FEATURES

Experience breathtaking speed in everything you do


Speed is at the very heart of the Xperia 1 III experience – from the immersive 4K HDR OLED display with its rapid 120Hz Refresh rate[FN|Display Refresh rate may vary according to settings, content availability and applications used.] to the triple lens camera which features fast AF even when shooting extended telephoto.

Outstanding ZEISS quality in your Xperia


ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia smartphone. The ZEISS T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.

Four versatile lens options to unleash your creativity


Expand your creative possibilities with four versatile lenses in a triple camera and fast, accurate AF across all cameras. Thanks to Dual PDAF sensors, Continuous AF keeps focus on moving subjects, while Sony's unique telephoto system supports fast AF even at extended focal lengths.

Experience Real-time Eye AF – for humans and animals[FN|Some performance restrictions may apply.]


Real-time Eye AF lets you take stunning portraits, whether you're photographing people or animals. Even if your subject is on the move or one eye is covered, you'll capture memorable images full of energy and expression.

Real-time Tracking[FN|Accuracy of the feature may vary according to environmental circumstances. Some performance restrictions may apply.] keeps fast-moving subjects in focus


Now you can keep the most challenging moving subjects in precise focus. Using AI and a 3D iToF sensor to measure distance, Real-time Tracking[FN|Accuracy of the feature may vary according to environmental circumstances. Some performance restrictions may apply.] can accurately detect and focus on a subject, then keep on tracking it even if it temporarily moves out of sight. To specify your subject, simply touch it on the Xperia 1 III display.

Discover Photography Pro – inspired by Alpha


With Photography Pro on the Xperia 1 III you'll find controls usually found on professional cameras. Using an interface inspired by Alpha cameras, you can choose manual controls or automatic settings and shoot in RAW. You can also enjoy new Basic mode for effortless shooting.

Immerse yourself in a 4K HDR OLED 120Hz Refresh rate display


Boasting a stunning 4K HDR OLED 120Hz Refresh rate[FN|Display Refresh rate may vary according to settings, content availability and applications used.] display, the Xperia 1 III offers a uniquely immersive viewing experience. And with no notches to interrupt your view on the 6.5" 21:9 CinemaWide™ display[FN|Display ratios may vary based on content formatting.], losing yourself in your favourite movies or TV shows has never been easier.

Fluid motion with 120Hz


On the native 120Hz Refresh rate display[FN|The feature may vary by content, game availability and compatibility.], fast-moving objects are rendered clearly for seriously smooth gameplay.

Strike first in the dark


An invaluable new gaming feature, L-? raiser (Low gamma raiser) makes it easier to see your opponents in the dark.[FN|The feature may vary by content, game availability and compatibility.] By enhancing image details in dark areas, it highlights your enemies without overexposing bright areas of the screen. So you can hit them before they hit you.

Precise and fast moves


The Xperia 1 III supports 240Hz Touch scanning rate[FN|The feature may vary by content, game availability and compatibility.] – 4x higher than the previous model – meaning the action happens exactly as you intended for precision control. And with Fast Touch response[FN|The feature may vary by content, game availability and compatibility.], the system recognises your touch at the precise moment you intended.

Hear your opponents coming


Audio equalizer lets you heighten sounds such as footsteps or gunshots, so you can hear your opponents coming and react before they do.[FN|The feature may vary by content, game availability and compatibility.]

3.5mm audio jack for ultimate sound quality


Thanks to improvements to materials and electronic components, the 3.5mm audio jack on the Xperia 1 III not only offers convenience but also delivers high fidelity sound quality. Distortion is reduced, especially between mid and max volume, and that brings more realistic sound – with clear ensembles, smooth vocals, and deep basslines.

Hear music as it was meant to be heard


With audio tuned in collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment, the Xperia 1 III has been engineered to deliver a truly authentic listening experience, whether you're using headphones or the built-in Full-stage stereo speakers.

Immerse yourself in sound all around you, as real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real. And with the Xperia 1 III, you can enjoy the experience through wired or wireless headphones or the built-in Full-stage stereo speakers.[FN|360 Reality Audio on the speakers is available only through Tidal. Third party terms, conditions, account, and fees may apply. Service availability may vary by market.]

Turn your stereo music into immersive 360 Spatial Sound


If the music source you’re listening to is 2-channel stereo, then new 360 Spatial Sound comes into play. It enables the Xperia 1 III to upmix your favourite stereo tracks into an immersive sound experience, in real time. The technology works with local audio files and streaming services to further enhance your listening experience.[FN|Some features may not be available for all services and contents. The effect may vary depending on the contents.]

The Xperia 1 III assesses the quality of available Wi-Fi before connecting so there's no more grabbing Wi-Fi that doesn't work. If it predicts any compromise in Wi-Fi connection quality, it uses your mobile data instead. With Xperia, you’re always on the best connection available.
