Sony has finally unveiled its flagship of the year and it is called the Xperia Pro. The Xperia Pro can double as a monitor for your existing camera or camcorder as it ships with a Micro-HDMI port through which you can get live feed from your external camera. The smartphone also has support for 5G connectivity.
