Sony’s latest Android smartphone iteration focuses again on cameras as the main highlight. The biggest evolutionary leap is in the main chamber with a variable telephoto lens between the equivalent of 70 mm and 105 mm.

Both the Sony Xperia 1 III and Sony Xperia 5 III are high-end smartphones, with the latter being the compact option, without sacrificing processing power, or photographic capabilities. Indeed, it is in photography where both Sony can really stand out!

The main selling point of the new Xperia smartphones is the main camera with one of the objectives to provide a variable magnification between the equivalent of 70 mm to 105 mm. This translates to 2.9x to 4.4x optical zoom, therefore, without loss of quality.

The sensor that comes with this variable telephoto lens has 12 MP of resolution, manufactured by Sony with 1 / 2.9 ” in size. The focal length of the lens varies between f / 2.3 and f / 2.8 depending on the focal length, with optical image stabilization (OIS).

Sony has also improved the digital zoom, which is now capable of simulating a focal length of up to 300 mm. Previously it was only 200 mm in the Sony Xperia 1 II, in both cases with little loss of quality in this digital magnification.

There are four cameras at the rear of the new Sony Xperia

The main camera of the rear system uses a sensor with 12 MP of resolution, from Sony, with 1 / 1.7 ” of dimension. It is equipped with a standard focal length lens (24 mm), a focal length of f / 1.7 and optical image stabilization (OIS).

This is followed by the 12 MP camera with a 1 / 2.6 ” size sensor and ultra-wide-angle lens. It has a focal aperture of f / 2.2 and autofocus, something rare in cameras ultrawide, even on high-end smartphones.

Finally, we have an auxiliary camera to streamline the focus, augmented reality engine and enhance the effect bokeh, the iToF 3D sensor as the fourth camera of this main photographic system on both Sony Xperia smartphones.

The spirit Alpha is present on Sony Xperia

We emphasize that Sony uses a special lens coating to reduce chromatic aberrations, distortion and other artifacts. This is where your collaboration with ZEISS, famous for its lenses and lenses, comes in.

We have several assets familiar to users of Sony Alpha cameras. Among these we highlight the Eye AF focusing system that has made Sony a reference in this sector, working on animals and humans.

We also have here the Optical SteadyShot (software mode), as well as the possibility of recording video in Ultra-HD resolution (4K) up to 120 fps for recordings in super slow motion in the highest quality possible.

Finally, the front camera for selfies remains unchanged compared to last year. We have the same 8 MP sensor on both, but with a secondary 3D ToF sensor to improve the effect bokeh – only present on Sony Xperia 1 III.

The screen is the biggest difference between Sony Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III

Identical in terms of photography, it is on the screen that we find the differences between the Sony Xperia 1 III and Sony Xperia 5 III. The first – largest – has a 6.5 inch screen with 4K resolution and cinematic format 21: 9, with refresh rate at 120 Hz and HDR.

The Sony Xperia 5 III is also capable of reaching the refresh rate at 120 Hz, but uses a smaller screen of 6.1, OLED panel with Full-HD resolution and the same cinematic format of 21: 9. It also features HDR content.

On both Sony Xperia smartphones we have Qualcomm’s flagship processor, the Snapdragon 888.

In the Xperia 1 III model we have 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB or 512 GB of internal storage. The Xperia 5 III has 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of internal storage.

Both phones have support for dual-SIM and expansion via micro SD memory card. They also have audio input jack 3.5 mm to connect earphones, headphones, among other accessories.

Both smartphones use the same battery with 4500 mAh with support for fast charging at 30 W (50% of charge in 30 minutes), with Sony promising a longevity of 3 years. Here the Xperia 1 III has wireless charging, the Xperia 5 III does not.

We also have dual speakers and strong optimization for games, with reduced screen ghosting, as well as other image optimizations. We can even record the screen at 1080 up to 120 fps to later share the gameplay.

The price of the new Sony Xperia has not been revealed, but arrive in the summer

Finally, the last difference between the Sony Xperia 1 III and the Sony Xperia 5 III lies in the type of glass used to protect the screen. The first uses the latest Gorilla Glass Victus and the second uses the previous generation Gorilla Glass 6.

Both phones are IP65 / 68 certified which gives them water and dust resistance.

The price has not been confirmed, with both phones hitting the market in the summer.
