We might see a new smartphone at Sony’s gaming event on Monday. According to rumors, Sony will launch its second generation of photography-oriented Xperia Pro-I in November.
Apparently, Sony will launch a phone with three cameras, all with 48MP resolutions, all with new and improved sensors. A variable aperture will also be available on one of them between f/1.2 and f/4.0.
With 48MP resolution and pixel binning, each camera will shoot 12MP natively. The main camera will have a 1″ IMX903 sensor, and the ultrawide camera will have a 1/1.3″ IMX803 sensor.
It will have a 1/1.7″ IMX557 sensor, which we’ve previously seen on the Xperia 1 II and Xperia 5 IV. Those two had native 12MP resolution, while the successor has Quad-Bayer.
This alleged Xperia Pro-I Mark II will also be accompanied by a new ISP when it goes official. As last year’s Pro-I arrived in late October, the report’s timeline isn’t implausible.
For the most part, the Xperia Pro-I is identical to the Xperia 1 III. With the exception of the 6.5-inch 4K OLED display and the Snapdragon 888 CPU with 12GB of RAM.
It packs a 4,500mAh battery and 512GB of storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card. It comes with an Xperia Pro-I charging cord and a protective case. As well as a 30W charger in the box.
