Sony is hosting a gaming event on Monday where we may or may not see new smartphones. However, rumor has it that the Xperia Pro-I will be released again in November, with the launch of the second-generation photography-oriented Xperia Pro-I.
Sony will reportedly launch phones with triple cameras, all with new and improved sensors, all with 48 MP resolution. On top of that, one of them will have a variable aperture between f/1.2 and f/4.0.
The three cameras are MP and binning means they will shoot natively at MP resolution. According to sources, the main camera will feature a 1-inch IMX803 sensor, while the ultra-wide shooter will feature a 1/1.3-inch IMX803 imager .
The telephoto sensor will be a new version of the 1/1.7” IMX 557 we saw earlier in the Xperia 1 II and Xperia 5 Quad . However, in both, it has native 12 MP resolution, and the successor is moving to Quad-Bayer setting.
We can expect a new ISP to also appear with this so-called Xperia Pro-I Mark II at the official launch. Last year’s Pro-I arrived in late October, so the timeline presented in the report is not Untrustworthy.
