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 120Hz Refresh rate 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 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.
Real-time Tracking 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 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.

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.
Precise and fast moves
The Xperia 1 III supports 240Hz Touch scanning rate – 4x higher than the previous model – 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.
Hear your opponents coming

3.5mm audio jack for ultimate sound quality
Thanks to improvements to materials and electronic components, the 3.5mm audio jack on the Xperia 1 III not only offers convenience but also delivers high fidelity sound quality.
