After renders of Sony Xperia 10 III and upcoming Xperia Compact that surfaced recently, now the renders of the upcoming Xperia 1 III flagship phone has surfaced, thanks to @OnLeaks. This reveals that the phone will stick to 6.5-inch 21:9 CinemaWide 4K HDR display, which is same as the predecessor, but the bezels on the front have been reduced.
The phone is said to come with a metal frame and a glass back and measure 161.6 x 67.3 x 8.4~9.6mm (including the camera bump). It reveals triple rear cameras with ZEISS optics with T* (T-Star) anti-reflective coating along with a 3D ToF sensor, similar to the predecessor, but the exact camera specifications are not known yet. However, the final camera will use a periscope lens offering better optical zoom.
The phone is said to retain dual front firing speakers as well as the 3.5mm headphone jack. In addition to camera shutter button there is a dedicated shortcut button which we had seen on the Xperia PRO that started rolling out earlier this week. It should be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 888 5nm 5G Mobile Platform.
The Sony Xperia 1 III is expected to roll out starting from Spring 2021 and the announcement is expected sometime in late February or early March.
