Film and camera companies have long catered to major studios, developing and manufacturing cameras for use on big-budget productions for movies and TV. But as streaming sites like Twitch and YouTube continue accounting for an increasingly large percentage of the overall viewing market share, it’s only natural that some of these same companies would start producing hardware specifically targeted at content creators. And that’s exactly what Sony has just done with its all-new Xperia PRO Smartphone.

From its outward appearance, the Xperia PRO looks fairly unassuming, though the phone contains a number of industry firsts that allow it to lend itself to in-the-field content creation and production duties. The phone is equipped with an HDMI input that allows its 6.5” 21:9 aspect ratio OLED display to double as an external camera monitor while its 5G compatibility/connectivity enables it to live-stream in 4K HDR at 60fps or to upload with 5G Sub-6 for high-speed data transfers. Other noteworthy elements on the Japanese-made smartphone include a 12MP camera, a Snapdragon 865 processor, and a 4,000mAh battery. Ready for launch, the Sony Xperia PRO Smartphone will carry an MSRP of $2,499.
