Sony has announced plans to develop a 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) compatible smartphone that will include camera and display capabilities for high-quality video viewing and photography.
The 5G mmWave compatible smartphone, called the Xperia Pro, will include a camera and display capabilities from Xperia 1 II, the next generation flagship smartphone from Sony. The 5G smartphone includes a four-way antenna technology, increasing the sensitivity of 360° omnidirectional communication in the 5G mmWave band, where it is difficult to maintain stable communication and data transmission and reception travel at ultra-high speed.
The 5G phone supports an HDMI2 connection in order to connect to virtually any camera with an HDMI output and the camera can be used as a monitor for interchangeable lens DSLR cameras or professional camcorders. Sony said it is possible to transmit broadcast video data during shooting to a server or cloud via 5G connection.
Additionally, Sony has revealed details of its new flagship smartphone that comes equipped with a triple camera array and a 6.5 in 21:9 4K HDR organic light emitting diode (OLED). The phone is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 mobile platform with a high capacity 4000 mAh battery with wireless charging.
The Xperia 1 II is designed with Sony’s Alpha AF technology with focal lengths of 16 mm, 24 mm and 70 mm with ZEISS optics calibrated with ZEISS T coating, which contributes to rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.
The Xperia 1 II has a fast focus that works in low light conditions with four technologies working together including: dual-photo diode sensor, an autofocus system that covers about 70% of the sensor, the 3D iToF sensor and a large 1/1.7 in Exmor RS for mobile sensor, which is 1.5 times more sensitive than the previous model for faster and accurate low light shooting.
