Compact yet powerful, the Xperia 5 III blends its predecessor’s remarkable AF speed with new optics reaching up to 105mm. From imaging to gaming, this is a hand-fit smartphone that goes above and beyond your expectations.
In a world of ever larger smartphones, the Xperia 5 III shows there is another way. Boasting 5G speed, powerful performance and impressive battery life, it packs the latest Sony camera, display, sound and gaming technologies into a compact design that’s easy to use one-handed.
The Xperia 5 III was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 9 series cameras, renowned for their industry-leading autofocus technology, and with input from professional photographers, who helped tune the technology and refine the photographic experience and results. Key features include fast AF in all three cameras, plus object tracking technology to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects.
ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia smartphone. The ZEISS T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.
Expand your creative possibilities with four versatile lenses in a triple camera and fast, accurate AF across all cameras. Thanks to Dual PDAF sensors, Continuous AF keeps focus on moving subjects, while Sony’s unique telephoto system supports fast AF even at extended focal lengths.
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.
With four versatile lens options, the Xperia 5 III puts a huge variety of shots within your reach.
Object tracking locks on to fast-moving subjects
Now you can keep fast-moving subjects in sharp focus even if they temporarily move out of sight. Simply specify the subject you want to stay focused on by touching it on the display, and let object tracking do the rest.
Experience Real-time Eye AF – for humans and animals
Real-time Eye AF lets you take stunning portraits, whether you’re photographing people or animals. Even if your subject is on the move or one eye is covered, you’ll capture memorable images full of energy and expression.
Unlike conventional digital zoom, which compromises image quality, the Xperia 5 III features new AI super resolution zoom, which uses Sony’s AI processing to restore detail and definition to your pictures.
With its stunning 6.1″ 21:9 CinemaWide™ HDR OLED 120Hz Refresh rate display, and no notches on the screen to interrupt your view, the Xperia 5 III is made for movie lovers.
Dolby Atmos® sound, tuned in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment
Watching a movie with Dolby Atmos® is an immersive experience, with multi-dimensional sound flowing above and around you. Now you can experience Dolby Atmos® sound tuned in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment with headphones or the Full-stage stereo speakers.
Thanks to improvements to materials and electronic components, the 3.5mm audio jack on the Xperia 5 III not only offers convenience but also delivers high fidelity sound quality. Distortion is reduced, especially between mid and max volume, and that brings more realistic sound – with clear ensembles, smooth vocals, and deep basslines.
