Sony unveils Xperia 1 III – flagship smartphone with advanced camera, 4K display and headphone jack
Today the Japanese company Sony has unveiled a new generation of flagship smartphones. The most advanced of the new products is the Xperia 1 III, which combines all of the company’s advanced developments, including a telescopic zoom lens combined with a Dual-PD sensor and a 4K OLED display with HDR support and 120Hz refresh rate. By the way, this is the first time such a matrix is used in smartphones.
The heart of the device is the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, which is currently the most advanced solution on the market. The chipset works in conjunction with 12 GB of RAM, and the capacity of the built-in storage is 256 GB.
Sony traditionally paid special attention to the main camera of the smartphone. Xperia 1 III received three 12-megapixel Exmor RS sensors. An f / 1.7 wide-angle lens complements the main 1 / 1.7-inch sensor. Another 1 / 2.6-inch sensor works in conjunction with ultra-wide-angle optics. As for the 1 / 2.9-inch sensor, Sony decided to combine it with a telescopic zoom lens with available apertures of f / 2.3 and f / 2.8. It is worth noting that the camera optics were developed in collaboration with ZEISS. The module also includes a 3D iToF sensor. The smartphone camera allows continuous shooting, capturing up to 20 frames per second. Traditionally for Sony flagships, the shutter control is brought to a separate physical key on the case’s side. The front camera is represented by an 8-megapixel sensor and is located above the display.
The smartphone’s screen is also outstanding. The Xperia 1 III uses a 6.5-inch AMOLED matrix with a 21: 9 aspect ratio, 4K resolution, and 120Hz refresh rate. HDR support declared. The matrix is covered with the latest tempered glass Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.
Separately, it should be said about the audio capabilities of the device. The Xperia 1 III boasts a 3.5mm audio jack, which is now rare in flagship devices. The manufacturer claims it is the world’s first smartphone capable of playing 360 Reality Audio through its built-in stereo speakers.
Sony also focuses on software features that make the Xperia 1 III a great choice for mobile gamers. We are talking about the ability to record gameplay at a rate of 120 frames per second and the Ly raiser gamma boost function, which increases the detail and brightness of the image in dark areas. Also worth noting is PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller support. The Xperia 1 III boasts a 4500mAh battery that Sony says can last three years without losing capacity. With 30W fast charging, the battery can be recharged to 50 percent in 30 minutes.
The smartphone will be available in black, gray, and lilac colors. Acceptance of pre-orders starts today. The cost of the device is 100 thousand rubles; you can pre-order by following the link.
