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
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.
3.5mm audio jack for ultimate sound quality
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. Distortion is reduced, especially between mid and max volume, and that brings more realistic sound – with clear ensembles, smooth vocals, and deep basslines.
An immersive viewing experience
With its stunning 6.1" 21:9 CinemaWide™ HDR OLED 120Hz Refresh rate display, and no notches on the screen to interrupt your view, the Xperia 5 III is made for movie lovers.
Like being there live 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 5 III, you can enjoy the experience through wired or wireless headphones or the built-in Full-stage stereo speakers.
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 5 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.
Full-stage stereo speakers for powerful, high-quality sound
Positioned at the front of the phone, the Xperia 5 III features Full-stage stereo speakers to deliver immersive, high-quality sound when playing music or videos.
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.
Fluid motion with 120Hz
On the native 120Hz Refresh rate display, 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. 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.
Four versatile lenses give you more creative options
With its four versatile lens options up to 105mm, you can expand your repertoire of shots and take your cinematography to the next level.
Precise and fast moves
The Xperia 5 III supports 240Hz Touch scanning rate, meaning the action happens exactly as you intended for precision control. And with Fast Touch response, the system recognises your touch at the precise moment you intended.
