As you might expect, Xperia 1 III has some killer specifications that should appeal to photography enthusiasts. The 12-megapixel, 24mm-equivalent Exmor RS sensor is equipped with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and a time-of-flight sensor for collecting depth data. Sony said that this flagship is the world’s first mobile phone with “true” optical zoom, which is achieved by actually moving the telephoto lens element inside the mobile phone. The continuous shooting mode can take 20 photos per second.
Sony also claims that the 6.5-inch OLED display of this phone is the world’s first mobile 4K screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. Inside, there is Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 888 chipset, combined with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage space, and a 4,500mAh battery that supports wireless charging.
