The Sony Xperia 1 III is a feast for your eyes.

The stunning 6.5 inch OLED 4K display features a 1644 x 3840 resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and 21:9 aspect ratio, so movies, videos, photos and box sets all look incredible to enhance your immersion. OLED technology delivers incredibly rich, natural colours and deeper blacks. With 70% of all Netflix films made in 21:9, you're set up for great entertainment. The Xperia 1 III is also ideal for using two apps at once side by side. So, you can see more, scroll less and multitask with ease.

If taking photos is your thing, you'll love the triple-lens camera at the back - there's a 12MP Dual Pixel main sensor in partnership with a 12MP telephoto lens and an 12MP ultra-wide lens. What's more, an optical telephoto lens up to 105mm with fast AF lets you capture moving subjects even at distance. Crucially, the two focal lengths are included in one telephoto module, complete with Dual PDAF sensors, so when you switch between 70mm and 105mm, the focal lens unit and the AF lens unit work in unison to focus fast. You can even shoot 4K video at 120fps. There's a 8MP snapper at the front for selfies too.

With a high 4500mAh capacity, the battery gives you power you can rely on, as well as being compatible with 30W Fast Charging. What's more, the Xperia 1 III is just 8.2mm thin, so it's comfortable in your hand - perfect for days on the go. Boasting IP65/68 rating water resistance, it's ready for the weather too.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G chipset works with 12GB RAM and the new Android 11 to ensure everything happens fast and smooth, including streaming and downloads.
