Sony’s freshly announced Xperia Pro-I costs €1,799 in Europe, and if you live in the US, you’ll have to shell out $1,800 to buy one, with the Vlog Monitor costing another $200. Pre-orders will kick off in the States on October 28, with deliveries starting on December 10.
The Sony Xperia Pro-I is built around a 6.5″ 120Hz OLED screen of 3,840×1,644-pixel resolution and has the Snapdragon 888 SoC at the helm with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. The smartphone runs Android 11 out of the box, and there’s no word on when Android 12 will arrive.

For photography, there’s an 8MP selfie shooter on the front and three 12MP (main, ultrawide, telephoto) cameras on the back. The primary unit uses a 1″ type camera sensor – the same one we have on Sony’s RX100 VII compact camera, albeit with some optimizations for a smartphone. You also get a variable aperture with the main unit that goes from f/2.0 to f/4.0.
The telephoto module sits behind a 50mm lens and offers 2x optical zoom, while the ultrawide camera allows you to take pictures with an FOV of 124˚.
