Sony Xperia Pro 5G set to finally launch in the US
There are some other extras over the current flagship - there’s an HDMI micro connector (Type D) that allows you to directly connect your camera, and also a dedicated shortcut key to quickly launch certain apps. The antenna design in the Xperia Pro has been reimagined - it’s a new 360-degree design that offers optimal signal strength.
Judging from the firmware files, though, the Xperia Pro will launch with Android 10 out of the box (sadly, no Android 11 goodness) and also the September 2020 Android security patch. The Xperia Pro comes equipped with a 6.5-inch 4K HDR OLED display and last year’s Qualcomm flagship chipset - the Snapdragon 865.
There’s a triple-lens camera system on the back with three 12MP sensors and ZEISS optics. You get 512GB of onboard storage, 12GB of RAM, IP68 water and dust resistance, and a 4,000mAh battery. There’s no official release date, but the phone is listed as “Available soon” on Sony’s website. Expect a price north of $1000, as the “regular” Xperia 1 Mark II retails for $1,200.
