Film and camera companies have long been catering to the needs of large film studios, which develop and manufacture cameras for high-budget productions for film and television. However, as streaming media sites such as Twitch and YouTube continue to account for an increasing proportion of the overall viewing market share, it is natural that some of these companies will start producing hardware specifically for content creators. This is exactly what Sony just did with its brand new Xperia PRO smartphone.
From the appearance point of view, Xperia PRO does not look unassuming, although the phone has many industry firsts, allowing it to create and produce content on site. The phone is equipped with an HDMI input, allowing its 6.5-inch 21:9 aspect ratio OLED display to double as an external camera monitor, and its 5G compatibility/connectivity allows it to perform real-time in 4K HDR at 60fps Streaming, or upload via 5G Sub-6 for high-speed data transmission. Other notable elements on smartphones made in Japan include a 12MP camera, Snapdragon 865 processor, and 4,000mAh battery. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price of the upcoming Sony Xperia PRO smartphone is US$2499. Click here for more details.
