Sony is expected to unveil the Xperia 1 III soon, but CAD renders have already shown what the upcoming flagship will probably look like. Now, LetsGoDigital and Concept Creator have collaborated to create detailed models, which could be mistaken for the real thing.

Sony improved in many areas from the Xperia 1 with the Xperia 1 II, not least with better cameras, a larger battery, and wireless charging support. The Xperia 1 II retained the 4K display of its predecessor though, which despite being colour accurate and bright, peaked at 60 Hz. Thankfully, this year's model is expected to feature a 120 Hz panel, mirroring the refresh rate of the Xperia 5 II.

While Sony is yet to announce the Xperia 1 III, OnLeaks published CAD renders of the device last month. Now, LetsGoDigital and Concept Creator have combined to create lifelike models of the Xperia 1 III, offering arguably the best look at the device so far. Concept Creator has also published a video of an 'Xperia 1 III introduction' video, which could be mistaken for an official marketing video, in our opinion.

Sony is expected to upgrade the Xperia 1 in more areas than just a higher refresh rate, though. Apparently, the company will include UFS 3.1 flash storage in the Xperia 1 III, an upgrade that should give the device faster read and write speeds than its predecessor. Moreover, Sony will supposedly equip the next Xperia 1 with a 50 MP primary camera, up from 12 MP in the Xperia 1 II. Additionally, a periscope camera should provide superior images at high zoom levels than the current model's 70 mm 12 MP camera. According to OnLeaks, Sony will announce the Xperia 1 III within a few weeks.
