Snapdragon 888, 4K screen, 120 Hz, 4500 mAh, IP68, charger included, Zeiss optics and… old 12-megapixel image sensors. The compact flagship Sony Xperia 1 III presented



Sony today unveiled the next generation of its flagship Xperia 1, the Xperia 1 III. The novelty, if I may say so, continues the traditions of its predecessors: there is an excellent OLED screen of ultra-high resolution 4K, a battery with an average capacity of 4500 mAh and a multi-module camera with sensors of an unimpressive resolution of 12 megapixels.

Why Sony, which supplies other manufacturers with large optical format and much higher resolution sensors, does not want to install such sensors in its smartphones is a big mystery. The opinion that “megapixels do not decide” is hardly appropriate in this case: Sony Xperia 1 II, released last year, is in the fifth hundred smartphones in the DxOMark rating. Even the two-year-old flagships Samsung and Huawei shoot better. Of course, Sony Xperia 1 III will perform better than its predecessor in camera tests, but hardly cardinally.

In fact, the main camera of Sony Xperia 1 III has four modules – the main one (it uses a wide-angle lens with a focal length of 24 mm and an aperture of f / 1.7), an additional one (with an ultra-wide-angle lens with a focal length of 16 mm and an aperture of f / 2, 2), as well as a periscope module with a focal length of 70 and 105 mm and apertures of F / 2.3 and F / 2.8 and a 3D ToF module. The front camera uses an 8 megapixel sensor. The optical format of the sensors used in this model’s main camera is from 1 / 1.7 “to 1 / 2.9”. That is, there is no talk at all about really large matrices about an inch in size.

The smartphone is built on a single-chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 platform, has 12 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of flash memory. The 6.5-inch OLED display features 4K resolution and 120Hz frame rate. It also supports HDR. The battery capacity of the device, as mentioned above, is 4500 mAh, the smartphone comes with a 30 W power supply (50% charge in 30 minutes). Other features of the model are the presence of a standard headphone jack, protection of the display with hardened Gorilla Glass Victus and protection of the case in accordance with the degree of IP68.

The smartphone has three colors – black, gray and purple. Sales will start in the summer, and the price will be announced closer to the start of sales. But, traditionally for a Japanese company, the novelty will not be cheap.
