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 120 Hz Refresh rate1 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 animals2

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 Tracking3 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 Tracking3 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 120 Hz Refresh rate1 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 display4, losing yourself in your favorite movies or TV shows has never been easier.

Fluid motion with 120Hz

On the native 120Hz Refresh rate display5, fast-moving objects are rendered clearly for seriously smooth gameplay.

Strike first in the dark

An invaluable new gaming feature, L-γ raiser (Low gamma raiser) makes it easier to see your opponents in the dark.5 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 rate5-4x higher than the previous model-meaning the action happens exactly as you intended for precision control. And with fast touch response5, the system recognizes 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.5.

3.5 mm audio jack for ultimate sound quality

Thanks to improvements to materials and electronic components, the 3.5 mm 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.

Experience 360 Reality Audio6-like you're there with the artist

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.7.

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 favorite 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.8.
