Sony today revealed the Xperia PRO-I, an $1,800 phone with the same 1-inch camera sensor found in Sony’s line of RX100 standalone cameras. The 12-megapixel Exmor RS sensor has dual apertures (f/2.0 and f/4.0) and ZEISS Tessar T optics. The main camera is joined by 12 megapixel wide and telephoto cameras on the back, as well as a "3D iToF" and RGB-IR sensors. The front has an 8 megapixel camera and 6.5-inch 4K OLED display with 120 Hz refresh and HDR, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. The PRO-I is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip alongside 12 GB RAM and 512 GB storage, expandable with memory cards up to 1 TB. The battery is 4,500 mAh and the phone supports USB-PD fast charging. The phone has excellent support for 4G and sub-6 5G networks of Verizon and T-Mobile, including new C-Band networks coming soon to the US. It does not support mmWave 5G like the original Xperia Pro. Other features include IP68 rating for water and dust, USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, DisplayPort and HDMI video output, NFC, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, fingerprint reader, and a headset jack. For vlogging, Sony will offer an external monitor accessory that lets you see yourself while using the rear cameras. The phone will launch in "some regions" by the end of this year, and elsewhere in 2022.

A King's Ransom

Looks like a cool phone, however shelling out almost 2K is insanity. I doubt this phone will be worth half its value in a year. I bought the iPhone 13 Pro Max and traded in my 12 Pro Max and Apple gave me 839.96 with returned taxes. My new phone cost me under $300.00. Sony may be a decent phone, however I don't see people going crazy for the new Apple and Google Pixel phones.
