Sony’s advertising on the Xperia Pro-I misleading to say the least

Corporations lie to you every single day, or to be more specific:

people in corporations lie to you.

Sony is not immune from telling you fibs.
Spotlight is on the Xperia PRO-I camera smart phone.
They centre their marketing drivel on the 1.0 inch sensor.
In the photo there is a depiction of the sensor being shown with a ring only cutting the corners suggesting that you have the whole sensor at your photographic disposal.
This is factually not true.
Because of the lack of a large camera bump as in other smart phones for example the Nokia 1020 (or 909 as sometimes referred to) 41MP 1/1.15″ from 2013, the unsuspecting photographer has only a 60% available, or the equivalent of a 1/1.3″ sensor.
In Australia at the moment the phone retails for $1839, from expansys. 

That’s an eye watering $1800 for a product that you CANNOT make full use of the so called 1.0 inch sensor.

What a rip off, and a misleading advertising campaign from their website.
Will Australian consumers wake up to this farce?
Will the law even be aware of this?
As always no one cares unless someone takes it to court.
A Google Pixel 4 with a 12MP 1/1.255″ for ~$560 may be a better alternative.
