Though, the Xperia 5 III will come with the latest camera technology and top-end processor.  It’ll keep a triple camera setup consisting of a 12MP primary, 12MP ultra-wide, and 12MP telephoto snapper on the rear. However, Sony claims that this Telephoto lens is very versatile to take excellent zoom shots. The latest 888 Snapdragon chipset and 8GB RAM capacity will undoubtedly show a noteworthy performance. However, the battery of 4500mAh power is not a massive one but an average to run the 120Hz display. Well, it’s good to see Sony retain most of the slayer features in its rung-down handsets.

If you’ve got one of Sony’s previous two “Xperia 1” handsets, you’ll be familiar with what to presume here. The Xperia 1 III is providing to anybody who seems leftover by the existing handsets trends. It will come with an earphone jack, a microSD card slot, and no blow-hole cutout in the display. The most exciting spec that Sony claims for Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III are impressive physical modes for snapper. The rear camera format consists of a 12MP main, 12MP ultra-wide, and 12MP telephoto lens.  Both of these handsets are the primary handsets to have a capricious telephoto zoom snapper. It’s a crumpled periscope unit like the one present on the leading Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and others. Conversely, the lens inside elements can turn to adjust the focal length to either 105mm or 70mm. But, you can’t change anything in between them.

Sony also claims that it has enhanced subject tracing and video modes this year-surely, it states that each year. Overall, spec-wise, it is the handset that comes with quite similar specs as Xperia 5 III but with some more upgrades. The Xperia 1 III has also come with an 888 Snapdragon chipset that is the latest top-end processor of the year. However, it will combine with a bit high 256GB of storage and 12GB RAM capacity. Contrasting to the previous year’s Xperia 1-II, this handset will be future-proof with 5G accessibility.


Though the carrier upkeep is a little vague now, the 5G connection will be restricted to sub6 only. Sony also states this handset can control video response as the Xperia Pro. These specs will make it a convenient 4K display for photographers. Though the Xperia 1 III will come with the same OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. But the modification here is the display is a 6.5-inches 4K screen which is quite bigger than Xperia 5 III display (6.1 inches). This phone will land with dimensions of 165x71x8.2mm, and 186g weight. It will surely keep the IP68 rating too. It will also hold a 4500mah battery to run the handset.
