Sony has revealed its latest premium camera phone offering: the Xperia PRO-I ('I' for 'Imaging'). Positioned alongside the flagship Xperia PRO and above the Xperia 1 III, it's designed to be a more conventional flagship device than the existing, rather more niche Xperia PRO.

PRO-I combines many of the PRO's professional-grade features with an even more impressive camera set-up, and for a lower price. 'Lower', however, translates to £1,599, which though significantly less than the eye-wateringly expensive PRO, is still a huge outlay and makes the likes of a 512GB iPhone 13 Pro Max look almost a bargain!
