Xperia 1 III | 6.5” 21:9 4K HDR OLED 120Hz Display
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 to the triple lens camera which features fast AF even when shooting extended telephoto.
The Xperia 1 III was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 9 series cameras, renowned for their industry-leading autofocus technology, and with input from professional photographers, who helped tune the technology and refine the photographic experience and results. Key features include fast AF in all three cameras, plus Real-time Tracking technology for accurate shots of moving subjects.
ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia smartphone. The ZEISS T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.
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.
An optical telephoto lens up to 105mm with fast AF lets you capture moving subjects even at distance. Crucially, the two focal lengths are included in one telephoto module, complete with Dual PDAF sensors. So when you switch between 70mm and 105mm, the focal lens unit and the AF lens unit work in unison to focus fast.
With four versatile lens options, the Xperia 1 III puts a huge variety of shots within your reach.
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 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.
Combining quickfire 20fps burst shooting with 60fps continuous AF/AE calculation, the Xperia 1 III lets you capture images you woudn't think were possible with a smartphone.
Using continuous shooting in a low light situation? Thanks to BIONZ X™ for mobile engine, the Xperia 1 III produces images with less noise than its predecessor when using burst mode in low light.
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.
The Xperia 1 III has been designed to deliver great quality images even in low light situations.
The Xperia 1 III features a 12MP sensor, which offers reading speeds up to 3x faster than smartphone cameras with higher megapixel counts, and a 3D iToF sensor, which instantly calculates the distance between the camera and your subject. The result is fast, accurate autofocus in any scene.
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.
Just like a professional camera, the Xperia 1 III has a dedicated ergonomic shutter button, with an embossed finish for enhanced usability.
Unlike conventional digital zoom, which compromises image quality, the Xperia 1 III features new AI super resolution zoom, which uses Sony's AI processing to restore detail and definition to your pictures.
The Xperia 1 III makes it easy to capture striking images with artistic bokeh effects, adding another layer of creativity to your photography.
The Xperia 1 III features the very latest Optical SteadyShot™ with FlawlessEye™, which couples the image sensor's increased reading speed with Sony's original algorithm for optical image stabilisation. The result is supremely smooth, shake-free video footage.
To further enhance your photographic experience, you can use the Xperia 1 III remotely with your Alpha camera and as a professional-grade display.
