Sony’s most up-to-date flagship telephone was the Sony Xperia 1 II – that is the Xperia 1 Mark 2, in case you’re somewhat confused – and it appears as if work is properly underway on what we’re presuming goes to be the Sony Xperia 1 III.
Based on a fairly dependable Japanese source (through GSMArena), one of many key upgrades with subsequent 12 months’s handset will contain the display screen, which is ready to be some 15% brighter than the one sported by its predecessor.
Sony telephones are well-known for the standard of their shows, with all that TV tech experience coming into play, and we’re happy to listen to they’re getting higher nonetheless. Sony can also be the one telephone maker to supply 4K shows on its premium handsets, an innovation we hope it sticks with subsequent time round.
The opposite improve talked about within the report is to do with the selfie digicam: we’re apparently going to get a digicam with a wider aperture, which ought to imply extra flexibility in photo-taking, and improved efficiency in low gentle.
Xperia by the numbers
Regardless of all of the numbers and digits, Sony’s smartphone lineup is definitely comparatively simple to grasp in the meanwhile. You’ve got bought the Xperia 1 telephones because the flagships, the Xperia 5 telephones because the extra compact mid-rangers, and the Xperia 10 range because the price range alternative.
The final handset to be launched was the Sony Xperia 5 II (or Mark 2), one other telephone that we had been largely impressed by. With a lot high quality within the show and digicam sensor departments, it is arduous to go unsuitable with an Xperia telephone.
Sony’s issue is in getting extra folks to understand this and to change from the likes of Samsung, Apple and Google. If the Xperia 1 III is its subsequent try, we needs to be seeing it someday in February, if Sony follows the identical schedule in 2021 because it did in 2020 (although that is in no way sure).
The one different whisper we have heard in regards to the Xperia 1 III so far is that it’d come in several different versions and sizes, which might match what Apple and Samsung are doing with their flagship telephone traces. Little question there are extra leaks and rumors to return within the months forward, so keep tuned.
