Serious power in a hand fit design

In a world of ever larger smartphones, the Xperia 5 III shows there is another way. Boasting powerful performance and impressive battery life, it packs the latest Sony camera, display, sound and gaming technologies into a compact design that's easy to use one-handed. 

Professional technology from Alpha cameras

The Xperia 5 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 object tracking technology to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects.

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

Thanks to improvements to materials and electronic components, the 3.5mm audio jack on the Xperia 5 III not only offers convenience but also delivers high fidelity sound quality.
