Sony Xperia 1 III alleged specs and price leaked: 5G smartphone with Snapdragon 888 and 6.5-inch 4K OLED for US$1,199
The Sony Xperia line still has a loyal group of fans who will be pleased to hear about the alleged specs for the Sony Xperia 1 III 5G smartphone. Not only will the premium device sport an essential Snapdragon 888 SoC but it will boast of the kind of display enthusiasts will drool over. Being a Sony device, a lot can be expected from the screen, and it seems this will be delivered: 6.5-inch diagonal, 4K resolution, AMOLED type panel, HDR support, 120 Hz refresh rate.
On top of a first-class chipset and probably stunning display (apparently 15% brighter now), the Sony Xperia 1 III should offer 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage, although other configurations might be made available. As mentioned above, 5G is supported, and the next Xperia 1 will also be IP65/IP68 water and dust resistant according to the leak source. The fingerprint sensor will be fitted into the side of the smartphone, but the camera equipment is still a mystery. However, once again being Sony you could bet that the lenses will be of a very high standard.
Predictions from a separate source state up to 512 GB storage, a 5,000-mAh battery, and 650+ ppi display. There’s no denying this potential Sony Xperia 1 III has the potential to be a terrific purchase, but the price tag is yet again supposedly over US$1,000, which is a sharp contrast to the admittedly domestic prices of the Xiaomi Mi 11. At US$1,199, the Xperia 1 III will really have to perform, but at least the price tag hasn’t rocketed as the Xperia 1 II was launched at the same price point.
