Sony launched the flagship Xperia 1 III smartphone a few months ago, but until now, Sony has only announced the price and official release date. Accordingly, Xperia 1 III will be sold on August 19 in the US market, with a price of $1,299.99. Sony says customers can pre-order from today.
The previous Xperia 1 II was priced at $1,200, a pretty high price even when compared to current flagship smartphones like the iPhone 12 Pro Max or Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. This year, Sony continues to increase the price of Xperia 1 III by 100 USD. However, the Xperia 1 III has many worthwhile upgrades.
Last year’s Xperia 1 II had a powerful configuration, but no 5G yet. The Xperia 1 III already supports 5G connectivity. In addition, the screen of the Xperia 1 III is upgraded with a frequency of 120Hz. The battery capacity of 4,500 mAh is also larger than before.
Xperia 1 III continues to be a smartphone focused on Sony’s photography capabilities. The smartphone is equipped with a periscope telephoto camera that can change focus. In addition, the specifications of the Xperia 1 III are also worthy of a high-end flagship, with the Snapdragon 888 processor.
During the pre-order promotion, Sony is giving away the WF-1000XM3 wireless headphones for free with Xperia 1 III orders before June 29.
However, the high price of the Xperia 1 III will still be a barrier that few users can own this smartphone. While the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra costs from $ 1,199, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max costs from $ 1,099.
