Sony unveiled the Xperia 1 III last month with the first telephoto periscope lens with a variable focus (most devices have fixed focus). According to tipster Ice Universe, Samsung will include this feature in the Galaxy S22 Ultra next year. There are four focal lengths available for photos and videos, 16mm, 24mm, 70mm and 105mm.
It’s actually nice to see a company including a feature one year earlier than Samsung.
Sony Xperia 1 III Camera, Display, Chipset and charging Features
ZACKBUCKS have posted some live images in Weibo claiming that they are the sample photos snapped using the rear cameras of the Xperia 1 III. While the EXIF data has been deleted, we can however confirm that three shots of the same photos were taken with 24mm, 70mm (2.9x zoom), and 105mm (4.4x zoom) focal lengths. Other photo samples from the shot are pretty much random.
The display panel of the Xperia 1 III is 4K HDR OLED with a size of 6.5-inch with 21:9 tall and thin aspect ratio. Then there is a 120Hz refresh rate enabled. Simply put, the display will be very good for streaming motion pictures and playing high graphic video games. But that is not all.
The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC built in 5nm process, and the camera array on back consists of three sensors and a Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor.
To keep the phone alive is a 4500mAh battery with 30W fast charger which takes the phone from 0-50% in 30 minutes. Color variants of the device is Frosted Black and Frosted Purple and it’s expected to ship into the United States later this summer with Android 11.
It’s RAM is 12GB paired with 256GB of internal storage. Uses a shared SIM card slot for storage expansion and it has 3.5mm jack.
It seems Sony had discussed about Shutting down its phone unit. With the current growth, it seems they might have a rethink.
