There has been a lot of talk about Sony closing down its mobile division, but the Xperia Pro shows the exact opposite that it lives on.
Xperia Pro came as a bit of a surprise after Sony unveiled its new flagship camera, Alpha 1.
The problem that Sony has had with their phones is that they have always been one step behind with their hardware, but they have always impressed with their cameras and the features that the camera can handle.
Xperia Pro has clearly been developed for professional photographers and will fit perfectly with Alpha 1. However, what is hidden under the shell of the Xperia Pro is:

What makes the Xperia Pro a bit unique is that it has a micro-HDMI input that you can connect the camera directly to and that is probably something we have not seen before, but the question is why you did not just use USB-C which is much faster and would able to do it really well.
The hardware in the Xperia Pro is far from impressive and the question I ask myself is what Sony has done to make the phone worth over SEK 20,000?
In any case, this is a phone that is a perfect combination with Alpha 1, which already costs over SEK 65,000 just for the camera body.
Sony Xperia Pro is not a phone for everyone but is really focused on “Pro” so probably not a phone we will see much of. Exactly when it will be released we do not know at the moment, however, the price tag is 2500 dollars.
