Shoppers who pre-order or buy the Sony Xperia 1 III within the offer time period can expect to be rewarded with a free set of headphones that are worth at least over US$200. However, which headphones you will receive will depend on where you buy the upcoming Xperia 1 III. Those ordering the flagship smartphone in the US will get the WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling earbuds (US$230 value) while customers in European countries like the UK or Germany will get the WH-1000XM3 over-ear headphones (£329/€379) as part of the introductory offer.
Gamers in the US who are interested in the Sony Xperia 1 III bundle bonus will be delighted to find that along with the highly praised earbuds they will also get 43,200 Cod points for Call of Duty: Mobile, which apparently has a value of a whopping US$540. It’s a mixed bag of a pre-order bundle for the Xperia 1 III, as many were hoping for the new Sony XM4 earbuds or headphones, especially as the XM3 series of audio accessories were also offered as part of the bundle package with the Xperia 1 II. Unfortunately, it’s likely the Cod points are going to be worthless for many buyers, too.
But there is a silver, or frosted purple, lining to this cloud for Sony Xperia 1 III buyers in the US. While shoppers in the UK and Germany are already presented with a choice between purple and black, the former color seemed a less likely option for customers in North America. However, a US advertisement for the phone shows the purple unit, and more promisingly, the official Sony US product page states “The Xperia 1 III is available in a choice of colors to suit your taste” while showing both the frosted black version and the frosted purple variant.
