Best Buy has the insanely expensive Sony Xperia Pro-I on sale at a new record high discount
How much are you willing to pay for a 2021-released smartphone in 2023? $400? $600? How about $999.99? That latter number may seem ridiculous when you consider that 2022's Galaxy S22 Ultra beast, for instance, currently starts at only $700 or so brand-new, but the Xperia Pro-I is not just any 2021 device.

Originally priced at a whopping $1,799.99 and unsurprisingly marked down to $1,099.99 pretty much the entire past holiday season, this vlogger-friendly bad boy is discounted by a record 800 bucks right now in an unlocked variant with no strings attached.

On top of that, Best Buy is adding a $200-worth Sony vlog monitor as a nice deal sweetener at no extra charge, and while the Xperia Pro-I is still by no means what we'd call a traditionally affordable handset, its value for your money has certainly never been higher.

The key selling point here is without a doubt that absolutely bonkers 1-inch image sensor headlining a triple rear-facing camera system that doesn't exactly shine in the megapixel department. The enormous Exmor RS sensor itself only boasts a 12MP count, but its low-light photography (and videography) skills are virtually unrivaled in today's mobile industry.

Powered by a Snapdragon 888 processor that's obviously no longer the cream of the Android crop, the Xperia Pro-I does shine as far as storage and memory are concerned, packing a generous 512 and 12 gigs respectively, and believe it or not, you also get both a microSD card slot and good old fashioned 3.5mm headphone jack for extreme versatility and convenience.

The 6.5-inch OLED display, meanwhile, is a total stunner, with a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio, buttery smooth 120Hz refresh rate technology, and perhaps most impressively, a cutting-edge resolution of 3840 x 1644 pixels.

No, this is not a perfect device, which might feel disappointing for a lot of folks who are not used to spend around a thousand dollars on a new phone every couple of years, but the very specific target audience of Sony's Pro-grade handsets may well find Best Buy's killer new deal truly and utterly irresistible.
