Early December this year, Sony will release the Xperia Pro-I (the I stands for imaging). This smartphone is claimed to be the world’s first smartphone to use 1-inch sensor with a phase-detection autofocus (PDAF). Previously, we’ve seen this sensor being implemented in the Sony RX100 camera. To see this sensor is used in the Xperia Pro-I shows that Sony is not playing games when it comes to camera quality.
Other than that, the Xperia Pro-I has stereo speaker, a 3.5mm jack for wired audio connectivity, a microSD slot for storage upgrade up to 1TB, a hardware shutter, high-quality microphones, and rated IP65/IP68 with dust/water resistant up to 30 mins. This smartphone can also be used as an external monitor and controller for some Sony cameras.
