Sony Mobile has a new product launch event set for April 14th. According to reports, the company's new flagship phone is expected to be unveiled that day: the Sony Xperia 1 III. The device would be accompanied by at least one additional lower-end model. Before the event, the key specifications of the Sony Xperia 1 III have been leaked.

This would be the new Sony Xperia 1 III


The leak comes from the Chinese social network Weibo. According to what the informant points out in his publication, the Sony Xperia 1 III will boast a 6.5-inch OLED screen with 4K resolution and HDR support. The panel will also enjoy a high 120Hz refresh rate, a 10-bit color depth, and a maximum brightness of 1,300 nits.


It is also revealed that it will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 mobile platform. The hardware will be completed with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM. The phone can come with up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. For China, the device can offer a version with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.


The rear area of ​​the future premium mobile device would be home to a triple camera system with powerful photographic capabilities. The configuration would be composed of a 64-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 12-megapixel periscope telephoto sensor with optical zoom (maximum zoom of up to 60x).

The periscope lens would be powered by Sony's proprietary Cyber-Shot optimizations. There are still no details about the front camera of the smartphone.


The future Xperia 1 III would be powered by a large 5,000mAh battery. This results in a great improvement over the "fair" capacity of 4,000mAh that is present in its predecessor. The capacity of its battery would not be the only notable improvement in this section, since its fast charge would also be enhanced to the extreme. We would go from the 21W fast charge present in its predecessor to a 65W super fast charge via USB-C.

System and price

Of course, it would run the stock Android 11 operating system under the Japanese giant's signature lightweight custom layer. To conclude, it is said that Sony's Xperia 1 III may be available in the Chinese market from June and that its starting price would be set at 8,999 yuan ( about 1,165 euros or 1,370 dollars ).

For now, this is all that is known about Sony's new flagship phone. We will be aware of the news that arises around the Xperia 1 III in the coming days.
