Sony Xperia Pro 1 could feature a 1-inch main sensor

In May of this year, Japanese smartphone maker Sharp launched the Aquos R6, the industry’s first smartphone with a massive 1-inch camera sensor. The device’s main camera featured a 1-inch 20MP CMOS sensor with a 7-element lens developed in collaboration with Leica. Soon after, Leica released a renowned version of the Aquos R6, the Leitz Phone 1, which featured the same camera system. Now, leaks suggest that Sony will also offer a similar camera system on the upcoming Xperia Pro 1.

According to some marketing images shared on the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo (Going through @I_Leak_VN), the upcoming Sony Xperia Pro 1 will feature a 1-inch camera sensor with Zeiss optics. The main camera will have a dual aperture system (f / 2.0 and f / 4.0), like the one we’ve seen on Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S10 line before. The images also give us a first glimpse of the device. As you can see, it features the same design as other recent Sony flagships, with an updated quad-camera setup on the back, a USB Type-C port, a dedicated shutter release button, and a notch-less display.

The images further confirm that the device will support a few vlogging accessories, like a monitor and a vlogging microphone. The monitor and Vlog microphone will mount on the back of the device with a special bracket and connect to the device using the USB Type-C port.

As of yet, Sony has not shared any official details about the Xperia Pro 1. Since the marketing images contain Japanese text, we assume that Sony is preparing to launch the device in its home country. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as the company shares more details about the device.
