Sony Xperia 1 II

Most recently, Sony introduced a very good flagship Xperia 5 II smartphone, capturing the attention of people who have already forgotten about the mobile division of the Japanese company. And now, the company is ready to present another new product – Xperia 1 III, the release of which will be announced early next year.

And although before the release of the smartphone, we have to wait for some weeks, there are already some leaks on the Web that reveal the features of the new product. The last major leak was due to a reliable Japanese insider with close ties to Sony.

Japanese publication AndroidNext reported that they have information about the smartphone, based on data provided by a trusted insider. According to this leak, the device will offer a noticeable upgrade in terms of the camera and display. At the same time, there is no reliable information about the size of the camera and its resolution.

According to the leak, the Sony Xperia 1 III display will have a higher brightness level, about 15% more than its predecessor. The refresh rate should also increase. There are also rumors that the display could get 4K resolution, but this has not been confirmed in the current leak.

In addition, we expect improvements to the main camera module. As for the selfie camera, the aperture size will increase for better low-light performance.

At the moment, this is the only information a reliable publication has, but, as always with leaks, we will soon find out more.

    If u r going to make it a new flagship phone, definitely wait for the Snapdragon 875…. And more than 12MP on the cameras, that is sort of a sad value these days even though it doesn't necessarily translate to quality improvement.

    If the can make it a hi ( qhd ) resolution WITH 120 hz display and keep the headphone jack ill sell my note 20 in 2 .2 seconds for it……..

    Iphone = still garbage hz
    no headphone jack
    No charger
    No headphones

    Samsuck= crappy resolution with higher hz when it feels like it
    no headphones
    no headphone jack
    weak charger

    Sony=Qhd with hi refresh rate
    With headphones
    With headphone jack
    Fastest charger

    Thats a easy win Sony you'd be an idiot not to do it..nows your chance
