Sony cannot be satisfied with the manufacturer of cases and accessories Olixar after it leaked images of some of its cases to Sony’s Xperia 1 III smartphone. The problem for Sony was that not only did Olixar show off its clear boxes, but the renderings show Sony’s smartphone essentially naked before the official launch. The reports indicate that the images leaked by Olixar look the same as some previous depictions of the device leaked in 2020, with at least one change.
The big change has to do with the rear camera. The telephoto lens of the rear camera is a periscope. The ZEISS T * logo can be seen on the back of the smartphone, indicating who manufactures the optics and that specialized coding is used on the lenses. Compared to the previously leaked renderings, the location of the LED flash and the 3D ToF sensors has been moved.
The fingerprint reader for the smartphone is on the side of the device and below it is a shortcut key of the type seen on the Xperia Pro. Something that should excite audiophiles with their favorite set of wired headsets is that a port 3.5 mm headphone jack is integrated. The shape of the device is the classic smartphone candy bar style with a tall, relatively narrow design.
The screen is expected to be a 6.5-inch 4K OLED brighter than some used on previous models. Other reports indicate that Sony is improving the selfie camera sensor to offer a brighter aperture. The size and resolution of the sensor will remain the same as the sensors used in the previous devices.
Another device commented on is the Sony Xperia 10 III, which will be below the Xperia 1 III in Sony’s hierarchy. It should have a 6.0-inch screen and be Sony’s first mid-size 5G smartphone. Sony is having an event on April 14th, where a new smartphone or smartphones will be unveiled. More details are expected on that date.
