Serious power in a hand-fit design
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.

Professional technology from Alpha cameras
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.

Outstanding ZEISS quality in your Xperia
ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia smartphone. The ZEISS T coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.

Four versatile lens options to unleash your creativity
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.

Lightning fast focus, even at long range
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.

Stunning images every time
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.

Create bokeh effects with basic mode
The Xperia 5 III makes it easy to capture striking images with artistic bokeh effects, adding another layer of creativity to your photography.

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.

Capture the previously impossible
Burst shooting at up to 20fps and low light noise reduction lets you take pictures you never thought possible with a smartphone.

Better quality burst shooting in low light
Using continuous shooting in a low light situation? Thanks to BIONZ X™ for mobile engine, the Xperia 5 III produces images with less noise than its predecessor when using burst mode in low light

A digital zoom with a difference
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.

Fast access to key camera features
Choose new Basic mode for fast access to a range of easy-to-use photography features including a touch shutter button, portrait orientation, Bokeh effect, Panorama, and more.

Photos with less noise in dark scenes
The Xperia 5 III has been designed to deliver great quality images even in low light situations.

Capture smooth, stable video

The Xperia 5 III features the very latest Optical SteadyShot™ with FlawlessEye™, which couples the image sensor's increased reading speed with Sony's original algorithm for optical image stabilisation. The result is supremely smooth, shake-free video footage.

An immersive viewing experience
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.

Everything you watch, remastered to perfection
The X1™ for mobile engine brings BRAVIA HDR remaster technology to everything you watch. Even streaming content will have more contrast, colour and clarity.

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.

Experience colour as the creators intended
Enjoy your favourite movies and TV shows with colour exactly as the creators intended. Creator mode "powered by CineAlta" delivers unprecedented colour accuracy, referencing the colour reproduction of Sony professional colour monitors used in leading Hollywood studio productions.

Hear music as it was meant to be heard
With audio tuned in collaboration with Sony Music Entertainment, the Xperia 5 III has been engineered to deliver a truly authentic listening experience, whether you're using headphones or the built-in Full-stage stereo speakers.

3.5mm audio jack for ultimate sound quality
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.

Like being there live with the artist

Immerse yourself in sound all around you, as real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real. And with the Xperia 5 III, you can enjoy the experience through wired or wireless headphones or the built-in Full-stage stereo speakers.

Turn your stereo music into immersive 360 Spatial Sound
If the music source you’re listening to is 2-channel stereo, then new 360 Spatial Sound comes into play. It enables the Xperia 5 III to upmix your favourite stereo tracks into an immersive sound experience, in real time. The technology works with local audio files and streaming services to further enhance your listening experience.

Full-stage stereo speakers for powerful, high-quality sound
Positioned at the front of the phone, the Xperia 5 III features Full-stage stereo speakers to deliver immersive, high-quality sound when playing music or videos.

Improve the quality of all your music with AI
DSEE Ultimate enhances the quality of all your digital music, using AI to automatically improve audio frequency and dynamic range in real-time. Both high and low ranges are improved taking each track close to High-Resolution Audio quality. It works with wired or wireless headphones, on local files and even streaming services.

A wider view. Advantage you.
With its 21:9 CinemaWide™ display , the Xperia 5 III gives you a much wider view of the action – a major advantage in those close-fought contests.

Fluid motion with 120Hz
On the native 120Hz Refresh rate display, fast-moving objects are rendered clearly for seriously smooth gameplay.

Experience blur-free action
With 240Hz Motion blur reduction the display updates the image an incredible 240 times per second for blur-free action.

Maintain peak performance with custom display settings
The Xperia 5 III lets you adjust white balance, so you can see the action more clearly and spot your opponents more easily. It's more comfortable for your eyes too so you can play for longer without feeling the strain.

Strike first in the dark
An invaluable new gaming feature, L-γ raiser (Low gamma raiser) makes it easier to see your opponents in the dark. By enhancing image details in dark areas, it highlights your enemies without overexposing bright areas of the screen. So you can hit them before they hit you.

Improve gameplay with custom audio settings
Audio is another important element for immersive gaming, so the Xperia 5 III offers a number of features to make it as clear and defined as possible.

Accuracy is everything
For those games where you need exceptional accuracy combined with fast fingers, the Xperia 5 III gives you the edge.

Record and share your gameplay

Overheating prevention
When using a charging cable for gaming, Heat Suppression power control powers the phone systems directly rather than charging the battery. This reduces thermal stress, helping to maintain gaming performance and keep your battery healthy for longer.
