mm ultra-wide-angle lens, 24mm lens wide-angle lens, and 70mm telephoto lens for true creative freedom.
Robust and durable, the Xperia PRO combines IP65/68 rating water and dust resistance with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 on the front for protection.
The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 865 5G Mobile Platform and the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF system empowers the user to game, capture, cross-task, and connect with staggering multi-gigabit 5G speeds and improved performance from a 25% faster CPU and GPU than on the previous Xperia model.
With a long-lasting 4.000mAh battery, the Xperia PRO gets the job done. It is compatible with the optional UCH32C Fast Charger to quickly top-up when the battery is running low. It also has two technologies to keep the healthy battery longer. Battery Care prevents the phone from overcharging, while Xperia Adaptive Charging monitors the phone as it charges to make sure the battery isn’t overworked.
