The new Sony Xperia 1 III.

Sony's mobile phone department, like other firms, is not living at its best. The competition is fierce (especially the one that comes from China) and every time we can find better mobile phones at lower prices. Despite all this, Sony smartphones have a certain charm and If they stand out for something, it is for their photographic section.

In this device, Sony has decided not to bet on the high-resolution sensors in its new reference device. Instead, remains conservative by providing a 12 megapixel triple camera.

However, we do find a great novelty such as the inclusion of a variable telephoto system built into the 12 megapixel telephoto sensor. Thanks to a special lens system, the sensor allows to vary between a focal length of 70 and 105 millimeters equivalent without the need to resort to extra sensors.

Besides that, we have a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle camera, and an 8 megapixel front selfie sensor.

For all of the above and as we read in GSMArena, Sony had to recruit optical, software and image quality engineers from Alpha, commissioning them to develop an experience similar to the one that photography professionals enjoy.

However, This Sony Xperia 1 III not only stands out for its camera. It also has the fashionable processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 which is accompanied by 12 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of internal storage.

The battery has 4,500 mAh capacity, and the 30W fast charge is not lacking. All this at a price of about 1,119 euros.
