Sony Xperia Pro 1 leaks with a giant 1-inch camera sensor, Zeiss optics

The Xperia Pro 1 is said to be Sony's first "camera with a phone attached."

What you need to know

  • The first official renders of Sony's upcoming Android flagship have leaked online.
  • The Xperia Pro 1 will apparently be the company's first phone to come equipped with a massive 1-inch camera sensor.
  • Sony will unveil the phone at a global launch event on October 25.

Sony announced earlier this month that it would announce a "new Xperia product" on October 26. While the company hasn't revealed anything about the product yet, two new leaks on Weibo suggest the event will see the launch of a new Xperia flagship aimed at vloggers (via (I_LEAK_VN).

The phone will apparently be called the Xperia Pro 1 and could be a follow-up to the Xperia Pro that Sony announced last year. As you can see in the images below, the Xperia Pro 1 will not look vastly different from Sony's current flagship devices. It has a tall aspect ratio, a dedicated camera shutter button, and relatively thick bezels around the display.

The leak also suggests the phone uses the same 1-inch Sony IMX800 main sensor as the Sharp Aquos R6. Just as you'd expect, the phone does appear to be quite thick. While it remains to be seen if the Xperia Pro 1 can take the smartphone camera crown away from the Pixel 6 Pro, it is likely to be a significant upgrade over previous flagship phones from the company.

Similar to the Xperia Pro, Sony will also offer a few interesting accessories along with the Pro 1 to make it more appealing to vloggers. As can be seen in the image below, the "Vlog monitor" accessory will make it a lot easier for vloggers to capture videos using the rear camera.

Needless to say, the Xperia Pro 1 appears to be a highly impressive device and could give the best Android phones from Samsung a run for their money. Going by the Xperia Pro's pricing, however, the Pro 1 may be nearly as expensive as the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Apple Adds Support for Live Activities to Shazam

Apple today added support for Live Activities in Shazam, its free music discovery and identification app. Shazam's Live Activities keep the user updated when searching for music in the background, which is particularly useful when multitasking or identifying songs in other apps .

Apple acquired Shazam in 2018, and has been gradually bringing the app into closer alignment with ‌ Apple Music ‌ ever since, offering trials to the streaming service through the app and the ability to sync Shazams directly to ‌‌Apple Music‌‌.

Review: Anker's Latest 3-in-1 Power Bank is a Versatile On-the-Go Powerhouse

Popular accessory brand Anker has just launched a new 10K version of its 3-in-1 power bank that offers up to 30 watts of charging power, a convenient display to quickly view exact charge status, an integrated USB-C cable for both input and output, and built-in folding prongs to recharge directly from a power outlet. I've recently been testing one of these Anker power banks out, and it has become a must-have accessory for my gear bag. Competitively priced at $44.99, the 10,000 mAh capacity means I can charge up my iPhone 15 Pro Max more than one and a half times while on the go, which is plenty for a long day out or even a weekend trip where easy access to power might be iffy. And the 30-watt charging speed means it'll charge my devices up quickly, meaning spending less time with my phone awkwardly tethered to a power bank while I'm out and about. A quick charge during a lunch or dinner is more than enough to keep my iPhone topped off for the remainder of the day. Th
