mood posted a topic in Mobile NewsSony will announce its next Xperia phone on April 14th It might launch a new phone called the Xperia 1 III. Sony Sony has quietly updated the official Xperia page's YouTube banner to reveal that it's announcing a new product in a couple of weeks. As noticed by Droid Life, the banner says the company is launching a new Xperia product on April 14th at 4:30PM Japan time or 3:30AM Eastern time in the US. Seeing as Sony used Xperia's YouTube banner for the announce reveal, it'll likely stream the event on the video platform. The company didn't say what kind of product it's unveiling, but rumored specs for a phone that's reportedly named Xperia 1 III have been going around. According to those rumors, the phone will have specifications to rival other companies' flagship devices. It will reportedly have a 6.5-inch 4K OLED display with a 21:9 aspect ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate, as well as a periscope lens that will be made in-house by Sony’s CyberShot division. The phone is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, the brand's latest premium processor for smartphones, and can have up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. Other possible features include a 5,000mAh battery, an SD slot and a headphone jack. The model will reportedly cost around US$1,370 when converted from Chinese Yuan, which doesn't come as a surprise, seeing as Xperia 1 II was priced at $1,200 at launch. We'll know for sure on April 14th — we'll let you know by then if Sony indeed unveils a new phone. Source: Sony will unveil a new Xperia device on April 14th
Leaked Sony Xperia 1 III images showcase triple-camera setup, side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 3.5mm audio jack, and more Thanks to prolific leaker @OnLeaks, we have our first look at Sony's upcoming Xperia 1 III flagship smartphone. It features three rear cameras; one of which is a periscope lens. A side-mounted fingerprint sensor, an all-glass body and a programmable button are also included. Here's what the sony Xperia 1 III has in store for us (image via @OnLeaks) Some time ago, we got our first glimpse at Sony's upcoming mid-range Xperia 10 III smartphone. Shortly after, Sony launched a ridiculously-priced Xperia Pro that is essentially an Xperia 1 II with a mmWave antenna and an HDMI port. Now, we have our first look at the true Xperia 1 II successor, the Xperia 1 III. Once again, the information comes from renowned leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer aka @OnLeaks via Voice. One can't help but notice the striking resemblance the Sony Xperia 1 III has to its predecessor. Sony is one of the few companies that has refused to cave into the notch/hole-punch display trend, and that doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon. The Sony Xperia 1 III will carry forward its predecessor's legacy with its 6.5-inch OLED HDR 10 4K screen, something that the likes of Samsung still haven't caught up to. An earlier rumor told us that it could be clocked at 120Hz. Moving on to the back of the Sony Xperia 1 III, we get three rear cameras and a ToF sensor. Little is known about the actual camera configuration, though Steve says that one of them is a periscope lens. One can only hope that the upgrades are more significant this time around, as the Sony Xperia 1 II's cameras were only marginally better than that of the Xperia 1. The leak also suggests that the smartphone will be 5G-ready, so we're probably looking at a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC under the hood. Both sides of the Sony Xperia 1 III will be protected by a later of Corning Gorilla Glass. It also gets a dedicated programmable button, something that debuted alongside the Sony Xperia Pro. Lastly, the phone's fingerprint scanner has been baked into the power button. The Sony Xperia 1 III is one of the few flagship devices that still believes in the 3.5mm audio jack, so props to Sony for that.
