In recent years, Sony has introduced many technical features and many innovations to its smartphone cameras. And so we were able to find out Sony Xperia Pro-IEquipped with a main camera with a 1-inch image sensor. This sensor was also associated with a photographic lens that allowed variable aperture with a choice between f2.0 and f/4.0. Later, the Japanese manufacturer repeated its Xperia 1 IV with a telephoto lens capable of moving from 85 to 125 mm for an aperture of f / 2.8 to f / 2.3.
It seems Sony has no plans to stop there. As reported by the Japanese website Sumahodigest, several rumors that have been published on the Chinese social network Weibo have reported a new smartphone from the Xperia Pro range being prepared in Sony’s laboratories. This new smartphone, like its predecessor, will definitely be photo-oriented. Above all, the diaphragm will be more advanced, allowing the focal aperture to vary from f/4.0 (in high-brightness) to f/1.2 (in low-light situations). All values between f/1.4, f/1.8, f/2.0, and f/2.8 will also be possible.
In addition to this variable aperture lens, Sony’s upcoming high-end smartphone will also benefit from a 1-inch Sony IMX903 main sensor for the wide-angle lens. There will also be two more sensors, possibly for ultra wide angle and telephoto.

For his part, leaker Teme shared a video of what appears to be the lens attached to the main sensor of Sony’s future premium smartphone on Monday. Not only can we see the variable aperture diaphragm system, to bring in more or less light (from f/1.2 to f/4) – but also the design of the rear imaging unit.
This arrangement is reminiscent of the way manufacturers like Huawei combine their cameras, with four lenses placed in a large circle that takes up the entire back face of the smartphone. According to the video, these are four cameras that should be located on the back
Looking at the Sony Xperia Pro-I that was unveiled in October 2021, it’s easy to hope that its successor will be announced around the same time this year.
