Created for mobile filmmakers, photographers, and broadcasters, the Xperia PRO 512GB 5G Smartphone from Sony has been engineered to live stream and upload high-resolution content at blistering 5G mmWave speeds. To ensure you get the fastest speeds possible, a Network Visualizer app can be used to test signal strength, letting you set up live shots in the best possible location. Other technologies, such as a body made from a low dielectric constant material and 360° beamforming antenna, further boost your ability to achieve and sustain a strong 5G signal. (Please note that sub-6 support requires a software update)

With the connection of an (optional) Micro-HDMI cable between your camera or camcorder and the Xperia PRO, you can live broadcast/livestream what your camera sees through the Xperia PRO's 5G cellular connection. You can also use the Micro-HDMI connection to utilize the phone's brilliant 21:9 CinemaWide 6.5" 4K HDR OLED screen as a pro-style live monitor, offering more accurate color and image representation onscreen. This high-quality output is made possible with Creator Mode, which provides a BT.2020 color space, DCI-P3 100% color gamut, and a calibrated D65 white point.

360-Degree Beamforming Antenna
Achieving a solid 5G mmWave connection is essential in mission-critical applications, especially live streams and broadcasts. This is why Sony selected a 360° antenna with beamforming technology. The antenna can transmit and receive through all sides of the Xperia PRO, while the beamforming technology focuses the antenna on an available signal to maximize its efficacy.
5G Endurance Mode
When activated, this will let an operator continuously transfer data at maximum 5G mmWave speeds while being tethered to a camera.
Network Visualizer App
Just like there can be connection dead spots in your home, while on location it's imperative that you set up your gear in a prime location with a strong signal. The Network Visualizer app lets you use the Xperia PRO to navigate your surroundings to locate strong 5G mmWave reception. It can also work with 4G/LTE signals, provides a histogram, and displays data throughput.
Video Monitoring via HDMI
In addition to a USB Type-C port for tethering, a micro-HDMI port is integrated for live video monitoring when attached to professional cameras. The port allows for more accurate color reproduction of what you're filming with YCbCr 4:2:2 8-bit/RGB 8-bit support, and incoming video is displayed at up to 4K resolutions at your choice of 24, 30, or 60 fps as needed.
Professional Camera System
When you're not using the Xperia PRO for its monitor and connectivity features, you can use its triple camera array to capture pro-quality mobile content. They can record stills in a variety of formats and videos at up to 4K HDR resolution at a 21:9 aspect ratio at 24, 30, 60, and 120 fps:

  • 12MP Ultra-Wide: 16mm focal length, f/2.2 aperture, 1/2.55 Exmore RS sensor, and 124° FOV
  • 12MP Wide: 24mm focal length, f/1.7 aperture, 1/1.7 Exmor RS sensor, and 82° FOV
  • 12MP Telephoto: 70mm focal length, f/2.4 aperture, 1/3.4" sensor, and 34° FOV

The system was developed in conjunction with Sony Alpha 9 engineers to ensure quality and provide much-desired features not normally found in a mobile phone. Features like manual controls, support for shooting raw, up to 20 fps continuous wide-angle shooting (up to 10 fps at 16 or 70mm), and real-time eye autofocus that works on both humans and animals. These engineers also used premium calibrated ZEISS optics with ZEISS T-coating to boost contrast and reduce reflections.

External Monitor
When attached to your camera and used as an external monitor, the Xperia PRO offers a host of additional capabilities. You can livestream what your camera sees online, use waveform to check the exposure and RGB balance, and use false color to assist with iris setting selections by ensuring the details for exposure are more noticeable.

You also get a trigger function for recording and stopping via a USB Type-C cable and on-screen statuses that include whether you're recording or not, shutter speed, f-stop, ISO, and EV. When connected to an Alpha camera, you can even control features of the Alpha itself.
IP65/68 and Corning Gorilla Glass 6
It's not always a bright and sunny day when you're out in the field. This is why Sony made sure the Xperia PRO can keep up with the rest of your kit. The IP65/68 rating translates to a smartphone that is completely dustproof and able to withstand rain and short periods of complete and continuous immersion in water. The Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection on the front of the phone is made to deliver significant scratch and damage resistance.
High-Quality Audio
When you want to wind down with some music, the Xperia PRO is capable of playing back Hi-Res Audio wirelessly or via a 3.5mm jack. It features front-firing stereo speakers and supports 360 Reality Audio decoding, Dolby ATMOS, DSEE Ultimate, HD audio, Qualcomm aptX, and audio recording in stereo.
Long-Lasting Battery
To ensure long battery life, the Xperia PRO comes with a sizable 4000 mAh battery and two features to guard the phone against damage while charging. Battery Care delivers overcharging protection, while Xperia Adaptive Charging works to make sure the battery is not overworked during the recharge process.
Shortcut Button
We all have that one app we constantly use. A built-in shortcut button can be programmed to launch the go-to app of your choice, such as the Network Visualizer.

Android 10
The Android operating system is a personalized and customizable OS that allows you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your home screen and integrates heavily with Google's services. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to millions of apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 10 adds a wide variety of intelligent features, additional privacy controls, and other enhancements that make using your Android phone more enjoyable. Some features include Live Caption, which captions running videos, podcasts, and audio messages without the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data; Smart Reply, which suggests both responses to and actions for texts; and Family Link, which lets you manage apps, set screen time limits, and more.
GSM/4G LTE + 5G Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM and 5G networks. 5G is a cellular network data protocol capable of extremely fast data speeds that rival, or surpass, that of wired broadband Internet providers. 5G speeds can vary considerably based on location, but on average, should have no problem streaming 4K video. As 5G upgrades over time, mobile AR and VR applications could become possible. The phone is backward compatible with 4G LTE, 3G, and 2G data for locations that do not support 5G.
North American Variant / US Compatible 5G
The Xperia PRO is a North American variant. It may be used in other parts of the world; however, 5G access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network. Please choose your country/carrier above to confirm the network compatibility of this phone.
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS)
Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) allows you to lower your mobile costs when traveling while staying connected. Once your SIM cards are installed, you will be able to receive phone calls and text messages from either without needing to manually choose which one is active. When you want to make a call or send an SMS message, you can select the correct SIM card. When one SIM card is being used for a phone call, the other will not be active until you hang up. Operator charges may apply.
